If the coach wasn't doing very well and left, I wouldn't care. Kind of unusual for that though although Kingsbury was pretty marginal at Tech and got the NFL gig.True Story: Shortly after Tim Floyd took the Bulls job, I was at O'Hare waiting to board a flight. I had a lady in front of me see my Iowa State polo shirt and ask if I was excited about that! lol. You should have seen the glare on my face! I have no idea why anybody would be happy about a coach of their favorite College Team (especially if you are an Alum like I am) would leave for a Pro Team. None! That being said, Matt Campbell is a grown man and does not have to answer to me. He can do what he likes and good for him. However, I will NOT like it if it happens.
That is a GREAT point! I was thrilled when BOTH Chizik left for Auburn and McDermott left for Creighton. I didn't care for either of those guys.If the coach wasn't doing very well and left, I wouldn't care.

More talking about not dong well and leaving for pro gigs...that doesn't seem to happen very often, especially for a head coaching job.That is a GREAT point! I was thrilled when BOTH Chizik left for Auburn and McDermott left for Creighton. I didn't care for either of those guys.
Campbell might be the only coach that could turn around the cowboys but heeeeeeck noWould the only time you would accept Campbell leaving, would it be if he accepted a head coaching job at your favorite NFL team? That includes people who are fans of already stable nfl teams. So it could include the Packers, Bears, Saints etc.. doesn’t have to be a team that needs a HC currently.
Chicago has already met it's quota of ISU coaches, no matter the sport. They are done.I’m torn. I think his personality would be good in Chicago if given some gm duties and time to turn things around but I don’t think people would give him enough time to make the necessary changes (nor do I think many of the nfl franchises would).
