Rumored Changes Confirmed

In the notes at the end of Sunday's Valley News story about the Dartmouth men's basketball team losing to Marist was confirmation about a rumored coaching change for the Big Green football program.

Here's the text from the screen shot above (highlighting added):
The Dartmouth football coaching staff experienced upheaval this week. Keith Clark, formerly the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, will now focus on the latter job only. Quarterback coach and passing game coordinator Chris Rorke, running backs coach Chad Nice and tight ends coach Kyle Metzler were fired a year after the Big Green shared the Ivy League title. The team was 4-6 overall and 1-6 in league play this season.
It seemed like quite a coup when defensive lineman Jerry Tillery took a recruiting visit to Dartmouth after committing to Notre Dame a couple of years ago. When he not only saw action but started three games as a true freshman there might have been a "What if" feeling around the Dartmouth football offices.

After what happened Saturday you can bet the feeling has changed. Tillery made headlines all over the place including this one on the Fox Sports College Football page:
Notre Dame lineman put two despicable cheap shots on USC in blowout loss 
Notre Dame's Jerry Tillery Kicks Head Of Player Who Just Suffered Brain Injury
The Washington Post story and videos can be found HERE.
Should have posted a link Sunday to New Hampshire's 64-21 win over Lehigh in the FCS playoffs. Kind of makes the Dartmouth win over the Wildcats even more impressive.
