I was a bit surprised by this hire. Based on the advice I was giving WF from my seats at Yullman during the Navy game my wife told me that I should be the OC. I assumed when I heard about the opening that she had some inside information and was not being snide. Did anyone besides my wife hear that I was under consideration for the spot? I would ask her but she would think it was another attempt to bring up the subject of a family trip to Disney for a pre-Christmas vacation.
If only you put something out on social media SOMEBODY would have said you were a candidate. Hope you don't go to the press conference in your Green jacket expecting to be introduced!
Me being under consideration would not be totally crazy. I have not brought this up on the board before because I try to stay modest but I did play second/third string offensive guard on our high school JV team for one year before moving on to Soccer (with similar results). It may be that WF would want to gain access to some of the plays we ran back in the early 80s.
I can top that! I was Captain of the JV team as an 8th grader (and got the crap beat out of me scrimmaging the Varsity!) By the time I was Varsity ready, I played golf!! I was too senseless with pads on, never thought I'd get hurt but was getting killed at 5'11 and 148#! Was a force in Fraternity football (and dorm league) at Tulane, though. Had the entire DKE team try to put me through the glass doors of Monroe after my 3rd pick (first two were pick 6's) against them!
Which fraternity, DFC?

I hope Hall works out but ??????? Didn’t we beat the snot out of Memphis? They seemed to have relied on one back for their offense. Hope he surprises the snot out of me!

At least Hall didn’t call the plays for Memphis.

Ok, I got it.

And I respected the hell out of RR for staying in the face of Cowen pulling the rug from underneath him. That was a class act that showed tremendous loyalty to the kids he coached. And I would accept Hall's decision either way. He's a TE coach at Memphis, not the OC, and Norvell hasn't moved on (yet?)
+1,000,000. Totally class move by RR. What a happy ending he gave us to that season.

We did but they got better as the season went on. Plus as was just mentioned he wasn't their OC.

I've often wondered if the Green Wave could have won that Liberty Bowl had RR not stayed for it. My conclusion was no, we wouldn't have rallied after falling behind early without a coach that the whole squad had been through the wars with and had confidence and respect of the team. It truly meant a lot to Green Wave Nation that Rich Rod stayed for the bowl game, and I'll always be grateful for that.

During the Cow/Dick regime, those qualifications would have had you neck and neck with CJ, for the head coaching job.

When are we going to morph this thread into "Will Hall needs to be fired"? It won't take long; there are already remnants and Hall hasn't even done anything.

Ricky Bustle........pre-Hud Cajun coach. Actually, some of those names just don't make much sense as applicants for that job..

I see Tony Hull on that list as well. He's the local guy that's recruiting LA for Kansas. Wonder if Miles is going to keep him there.

That was the exact question asked on RP when the list surfaced.

As someone said though, context matters.

Apparently the list was obtained via a FOIA request.

For those interested, here's the link to the full pdf.

Congrats Nut, you’re memory is still razor sharp. I didn’t know that Karcher was still in football. Where has he been coaching? The Alaskan high school circuit?

I guess head coaching jobs are really hard to come by and a lot of guys see it as their ticket to a better head coaching job elsewhere if they're successful. Having said that, I'm still surprised by the amount of interest in an FCS head coaching job in the Southland Conference.

It sounds like hall gets it . . . And by that I mean it echos everything we’ve said for two years. Predominantly throw to the TE and throw to RB’s in space. Additionally some have said that in order to win in the aac you need to score big and throw the ball. This lends credence to that thought
