His value system and ethics would jive at Lehigh.

    It sounds like Cignetti is going try and retain his staff. Signing day is Wednesday. Need to get something in place imo. Hopefully Sterrett is closing in..
    Maybe he got a nice buyout from Miami? Would certainly be a drastic chance of scenery and culture. We can always dream.

    Re: Thoughts on Potential Lehigh HC?

    On another thread, a Pard mentioned that Bob Heffner, current OL coach at Northwestern might have an opportunity to move up to possible OC due to a vacancy. Makes one wonder if he doesn't get a promo that he'd be interested in Lehigh. Seemed like a very solid coach with the 'pards several years ago and certainly familiar with PL, plus having to recruit with academic demands. Just another random thought.

    I highly doubt Bob will leave Northwestern. He makes really good money, and coach Fitz loves him. However, Iím sure he would listen if someone is offering a head job, but I think that ship has sailed for him. Bob is 63ish and is probably thinking more about retirement than getting a head job.

    I was that poster and think Bob would be a great PL HC. Was campaigning for him two years ago to take Lafayette slot. He's a recruiting beast too! UGH would hate to see him take Lehigh post. Recall it was Bob in that epic The Hurt game in 2005 that during a TO convinced Tavani to go for the end zone rather than attempt a 50+ FG...Great call!

    I remember all too well, and one of the reasons I had a lot of respect for him in getting the Frankasaurus to change his mind. Lembo's bon voyage.

    I don’t miss Lembo at all. Someone said earlier the next hire will really show where LU is at as to seriousness of FB. Boy, I hope they are. I believe a solid LU program is good for the PL. But, they too need to get their collective heads out of their asses and get on board with a few things. You can stick to your values and still compete. A lot of us here do it every day!

    Pretty much agree. You must know that most of the serious restrictions on LU football are the PL rules. Sterrett will always support our program. He will hire the best HC available to us.

    Check Trisciani off the list.

    Folmar should still be in play because he's not headed to JMU nor is he likely to remain at Elon imo...

    Re: Thoughts on Potential Lehigh HC?

    Any timeline for this? Lafayette, knowing it was Tavani's final year, announced John Garrett on Dec. 20, 2016. Is there a benefit to announcing before Xmas as players, families get caught up in whirlwind of holidays and sometimes travel over the Xmas holiday.
