MSU is going big game hunting.
I admit I don't know enough about the candidates, internal or external, but I do trust Dantonio's judgement.
He has hinted enough about "changing with the times", "getting a qb that can make plays with his feet", etc.. I think he knows what he needs.
Montgomery is a great coach but if you've followed Baylor and specifically Art Briles' career at all you'd know that Briles handles almost all of the offensive playcalling himself. Briles has had prolific offenses since his days at Stephenville HS
I think he favors the guys/friends inside the program. Based on his prior track record as OC Rousharded had no business moving into that position to begin with.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
like all the people complaining about the names thrown out in "tOfficial O Coordinator Speculation Thread"
Behold the walls of Sparta: 10000 men and every one a brick.
Why do you think that he favors hiring from within? What experience do Salem/Warner have in implementing the type of offense that Dantonio wants?
Check out the football scoop website...there is all types of movement going on in college football right now. If MSU is able to open up its check book to compete with the B1G, MSU should be able to hire a competent coach. Purdue just released their staff salaries...their OC makes $400k/year. Wisconsin's OC makes $600k/year. In the MWC, San Diego State pays $300k/year.
Roushar did not leave for a better opportunity...MSU OC is a better position on the career ladder than NFL position coach...regardless of what the salary is.
You are either being intellectually dishonest or naive when you make those statements.
The last time this position was open Coach D made a horrific choice to promote an under qualified member of his staff. Many questioned this hire when it happened.
that depends on a couple things...I just tried to google what the avg. nfl running backs coach makes and couldn't....lill help? Bottom line to me is that DR isn't a lead dog. He's a supporting actor and there is nothing wrong with that. He by all accounts is a great guy but wasn't cut out to be OC. I SUSPECT he'll make a similar salary in N.Orleans but the cost of living is sky high so.....economically it's a bit of a step down but he's in a winning organization that's been thru some weird shit but I can see Payton being there a LONG time as he just signed a new mega deal that pays him more than anyone else in the league if I'm not mistaken. NO pressure now for DR.....great city and very good pay. Demotion? I guess it's all how you look at it really.
NFL position coaches make anywhere to 150-400k and he makes 300 k at state FWIW
so mattyfresh and so clean
I want to win games. That is all.
You have become my favorite poster (no homo).
Good insight and objective posts with an occasional laugh.
If we're going to throw out names with no chance to actually come to MSU, then I've got one...Josh McDaniels. Grad assistant under Saban, countless NFL connections, rings, and known as an offensive guru.
Of course he'd never leave as OC/QB coach in NE to be a B1G OC, but logic hasn't stopped anybody else in these threads.
Plus, it's fun to dream...
"When I was in school they told me practice makes perfect. Then they told me nobody's perfect. So I stopped practicing." --Steven Wright
Well great, now he's going to get a big head.
laconophilia is everywhere...
comparing salaries is not a way to determine if a job is a step down or a step up when it comes to an NFL coaching position vs a college football coaching position....there are many factors that go into this.

Yeah one of those factors is you don't have to spend so much time recruiting kids. NFL assistants can have somewhat of a life.
I heard Mariucci, Izzo, Dantonio, and Hollis had lunch earlier.

Mooch would be a solid get.
A man's gotta eat!
Oh, yeah, I'm sure this is legit.
