I never thought about it til Penn State football beat reporter Frank brought it up, but I’ve covered three different head coaches in as many years as I’ve been with The York Daily Record (about three and a half years).
My first season photographing Penn State football turned out to be Joe Paterno’s last (2011).
Bill O’Brien took the helm for the next two seasons, but signed on with the Houston Texans basically as soon as he possibly could (2012-2013).
And now, we have James Franklin (2014).
I photographed the Blue-White Game in April, which was technically Franklin’s first game in Beaver Stadium. Tomorrow, editor Eileen and I go to cover the game against Akron, which will be his first regular-season game in State College.
Another season, another coach. This’ll be fun.
