    Coach Klausing was funny and had some funny sayings like “You have to look like a football”. One of his greatest moves at WVU was to unknowingly use a bartender who was not a student to kick off in a game.Hilarious

    That’s a great story. Do you know any more about it?

    With those coaching records in his background, I wonder why he didn’t get the head job when Bowden left? Anyone know if he was seriously in consideration for it, or if he even interviewed?

    Bowden was pushed out quite a bit by the fan base. Staff likely felt unwelcome.

    Chuck had already committed to leave despite Coach Bowden telling him not to jump. Chuck committed to leave after Pitt game. Coach Bowden left after Peach Bowl.

    Kevin. Check his book he may discuss it there. We had injuries and they had try outs. They selected two guys, one to kick off and one to kick extra points and field goals.  I think he may have later learned that they were not students from his daughter who was a student. That is my recollection .
