THE LIONS DEN! A PSU BLOG What a crazy summer its been in State College PA. With all the turmoil surrounding former coaching Legend Joe Paterno and his staff people have not been focused on the Nittany Lion Football team and the upcoming season. While some have been clamoring for the death penalty and the resignation of the Board of Trustees, Coaching Staff, and the Athletics Director the school has been going about things "business as usual". This off season the school put together a council to go out and find a new head coach. No one wanted to be the guy who follows "THE GUY". They knocked on doors, left voice mails, searched social media, called in favors hell the head of the search committee personally flew to Arkansas to talk to Bobby Petrino (after the accident) to talk him into the job. To no avail no on wanted the position. "I think it was a thursday in late July when my phone rang. On the other end was this cocky brash young man by the name of Matt York. He said he was from Louisville KY and he had extensive knowledge about the game from playing video games and that he was perfect for the job. I of course laughed told him "thanks but no thanks" hung up and ordered lunch. Thank God I have caller ID because little did I know after all the searching and talking to former head coaches, current head coaches and the like that nobody wanted the job. I was stuck hiring this virtual unknown to run one of the most storied universities in all of college athletics." said Matt Millen head of the search committee. So now it is Matt Yorks team he has big shoes to fill a community to lift up and a team that has some glaring holes in its roster thanks to the former regime. This is a PSU Blog we will bring you all of the info you need to keep yourself up to date on the goings on in Happy Valley. Welcome to The Lions Dens Lets GO PENN STATE!!
