    Length of the OC search

    1. Suggesting to me it is someone coming from a bowl team otherwise I don't know why it wouldn't be announced yet. I was told last week it was Strohmeier but I don't know why an an announcement for him wouldn't have been made yet.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Length of the OC search

    Maybe it is Strohmeier and they want him to "recruit" during the dead period.

    Re: Length of the OC search

    I'm sure this is just crazy talk, but maybe, just maybe, they don't know who the OC is going to be yet and are still interviewing and trying to find the best candidate.

    Doesn't really work like that, unless he's recruiting IWCC guys.

    Re: Length of the OC search

    Per a report in the Ames Tribune (I think in the DLC commitment article), it stated that the staff would not begin interviews until this week (Dec. 17th). That means they should at least have a few targets and interested parties by now, but they are doing a good job of keeping it under wraps. We might start to hear some news toward the end of the week, but I wouldn't be surprised if it takes a couple more weeks.

    The interviews started over the weekend. Would think an announcement by Friday would be in order. I cannot believe the OC announcement would have to wait after the bowl game if applicable. We are not talking head coach here. Where is CPR today?

    Re: Length of the OC search

    Beings that we haven't heard anything on this since the firings makes me believe that we ARE looking outside of the program. At first, the word was we were hiring from within... I think the staff is really out there trying to land someone special (this probably is a pipe dream) otherwise a current staff member would have been announced by now...

    Agreed, we wont have an announcement for a few weeks, esp with the holidays upon us.

    The last 2 weeks have been major recruiting weeks. Now that that is over CPR will move on to recruiting an OC.

    Re: Length of the OC search

    The last OC hiring was announced on January 4th and came from within. Hard to tell when the announcement will come. And CPR is playing this one real close to the vest. I wouldn't want to make a wager on any scenario. I consider the names that are being thrown about will be an upgrade to Mess. So I consider the hiring of a new OC will be an improvement over the status quo of what we had.

    Re: Length of the OC search

    We should take our time and get the best guy. There should be a lot of OC's that want to prove themselves in college football's greatest offensive league, the Big 12. Especially for the money we are offering!

    Re: Length of the OC search

    Honestly don't care if it takes a while. I think if CPR had a guy he really wanted who was being vetted for other jobs he'd speed it up.

    Pretty much this and because it will much be easier to deal with the media when the coaches aren't trying to recruit. You have to remember that we lost 2 coaches who aren't recruiting anymore, so the other coaches probably need to remain in contact and reassure the guys they were recruiting that everything will be ok. Just makes the other coaches job that much harder.

    We also had a bowl game that year.

    OR....

    The staff was more worried about recruiting heading into the dead period, and figured they would take care of the OC position once the dead period hit?
