Bang. That's why I asked the earlier question. This is a backward step for a coordinator, IMO. This is where Roushar's at. He's a position coach, not a coordinator, not a "Manager" type. Certainly, not an innovator. He's a very nice guy and a good position coach who is liked by people in the program. But OC?

Its five o'clock somewhere.
Photoshop request: Roushar's head on baby Jesus in the manger.
Just saw this thread...

Yeah...seems pretty obvious that change is coming our way. I am guessing that Dantonio's preferred way for this to go down is for Roushar to get another job and for the program to either hire an OC from outside the program or shuffle some things internally and hire a position coach. If Roushar cannot get a job, Dantonio will probably shuffle things internally and keep Roushar because he is a good position coach.
So if Roushar doesn't get the Saints job you are saying he will not be OC in the fall. Seriously ?
See Wisconsin in B1G Championship game?
"Sweet BABY JESUS, please see that our loved OC is able to land the Saints job and fulfill your plans."
HOPE HOPE HOPE
Stop being so cynical and start praying!
the Saints are a stable and successful franchise.
The money will be better for him and the pros are a good alternative for college coaches who don't like recruiting much.
Many spartans will donate to the DR relocation fund including myself if he gets the job.
You can hope and pray all you want but if Roushar doesn't leave on his own, there is zero chance he isn't the OC in 2013.
You don't say? I guess I'll stop praying for him to not get the job and then be fired.

Bingo. I sense the force is not with this one.
Not according to Vargman.
Well then my sarcasm was misdirected. I mean, not sarcasm, eh Bob?
I concur, unfortunately had to witness it while in the stands in Lincoln. was wondering why were they throwing all those 20 yard out passes into double coverage, and never exploited the middle with Sims.
That is why I asked the question about "advancement".
My research shows Roushar makes $305,000. I can not find what an average NFL running back's coach makes but I am doubting it is more. Assuming it is not...
I didn't ask the obvious follow-up question, but perhaps the writing is on the wall with the answer you mention. The only other explanation is that maybe he just doesn't want to recruit and his desire is to coach in the NFL for whatever other personal motivation.
that's a good point, BGS.
Interestingly, if SDSU can pay their OC $300k and they lose their old OC (Ludwig) to Wisconsin for $600k...MSU is going to have to step up their pay of assistants regardless of whether Roushar leaves or stays.
Narduzzi is making $500k-$600k and he is so much better at his job than Ludwig...
Hopefully, some changes are made and we pay our coaches competitive salaries.
I think I would take that bet at 10-1.
Well then it better happen in the next 3 weeks. If roushar is OC when spring practice starts, he will be here in the fall.
MSU threw 5 fewer passes than Iowa in that game and only completed 12-- for 179 yards (45 more than Iowa). Game came down to not making a stop and throwing a pass in OT that got tipped at the LOS (with a wide-open receiver waiting). But don't let the facts get in the way.
I think Roushar perfectly illustrates the Peter Principle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Principle
We've had very good running backs, and Roushar might be at his peak being a RB position coach. I'd be glad to have him demoted to one at MSU, but demotions cause other issues internally.
If he goes to the Saints, wonder if we hear in April "And with the 75th pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints select........LeVeon Bell, running back, Michigan State."
Fast-forward to Bell having 400 carries by December.
the 247 report says it is Salem, not Roushar that is interviewing. Five pages of wishful, but entirely worthless posts here?
"the 247 report" That should tell you all you need to know right there. Joe Rexrode said Roushar today and saw it from a couple other people as well.
