Letter to the Editor | The other empty position

January 17, 2014 

I am pleased to see James Franklin hired as the new football coach at Penn State. But isn’t there another position open at the university? Oh, yes — president of Penn State.

Perhaps we should pay more attention to hiring someone who will impact thousands of students every day and less to someone who will impact one or two hundred every year.

I hope the powers that be put as much work and due diligence into hiring our next president as they did for the new football coach.

And I particularly look forward to everyone turning out and getting as excited about the arrival of that new president as we did for Franklin.
