Your ‘All Rhoades Lead To Happy Valley’ Playlist

In case you’ve been living under a rock, former VCU head coach Mike Rhoades officially accepted the Penn State men’s basketball head coaching position Wednesday afternoon.

Rhoades comes to Happy Valley with 19 years of head coaching experience at VCU, Rice, and Randolph-Macon. His resumé includes Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year honors and a 373-189 career record.

To celebrate, we’ve compiled only the best songs with “road” in the title, in the hopes of helping remind the Mahanoy, Pennsylvania, native that all ~Rhoades~ lead to Happy Valley. From “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by John Denver to “Bless The Broken Road” by the Rascal Flatts, this playlist is sure to provide some sweet tunes for the (at least) seven-year road ahead.

Happy listening!
