In advance of Montana's new head football coach meeting the media for the first time on Friday Griz Biz thought they'd take the opportunity to examine of the new head man's coaching background.
Much has already been made about the offensive prowess that Bob Stitt bring to the Grizzly program after 15 years at the helm of the Colorado School of Mines.
He has been described in some corners as the best offensive mind and head coach that no one has ever heard of, but in the coaching ranks Stitt is far from being an unknown.
Many will draw similarities to the hiring of Joe Glenn who made his name winning a pair of Division-II National Championships at Northern Colorado before taking the helm at Montana.
But Glenn's influences may run even deeper than just the Cinderella story of a lower division coach excelling at the D-1 level.
Stitt also graduated from Doane College, Glenn's Alma mater, where Joe became the youngest head coach in the country when he was hired at the Nebraska school in 1976.
Stitt was a three-sport star there at running back and return specialist on the gridiron where he was the All-State College Offensive Player of the Year, played left field on the baseball team and still found time to run the 4x100 meter relay.
And after following Glenn to UNC for a year in 1989 while he earned his master's degree - his son is named after Joe which should surprise no one - he returned to Doane for four years serving as the offensive line coach and offensive coordinator.
After a stint at Austin College (Texas), Stitt assumed the offensive coordinator position at Harvard where his 1989 team led the Ivy League in rushing and set school marks for total offense in a game (640 yards), single-game passing yards (405), and points (63).
So just where was the School of Mines at before he arrived you might ask.
Well suffice it to say when the Orediggers finished 7-4 in Stitt's second season in 2000 it was their first winning season since 1991 and most wins since 1958.
And when they finished 7-4 the nest season in 2002, it was the school's first back-to-back winning season since 1974-75.
And it got better from there.
I couldn't be more excited.
