"Because I felt like I played the game for such a long time. And I was so totally committed. And I just poured everything into my career, that I didn't have anything left. Because, as a coach, you really don't have a life. I mean, coaching. It is hard, man, it takes up the majority of your time. But yeah, it takes a total commitment. And you got to be all in. So, it started to cross my mind just a little bit, now," stated Rice.

He could do wonders for valley as AD instead of coach. Surround him with competent staffing and they can see a lot of gains.

:nod:…….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.    :nod:

Jerry Rice as an athletic administrator seems much more realistic of a sell to me.

Strike...IF Jerry ends up at MVSU, I hope the admins and alums influence him to leave the whiteboy Trump supporter behind wherever he is.  Ain't nobody got time for that.  :blush:

I think him coaching at MSVSU would have a bigger impact on the national level. People don't care who the AD is. All they see is the players and coaches on the sidelines. He would bring in the some of the best talent in the country, and in tern, will expose the program on a serious level.

I hope it happens.  :nod:
