Doing a little research on college football this morning while some video was loading up here at the site and found out that Liberty University, up in Lynchburg, Virginia, has a new coach this season in Turner Gill….Liberty also has Carl Torbush and Mike Minter on board as assistant coaches….

Former Liberty coach Danny Rocco is now the head coach at Richmond University…

Turner Gill used to be the QB at Nebraska…He was also the head coach at Buffalo and at Kansas before he landed at Liberty….Gill coached former Grimsley QB Zach Maynard, while Gill and Maynard were at Buffalo….

Torbush used to be the head coach at North Carolina and he was an assistant coach at Carson-Newman and former Page LB Stephen Via played for him, while they were in Tennessee…Torbush is now the LB coach at Liberty….

Mike Minter is also from Nebraska and he was big name on defense as a DB for the Carolina Panthers…Minter was an assistant coach at Johnson C. Smith before heading to Liberty….

Danny Rocco, now at Richmond, has a nephew who is the starting QB at Virginia and the Spiders will open up the season, versus UVA, in Charlottesville….Former Ragsdale LB and long-snapper Walt Sparks is still up at Richmond and stills wears the #42 and Walt will be a junior at Richmond this season….Richmond started out last season at (3-0) before finishing at (3-8) under an interim head coach…..Richmond now ready to Rocco and Roll….

And that is where a little research will get you…..

    Anthony Saunders played for Carl Torbush at UNC after he went to Western Guilford. Andy Durham also went to Western Guilford and played at Liberty where Torbush is now.
