You can wish him a happy birthday but he remains on my Quitter Shit List with Ron Meyer, Carolyn Peck and Lee Rose.

He did not quit coaching Purdue football to go somewhere else. There were family issues and he had to step down from coaching. He remained at Purdue in the athletic department. It was only later that he could return to coaching, Purdue wasn't looking for a new football coach at that time, so he went to Army.

If he would have stayed we would have been Purdue's all time winningest coach.
