Emails with Tom Bradley

I sent an email to Tom Bradley and he responded within 15 minutes. It pains me that he probably wont be part Penn State next year but I wanted to share the emails. Let's try to remember what he wants for Penn State.

Coach,

I just wanted to write to you and let you know that is has been such an honor to watch you take over this embattled football team. The past few months have been the most trying time in PSU history. You have handled yourself with class and grace and have only thought about the better of Penn State. If the rumors about the new head coach are true, I will be deeply disappointed that the search committee did not take into account what Penn State really stands for. Penn State is more than football, more than a scandal, more than what the press write about us. WE ARE family. WE ARE strong. WE ARE success with honor. WE ARE STILL PENN STATE! And that is what you stand for. If the search committee cant see that, then I feel sorry for them.

I truly hope that you will continue within the Penn State family but 100% understand if you don't. Thank you for everything you have done not only for this football team, but also for this school and this fan base.

Always rooting for the good guys.

His response...

Alexis,

You are as deserving as thanks as I am. You stood by a group of young men and a team when others spurned us - you have my sincerest appreciation for that.

My only request is that you all continue to cheer as loudly and support Penn State Football as you have in the past. It is truly a wondrous place, a place I love dearly, and it is largely that way because people like you support it.

Thank you - Tom
