We need to start flight tracking Tedford, Belichek and the corpse of Woody Hayes.
from before the Roushar hiring
So far this week, all of the attention in the world of College Football has focused on the University of Michigan and their new head coach Brady Hoke. Thats the biggest story and [...] News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of Detroit. CBSDetroit.com
Well it is kind of debatable as to what is a 'better' position. You may be correct in your ranking of the football coaches career ladder but it is still possible that DR feels that, for him and for his family, going to NO is a 'better' position.
Since when? Both are two steps away from being an NFL head coach. It's a lateral move.
NFL head coach and Roushar. Now thats funny.
@BFeldmanCBS: Charlie Strong not only L'ville coach who had other good offers this winter. OC Shawn Watson declined opps at VT, MichSt & USC, per source
DO WANT Shawn Watson
A man's gotta eat!
Yes. This also proves we are looking outside for candidates.
Going to have to bring some $$$ to the table.
Yup. Can't pay 300k for a good OC.
This is the key, $$$. Pay someone! Ticket prices and "donations" for season tickets continue to rise, use it to pay a good coach!
Wonder how many other people turned us down.
Maybe the reason we promote from within is because people don't want to take the job.

I wouldn't assume that's the problem. Watson could have stayed because he likes working for Strong and Louisville, or any number of reasons. When it comes to coaches I feel the same way as with recruits, don't want anyone who isn't thrilled to become a Spartan.

I think it's clear from that guy turning down opportunities at USC + VT as well as MSU he wanted to stay put..
And it'd prob cost too much to uproot him. I'm curious how much we will spend on a new OC.
I disagree with this. I can imagine that maybe other BCS OCs don't want to take the job but I imagine most other FBS OCs wouldn't mind coming here.
The reason we promote from within is almost certainly because Dantonio prefers continuity and that's easier to keep when you promote assistants and bring in new position coaches.
Narduzzi makes $600k for a top 10 D. I imagine we won't offer our new OC any more than 350-400k at the most. I still think its more likely that they promote Salem and hire a new RB coach/recruiting coordinator.
Absurd. You're confusing the MSU OC position with UM head coach.

Think Salem has excellent shot. Interviewing others tho 2 confirm RT @saleemyas3: @footballscoop Do you have any names on possible MSU OCs?
More on Mich St… hearing Dantonio feels confident in Salem; but meeting w others to see if blown away; and to confirm Salem is best option
Thanks. I am not sure how this works, should I give an acceptance speech or something?
I do declare, the first to say it on this thread!
My bad. I missed your post. Sorry, Fred.
