February 5, 2009 – 12:10 am by Michael Bean

Wednesday was National Signing Day in College Football. You have to love a country where there are swarms of cameras capturing the moment when kids indicate in dramatic fashion which college campus they’re heading to, sometimes even by bring a number of different hats then selecting which they’ve chosen as reporters look on eagerly.

SRI has a couple of interviews from former NFL head coaches now in the college ranks. First up, Mike Riley, the former San Diego Chargers coach now in Corvallis leading the Oregon State Beavers. Then it’s Mike Sherman’s turn, who headed south from Green Bay to take on the challenge of restoring Texas A&M to national prominence.
