It's nice that Stanford does this to honor former players and, yes, you're probably going to be talking about the Christian McCaffrey Running Backs Coach this time next year. Sure, it's a little strange that a third party is paying to put someone else's name on a coaching job. But you get what they're going for.

That said, this is college football. Nice and kind isn't the order of the day. If you're going to throw your money at an endowment, why not twist the knife while you're at it? Let's see the Angry Iowa Fans Senior Professor of Music Theory, or the Pete Carroll Director of Interuniversity Dealings. This doesn't just have to be a Stanford thing, either. With the right amount of money, we could see:
