Akron hired Michael Dawson to be its new linebackers coach. Dawson comes from New Hampshire, where he was coordinator of Division IAA's best defense.
Last week, I reported a rumor about Mark Criner from Middle Tennessee State being named to that position. That is false.
I highly recommend reading Romeo Travis' question-and-answer session on ESPN.com from today. He is an extremely well spoken and smart guy. He gives some really interesting quotes.
At 6-foot-7, Travis may not have the height for professional basketball, but he's going to make a lot of money doing something after he graduates.
