Story coming next week, but we caught up briefly yesterday and, man, what a post-retirement he’s had. What a post-retirement he’s having. He’s in the office at his uniform sales shop in Dallas. In the background are photos of his ranch, where he raises and sells quarter horses.
He says you’ll be seeing more of him in Morgantown soon. He’s only been back twice since his hall of fame career on campus.
Best part of the conversation: We were talking about how much the campus has changed — his two trips back to WVU were both in the past two-and-a-half years — and that somehow led to the late Jim Carlen and how he’d tell me what great things happened once there were major roads into town.
Howley, amused and almost dismissively, said, “Roads?”
Old school. Loved that.
