    Default Open Job Rumblings?

    Are there any names floating around about the Seton Hill HC job?

    Also...St. Vincent and Thiel on the "local" level?

    My bet for SH is Mike Kellar.

    If WL was smart they'd force the current HC Roger Waillae to just the AD role and make Kellar the HC.

    Not that it matters to us......BUT.....

    St. Vincent has named former QB and current GCC Head Coach Aaron Smetanka their next Head Football Coach.

    Knew him as the star QB with the Erie Explosion champion indoor football team.
    He's got the ring.

    I think kellar is a good coach too, that's why WL should kick the current HC out and let him do it there. I think WL has the most scholly money in the MEC and is in a nice area for recruiting sandwiched between west PA and east OH.

    I’ll never doubt the guy after he turned arguably one of the top 3 worst programs in the region around in concord in 2 seasons

    He's beyond the ideal fit for the Seton Hill job. He knows the PSAC West. He knows the high schools. He's established as a head coach.

    He's also approaching the age where he might actually stay awhile rather than try a quick flip and get out of Dodge.

    Is Seton Hill a desirable job? Tough question. It's not an easy one. That's for sure. For starters, you're playing IUP, Cal and SRU every year. It's still a program in its infancy. There doesn't appear to be much support -- both from a fan base and also from the university brass.

    Advantages: Good academic school. Location is right in the heart of WPIAL country. Nice campus. Greensburg is a nice town although it will never be a 'college town'.

    Disadvantages: Good academic school (tougher admissions). Expensive. Off-campus stadium (yes, it's a high school stadium but so are 98% of the other PSAC stadiums). You have to be able to out-recruit the established IUP, SRU, Cal (and others) in their backyard. No history or tradition. No fan base. The job likely won't pay much compared to other top-end PSAC schools. Coach won't get the perks of being in the PASSHE (pension, etc.)


    I think he'd have much more success if he'd ever get the West Liberty job. But, that's a real messy situation down there. The big donor (I mean, BIG donor) loves the current coach by all reports despite running a fully-funded program in to the Lock Haven level. The fear seems to be if they can the current coach ... the money may stop flowing.

    I don't think they are that small minded. If the program becomes a winner, then more money will come. Everyone loves being with a winning program.

    Knowing Kellar track record at Cal and Concord as far as recruiting he didn’t seem to take that much interest in WPIAL players to begin with. If he gets scholarships almost guarantee he will be looking outside of Western PA. His last year at Cal there were maybe a Handful of starters if that from the WPIAL.

    I mean let’s be honest why recruit the WPIAL if you can pick from Ohio (Cle, Cin, Columbus, canton/Massillon, DMV etc where the quality of football is much better

    Pretty sure the current coach is also the acting AD. Simple enough solution is for him to keep the donor happy as the AD and let Keller run the show and get WL going.

    Sounds pretty simple enough at least.

    How many scholarships did he have at Lenoir-Rhyne? His teams went 3-8 and 3-7 the past two years. And this year, L-R went 12-2 losing at #13 West Alabama to start the season and at #3 Valdosta St in the regional finals.

    And West Liberty's offense didn't exactly light it up this year.

    True. He usually has some high profile D1 Qb transfer at least when he was at Cal. His son was Qb at LR who is sitting the Pine at Edinboro and WL well idk much about them but I’m pretty sure Zach Amedro has run out of eligibility

    I think the brass at SHU is pondering the question of why they are in the PSAC and D2 to start with. That school fits a D3 profile perfectly. They will pull out of the conference. It's just a matter of time. Remember, you heard it here first.
