    Will Chizik now go after our Assistants?

    Chizik has about 7 openings to fill at Auburn. There's speculation that he'll go after some of his od assistants. My questions is, will our athletic department allow them to even talk if the positions are lateral? And as a follow up, since Bolt and McFarland are not DC & OC, could they talk to Auburn about those positions?

    I can't see the fans at Auburn accepting guys he just demoted at ISU.

    I hope they take Bolt and McFarland, because I don't think they're hanging around with a new coach anyways.

    at the same time, Chizik will not get to really pick his staff. The Auburn AD will.

    Does it matter? Our next coach will probably want his own guys so no point of any of Chizik's former assistants waiting around to see if they can stick around if Gene offers them a job.

    I say let them stay if they want to try. Mcfarland did land us at least one recruit from what I have heard and that means they are still doing their job.

    I hope that Chizzy does take all of his old assistants. The only people that would be sad about this are the restaurant owners in Ames.

    Let's hope thier still doing their jobs. They are still getting paychecks, I assume. Good ones, I might add.

    Re: Will Chizik now go after our Assistants?

    Yeah, I'm thinking his staff is feeling a little abondoned as well. I think McFarland would be a nice holdover. I haven't read all the threads- what about keeping the team chaplain & conditioning coach?

    Re: Will Chizik now go after our Assistants?

    Of course they are doing their jobs. They probably want to continue coaching. You gotta be professional. Another thing is the a main selling point about coaching at ISU is that you get to pick your staff. I would assume Pollard will essentially allow the new coach to make appropriate staffing decisions.

    Better question is do we want his old assistants?

    Re: Will Chizik now go after our Assistants?

    Yeah they should still be working but I have seen some in this situation not work. Just stop recruiting.

    Re: Will Chizik now go after our Assistants?

    I used to think of the assistant coaches as Chiz's buddies who were brought in totally under qualified and only because they were his buddies. Then McFarland had enough integrity to continue recruiting despite the fact that Chizik was walking out the back door.

    I don't think our assistants are strong enough to get hired at Auburn, I questioned if they were strong enough for us with the salaries we paid them. After the problems the Auburn fanbase had with Chiz getting hired they would go balistic if he hired the same staff that went 5-19 with him and didn't have the previous resumes chiz did.

    Now that McFarland went out and got a recruit given the circumstances I feel like I've given the assistants a bad rap. They may not be as amazing as I hoped for initially, but at least as far as McFarland goes it looks like he may actually have the integrity I thought Chiz had. They seem like they actually care about the Cyclone family and the players we have on our team, from that one action McFarland has gained a whole lot of my respect, and I know our guys like Bolt. I'd hope our next coach at least gives a look at keeping them on in some roll even if not a major one.

    Re: Will Chizik now go after our Assistants?

    Didn't someone say that when Chizik "met" with the team on Sunday, that both some players and assistants were yelling at him on his way out?

    Money talks, but I'm not sure there are many guys that are happy with the guy right now.

    Yeah, that was in there. Money can only say so much for some people, and that's a good thing.
