I realize the Bollman hire is not official, but regardless of who gets the job, is there any way Dantonio plans on calling the plays next year? Just curious if he has ever stated that he's opposed to it, or whether he has ever said it might be an option.
I know most coaches like to let the OC call plays so that they don't have too much on their plate, but there are definitely certain head coaches who have been successful calling plays.
Is this a possibility or no?
Considering Dantonio is a defensive oriented coach I doubt he will be calling offensive plays.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
MD is a defensive minded coach. So probably not.
That's what i figured, but I know we always heard last year that Dantonio would take over a few series per game. Or was that just a bunch of BS that the Roushar haters liked to spew?
Anecdotal at best
I don't know how anyone would ever get definitive proof of who calls what plays over a course of a game.
"MD was looking at his white laminated piece of paper a lot that drive and we scored, he must have called the plays!"
That's the extent of proof of MD play calling.
Second half of the eastern game last year I was front row on the 40 right in back of team. On offense dantonio had play sheets in his hand and was speaking into headphone.
It's definitive then.
And with Narduzzi being in the press box, it's just further proof that he was talking into the headset about the offensive play call.
I realize it's not likely, but I want to know if Dantonio has ever been asked about it or whether he has commented about it one way or the other.
I wouldn't even have brought it up if there weren't so many rumblings about Dantonio taking over the play calling in certain situations last year.
This board cracks me up sometimes. While in no way, shape or form am I saying he will call plays, to say that he's "a defensive coach" and ultimately have that translate to the fact he knows nothing about offense is comical. You think all he's ever done is study other team's defenses his whole career?
Guys I still can't believe Roushar is finally gone! I get giddy every time I think about it.
