THE PELINI BROTHERS MIGHT GET THIS BAND BACK TOGETHER

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Being a head coach just wasn't for Carl Pelini. Head coaches have to know not to spike the ball on fourth down, for one thing. There's no shame in this; some people are better equipped to be the guy in charge, and some fit more naturally in an assistant role. And while his career at FAU concluded due to unusual circumstances, a 5-15 record probably said as much about Carl's ability to be a head coach as any salacious rumors did.

It's been quiet for Carl Pelini since then. He's been job hunting, though he says he's mostly looking at non-coaching positions. And he may well choose to stay out of the spotlight - he's got a Master's in Journalism and one in Education, so perhaps he's done with the ceaseless grind of college football. If that's his choice, good for him.

But if he chooses to follow his brother to Youngstown State and become the defensive line coach? We feel it's in his best interest to know what the Ohio Substance Abuse Monitoring Network has to say about the area.

The field's only 160 feet wide, Carl. Just saying, bring a shovel.
