    Any of you Shipp guys heard anything about support staff? And what about Tomasetti? Are they giving him the OC job?
    Things are pretty quiet at Ship. I can't see any of the coaches leaving other than Tomasetti and possibly Tony Johnson since he's a volunteer coach (DB) and could possibly get a salary assistant position as maybe DC or DB coach at the Ville under Morgan. Chances are he'll dig into the local high school possibly snagging former Ship players who are High School coaches to start filling out the coaching staff at the Ville. If Tomasetti leaves as we all expect I would love to see Mac find another creative mind OC like he did when he lured Yurich away from Edinboro.

    FINALLY....it's June and Millersville now has 3 coaches..!!!!!
    Former interim HC Sutjak will stay as the DC and as expected, Tomasetti is coming over as the OC.

    About time they finally announced what we all knew was going to happen weeks ago. I think Ship needs to pluck a QB, WR, or RB coach away from another PSAC school to be the OC. Assistants are pretty much on year to year deals aren't they? Coach Mac is a defensive guy so he obviously can't call plays and Coach Lee was the OC when Rocky was HC but he called plays for the outdated Wing-T offense that I thought would never leave Shippensburg lol.

    Looks like Coach Morgan may have raided another coach from Shippensburg as Volunteer OL Coach Jake Minnich is no longer on the coaching page for the Raiders.

    I suspect he'll be a fulltime assistant getting a salary from Millersville to be the OL coach under Coach Morgan.....

    D III Wisconsin-Stevens Point HC opening. Two of the 4 finalists:
    former Millersville HC Greg Breitbach
    Lock Haven HC David Taynor
    both were on staff there in '04-'05, Breitbach as an OC, Taynor as an Asst Coach

    in other news.....on the doorsteps of July and Millersville has no assistants hired...a HC, an OC and a DC.

    How many HC apply for another HC position at a division lower than where they currently coach??? Pretty darn interesting and also has to have the players questioning his loyalty. It's one thing to take a position late when you're moving up a level but to go from a D2 to D3 program I would have an issue if I were a player even if he isn't picked and returns to coach at LHU for the 2018 season. If it were the LHU OC or DC I would totally understand as even though its a division down he's getting a promotion to being a HC but this would seem to be a lateral position move.

    I'd say ones who value other things more than moving up the NCAA ladder.

    Haven in such a mess this would be a step up. At this point the guy is who he is.. a lower level head coach or maybe a higher level position coach. That Wisconsin public league is good football and competitive, and almost any situation is better than Lock Haven football (sadly).

    Here's the other reality: Lock Haven wouldn't even be a good D3 team. A Mount Union or similar would hang 45 on them.

    There's no hope there. He's getting out of Dodge.

    Plus the upside of DIII (and private schools in FCS or DII) is that you spend far less time hustling for dollars. Sure you have the annual golf outing and other events but you're not doing the work just to be able to make ends meet or increase your scholarship dollars.

    I think Mount Union could hang 45 on most PSAC teams. Sure they're DIII but that's a well-coached cohesive program. You don't have their run of success without knowing what you're doing.

    Lou Tepper was close by a few years.

    My thinking is what is he really getting himself into if he does get this HC position at Stevens-Point. Their HC quit 4/23 to take the HC position at another D3 school that has averaged 1 win per year the last 4-5 yeas so is Dave walking into a position just as bad as his current. If so at least the winter weather is a little more pleasant in Lock Haven than Wisconsin lol.

    I saw online that Alvernia special teams coordinator and strength & conditioning coach Dan Beard is headed to Millersville. He was a grad asst coach at Ship a few years ago.

    ok....so a few things....1st, what kind of an athletic program is the AD running there? Gallagher approves and names the former Ship OC as Millersville's new OC. Why is it, a month later, the guy is still pictured in a red Shippensburg football shirt? I mean you have this pompous AD and his coaches that preach attention to detail, then you have this. It may seem like no big deal to some, but I think it's just another example of how slovenly and out of sorts Millersville's athletic department is. Tell the guy he's hired, FedEx him a Millersville shirt, take a selfie and send it back. BAM...done....or at least have one of the computer lab snowflakes photoshop him a black shirt.
    Next, in response to the above post about the Alvernia S&C coach coming to Ville. There's hardly any off-season left. FScot82/IUP/ShipFan.et al, do you guys know if assistants take as much time to hire, process wise, as the HC or is Gallagher putting his siesta ahead of his hiring responsibilites? I can't believe how late it is.

    I think it would have been better to say he was the HC of D2 Millersville and leave it at that.
