After Northwestern football kicked off its season with a 16-6 upset over No. 21 Stanford at home in Evanston, the dean of the Wildcats football program led the dancing.

Assistant Jerry Brown, who coaches the secondary in his 23rd season with the school, was feeling funky after safety Kyle Quiero sealed the win by intercepting Stanford quarterback and Gonzaga graduate Kevin Hogan in the end zone.

We’re not sure what was on the stereo, but whatever it was it had the Wildcats hopping.

A staple of the Wildcats program since 1993, Brown has had plenty of time to perfect his form. He has contributed to the coaching tenures of Gary Barnett, Randy Walker and Pat Fitzgerald, who is now 9-1 in season openers for Northwestern. According to his Wildcats bio, Brown had a hand in 148 school wins as a player and a coach before this season.
