In January, Larry Scott decided to stay at Howard University and coach his own team. The choice was undeniably difficult, even though it really shouldn’t have been.
Alabama’s Nick Saban – the best coach in college football and the sport’s ultimate kingmaker – wanted Scott.
n Jan. 20, Scott elected to remain at Howard. The 44-year-old chose the job he had targeted for two decades on the sideline. This week, he debuts as Howard faces Delaware State to start a nonconference-only spring season.
