Cleveland Browns Head Coach Mike Pettine

Wow! 3 posts in 2 days. In the off-season yet. But this news is too good to miss. As ABC news points out in Browns Hire Mike Pettine as Coach, "Football has formed Pettine's life. His father, Mike Pettine Sr., won four state championships at Central Bucks High School West in Doylestown, Pa., and retired in 1999 as the winningest coach in state history." There are a lot of tweets about Pettine. My favorites are from Kyle Berger: "I really learned a lot from Pettine. We did a weekly Coaches' Show on my high school's TV station together. Great of luck." and "The last time Mike Pettine was a HC, he had a full head of hair and I weighed 185. Man, those were the days. #NorthPennPride" For nostalgia's sake, I have to link to the North Penn Reporter story Browns hire former North Penn coach Mike Pettine as coach. I would have expected more of a local angle than an old picture from "The Swamp," Crawford Stadium, but the story is the same as the ABC News story.

For more pictures of the 2001 Season, check out the North Penn football site. Mike Pettine's career prior to the NFL has had a surprising amount of attention. The 1999 North Penn-CB West game was featured in The Last Game. I have to wrap up this post, but I hope to be back with more from youtube.
