    I would take anyone at this point who knows what they are doing. And get us a few wins a year to build off. In two years a new guy gets us to 4wins I would be estatic

    And who will work for 65% of what other coaches in the league make.

    as you said 2014 was awhile ago. the bfe comment i am not sure i get. most schools are in rural communities to varying degrees. san angelo isn't panhandle state. i would guess it's over 100k. if anything it may be too big. towns that need the schools like maryville & pittsburg tend to support the school more than say edmond or topeka.

    6-5 on the reg wouldn't cut it for me either. i don't blame them (assuming the school is holding up their end of the bargain relative to being committed to winning).
    Go Bearcats!

    Anyone hearing any updates at NSU or anything else going on around the league?.. I know its bowl week for a couple teams in the league, nobody left in the playoffs from Miaa and recruiting is in full swing for many. NSU is going to need someone to get things going for a good first recruiting class for the new staff

But right guy can come in and make some hay if he can come in and motivate these kids to stay. Not a lot of upper class left to run off as most new coaches do.
    I am hopeful that you have some proof or insight into this as it differs from my information. Most of the kids that left after last year were on their new team's roster this year.

    I would take the guy. Modica is a very good defensive coach. He has built programs and like offences that run the ball. I'm in.


    Bytor I can't argue with your side. You seem to be following more than I have. I'm going of information from a team member but indirectly. Just know that spring starters didn't return for fall. And a bunch of freshman played season on both sides of line as injuries tore into the team.

    Now, who will be on Eckert's staff? I heard that none of the existing coaches at NSU would be retained.

    We'll see as this progresses... I've heard nothing about his staff... yet.

    I'm sorry, but he should retain the special teams coach. I saw that picture and immediately thought of the movie Old School and the character Blue.
