Army Football Notebook

It seems Division I-AA Portland State found a pretty good coach to fill the vacancy left by Tim Walsh when he accepted Army's offensive coordinator job earlier this month. Former NFL coach Jerry Glanville has accepted the Portland State job. He has been defensive coordinator at Hawaii the last two years.

Glanville, 65, was head coach of the Houston Oilers from 1986-89 and the Atlanta Falcons from 1990-93.

Walsh went 90-68 at Portland State, including 7-4 last season. He led the Vikings to three straight playoff appearances at the Division II level before they moved up to Division I-AA and the Big Sky Conference in 1996.

Stan Brock fired Kevin Ross last month, but not before he offered him a job on Army's staff. The rumor making the rounds at West Point is that Brock relieved Ross of his duties as offensive coordinator. However, Brock offered Ross the running backs coach job.

Apparently, Ross turned it down, and was out at West Point, following his dad, Bobby, out the door. Kevin Ross has yet to find a new job. Brock hired Tucker Waugh as running backs coach earlier this month.

Waugh previously served as wide receivers coach at Army from 2000-04.

"One of the first things Stan did (as head coach) was fire me," Kevin Ross told armysports.com in January.

Armysports.com will release more details about the situation as they become available.

Former Army linebackers coach Bruce Hardin has been named the first head coach at Marvin Ridge High School in Charlotte. Hardin will begin his teaching and coaching responsibilities in August Hardin previously coached on the high school level at Providence High School in Charlotte.

Robinson (Va.) running back Mike Meier, 5-foot-10, 205 pounds, has committed to West Point.
