    McCarney

    Just thought some of you might find this interesting. I was browsing Minnesota's message board and read a thread about potential replacements for Brewster. It seems as though most Minny fans think Brewster being replaced is a forgone conclusion. Anyway, a couple posters listed McCarney as a potential candidate & thought he'd be a good option.

    It'd be nice to see Mac get another chance, he deserves it. But, it would be tough seeing him in Gopher garb!

    Re: McCarney

    Could he punch Goldy Gopher out?

    I'm all for Dan getting another chance. If he started a win streak over Iowa up there, that would be all kinds of fun.

    If Mac makes a comeback to being a head coach, I don't think coaching the Goophs would be the best career move.

    Re: McCarney

    he's a defensive line coach right? wouldn't a D cord job be the next logical step? Besides, he's doing a great job at florida. Makes 300k a year, and oh yea, he lives in Florida :)

    Re: McCarney

    I hope he gets it, but I wouldn't if I was the AD at Minnesota. Leech and Mangino and soon Mark Richt are just sitting out there. The biggest thing DMac is gonna have to over come to ever get another head coaching job is 56-85 (27-68).

    Re: McCarney

    I hope he doesn't take that job. I hope he lands one but Minnesota isn't going to be a good job for anyone. Minny will have a tough time making it to bowl games in the new Big 10 with their division.

    Re: McCarney

    Minny hired Mangino is a special consultant recently, so that tells me he might move into the HC position at end of year or sooner.
    This was coming from a friend who goes to UM so I dont know the relevance of it per say.

    They'd be wise to hire him. Same fan apathy as KU, but better recruiting and stadium.

    Even somewhere with low expectations, you have to do better than Brewster's done this year.

    That was a false report. Mangino is not on staff in any capacity. (Insert capacity joke here)

    Too bad the money they make from the Big 10 network is more than they'll make from bowl games. Otherwise we should get them to join the big XII.

    Re: McCarney

    IMO - Mac's best chance to land a head job again would be with a program with Zero Expectations due to some serious history of losing, that is what he accomplished at ISU - reestablishing expectations by rebuilding the program, unfortunately he wasn't able to thrive under fan expectation - very unlikely he will get a chance at any program that has existing expectations due to the record

    His record shouldn't be held against him. ISU was at a very low point when he came in and not many would take the job because it would mean more L's than W's. He built ISU into a respectable program and if he had chosen to recruit a kicker he have a much better resume and probably still have a HC job.
