That was a long interview. Great to hear!
Retarded artistically. Idiotic in other respects.

Whipple featured in Sunday NY Times article about NFL coaches going back to coach in college.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/04/sport ... .html?_r=0
Both Chow and Mark Whipple, the head coach at Massachusetts, said they held meetings on Thursdays to work on players’ academics.

“You’re not doing that in the N.F.L. on Thursdays,” said Whipple, who has been a quarterbacks coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Browns.

Of the differences between coaching at the college and professional levels, Whipple added: “You might have to have a little more patience in college, just because you’re dealing with younger kids, not as mature. The N.F.L. players — they want to get better. They know if they can get a couple years more on their contract, there’s nowhere else they can make that kind of a living.”

Whip has hired a new special teams coordinator and outside linebackers coach. He was here in 1998 when we won the 1-AA Championship. Welcome aboard, Coach Michaels!

Good news. Maybe he can help lock up Caggiano, who is visiting this weekend.

Life long Jet fan until they took Michael Vick. I sat last season out as I abhorred the move. (My voice mails and emails to management were politely acknowledged. Hah.) Once they dump Vick Ill come back as a fan. Great move for Marcel. I figure Whip encouraged him wholeheartedly. I'm sure the dollars didn't hurt either. As long as he didn't' jump to another college team even better.

The players seem shocked and bummed. They liked Marcel.

I'm bummed to see him go too, but happy for him to get this shot.

Athlon ranked all the FBS head coaches for 2017. Whip comes in at 114.

From the handful I read, it seems less like a ranking of coaches and more like a ranking of teams.
