    McCarney Candidate at USF

    USF fired Jim Leavitt and sounds like Mac is a possible replacement. I think this would be a great hire especially after getting some Florida exposure the past several years. Good luck Mac!!!

    Re: McCarney Candidate at USF

    McCarney's agent has obviously immediately floated his name out there as a candidate. I doubt he will even get an interview. Mac just got passed over at UF for a coordinator's position and interviewed and was not hired at Northern Illinois a couple of years ago.

    It's obvious we all want the best for Mac. He's paid his dues and now has a national title shot every year at florida. Why would he leave that??

    Maybe so he could have the chance to compete for championships as a head coach, instead of a D-line coach.

    Re: McCarney Candidate at USF

    I gotta believe USF would be somewhat of a dream job for him. Gets to live in a part of the country he loves and he'd be back in a BCS conference. I hope he gets it.

    I doubt they would come after him, knowing that he's only going to be coaching a few more years. Not sure how old Wally is, but it's got go be up there.

    Re: McCarney Candidate at USF

    Is Mac getting to the point where his age is beginning to work against him?

    Yup. USF has reached, even arguably surpassed anywhere that Dan got with ISU. They view themselves as an up and comer/potential powerhouse, and rightfully so. I think they look for a little more of a splash, a little more of a proven winner. Dan is a great builder, but the foundation is laid at USF, they're looking to go over the hump, and Dan's inability to do that is the reason he's not here at ISU. He would have been great there 10 years ago, but right now, I just see them going a different direction.

    Re: McCarney Candidate at USF

    One reason I would not want him to get the job is because im sure one of his targets for his DC position would be Chris Ash and I don't want to lose him.
