I am hearing from a very good source that a deal to make Donny an assistant coach at Iowa State is in the works and could be finalized this week...
This would be a huge hire for KJ if true
Pritz was responsible for recuiting McCauley and Thielke to Wisconsin and their #1 recuiting class this past year.
I hope this is true, but only if he is here for a few years. If he takes the job I hope we are not looking for a new assistant coach after next year. Donny will be on the short list for any school looking to hire a new head coach next year. That being said this would be a big hire for KJ, but either way I believe ISU is heading in the right direction.
I assume that him and Barry Davis and/or Barry A (The AD) must of had a major falling out. I bet he would be at American if he never this was going to happen. If a quality head coaching job came up next year, he'd be interviewing.
I think the Michigan thing and American deal might have lead to the fall out. Interviewing for jobs, but really wanting a time table to take over the Wisconsin job. Probably similiar to the Cael situation, except Barry A didn't force Barry Davis out.
This would be the perfect scenario IMO. The one noticeable difference between KJ and our previous coach is recruiting. Pritzlaff can fill a huge hole there, and can give this staff a connection to some of the better Midwest programs. that would be a huge lift for this program. Get it done!!
