Pelini sold himself to FAU

New FAU coach, Carl Pelini, did some research before accepting his first college head coaching position on Monday.

Pelini said that he started to do research about FAU about a month ago, and prepared an 18 page booklet which he shared with athletic director Craig Angelos during his interview. Pelini said that he saw a great deal of potential in the program and referred to the Owls as a "sleeping giant ready to take off". Pretty solid compliment for a program that's only had football for 11 years.

The Owls are getting a proven assistant coach, and two time Broyles award nominee in Pelini, and someone that has already hit the ground running.
