Earl Hansen is old school in a PC environment. Exactly what Paly needs. He knows what he wants (football), but he also can smile (a little) when the other sports want what they want. He has a pretty good ear, and he needs to make tough decisions, which he does.

Paly is not a jock school, period. That is a good thing. Paly attracts good coaches, in general, and Earl weeds out the lesser ones. It is a tough environment, and he makes it happen. He deserves the AD of the year award.

Good job, Earl. You couldn't pay me enough to do what you do.

Great Job, Earl Hansen. Who knew that an old Cubberley Cougar could have such success with our rivals! Well done and congrats!
