Yesterday head coach Mike Riley spoke briefly after practice on the hiring of interim Athletic Director Dave Rimington and commented that he was the perfect choice to lead the athletic department in the interim.

Dave is a perfect guy that cares so much about this place,” said Riley. “Obviously he had a storied career here and has a great background in administrative duties, and I think that for this moment, it’s a very good choice.”

24 hours later, Riley had already had a chance to sit down with Rimington and was energized by the conversions the two of them had.

“Actually met with him for about an hour during the lunch period today just to kind of talk and learn more about each other,” Riley said.

“It was a great talk. I’ve met him before but this is the first time really I’ve got to spend any kind of quiet time that we can talk. It was very good, seems like a great person. It’s obviously a unique individual when you have an award named after you.  I’m very respectful of that, what he’s done.  It’s fun talking football with him.”
