With Fickell gone to Wisconsin, who gets the Cincinnati job?
I would think Kerry Coombs would be the best equipped to do this, although I'd want rock solid coordinators with him.Brian Hartline or Jesse Minter are two names I've heard. Urban and Deion Sanders are others but I can't imagine either are serious candidates. Comes name interim, but will that be enough to keep recruits? Need to make a permanent hire asap so you don't lose too many guys either in the portal or just recruiting in general.
Whoever it is needs to keep the current philosophy of recruiting the 250-300 mile radius outside Cincinnati hard. Keep those kids home, use that as your base and branch outside the state for some bigger names/needs.
ESPN reporting he's the interim. WHy wouldn't he go to Wisky given the chance?
Plus it will be addition by subtraction for SWO HSs who lose their talent to him.A school like UC or Miami would be smart to hire him as their DBs coach.
Wright State basketball did the same with a local supposed "recruiter" coach and it has made an enormous difference for their recruiting IMO.
Better than Colorado? In no way is the UC in Cincinnati better than the UC in Boulder. They are temporarily better in football right now. That’s it.Would he really want the UC job? It’s better than Colorado, who already offered, but it feels like it’s going to have be a big time job to get him out of JSU
You’re right, but that’s the fault of the administration at Colorado for continually whiffing on HC hires. If they ever get it right they have the resources to surpass the Bearcats. Heck, they should have took a swing at Luke…though I doubt he would have entertained the idea.Temporarily? They’ve been a better program from close to 15 years.
