Another new day for Army Football - After 3 years and a 9-25 record Bobby Ross resigned and Stan Brock was hired as his replacement.

Go Army!

Where?

Now there is a name to pull the Army football program out of the doldrums. They must have been in a financial bind after paying Ross all those millions.

Googled Stan Brock and found out that he was the co-founder of Wild Kingdom. Certainly hope there are two of him. However, if there were, I am sure I would have heard of at least one of them.

Same one. And he was a goat-tamer prior to WK initiative. :eek: Thus his qualifications ... :cool:

And I think he was NCAA backgammon champ as a collegian. :confused:

I know you both think you are funny - but stick to your day job.
Wrong Stan Brock.

Per Wikepedia:

"Stanley James Brock (born June 8, 1958 in Portland, Oregon) was a tackle in the National Football League for the New Orleans Saints and the San Diego Chargers. Brock attended the University of Colorado at Boulder.
After his NFL career, he was a coach in the Arena Football League, where he served as the head coach of the Portland Forest Dragons (1997-1999) and the Los Angeles Avengers (2000-2001).
On January 29, 2007, he was named the head coach at Army after the resignation of Bobby Ross."

Nothing here about NCAA backgammon - but if he was the champ -Army stands a shot against Navy. He will bring strategy and luck to the team. :thumb: :biggrin:

They will need the luck. Wikepedia describes the Portland team under his tenure as hapless. Actually they folded after his last year there. His combined won/loss record for his five years in Arena football is 21 wins and 49 losses. A veritable coaching icon.

Attention!!!Attention!!!! Very low blow to follow:
Think he will try the University of Colorado's recruiting gambits which culmunated a few years ago to try to get players to Army?

C'mon now we all know Navy's reign of terror is over.

PS: I think gold cadets would be a better nickname than black knights
