Honestly who did you think you would get? This YSU is not the YSU of days gone by. Coaches can see what they have to work with and you will not be able to attract another Tressel here again. The rise of the MAC teams and their visibility on T.V. and the decline in local population means that recruiting here is difficult. The salaries for assistants at bigger D1 schools make it much easier to stay and wait out more desirable head coaching jobs. Hell, even off field "analysts" make big money now. Hiring a HS coach might not be ideal but at least he is hungry and actually wants the job.You guys can put as much lipstick on this pig as you want. Hiring a high school coach for a FCS school is embarrassing and a pig. It shows how little people feel about YSU now. It is sad to see how the great program has become a joke and second class program in their own conference let alone the national level.
That's a great question. Even considering a redshirt year in 2014 and a medical redshirt in 2018 that leaves 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019 as playing years. Not sure how he has another year to play.Is Reed on the Blutarsky college plan? His YSU bio says he was at Florida from 2014-2016. His eligibility has to be done.
Yes. And he was just fired after five unsuccessful seasons.Didn't UNLV hire a HS coach a few years ago?
only positive is Crenshaw signing yesterday, he is going to be the ticket at the FCS level. hopefully they can get some athletes around him.The comparison is appropriate. Bishop Gorman, with recruited players steamrolled the h.s. Ranks, same as Hoban. Yet Sanchez found college recruitment a challenge and not the same animal. He was often overmatched in games coaching and failed the dream of being a savior to his supporters.YSU currently has a bad roster, produced by years of bad recruiting by Pelini. If anyone thinks Tyrrell will make the transition from recruiting h.s. Studs that steamroll regular h.s. Kids to recruiting competitive college players vs other same or better players, you better take a pill. He is woefully behind the 8 ball in talent and needs a total revamp. Their best player, Reed, just transferred out. It’s clearly a raging dumpster fire. A lot of bad years to come.
Doug Pederson played in the NFL for a dozen years and Nagy coached HS while he had a middling Arena League career. They weren't career high school football coaches like Tyrrell.Nice article from The Ringer on how high school coaching experience benefits head coaches-
Former high school coaches like Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy brought innovative schemes from lower levels to the pro game, as well as an emphasis on teaching and developmentwww.theringer.com
Well this is alarming.Crenshaw, if he can win the job, will be behind an OL that returns one starter and he was awful, being tossed around like a rag doll. The other starters will come from a collection of much lesser talents, projects with limited OL playing experience. They lack quality WR although Charleston shows promise. RB is woeful. Their best player, Reed , a DE and all league, just transferred out. There are some promising players on the DL but LBs and DBs are subpar and lacking. No depth and almost all of Pelinis recruit classes have been poor . I see years of big losing ahead. No playoffs. No titles. Near or at the basement of the MVFC.
BTW, rumors persist that more transfers out are coming.
Almost certainly one of Tyrell’s assistants. They don’t want to mess with the formula too much. Bringing in an outsider and totally revamping the program could mean the end of the dynasty at Hoban.
Who is it? Is it the guy who ended TT's HS career? The last thing TT will have seen is is the Orage and black celebrating.
