HOMETOWN HEROES

One candidate rumored to have shown interest in the Weber State football job is ex-BYU coach Gary Crowton.

That's strange.

Weber once hired Ron McBride, who coached at Utah.

Then it hired John L. Smith, who coached at Utah State.

Then it allegedly made a push to hire Southern Utah coach Ed Lamb.

Now Crowton's name comes up?

This just in: 83-year-old LaVell Edwards has removed himself from consideration.
