    Will Wisconsin come after CJL?

    Barry Alvarez fired longtime VB coach Pete Waite today, and I'm sure Christy is at the top of his list. She has said many times that she loved living in Madison when she was an assistant under Waite. Considering that she has already turned down one Big Ten job (Minnesota), I doubt we would lose her. She also has a $100,000 bonus coming if she says through the duration of her contract at ISU.
    But Jamie had better expect a phone call from Alvarez...

    The call wouldn't be the first nor the last. We'll have to keep supporting the program to keep her here. Bring on the crowds and facilities.

    VB needs a new facility in a bad way. That'd go a long way in keeping her around for the long haul. They deserve it, too. Arguably our most successful program.

    Cats I hope not. The U of W is a mess right now as is the State of WI. Elected officials here want to drive the University into submission and could care less if it costs the stature in any regard of sports, education or research. For her sake avoid this state.

    I can't speak to that, but it's a great VB coaching job. Depsite the program being down, they finished 4th in the nation in attendance I believe. Tremendous support for womens VB. And Alvarez has a big checkbook thanks to being in the Big Ten.
    CJL has a great thing going here, but lots of major coaches would listen if called.

    Re: Will Wisconsin come after CJL?

    Maybe the team can do some extra winning this post-season to give her some extra incentive. I would hate to lose her as ISU coach. This team really got me interested in volleyball. That and the local team when I first arrived here was good.

    Re: Will Wisconsin come after CJL?

    For many, football and MBB are the only concern, but, Pollard's goals have always involved a broad spectrum of success and the VB program is obviously a key poster child of that. While he can't upgrade all facilities at once, I would be shocked if he didn't do whatever is reasonably necessary to support CJL. We have a good collection of coaches whose names will come up every season as other schools go looking. While nothing is assured, I think ISU is a good place to spend a coaching career - "lifetime contract" for CJL!

    well, seeing as I live here, if she were ever, ever to leave ISU, I would want her to come to WI so I can still root for her and watch her team play. I think it would take a lot for her to uproot her life (mostly her kids' lives) from Ames. She has built a great program in Ames and gets a lot of support from the administration on it. I don't see her leaving now.

    It wouldn't be that much of a shock. Either her family or Joe's family (I can't remember which one) is in Wisconsin.

    I believe it's his family. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a good option in the future (though I never want her to leave!) but UW would have to really make a great offer right now. Their VB program is nowhere near ISU right now (though they do have the #1 recruit next year......if she stays), so she'd have to rebuild that (which we've seen CJL is great at) and try to regain hold on the recruiting in WI since it seems that us, Illinois, and Minny are getting a lot of the top WI players. That and they showed Pete and CJL's salaries from 2009 (I have no idea what they were in more recent years) and they were only $20k different. Madison is a more expensive town than Ames - and according to the COLA, that puts them at equal salaries.

    Doesn't CJL's husband also somewhat coach/help the team with her here?
