    If any of you think that McCarney would come here as a coordinator you are delusional.

    I'll probably be the only one to think this, but I'm not sold on Shane taking over the reigns for his father, if or when Wally leaves at the end of the year.

    At this stage, I'd likely prefer someone with experience.

    Why not have our best player on the field in that situation?

    Seems like a slap in the face a bit, but he was a pretty good DC at Wisconsin before he was the HC here.

    Re: Take this for what it's worth but...

    It's worth pointing out Shane has roughly the same resume as Mess. Iowa State is his first Division 1-A school to coach at. From what I've seen he's never been a defensive coordinator either.

    I'm not saying he won't be a good DC someday, just pointing out facts that show how little we know about his ability in that area.

    He has never coached offense in his illustrious career. Hell when he was d coordinator at UW, Alvarez would not let him make play calls for the unit he was in charge of.

    I don't really disagree with you on this but I think we can get away with him learning a little on the job because PR is a defensive mind and could help him along. That wouldn't bother me too much.

    I'll take no experience over experience showing you don't really know what you're doing.

    Is it possible that there are options besides those two?
    I don't think either of those sounds very promising.

    Fair point. But the popular understanding seems to be that Wally is grooming Shane for the position ... with PR's tacit approval. Right move or wrong, it seems like the likely one and should not surprise us when it happens.
