WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany made a stop in West Lafayette on Tuesday as he marks his 25th year as the leader of one of the most prestigious athletic conferences in the country.
Delany toured the Big Ten in his first year as commissioner a quarter century ago and he's doing it once again this year as the conference celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Rose Bowl.
Of course the big topic around West Lafayette is head Coach Darrell Hazell's highly anticipated debut and from Delany's point of view, Coach Hazell seems to be right on course.
"From everything I heard, thumbs up," said Delany. "It's very open, stimulating and he is a strong leader and I think everyone is waiting with anticipation of the product on the field and see what happens. There is a lot of excitement in the Purdue community and a lot of respect for Darrell throughout the conference."
Delany did stay and watch the Boilermakers as they practiced.
