    The Daily Item article is below.

    The longest tenured coaches in the PL are now Rob Sgarlata and Dan Hunt, at five seasons each.

    I feel like this was forced. He had a couple of good years but overall his time in Lewisburg was pretty ugly. With that said, I'm not sure if anyone can win at Bucknell unless the school itself changes how they view football.

    I wonder if the PL is actually waking up from the nightmare of the last 5+ years. Would be a nice, if unexpected, developement. A real rehab or just a new paint job?

    Time will tell!

    If there was ever a program in the PL that needs to hire a young, energetic coach it's Bucknell. That program desperately needs a coach to come in with ambition and passion in order to stir the masses.

    Or go the Bryant route and hire Jim Roth. Maybe he could coach both Southern Columbia and Bucknell and just create an 8 year program? Stone Hollenbach (QB headed to 'Bama) and Julian Fleming (5 star WR) would be one helluva duo in the PL....

    The last three hires (Conlin, Garrett, Gilmore) are not changing the PL's continuing trajectory. Hard to see why Bucknell would be different.

    P.S. Can someone in these athletic departments stop using the phrase "a national search"? When was the last PL coach hired outside the Northeast corridor? Does anyone seriously think that Bucknell is getting the OC from New Mexico State or the head coach at UC Davis to Lewisburg?

    Garrett was a bit of an outside of the box hire. He went to Princeton but his coaching experience was mostly NFL and with some college stops sprinkled in. Chesney wasn't your typical PL hire either. He was local but his background certainly didn't scream PL.

    Gilmore was about as parochial as it gets....

    Re: Bucknell HC Joe Susan steps down

    Seems like a force retirement to me. I he was thinking that route, he would have announce leading up to or after last game. Mid-January is a bit late. Middle of recruiting, now have to restaff. Tough. Lewisburg a tough place to turn around. Not the location or the school, but the culture. Does not seem to be any interest. Every time I've gone to Christy Mathewson we outnumbered the home team.
