Sounds like this deal is imminent. According to Pete Thamel, all candidates including Leonard have been told they are not getting the job.
That's interesting and surprising. I think Leonhard thought he had it but the team didn't look much, if any, better when he took over for Chryst.
Fickell recruits really well. Seems like a good hire. Time will tell.
This is the correct answer.Of course the team didn't look any better when Leonhard took over. Chryst is a great coach who fell upon a few shit classes at o-line. You don't usually get better when you rage fire a legend.
Paul Christ has not been hired by anyone right? So Kirk could still theatrically call him to replace his idiot son......but then again Mars has a better chance of being inhabitable compared to that.
After shave cologne is out.I sit here and think we get to see our opponents have shiny new toys.....and we continue to apply Brut Cologne....or Old Spice. Could be worse though, we could have another Steve Alfraud come through the door....even the football version.
The big brain move is for Kirk to ride off into the sunset if Barta can get Chryst.The big brain move would be to bring in Chryst as Co-OC and QB coach, promote Brian to Co-OC, Run Game Coordinator, O-Line Coach, and fire the current o-line coach.
Whatever is going to be done has to be done in a manner that (a) does not publicly humiliate Brian and (b) allows Kirk Ferentz to save face. Think of the presser now.
"I'm excited to announce that Brian Ferentz is receiving a large promotion, blah blah blah, we all remember how great 2015 was when Brian was run game coordinator and line coach and we think this will bring back the spark blah blah blah."
