Boilers in the NFL: Greg Long

Surprised nobody else picked up on this but OL Greg Long got picked up by the Arizona Cardinals. Beyond the fact that Long's a Purdue graduate transfer (by way of UTEP), there is another, one-degree, Boiler connection: per the article, his line coach in AZ is Sean Kugler, his old HC and recruiter at UTEP... who's also father to Purdue standout (and later UTEP grad assistant) Robert Kugler.

I liked Long a lot- here's a lightly recruited 2-star guy out of high school who transformed himself and ended up receiving conference honors in both C-USA and the Big Ten, and is now fighting for playing time in the NFL. Well done, sir.
