Football Scoop

The first ever football-focused blog, created with the aim of making money by providing insight into the sport and uncovering stories others have overlooked. Based in London, England and founded by Andy Rheam and Brian North, the site quickly became a major influential force in the football world.

The finalists for each award were selected from nominations by coaches, athletic directors, and athletic director personnel. The prior winners of the award then choose the winner from the list of finalists. If asked, most of the winners will tell you that this award means much more than others because it is chosen by their peers. Now in its 13th year, the FootballScoop Awards presented by AstroTurf has grown into a highly anticipated event within the football coaching profession. Awards are handed out to the winners at a reception during the American Football Coaches Association Convention each year.

Scoop

Together, the Roussel brothers bought Football Scoop in 2008. Fueled by rumors and reports filed by football staffers from programs all over the country, Football Scoop had been around for a decade. The site was low on flash and long on industry gossip: A linebacker coach at a D3 school feuding with his head coach meaning a job in Pennsylvania might pop ... a strength coach at a 1-AA tired of the business . . . A special teams coordinator at a mid-major interviewing with some Big East program.

Keith Allen created Football Scoop in 1998 because, as he puts it, he had some free time. Allen had gone from being an on-the-field coach at what is now Louisiana-Monroe to be an administrator in the football program at TCU. Dennis Franchione was the Horned Frogs' head coach. The unwritten rule: no one left the football building till Coach Fran left. So with the help of one of those How-To for dummy books -- how to build a website -- Allen skipped a trip to Vegas with his buddies for spring break to create a website, Football Scoop.
