If true, good for him. Hope he's learned from his mistakes here at ISU and has learned valuable lessons from coaching under Urban Meyer such that North Texas is just a brief stop onto better coaching gigs for him.
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
I love how they discredit ISU, saying things like "if he was able to have some success at Ames, he should be able to come into Denton where it should be easier to have success." What?! When was the last time North Texas was relevant?

Combined with a really solid new stadium. It's a real solid job for someone who can't get a major gig like McCarney or an up and comer.
North Texas would be lucky to get DMC to go there. That said, Dan is a talented assistant and could be one at any top tier program. If I were Dan I'd stay somewhere or be somewhere that wins national championships. But if he does end up at NT, I will be an NT fan.

May perpetual light shine upon him.
I hope he gets the North Texas job as I'll start rooting for him and his new team. And I live right in the north Dallas area and just a half hour away from the North Texas stadium. So I'll even go to game or two just to see DMC coaching again.
You would think he would rather be an assistant or a coordinator on a bigger team than be at the helm of a small school.
They have a larger student population than ISU, so they have a huge alumni base...its just that they are mostley UT fans. However, much like Central Florida and Southern Florida...some success breeds fans. I could see them rising up over the next 10-15 years with a little administrative support and success on the field.
