Gesser Will Coach By Committee

Mid-afternoon on Monday, the sign outside the most prominent coach’s office in the Kibbie Dome still read: “Robb Akey, Head Football Coach.” A few hours earlier, Jason Gesser had met with the media for the first time as Idaho’s interim coach. And 18 hours before his introductory news conference, he first heard that Akey – his former boss and coach at Washington State – had been fired. “It’s been a whirlwind,” Gesser said. Gesser had yet to process all that had unfolded, and he was at a loss to explain how he found himself – at the age of 33 and in his second year as a collegiate coach – running an FBS program. But he had plenty to say about his vision for the Vandals football program/Josh Wright, SR. More here.

Question: Isn't 33 way too young to be head coach of a top division college football team?
