Hevesy was also the OL coach for Meyer at Bowling Green, Utah and UF (through 2007).

I've got a lot more respect for his current job than the pissant Muschamp, McElwain and Mullen.

No way! I just saw the screenshot of his LinkedIn profile. He's based here in Atlanta. I swear he was the guy that helped me with my return last week. I had an extra pack of screws to return and he was working the register. Nice enough guy even though it took him 10 minutes to figure out how to do it.

F vck it, if he is/was wise with what he earned during coaching he probably just wants to keep some extra money coming in while staying busy. I can't blame him and could see myself doing the same if I ever get comfortable enough financially. When you get to a certain age you should ask yourself if you really want/need the pressure and scrutiny that comes along with a high level coaching position in CFB.

With all the changes to CFB and average mentality of spoiled 18-22 year olds these days more and more experienced guys will be doing the same.

I have nothing against anyone working anywhere, but to me this sums up about the past 15 years of UF coaching staffs, especially Cousin Eddie. Every offseason the local A$$-Lickers would wax poetic about how great it was that there was such continuity on the coaching staff which was a sign of "stability" My counter was that the coaching staff turnover was low b/c very few if any other programs had any interest poaching the coaching "talent" on the UF staff. It is one thing competing with North Vermont State Tech for coaches, but quite another having to compete with the likes of a Lowe's or Home Depot for top tier coaches.

Zook was mopping floors at a bank out of necessity - he needed the money, and janitorial work was all he could get at the time. This narrative that he was supposedly a "vice president" and not dusting the blinds and vacuuming carpets in the evenings after closing time has always been hogwash. A personal friend of his was an executive at the bank and didn't want to embarrass him, and did so by showing him on the website as some kind of higher-up. They would parade him around in front of customers during the day every now and then so he looked legit - Zook was bored and had nothing else to do. His buddy even lent him the suit he would wear, as Zook had hocked his suits (and damn near everything else) to pay his debts. They thought having a former head coach supposedly on staff would be impressive to customers, but it ended up backfiring: after seeing Zook, scores of people took their banking business elsewhere. The "executive" experiment ended quickly.

Those at the bank have always denied he was a janitor, but he was spotted at least half a dozen times in the evenings through the blinds, scrubbing away - yellow gloves on and everything. Once he was even wearing one of those red bandanas on his head like Aunt Jemima. It really is the most honest, honorable, and useful work he's ever done.

How he lost all his money isn't fully known, but drugs and/or gambling is the most likely reason. He never really earned any of his outrageous pay during his coaching days, so it's poetic justice, I suppose. He survives these days on his social security.

The "Hone Inspector" is a horrendous typo that had me wondering if he was a "Cone Inspector" for football drills being laid out properly and such. But, looking further the typo is for "Home Inspector for" Goalline...or, if you check his previous position there it is Goal-L-line, of which he was the owner...and still spelling the company incorrectly. Truly inspiring.

Thought I would pile on with this. At least he has a job, but dayum. Talk about a dose of humble pie. Let's see how many of his team members he'll call a PV$$y.

If you were close to 60 or so and were responsible with your money would anyone on this board, really be interested in dealing with a bunch of spoiled 18-22 year olds and the drama they bring with them especially with all the changes in CFB over the last 3-4 years....yeah....no....
