I Extend My Best Wishes To Chuck Long In His New Job As the Head Football Coach at San Diego State. No One Represented Hayden Fry's Program Any Better
I want to wish Chuck Long the very best in his new job as the head football coach at San Diego State.
When Long [left] was the quarterback on teams coached by Hayden Fry [with Long on the right] at Iowa, he not only was an outstanding representative of the University of Iowa, he commanded the respect of columnists and sportswriters.
We all found him a pleasure to be around.
When I was researching my book, "Tales from the Iowa Sidelines," Long was one of the first former Hawkeyes I contacted.
He then was on Bob Stoops' staff at Oklahoma, and was just as resourceful as a coach as he was as a player.
Good luck, Chuck.
I hope your new team plays Iowa or Iowa State sometime down the road.
