In a famous NFL Films clip, then-Houston Oilers coach Jerry Glanville rails about how he hates “college guys,” and tells an official that “NFL” stands for “Not For Long.”
Glanville apparently got over his hatred of college guys, because he’s now the head coach at Portland State.
But not for long.
Portland State University will announce today that Glanville will no longer be the school’s coach, KPTV is reporting.
Glanville met with the school’s athletic director on Monday, and the writing has been on the wall for some time: Glanville’s record at Portland State is 9-24, and the program is in the midst of its worst season in 27 years.
Glanville, who coached the Oilers from 1986 to 1989 and the Atlanta Falcons from 1990 to 1993, is a showman who brought a lot of attention to Portland State. He just wasn’t able to bring many wins. It’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever see Glanville on an NFL sideline again, but don’t be surprised if we see him on TV. If there’s one thing Glanville can do, it’s talk.
