ESPN: FAU's Heather Henderson flips roles, stereotypes

Great story about her background, her engagement and of course how she got her new job with FAU football.


//


Cheerleading coach Heather Henderson was on the phone, rattling off a list of things she had to do for her athletes at her cheerleading gym. As the owner, Henderson was in charge of day-to-day operations, planning trips, dealing with athletes and parents, and coordinating schedules all while making sure the gym ran smoothly and efficiently.

As Pelini listened, he realized he needed somebody with that exact skill set to help him with on-campus recruiting. So he turned to Henderson and asked whether she would be interested in working with the football program as the director of football operations.


Story.

GREAT COVERAGE for the offseason.


I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Huh. First time I've had a post edited by a moderator (though the edit made it better).

After having worked in a professional office setting for 30+ years, when it comes to organizing, planning, following up, schedules, details, etc. a woman is the best man for the job. Pelini probably knows he found the right person.
