Jeff Monken likes where he is

In light of a couple of articles coming out already predicting a possible move to a Power 5 school in 2020 for Jeff Monken, I asked the Army head coach about how happy he was at West Point. My tweet on part of his response was well received. Below is his full quote:

“I love this place. There can’t be a better place to lead and inspire young people to do great things. They are so motivated. Our faculty, our staff, our students, they’re here for a purpose and they know exactly where they’re going when they graduate. There’s no wishy-washy, I’m not sure. They know exactly what they’re doing and I like people that have direction and a purpose. That’s why I love this place. It’s my opportunity to serve. I never served in the military and it might be one of the great regrets I have in my life. But in some way this is my opportunity to serve, and I love being the coach here.”

For what it’s worth, both the Yahoo article and the story on The Athletic predicted Monken could be whisked away by Illinois if that job were to open up. That will something to speculate upon another day. There’s still a 2019 season to play.
