He could do wonders for valley as AD instead of coach. Surround him with competent staffing and they can see a lot of gains.
…….yeah, I think you may have a point here. Jerry may be MORE effective as an athletic director, where he would be in a position to exploit his NFL connections to draw dollars for Valley.
I’ve stated on this board more than once before, but it bears repeating. Jerry Rice was the greatest college football player I’ve ever seen live. Valley played Tenn State in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, sometime around ‘83 or ‘84, forgotten the exact year. Willie Totten was his QB, and Archie “Gunslinget” Cooley was Valley’s head coach.
Valley went up on State something like 30+ to zero n the first quarter ALONE. Forgotten Jerry’s total receiving yards that game, but it had to be north of 200. Dude put on one hell of a show.
