    What a shocker. Was there really a point for the interview process or was this determined when the AD was hired? Good luck La Salle. Why don’t they just change the name of the school to Campbell Hall. The Volleyball coach and now the Football coach. The other coaches at La Salle better behave.

  • I’ve known Antoine Peterson since our days of playing popwarner football at Victory Park many a moons ago. I’ve also had a chance to cover several of his games – his victory over Mary Star, in particular. His record is not at all indicative of his commitment and dedication to La Salle or its players.

    Thanks for the effort “A” and good luck on your future endeavors.

  • YouDidWhat?

    Boy did anyone at La Salle ask around about Gordon before they pulled the trigger. That guy is a joke and his staff of clowns are not suited for a school like La Salle. I mean…aren’t they allegedly trying to raise their profile. This hire sets them back. La Salle really could of done better.

  • Keep Telling you ’bout Kryptonite

    I’ve repeatedly come on here about the A.D. being Football Kryptonite. Everything football at La Salle will eventually lose its strength. La Salle could really compete if it weren’t for kryptonite A.D. At least the new Campbell Hall coach won’t have holdovers sabatoging him.

  • No Holdovers

    Gordon will do enough damage himself. Maybe he will do you all a favor and get himself and your AD fired.
