    Robert McFarland, possible candidate?

    What about McFarland as a candidate? I don't think he has been mentioned yet. Hopefully at least, he gets an interview. The man is already here and seems to be providing some loyalty by still recruiting to the team. He has had some head coaching experience unlike our previous coach (last week's coach).

    In any case, if he doesn't get included, I don't want to lose him, I think he is a great positive for the team. The offense got better as the season went, and I am guessing he was involved with some of the great players that have been recruited in the last two years. He could be our version of Mangino, in more ways than one.

    No......


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Robert McFarland, possible candidate?

    He just got canned as the o-coordinator... well "demoted"... I doubt he gets a call... not really the "splash" that JP is looking for...

    Those recruiting gains came from before gene left. I highly doubt Pollard is allowing any of the coaches to continue to hand out scholarships.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Maybe if 287 other candidates turn us down...then maybe.

    The reason he and the coaches are still there is due to the fact that it's unknown what will happen to them when we find a new coach. Also, as anyone else would do, you're going to keep contact with a person, and if they are choosing a school specifically for a certain coach -- they may end up following a coach to a different school.

    I do agree with the no way jose and everything.

    If BVD was still here, I might say McFarland had a chance (see Wayne Morgan)

    Re: Robert McFarland, possible candidate?

    I think he has a chance to keep a job on the team. Certainly not as head coach though.

    That is the thread this has already been hashed over in. There is no way he is our Head Coach. I would doubt he would even be the Coordinator, since he was just stripped of that job last week.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Sorry, I missed the previous discussion, wouldn't have posted it if I knew, this coaching thing is moving fast.

    I am surprised by his demotion. But since Gene is gone, something else was going on.

    I am impressed with the offense line coaching he has done compared to Barney, I guess that wasn't too hard to do.
