Prior to Saban and Miles, did LSU ever have a yankee coach?
Don't know if I would consider Michigan "yankee territory"....
But to answer your question, I don't think so.
Sorry for using the "Y" word. I meant to say "northern coaches." :yelwink2:
yeah....I shudder when I hear the "Y" word....
Paul Dietzel graduated from Miami of Ohio, don't know where he was from originally. Bo Rein's alma mater was Ohio State. A number of the very early coaches were from northern universities as well.
dinardeaux was originally from new jersey (?) prior to attending notre dame.
Wasn't Arnsparger a Miami Ohiohoho guy as well ?
OK, I get the point. Is it safe to assume that Curley was not from New Jersey?
Yes, Yankee is more New England/New York than Midwest.
Michigan is about as north as you can get in my book.
