    Coordinator Predictions

    I predict the new OC and DC will both be.....















































    ...people we've never heard of.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    I will probably get kicked off cyclonefanatic for being this stupid...but I never heard of Gene Chizik until we hired him.

    Most of the board will never admit it now, but most of us had never heard of the guy either. He had only been at Texas for 2 years and his name had never been in the news as a candidate for other jobs, at least the way other coordinators like Muschamp and Venables have been.

    Re: Coordinator Predictions

    And because we hadn't heard of him... and may not have heard of people who haven't even been interviewed for open positions it means that we should re-hire Dan McCarney to coach our football program... right?

    Do I need the sarcasm pirate for this post... or did I lay it on thick enough?

    Re: Coordinator Predictions

    Seriously?? The opinion is most of us had probably never heard of Chizik before he came to ISU? Doesn't anybody pay attention to CFB in any other parts of the country? I knew who Chizik was when he was at Auburn. Yeah, I had a few tonite while watching the UNI game...so I'm probably overreacting. But still, I find that hard to believe.

    Re: Coordinator Predictions

    Well Paul Rhoades is available however I don't think he will be able to sign another contract since he was supposed to be under contract through next year with Auburn.

    Re: Coordinator Predictions

    That's surprising people didn't know Chizik. I knew who he was at Auburn and followed him while at Texas

    Dude, my bad...I dont follow teams I could care less about close enough to know who their coordinators are. How about you just cool out...everyone just cool out. Chalk another one up for not knowing who Chizik was.

    Re: Coordinator Predictions

    I can see why some people wouldn't necessarily know who Chizik was prior to coming here. I didn't expect to see this many people that didn't know who he was, but I can understand it. I knew about him while at Auburn. His defense was stellar down there and when he went to Texas I followed him even more. I considered him our top prospect for head coach when we conducted our search, but figured he was far too prestigous for an Iowa State program. I was stoked when we landed him.

    As for OC and DC spots. I wouldn't be surprised to see a bigger name for OC (either an up and coming coach or an established coach). There's quite a few names circulating through rumors at this point so it's hard to tell. We should find out pretty shortly though. I would consider this search a major priority in the midst of recruiting so they should be wrapping it up quickly.

    Re: Coordinator Predictions

    I knew Chizik before I didn't know who he was. I too believe the next DC and OC will be people who some of us have never heard of....some will have.
