Well, I think it says more about his confidence as a coach, imo. If I were interviewing, my first question would be, "Why did you take that demotion back in '11? Seems like you guys were on the right track in a tough place to win, yet you left to take a demotion?"
In the end, it's probably better that he left now, while JB is still young and we have some younger receivers rather than doing this next year. I know I'm going to get blasted for this, but if anyone wants to review my posts, I was never overly impressed with what he was doing here. And questioned on many ocassions weather or not he was right for this job. Next year is a "Could have been" now, which we'll never know. But personally, I don't think he'll be missed all that much.
He might think the demotion is a quicker route to a quality head coaching job. Is it really hard to think that OSU QB coach - OSU OC - good head coaching job would allow him to reach his ideal destination faster than ISU OC - low level head coaching job - good head coaching job?
You can dwell all you want on ppg this year, but the problem was TO's. You can put some of that blame on him but not all by a long shot, and over the second half of the season we were much improved in that category.
any other short sighted questions?
My questions weren't short sighted. However your proposition that ISU's problem was TO's is. Three-and-outs aren't caused by turnovers. Hopefully next year, ISU will have an OC who doesn't compress the field to within 25 yds of the line of scrimmage. It should do wonders.
"Don't worry Boss...they can't do nothin' 'til they're through sparklin'..."
No it doesn't. Do you really think people around the country are going to notice?
Exactly and bottom line is we lost a coach to a really good program led by one of the greatest college coaches ever. If he had quit to take a high school coaching job or FCS assistant job, that would have looked bad, leaving for Ohio St does not.
Even so, it just doesn't pass the smell test. Can you name the last BCS OC (from a good program, not a "hot seat") that took a QB coaching job?
No I can't, but you were extremely confident that he would not go to OSU. In fact, you guaranteed it, as if you actually knew something. Instead, you were just another poster who claimed to know more than you actually do, and you were proven wrong.
