    Really sucks, but if he is going to be the D coordinator you can't blame him. Wish him well.

    This is a done deal.

    I think we should look at Atif Austin to replace him. I think when you have former Cyclones who are promising coaches, we NEED to get them to Ames when we get a chance. They could be incredibly effective recruiters, understanding exactly what it's like to be a student athlete here.

    Their DC didn't leave, so I doubt it will be as the DC.

    Atif would be a good choice I think. I know someone who worked in the AD at UNI and really liked Atif.

    It is likely a more money, greater responsibility, DC in waiting type move.

    That said, I am curious who we will snag. Hard to argue with Al's logic about Atif Austin.

    Wisky plays good D, great college town, and good experience for him. Hopefully, we match and he stays. I am sure CPR, and Wally will get someone good.

    Is he going to be the DC for Wisco then? If so, I can't blame him.

    I am glad he pulled in such a good class for us this year.

    I dont think this is as pivotal as some may think. Chris is awesome and I have no hard feeling towards him for leaving. Im confident that PR has something in mind. I doubt Chris just up and left. This most likely has already been discussed.

    By the way, for those of you saying yesterday was a "bad day" and we lost some "valuable recruits" this is a much, much bigger loss. We can and will replace him but Ash has done great things everywhere he has went and has a proven track record. Unlike any 18 year old that may or may not sign with us.

    So what position would he be taking with Wisconsin?

    Classy move by Ash. I have no problem with a coach moving on. He did it right and waited until recruiting was over. I have no problem
