MSU announces DL coach Ted Gill's contract will not be renewed for 2013 season.
please let the flood gates open!
Guess Dantonio wasn't pleased with our D Line play this year, and I can't blame him
Good. He doesn't recruit.
Michigan State had been one of only 36 schools not to make a coaching change this offseason, and had Gill been with the team another season, the Spartans would have been one of only four in the nation to keep the same staff intact for three consecutive seasons.
Anyone know of any candidates? Possible internal hire? Interesting to see this after Worthy went pro early and Gholston too.
Read multiple places that he does not like to recruit.
let's hire an elephant hunter.
Our D-line has been great for the last two years. We stop the run cold.
Hopefully that shows that someone else is on the block as well because while he was not great by any measure he was far from the worst. (Roushar, Samuel..)
This. I think this move is much more about recruiting that coaching.
Impossible! Dantonio is loyal to a fault!
Ted Gill has been a great coach. He'll be missed. Hopefully someone can come in and fill his shoes.
Now fire OC and OL coach.
so should Dantonio do what everyone wants and fire Roushar...what irrational over the top hatred will people have to bitch about next? His replacement before we even play a game? Random position coach? Izzo's lack of ability to develop big men?
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
I don't care who it is, I just hope Narduzzi gets to pick his guy.
Gill graduated from Idaho State in 1973. He lettered in '68 and '69. Do the math and he's 62-63 years old. Maybe he got to the point where he wasn't looking forward recruiting until he was 65.
Diverting attention away from Roushar
Wait, our defensive line was the problem in 2012? Hm...
Have to say that this one surprised me...
The moment is eternal
It wasn't what was expected for sure, but I'll be stunned if Gill goes and no one else follows.
Here's how the interview should go:
Dantonio: Tell me about yourself.
Candidate: I am an elephant hunter. Here is who I have signed - average 4.25 stars.
This is kind of strange, honestly. I can understand the recruiting standpoint but Gill coached in the NFL and our DL has been rock solid the past few years.
