    You guys did predict he would be gone IF West Liberty did not promote him to HC.

    Not blaiming Kellar. My source who has been spot on in the past said that he was brought in to WLU with the understanding that he would be elevated to HC this year. Clearly the current HC wasnt on board with that plan.

    WLU updated their football coaching staff after the Kellar defection. Gone are Kellar, Amedro and Estrada.

    Dont know if Amedro or Esrtrada are following Kellar to Glanville. In fact, id doubt Amedro is as the Kellar situation precipitated his leaving WLU.

    No word on Hill leaving but I wouldn't be surprised as he was Kellar's "guy."

    Guess the only good thing to come out of this is one good recruting class and 3 or 4 new coaches. The coaching staff except for Hill and Keller had been it place mostly for 10+ years and I think its safe to say they were a little stale. Of course the good that can come from newly hired coaches will depend on who they hire.

    Amedro has a normal job according to his Facebook but I’m sure he could be enticed

    What I heard was that the current HC had made some promises to Amedro including a pay raise (apparently he was the lowest paid coach on the staff) and elevation to OC. But there always was an excuse for not filing the paperwork (for the pay raise). Then Kellar was hired as the OC. When Amedro asked about at least getting his pay raise, he was told at that point, sorry, no money. He threatened to quit over it and the HC said he'd try and work something out. Again, it never happened so he ultimately did quit. Subsequent to him quitting, money miraculously became available for his pay raise and he came back for the remainder of the season. But by that point, he had kind of soured on the current WLU football administration.

    At least, that's the story I heard.

    I think it would take a whole lot of enticing for him to come back to WLU.

    Getting somebody to move to Glenville, WV, for a low-paying job would take a heck of a salesman.

    Glenville is making radical changes to staff is the rumor. West Liberty will suffer for it. Glenville wins the conference early in the kellar era. Ike is tired of losing

    I was referring to Glenville enticing him by making him OC or something like that. I have no idea how much they get paid in D2 or if Kellar even likes him, just a thought

    On a side note, why the hell wouldn’t we promote a record setting homegrown QB and already coach to OC? D1 does it all of the time. This program gives me headaches

    Point One: Everybody cheered when they brought in Kellar last year to turn around the offense. You'd be hard-put to find a guy with a better offensive resume and they went from 3-8 to 2-9.

    Point Two: You don't take up coaching in D2 to get rich. Amedro's making almost as much at his "real" job now as Kellar is being paid to be head ball coach at Glenville. With 2 young kids, there's no question Zach made the right move, difficult as it may have been. Given the current turmoil at Glenville - stay tuned - time will tell whether Kellar did.

    Amedro did not coach past the 4th game last year. I posted during the season that when I was on campus for homecoming I didn’t see him and asked where he was and was told that he quit totally prior to the game at Notre Dame. I have since been told that it was an UGLY separation, and the only way Amedro has anything to do with WL football again is if Waialae is gone. No idea exactly what happened. I did ask whether it was over getting a new OC and was told no, that he and Kellar got along great and Amedro wanted him to be HC, but this is at best second hand information.
    Anyone know why Estrada left??
