    Indeed. Only chatted with him a few times... usually at boys state hoops in Peoria. Always was a nice guy... glad to hear he landed on his feet.

    This sounds like a nice gig. I don't know Bob personally, but know of him. This is a nice landing spot for him

    Anybody have a list of how many colleges have now hired "staff writer" type positions? I think Cincinnati has one, and I recall someone mentioning TCU?

    Our dying industry is becoming a boon for sports information departments.

    Add North Carolina to the list, hiring away a local Tar Heels beat writer.
