    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    Both fine guys, but I'm not sure I like this. I really feel like we could use something new from the outside. This seems like it could be a mistake

    Hmmmmmm. I has a suspicion this could be the case. Kind of wish there was new blood coming in. Guess we will see what happens.

    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    Awesome, because this didn't fail miserably last time. This is your job on the line Rhoads. I guess I'd rather have Sturdy take over. The only line of reasoning I can see for this is to keep recruits on board. Would really really rather prefer an outside hire, someone new and excited to revamp this fan bases spirits for next season. I'm looking forward to next year but promoting within again doesn't give me much confidence.

    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    Klenakis hasn't even been here for a full calendar year. I'd call him new blood.

    If we hadn't hired him this past off-season, people would be jacked about the hire. I strongly prefer him to Sturdy.

    Look at his resume and quit blindly saying stuff like "hire from outside". This dude knows how to put a successful offense together, and is a run-first type guy who would create an offensive identity. Mess's resume did not support the promotion nearly as much as this does. Yeah, both Mess and Klenakis were on-staff prior to becoming OC, but that's where the similarities end. Klenakis is 10x more qualified for that job than Mess ever was.

    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    Did we not see this coming with the initial hiring of Coach K? It is hard to imagine that he came here not expecting to become OC. Rhoads may have told him that he still had to give Mess another chance, but then the job would be his if Mess didn't deliver. And here we are.

    This is true. I suspect that despite all the hype about the Pistol and such leading into the season, Klenakis didn't get as much of a chance to implement his ideas as he would have liked. Plus, we'll still be hiring 2-3 new people to fill in at RB coach, QB coach, OL coach, etc.. There will still be plenty of new blood on that offensive coaching staff.

    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    Klenakis has been there for a year, not exactly old blood. He's one of the innovators of the offense we're going to be running. I think he's an all-around qualified person to run the offense.

    A month ago, I would have fumed at this idea but you bring up a great point. Remove the last year from Klenakis's resume and it looks pretty good. Certainly much better than Mess's. They do need to find a capable QB coach. I would bring in Flynn. He's a guy who is likely pretty impressionable yet, not set so firmly in his ways and I believe is qualified to do that job. You probably bring some ties in to Texas too. So then, you probably have two more guys to go out and hire. One is probably and Oline coach because I think doing the OC job and coaching 15 guys on the team is too much.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    Agree with Al, people would have fawned over Coach K if he was hired as the OC last year. I've only seen a little bit of him in interviews and videos but seems like a coach who can be the leader the offense needs.

    IMO it would be a huge risk for CPR, if Coach K doesn't work out that's twice he's been unable to evaluate an OC that he's spent a lot of time around.

    Yawn...

    After last season, hard to get excited for such a vanilla move.

    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    At first glace I was not to happy about this, but neither of these two would be that bad of a hire; it is certainly a better move then promoting Messingham was. My first choice would be to bring in some new blood/fresh ideas, but this wont make me that unhappy, I guess.

    Re: Football Scoop hints at Sturdy/or Klenakis promotion

    If we hire Coach K or Strudy, do you think we bring in Sage as a QB coach or something. What about Todd Blythe as a WR coach? I think he is at UNI
