Before he took the Portland State head coaching job, Jerry Glanville made one request of then-school President Daniel Bernstine that had nothing to do with money for the football program. “I asked him to be there on game days and pat our players on the helmet, shake their hand and wish them well,” Glanville says. Bernstine promised to greet the players, but last week —one day after he helped introduce new Athletic Director Torre Chisholm —Bernstine left the school to become president and chief executive officer of the Law School Admission Council in Newtown, Pa. • ESPN plans to spend most of next week at Viking football practice, chronicling the 65-year-old Glanville’s return to head coaching. — Steve Brandon
