WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- He's barely been on the job for a month, but new Ferris State head football coach Tony Annese has returned to a part of West Michigan where his coaching career began.
The former Jenison, Muskegon and Grand Rapids Community College coach was in Wyoming Thursday night kicking off his "Tony Annese Tour."
Annese, along with members of his coaching staff, met Ferris State alumni and talked about -- what else -- football.
Annese was hired December 22 and had little time to prepare for signing day, which was eight days ago. Finally, he gets to decompress.
"I've been running around from building to building and trying to get in there with some of these guys who were already being courted by some institutions around here that are really good," says Annese of the weeks leading up to signing day. "We had to get in the battle and we got some good players. We were pleased with but it was wild."
