Good one! NFL Hall of Fame member and native West Virginian Sam Huff is 86 years old.



A friend of mine was on the selection committee for the new coach after the crash. Let me put it this way, he was not impressed with Sam Huff as a prospective coach. He was an excellent football player, but he apparently according to my friend had a real ego problem. In fact, though they interviewed Sam Huff, he was not invited to be interviewed. He just flew into Tri-State Airport on his private jet, drove to campus, and presented himself as the prospective new coach and the savior of Marshall athletics. The committee was hastily convened to interview him. My friend said it was quite a circus.

Note: My avatar is the national colors of the 78th Ohio Veteran Volunteer Infantry, which are now preserved in a climate controlled vault at the Ohio History Connection. Learn more about the old 78th at: http://www.78ohio.org

What I recall about him was he was one player (and there weren't many) who seemed to have a reasonable amount of success against Jim Brown.

Charles Huff from Sabans staff is the new coach. He was making $550,000 at Alabama, the second lowest there. Been a coach at a lot of places(8 colleges and 1 year in the NFL), 37 years old.
