"Outside the box" coaching options.


With all the Tom Bradley and JoePa talk, it made me think of the coaching situation. There has been a lot of discussion whether or not Bradley will take the Pitt vacancy should the opportunity present itself. If he does, it could signal the beginning of the end of the Paterno regime.

This could all be much ado about nothing. However, one thing is for certain. Sooner or later, Joseph Vincent Paterno will no longer be the coach. There has been much speculation about who the next coach could and should be. I think we all agree that it needs to be somebody who upholds the reputation that Penn State has, that it is first an institution of higher learning and then a football program secondly. This has made me do a little thinking and two names that nobody has mentioned that could be considered "outside the box" yet still in the Penn State way and the Penn State family. Fran Ganter and Jerry Sandusky.

I know both of these gentlemen are in their 60s and they may have no interest in the position. Also, due to their age, we might not get more than 5-10 years out of them but both were mentioned at one time or another in their respective careers as heir apparents to the postion. So if Bradley were to take the Pitt job and remove himself from the equation it could possibly open the door for something like this. Or am I crazy for even thinking they are viable options?
