Weekdays 3PM - 6PM

Sports director at WFMJ-TV in Youngstown, OH, Dana Balash joins Matt to talk about Bo Pelini leaving his head coaching job at Youngstown State for a return to LSU as the defensive coordinator. Balash talks how the decision is being handled in and around the Youngstown State program.

Was it known if Bo was seeking a return to power five college football?

“Well I think he missed it. I think the attitude around here was that Bo was going to put this program back on the map,” Balash said. “LSU wanted Bo. He told me he turned it down three times before he got this final offer and had to take a look at it.”

How was Bo’s relationship with the people at Youngstown State?

“Bo grew up here. People knew Bo and welcomed Bo back here,” Balash said.
