    Wally Burnham

    Anyone else think Wally was the best hire CPR made?

    He gets more from less than any coordinator i've seen. Granted the hok offense is really bad but he defense shut them down today. Over his time here the D has kept us in games whereas the O has dragged behind. The D under him has looked more prepared in games than i've seen under previous regimes.

    Thoughts?

    Wally's worth his weight in gold. I hope he coaches us for a few more years.

    We'll only get him for a few more years before he moves to a higher school to coach DC or even become a HC. When the hawks fire KF, he better not take that job. Because I know they'll come calling.

    UNI has already made a strong case according to my sources. It's a great opportunity, but I hope he doesn't bolt. If they can pay him 50% of his current salary I heard he's gone. :(

    Wally is an outstanding coach, but he is 70. He'll be retiring in a few seasons, not moving on to a different school.

    Re: Wally Burnham

    One big reason we got him is because he wanted the opportunity to coach with his son.

    Guys that are head coaches into their 70's are few and far between. They also don't START being a head coach at 70.

    I agree with almost everything, except for the more with less, in reference to this year's team anyway. We've got a lot of talent on this defense.

    Re: Wally Burnham

    Best defense I have seen in years but, why don't we put pressure on the QB?
