    What kind of coach do you want

    I think about three categories when I look at any of the candidates.

    1. Where they come from.
    a. Been a head coach someplace big, NFL or big college program, and now need a job. (ie Coker, Sherman)
    b. A top coordinator at a big school. (ie Pelini, Chizek)
    c. An assistant that has been around some and now probably in the NFL. (ie Brewster, Loney)
    d. A head coach at a smaller school than Iowa State. (ie Kelly, Harbaugh)

    2. How strong are they in these three disciplines.
    a. Recruiting
    b. Charismatic, administrator, face of the program
    c. Coaching, schemes and player development

    3. Are they either an
    a. Offensive mind
    b. Defensive mind

    This is just my two cents worth, on 1 I lean toward C because they know a lot of people and have been around some good coaches, see Ferentz, but this is the least important category for me, any of these could produce the right fit. On 2 the most important for me is B, the most successful coaches seem to always have good people around them and are good administrators. On 3 I think offensive minds make better head coaches, just seem to have better game management.

    A proven winner is all I want. Everything else will take care of itself if the coach can win.

    Re: What kind of coach do you want

    I cannot pigeonhole the coach with ant of those traits. On one, I would lean towards big name, regardless of NFL or College experience.

    On the others, I would want a well rounded coach to come in. All aspects are equally important. Good Post though!
