    He was around so long I forgot he was still alive ; he was a great silent type coach . Didn’t realize that he was great multi-sport athlete too

    Tough environment for HC’s. Fewer kids playing at all levels. D1 programs get the few college offers and NIH cash. You get a good player he transfers to a D1 because he would rather sit on the bench with a SJB then play for a D10. Parents want more and more attention. D10 kids would rather smoke dope than practice. Still about 50 HC openings in so-cal with each needing 5 or more asst coaches. Perfect time for the woman that loves football to do her Goldie Hawn impression in CIF football.

    The official Vikings statement about Grant’s passing is that the organization is “saddened and shocked.” OK, I’m totally onboard with the saddened aspect, but who can say they were “shocked” that a man couldn’t live longer than 95 years?
