A good start for Grambling

While hiring a head football coach two weeks before signing day is normally not a good thing, you've got to give credit to the Grambling administration for making the wait worthwhile.

I can't tell you how Rod Broadway will do as the Tigers' head coach. But his resume is impressive. The people who called on his behalf (Steve Spurrier and Bob Stoops) are impressive. And he seems to have handled himself in a humble manner at the news conference on Tuesday in Grambling.

More than anything, Broadway represents a breath of fresh air for Grambling. Whether self-inflicted or dinged by outsiders, Melvin Spears had more than his share of controversy at Grambling.

Hopefully for the sake of Grambling's program, it will all be about football with Broadway at the helm.
