Former OL coach and OC Dan Clark pops up in Carbondale. He had been at Stephen F. Austin I believe:

Southern Illinois (FCS): Former Illinois State (FCS) co-offensive coordinator Dan Clark has joined the Salukis as offensive line coach.

Shelby is at least into his 2nd NFL contract? Wouldn't it be nice to have his naming rights on a fully decked out IPF:unsure:

Shelby is entering the 2nd year of a deal that pays $9 m per. I think it's a 3 year deal.

Except he was kicked from program before 2013 season. ... strong rumor it was unjustified, but kicked. He was popular and talented team-mate for sure at ISU.

I should add, he remained on good terms with the program. In fact, he continued in school and was still working out to get ready for pro days .. and that worked out very well for him ultimately.

I saw Shelby at the FCS championship game and spoke to him briefly. He had some raiders gear on with ISU stuff. He was excited for the birds. So i would think he still has a good relationship with ISU.

tough breaks for Cam Meredith ... he had the talent for NFL, but 2 injuries did him in. He got a decent contract though with Saints, and I think he qualified for NFL pension plan .. if accurate, at least he's got that.

Best wishes ... knew him a little - he was a truly a good human being and great Redbird player/teammate. Alway polite and never got full of himself.

Nice article, and a small video tribute/highlight to his ISU QB days .. even in NFL.
