Scott Pioli Commencement Speaker in 2019

Post by Deltaguy1 » Mon May 06, 2019 11:01 am

Just read in the New Britain Herald newspaper that Scott Pioli will be this year's commencement speaker at the XL Center (nee Civic Center) in Hartford. He'll also get an honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters from CCSU.
He's still got his endowed scholarship in football active (hmmm, Double Dare in progress!).

The New England Patriots are one of the greatest sports dynasties of all time. And you can make a very strong case that Scott Pioli is one of the pillars of that dynasty. Yet another great CCSU success story.

Just announced that he is "stepping down" form his job with the Falcons.
Scott Pioli, who’s been with the Falcons as the assistant general manager for the past five seasons, elected to leave the team, the Falcons announced Thursday.

“We understand and respect the decision Scott, (his wife) Dallas and their family have come to today and wish them nothing but the best,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “Over the last five years Scott has not only provided tremendous value to me, but to the entire the Falcons organization.”

Personally, I hope this means he is in the running to be the NY JETS new general manager! [-o<

As a Falcon's fan and a CCSU Alumni...this is upsetting to me.

The Jet's would be a graveyard....just stay home at that rate :lol:

Very impassioned speech.

I posted this elsewhere stating basically that THIS is the way CCSU should be represented.

I recall that horrible KC Chiefs incident but I didn’t know that Scot was the guy trying to talk the player down!
