rumor: "non-BCS" coach headed to NFL, per @footballscoop (via edsbs)
I bet Troy Calhoun, Air Force head coach
He obviously wouldn't run the option in the NFL. The military academies only run that system because they can't run power because there are no fat guys in the military. Troy Calhoun is extremely respected and was an assistant coach for the Denver Broncos from 2003-2005 and was the Offensive Coordinator for the Houston Texans in 2006.
Nah man, your close though: Mike Hart.
I'm Ron Burgundy?
I think you owe me money.
Isn't ND technically BCS?
only answer that makes sense.... Boise wasn't considered to be a member of the BCS since they didn't play a season of Big East Football. Northern Illinois's coach already bailed and the other top non BCS ranked team at the end of the season is San Jose State (lol).
Could be a offensive/defensive coordinator. That was at least my first impression
It could be me.. I am not a BCS head coach.
Good luck! I hope you get the job.
it's me. i'm not a BCS coach. i did coach intramural football.
Oops, I forgot indiana is in a BCS conference. Got confused since ball state owns them.
Brian Kelly ? Does notre dame count as bcs?
It's Milos Kalifakinedes. He's a Greek wiz kid from the F.E.T.A. league.
I'll take a stab at this. I'm going to guess Chip Kelly is looking for a Defensive Coordinator somewhere amongst his former colleagues.
Mark Dantonio? We all know msu has nothing to do with the BCS.
That my friend is funny
Been predicting that he will Sabin them for a couple years now. So far that's not the case
a good coach to Sabin them.
Looks like it could be DeWayne Walker of NM State
I definitely remember him from that one New Mexico State game I saw on the ocho
Logged in just to upvote this. Hilarious, and awesome Lance Armstrong reference.
It's Dewayne Walker, from New Mexico State. A bit anti-climactic, but eh. Also, he's looking to jump to an assistant job.
Bruce Feldman just tweeted something about DeWayne Walker leaving NM State for an assistant job. Must be it.
EDIT: DANG IT! Well done ThWard, well done.
Usually he beats the living shit out of me well into the next day.
manti te'o's girlfriend.
Miami is hit with hard sanctions, ACC kicks them out and they become independant. Al Golden leaves for the NFL.
Not really though.
If it indeed is DeWayne Walker then I'd say this is a great decision on his part, if it's a coordinator position.
He has plenty of experience as a secondary coach in the NFL, so the only reason why I would see him taking another DB coach job is because he knows he's on the hottest of seats (NM st is terrible, so wouldn't be surprisng. ) Other than that I'd argue that it's a step down. If it's as a coordinator, than he:
- leaves the deep pit of abyss that is NM St football
- has the chance to produce a great defensive unit, which could in turn net him a higher profile college HC job, or even an NFL HC job
Do not think Peterson will leave Boise for a OC/DC job in the NFL. He wants to be a head coach not a coordinator.
I would think that no NFL team would be dumb enough to pursue Chris Petersen for a coordinator position (except maybe the Lions). His agent probably wouldn't even return the phone call.
Walker's Wiki page reads as DB coach for the Jaguars....
