I think the guy is thrilled at the chance . He took a major leap of faith taking the PSU job and did well and now he gets to do what he seems to have wanted . This seems to be more exceptional when you consider all the retreads .
On a side note Lombardi didn't get a chance to coach until later on in his career . It wasn't until Green Bay was turned down again by a coach that someone recommended Vince . In the book " When Pride Still Mattered " Lombardi said it was because he was a Sicilian Catholic .
A little about Colleen. She's the brains behind the operation. Magna cum laude from BC, top five in her law school class, so obviously I have a pretty good idea how to recruit, I can tell you that.
