Things change, but for now, Troy Calhoun - at least in his eyes - is not a candidate to be the next Head Coach of the Denver Broncos:
"The Air Force Academy has tremendous General officers and staff members who are remarkably dedicated to the development of our cadets, it's inspiring that an 18-year-old kid makes a commitment to embed the necessary character traits to grow into a fine young man or woman who honorably serves for at least five years. Our coaching staff and our families are proud to be a part of the daily lives of our nation's future officers. We certainly look forward to seeing our seniors graduate in May along with coaching the Falcons in 2011 and beyond."
Later, in a text message to the Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette, Calhoun clarified his position:
"It’s a commitment," Calhoun said. "If a 19-year-old can do it, then a 40-year-old coach definitely can."
Surely things change, and the AFA has a bowl game coming up. Still, Calhoun has been pretty consistent with his message and appears more and more like a lifer, like his former HC Fisher DeBerry.
