Blogger “New York” commented in a post last week that San Marino should fly to Texas and offer its open varsity head coach job to former Titans standout quarterback Dan Loyd.
Well, according to a source, Loyd is interested in the job. Whether he has applied, I don’t know yet. Loyd was a star quarterback in the mid-1990s and even got a ride to Arizona. After that … I’m not sure what happened to his career (somebody fill me in).
Personally, I just remember Loyd as the kid I always saw riding his bike up and down Huntington Drive on his to play one sport or another.
San Marino is currently looking to fill the position vacated by Mike Mooney, who resigned late in the first semester after being put on administrative leave during the season for reasons the school would not comment about.
Aram’s take: Loyd would certainly be a interesting hire. But if he’s been in Texas for long, he probably doesn’t know just how much his hometown has changed. I need not say more. Also, I get the feeling that the San Marino job is going to carry a stigma for would-be interested coaches because of having to deal with a certain breed of parent, who to this day get everything they put on their Christmas list. Get it? Good.
