I would like to say that Joe Novak will be missed. He took kids that others overlooked or were told they would be better off at a D3 school. He always coached .... and thats what a great coach should do. I will miss reading about how some kid from nowhere became a super person because of a coach named Joe Novak
Joe..Could you do the world a big favor ? Teach the rest of Big Time Schools what it truly means to be " just a coach"
Smile ....All your former players are!!!

Joe Novak represented what is great about sports. He is a class act.
