    Does anyone think that they will be kept on as OL coach and LB coach to help smooth the transition? I hope they keep McF I really think he is a good OL coach and the player really like Bolt.

    We need an OC and a DC.

    If we can keep them on at their current positions and the players like them, then I hope so!

    I doubt that he will keep any current staff. Most times, the new coach brings in his own staff.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Steve Loney come on. McFarland would be good to keep as well.

    I look for Rhoads to open things up and interview the current coaches and decide if he wants to keep them or not. Remember that a HC job is kind of like the President in that he prefers to have his own people in place. There is this loyalty thing and personality thing, etc. Chizik may be taking a lot of our ISU assistants to Auburn with him (we hope). They are all pretty much Auburn type guys and you got the sense that Chizik was hoping to create an Auburn North type of atmosphere. The assistants were all Southern transplants.

    I would like to see him bring Tony Peterson back. Austen did progress throughout the year and it seemed that he had a special bond with him. I had heard that he was extremely upset when The Chiz let him go.

    I'd be happy if he kept McFarland as o-line coach.

    Funny thing under Chizik was our defense could stop nobody. Our offense has a lot of young returning firepower. I'm guessing that Chizik won't retain any of the former assistants at Auburn? If not, who would be a good get for us?

    Well, James Willis, (LB), for one, but we're hoping to keep him. BTW, I added to my above post.

    First and foremost is to get a S&C guy in here.

    Tony Peterson and McFarland would be two assistants I'd like to keep here. I thought McFarland did a great job with the OL considering what we had.

    James Willis looks like he is one of their main recruiters.

    I would be very happy if Rhoads held onto Coach Shep.
