Coaching controversy in Morgantown?

Seems a 12 year old boy, Joshua Irizarry, from Connecticut wants to coach football pretty bad. If you haven't seen this video you need to.

Here is a link to the story.

The best part of the interview is when the kid tells the reporter that in the rejection letter he received from the president of WVU, Michael Garrison (Mr. Heat Miser in living form), it stated that "the position has been taken by an equally qualified candidate." I know that WVU coach Bill Stewart acts like a 12 year old sometimes, but is this validation from the boss?

The cover letter the boy sent in with his application also recognizes that a stunt like this might be better served for a school like Temple that could use the publicity. Is this kid gunning for Owls coach Al Golden's position next? Poor, poor Temple. They have fallen a long ways since Heathcliff Huxtable's playing days.
