Great ESPN Post

Just read this from Bennett over on ESPN:

http://myespn.go.com/blogs/bigeast/0-2-272/Passionate-Marrone-hopes-to-make-Syracuse-a-winner-again.html

Green said Marrone ticked off names of high school coaches in the area he would contact, gave names of his ideal candidates for assistants and even talked about how he would attack specific Big East defensive schemes, including which cornerbacks he would go after in the passing game.

"He knew Art Monk's favorite pass pattern and said he would put that in (the playbook) and call it the Art Monk play," Green said.

One word for that: Badass.

Oh, it goes on:

The Bronx, N.Y., native talked about how his father grew up idolizing Jim Brown and Floyd Little and how Syracuse holds a special place in his heart. Marrone said he always envisioned himself coaching the Orange.

"The minute I made the decision to start coaching, all I thought about was that I hope one day I get to stand in front of my school and my friends and be the head football coach at Syracuse University," he said.

And this goes back to everyone's point on someone that WANTED this job.

Bennett sums it all up thusly:

Syracuse hopes it hasn't made a mistake in bringing its former player home. At least as far as first impressions go, Marrone is off to a good start.

In other news, Bennett looks like a nerd.  But a nice nerd at least.
