Hiring a buddy

Once again Mike Riley stays consistent with his hiring of a buddy instead of doing what is best for the team, the university, and the fans.  This hire is another mistake in Riley's tenure at OSU.  

Why hire a 58 year old coach that hasn't been a part of the college game for 20+years?
Why not hire a younger coach with recruiting experience and an understanding of today's athlete?
Why hire a 58 year old coach with no recent recruiting experience?
Two year commitment at $200k, really?

I do not see the upside in the hire.  Riley has now increased his staff by one more coach that is out of touch with today's athlete.  

Happy Valentine's Day fans, Mike Riley has just given us whip cream on top of a pile of crap.
