|Joe Moglia's Dartmouth bio from the '83 press guide. (Click to enlarge.)|
Asked about leaving football, Moglia's answer begins this way:
It was my first year as the defensive coordinator at Dartmouth. We had four kids. We were going through a divorce. I couldn't afford to live independently and support my wife and four children. So, I moved into a storage loft above the football office at Dartmouth. I didn't mind that so much, but it had no heat, and I could see my breath in the wintertime. Dartmouth is in New Hampshire. It gets cold there, and I lived there for two years. In January of 1984, Miami had upset Nebraska for the national championship. They had offered me a job. For me to go as the defensive coordinator at Dartmouth to a national championship team is an incredible next step in terms of my career! But the reality was that my kids were going to live in New Hampshire. I was going to live in Coral Gables.
•Some good news from the diamond yesterday as a couple of Dartmouth teams picked up nice wins.
The baseball team received a terrific start from sophomore Beau Sulser and handed No. 30 Florida International its first loss, 3-0. The Big Green evened its record at 1-1 while FIU fell to 10-1.
The Dartmouth softball team opened play in the James Madison Tournament with a 6-3 victory over Penn State. With 66 losses over the past two years, Penn State isn't a powerhouse, but any time you beat the Nittany Lions (5-11) you should feel good about yourself.
