    If Jim Harbaugh...?

    If Jim Harbaugh comes to Iowa State and has any success, how long is he going to stay? If job vacancies open up at bigger schools, he will be in the conversation and a big name for these jobs. Maybe going for a lesser known name might the idea if we want this guy to stick around and commit to Iowa State Football.

    Re: If Jim Harbaugh...?

    I think we should hire a coach before we worry about how long he'll stay.

    Re: If Jim Harbaugh...?

    in order for Harbaugh to get a bite from a bigger-time programe, he will have to prove himself at ISU over a reasonable amount of time. In my opinion, this would be ~5 years since it will take him at least 2 just to get us moving in the right direction, and then another 2-3 for bigger programs to realize his coaching skill.

    Re: If Jim Harbaugh...?

    In my opinion if Harbaugh were to come to Iowa State I do not see him leaving unless it is for Michigan. I see him coming here, giving us 4-7 very solid years and then leaving for Michigan when Carr decides to give it up.

    BTW, does anyone know why Jeremy hasn't weighed in on today's events yet? I guess he could be having a really busy day at work......

    Re: If Jim Harbaugh...?

    How long is JP gonna let this guy stick around if he doesn't produce results in the first few years? We've seen he is pretty jumpy when it comes to hiring/firing new coaches, and he doesn't seem that patient.

    I am pretty sure he's tied up at work today. It's been a busy week for him.

    Re: If Jim Harbaugh...?

    Wait, first you are worried how long he'll stay before moving on to something "better". Then you are worried how long before Jamie fires him?

    Can we hire our coach first, please.

    Maybe if we can get a coach that only achieves mediocre results he will stick around forever.

    Re: If Jim Harbaugh...?

    The reality is you will not find another coach like Mac with the dedication to stay with a program like he did. More coaches are about moving up, and hate to break it, but we are far from the top.

    what I'm saying is if this guy does great in the first few years, he may head out for a bigger job, and if he doesn't produce results in the first few years, he may be gone too. I couldn't see this guy staying too long either way, unless he really wants to be at ISU.

    Harbaugh has already stated he eventually wants to coach in NFL... so Michigan isn't necessarily his one and only next stop.

    Re: If Jim Harbaugh...?

    I don't worry about the Michigan job as much as I do the Raiders. Harbaugh, from the stories I've read, is close with Al Davis, has aspirations to coach in the NFL, several of his current assistant coaches at USD have Raider ties and experience, and since Davis changes coaches once every three years or less, that is the biggest threat. (Similar to Jerry Krause's relationship with Tim Floyd).

    With that being said, he would still have to have success at ISU within the next three years to justify Davis (if he is still alive at that point) hiring him, and that success would have to be a minimum of a B12 Title. If he does that, similar to Floyd, I don't care how long he is here, I just plan on enjoying the ride and know that JP would do another good job hiring if that situation were to occur.
