Pretty well says it all.

Marcus Knight has been coaching up at Northern Michigan as the receivers coach/passing game coordinator for a couple of years after a few years playing in the NFL. Apparently the head coach was let go and Marcus and the run game coordinator were named interim co-head coach.

Congrats to Marcus. Hopefully that HC title will stick for him somewhere in the future.

He was friends with my girlfriend's roomate.  I didn't hang out with him, but talked with him enough to know that he was a really good guy.  If memory serves he was one of like 12 kids, and always seemed to be a really respectful and character guy.  I always rooted for him and wish him the best of luck in the coaching world.

I remember Bill Curry singing his praises when he was a player.  I also remember a FOF story about Marcus being a super nice guy.

As a side note, I expect any feature stories to mention that he was a Michigan football letterwinner from the state of Alabama.
