Regardless of whether you were a MW fan over the years or not, my impression is that he had a knack for finding great coordinators. I hope the new coach can do the same.
Just to clarify... Yost was not a Wells hire

Re: Nervous about Gary

So it's pretty much official that Gary isn't coming back? Nothing is official until it's official People can always change their minds, but he withdrew his name this morning. Usually that is because there was a hint that a decision was made or about to be made and it wasn't the person who withdrew....

Re: Who are the finalists?

I think Hartwell telling the new coach that Frank will act as the bridge through the bowl game, and could be retained by the coach if he so desired is completely reasonable. Having it as a requirement that he be retained permanently as DC or another assistant seems like a big mistake to me. I can t...

However, some advanced stats show that Frank did very well last year and there's no reason to believe that our defense would have been any ...
