For years it hadn’t been possible for Jack Bicknell to come back to Orono. The former UMaine football coach had other teams to lead after he left the Black Bears…. first Boston College and then teams in NFL Europe.
But finally the day happened this weekend.
On Saturday he was back on the sideline and on the field for the coin toss before the game with James Madison.
It had been 36 years since he had been here.
