Perfect replacement for Penn State AD?

I know who can restore sense, order and decency to Penn State. I know the perfect candidate to rebuild the athletic department, the next AD. He'll never take it but if he did, Penn State would rebound quickly. No one would be a better hire.

His name is Ernie Accorsi. For those of you who don't know Accorsi, he took over the helm of the New York Giants from the late George Young and made the Giants champions again. Significant portions of the Giants team that derailed the perfect season of the New England Patriots were put together by Accorsi.

Accorsi has a long history of rebuilding going back to when he was the general manager of the Cleveland Browns. He was born in Pennsylvania (Hersey) and in the 1960s worked in the Penn State athletic department. He still has strong ties to the school.

Most of all, Accorsi is highly respected, comfortable with the media, smart, energetic and would be a good transition from this crisis to a more permanent figure. Again, he likely would never take the job, but it he could be convinced, Accorsi could be the perfect compass.

Currently Accorsi is a special advisor to the NFL.

Worked for PSU in the 60s? Just what they need, another 70-80 yr old man running in the athletic department...
