Well at least we wouldn't really fight him for recruits.
Noooooooooooo! I like him. We want to keep him around as long as we can. I think him and CFH makes a great team.
Doc has a lot of control over the defense here at ISU and Fred is an offensive mastermind. They're a great combo. Plus Doc hasn't done a ton of recruiting either (as far as I know). And he's getting paid fairly well, I assume.
I would wait if I were him. That job is an up hill fight. He will be up for bigger better jobs down the road.
That would be a great landing spot for him -- they've really got it going.
Because he wants to be a head coach?
Not surprising, Doc is a well respected coach and with all the success ISU had this season, he will be a candidate for many HC jobs. If he takes it I wish him well.
IMO, losing Doc would be about as big as losing any current player. The guy is replaceable, but his help on the defensive side of the ball has been huge this season. I think he helped instill a sense of toughness into the team too.
Hey, whose side are you on!
Seriously though, I would not be mad if he left for a HC job, hate to lose him though. I really like having his coaching ability on staff.
Not as much of an uphill fight as Nebraska was in my opinion.
I don't thing losing him would be thg big of deal. Hoiberg I am sure learned from him an knew he wasn't going to be here for too long. I they could replace him with a really good recruiter I would take that trade in a heartbeat.
I just hope he doesn't go to a b 12 school. His defensive mastermind and he would know our offense
Last two coaches at Southern Miss took better jobs...so it certainly isn't a graveyard for coaches.
This. Doc is a way better coach than that. And one that doesn't need the second chance other coaches have needed (cough, cough).
Plus - no disrespect to Southern Miss, but Doc has already put his time in and paid his dues in the bball purgatory that is Nebraska (disrespect intended)
And yes - this is said with the full blinders that I want him on our bench.
Like most, I sure hope he stays, but wish him the best if he takes a HC job. He's been great with Freddy and the team.
I can't remember where it was from, but I remember a video of Doc being interviewed and actually talking about future possibilities. I think it might have been a Coach Fred Hoiberg Show episode. I don't remember his words exactly but they were something along the lines of that he really likes being at ISU and working beside CFH. As for future head coaching possibilities, he said that he is at the point in his career where there really is only a few select head coaching opportunities that he would consider, and if not, he said he could easily see himself finishing out his career at ISU. Therefore, I see the question more as whether the SMU job would be one of those select opportunities he was talking about. My guess would be no, but who knows?
Our offense will likely look different next year w/o having Kane to go through. Plus Fred's offense revolves around in-game match-ups which I'm sure if they ended up coaching against each other, Fred could draw up some plays that'll work. It's only a matter of time before Doc moves on to another HC job. He definitely has the ability. Hopefully we won't see it happen in the near future.
In today's climate any coach that is fired will need a "second chance" to prove themselves. Their is a reason they were let go in the first place, regardless of the reason being personal or if it was just a matter of not winning enough. What "better job" will there be for Doc than Southern Miss? Lots of competition for head coaching positions. Being fired at previous gigs can make it a tough sell for the new school as they introduce their new coach.
I love having Doc here...but if he wants to be a head coach...Southern Miss is about the right spot for him and then he can move up from there.
Doc is a good coach, don't get me wrong, but if you think he is above So. Miss as a head coach than you are wrong. If he wants to be a head coach again it would be a good move. I would miss him as an assistant, but So. Miss would gain a new fan.
