Posted on April 17, 2009 by kjpilcherSanderson, who was hand-picked to lead the Cyclones, decided to leave Iowa State and accepted an offer to become the head wrestling coach at Penn State University. He replaces Troy Sunderland, who resigned April 4 after coaching the Nittany Lions for 11 seasons.
Sanderson was contacted by Penn State officials last week, which led to two interviews this week including one Thursday which led to reports of Sanderson being on the State College, Pa., campus.
He consulted people he trusted at the start of the process, taking some advice from his dad and high school coach, Steve.
?He said why not listen,? Sanderson said. ?They flew in and I met with them. It became more intriguing.?
How dare you question Kr when he has said something and not not backed it up! It doesnt matter that you have an article written by a highly respected journalist to back up your point. Kr has a blog man! You need to accept what he says as fact no matter what. I'm sure Kr has regular meetings with Cael to talk about the finer details of his departure from ISU. While we here in Iowa have no clue as to what happened.
Sheesh. Half the Penn St fans didn't even know wrestling existed at Penn St until two years ago. Bunch of Johnny come lately bandwagoners.
