"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
There have been some posts on this board re: Casteel, but I haven't seen any since the news was confirmed that Holgorsen is going from Oklahoma State to West Virgina,. So, hopefully this forum topic is not rehashing conversation that has already run its course.
Holgorsen becomes the offensive coordinator and head coach in waiting next season, becoming head coach in 2012. Assuming that Holgorsen doesn't bolt like Muschamp did from Texas to Florida, I have to wonder how this affects Casteel.
I know he has turned down Michigan before and maybe he's only interested in leaving Morgantown for a head coaching gig. And, I don't know that Brandon feels warm and fuzzy about RR's WVU buddies on the defensive side of the ball.
Still, you have to wonder. It goes without saying that he has to by default be better than stuffed animal in the face GERG, he knows how to run the 3-3-5, has a track record of success, and just maybe he brings some defensive recruits with him.
