Gold and Black Illustrated The Purdue University Boilermakers made a drastic midseason coaching change, as they brought in Coach Stewart to take over as head coach. Coach Stewart previously has coaching experience at Florida International, where he lead the Golden Panthers to their first winning season in school history. Additionally, Coach Stewart served as a student graduate assistant at Purdue from 2000 through 2005. Here's an a clip from the press conference. "I can't tell you how excited I am to be here today, I wish it was under different circumstances, but hey I'm not going to lie, this is my dream job, and I've always wanted to make it back to West Lafayette, and give back to the University in any way that I can. I look forward to leading these young men to great things, and hopefully bringing us back to the Rose Bowl".
