Howard on Nord's Departure: "He will be missed."

And the system will stay in place:

Statement from Coach Howard Schnellenberger on Gary Nord

"It is with mixed emotion that we send Coach Nord off to his new assignment with the Purdue Boilermakers. Gary has been with me since 1994 when we first began at Louisville. It was great to have him here with me since 2003. He has made a great impression on our football team and has helped up bring this football program from Division I-AA to a strong Division I-A team. He will be missed.

We are looking now for a coordinator from the staff as well as from the many young men who have been in and around our program and who are working at different places. The offense will remain the same as it has been over the years of me being a head coach. We have recruited the quarterbacks to fit this system and the system will stay the same.

We wish Gary good luck and much success and we look forward to playing him in a bowl one year.

For those that were worried that he was being groomed as the next head coach….who says he still isn't on that future list of candidates? His experience at Purdue will make him an even better candidate if the time ever comes that we are looking for a new head coach.

Thank you Coach Nord, and Godspeed!
