    I like the Auburn fan that says Paul Rhoads deserted Auburn. Really?

    Right - HCs like their own staff - he probably would have been out of a job anyway.

    I get the feeling some wanted Rhoads to stay on at Auburn. At Pitt, the head coach left and the new coach (Dave W) kept Rhoads as his defensive coordinator even though Rhoads was one of the finalists for that HC position too. He must be very well respected within the coaching ranks.

    "In my two face-to-face meetings with Paul this week, it was obvious that his enthusiasm, energy and warm personality would be well-received by our players, fans and university community," Pollard said. "He has a presence with a 'look-you-in-the-eye' style that makes you feel comfortable."

    I wonder why he didn't pick up on the 'look-you-in-eye" thing with Chizik.

    Perhaps the old inexperience bug took control on the Chizik hire? I don't think he had to do much head coach recruiting at Wisconsin.... Just a thought and I am sure somebody will tell me if I am wrong. :smile:
