Thoughts on Harvard's Coach Murphy

I occasionally golf with a former player of Coach Murphy at Harvard. I asked him his thoughts on Coach Murphy to Penn State and received the following reply. (Note some Harvard bias....)

...to Murphy, I think he would do VERY well as the leading man in Happy Valley. He is a very disciplined guy, and has always been great at maximizing talent. His W-L speaks for itself, had a stint at Cincinnati, and did okay. He flourished in the IVY League, and is a very good offensive game-planner, but always made sure our best athletes were on defense (besides QB of course ;). But, to be honest, I don't think he will leave Cambridge until his last child is admitted into the College, which makes A LOT of sense to me. Maybe next round? Which could be in another 50+ years. But I can't speak for him, I'm sure the man has goals of getting a top job at some point. If Harvard were allowed to participate in playoff action, I'm sure we would be in the mix every year...

....So, seems like a long shot in every respect, his as well as PSU's. I did like the comment about best athletes to defense
