    I had to do a double take on this part. I read "Calli Sanders" as "Cael Sanderson".

    Re: Corey Ihmels to Boise State

    Corey built the success of our program on international recruits (he inherited Lisa Kohl). He'll have an easier time getting those recruits admitted to Boise State than he did to Iowa State.

    Didn't he go to Boise State for college? Thought I read that on Twitter.

    I must have missed the part of that e-mail that said "Open Letter to Everyone on Cyclone Fanatic".

    Dear Cross Country and Track and Field Student Athletes,

    As many of you recently heard, Coach Ihmels has decided to leave Iowa State University for another coaching position. While we are certainly sad to see Corey leave Iowa State University, we also respect his personal decision and desire to live in that part of the country.

    I also realize many of you have concerns and questions about what the future holds for each of you and for our program. Although there will be more questions than answers in the short term, I want each of you to take comfort in the following:


    1. There is not another program in the country that has an Athletics Administration that cares about and knows more about your sport than our administration.
    2. You have my personal commitment that hiring a new coach is going to be our number one focus. In fact, I have already been in contact with several potential coaches and I am confident we will find a coach that will not only continue our outstanding tradition, but will help elevate our program to the next level.


    We are not the first program nor are we the last program to experience a change in our head coach. We will get through this together and we will have a new coach on board as quickly as possible.

    If you have any specific questions or concerns, please direct them to Calli Sanders (csanders@iastate.edu) or 515-294-3706. Calli will serve as the point person for most of your questions as I will be dedicating my time to conducting the search for our new head coach.


    Go Cyclones!

    Jamie Pollard
    Director of Athletics
    I'll second the other posts that "like" having a boss that you know is interested in this since he is track guy himself. Can't see him shorting our program.

    At a school with thousands of international students, I can't imagine that the obstacles are really that great to admitting international recruits.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Corey Ihmels to Boise State

    I would imagine Pollard would want the best coach possible to be coaching his son here at ISU in a few years, right?

    Re: Corey Ihmels to Boise State

    As usual, coaching changes are good news and bad news.

    Good news
    The new coach will be more even handed between women's and men's teams.
    The new coach can bring in better training methods that will keep athletes healthy and therefore more competitive.
    The new coach will be able to attract a higher level of recruit especially with the facilities ISU has in place.

    Bad news
    What do top recruits like Anna Holdiman think?
    Ihmels did have success this year winning the Big 12 Women's XC Championship.
    Will Lisa Uhl remain involved with the program since she and Kiel just moved back from Portland.

    Overall it seems like a strange move but considering JW Hardy was out at Boise State in April. Ihmels must have had a eye on leaving for a some time. Not better facilities, not a better conference, low talent on roster, lateral move on salary ... hmmmm.

    At worst he is taking over a program at the level that ISU was at when he took over.

    Your opinion ... I'm familiar with Boise's current roster and who they have recruited over the last 5 years and they are not at the level ISU was at when he took over ... they are worse.

    Go back and look at the HS times of athletes in both programs and you will see the difference.

    Re: Corey Ihmels to Boise State

    Apparently he Loved Boise when he lived there. This was one of his "dream" jobs that happened to come open. It's not necessarily a better school/salary/program but it sounds like loving the city/area can make up for that, at least for him.

    I'm more bummed for the assistant coaches. My husband is good friends with quite a few of them, and they'll most likely be looking for new jobs.
