Re: Pelini

Nebraska is banking on him finding a good paying job to help offset the $7.5 million he is owed by the Huskers. What better way to get back at Nebraska than coming here and getting paid $250k a year, forcing Nebraska to pay him substantially all of that amount.

Back to reality, this will never happen. Hope we hear some credible names this week.

Leopoldo built the program from ground up. The WSCAA is considered 2nd best behind the Ohio Athltic Conference in D-3. That should be Leipold,lol. No longer young and does not have the type of recruiting experience needed for this level. Successful coach but you wonder how lacking he is for this level.School located not far from Chicago, Milwaukee and othe metro areas providing parochial big H. S. Programs to recruit for a D-3 program.

Wisconsin-Whitewater head coach Lance Leipold will be the next head coach at Buffalo, FootballScoop has learned.

Leipold has served as a graduate a$$istant at Wisconsin and an a$$istant at Nebraska, but made his name racking up a historic run of success over the past eight years at Whitewater, where he is 106-6 with five Division III national championships. The Warhawks have posted four 15-0 seasons under Leipold, including one in 2013, and are currently in the midst of a 29-game winning streak. He also posted a 46-game winning streak from 2009-12.

Not sure a D3 resume will translate well at a FBS program.

I would think tomorrow the scoop sites should start reporting some names we are targeting.

This will be a living example of why D-III coaches are rarely hired into D-I HC jobs. Recruiting, recruiting, recruiting.  And the X's and O's get a little tougher to do. Watch Buffalo over the next few years.

I felt that a jump from d3 to 1-aa was a stretch, now he goes to the "big boys" well at least the mac. Time will tell but I will be surprised if it works out.

Article says Fickell may be next YSU FB HC........in 2008.

If we can go faster than the speed of light for awhile and get back to 2008 I say give Fickell a try but for 2015 I say no thanks.Don't really know any good suggestions for a new coach but I definitely think Wright is Wrong and if they hire him there will only be 999 in the stands next year.

Fickell was an unmitigated disaster as head coach and it doing a terrible job as D-coordinator.  D was Wolford's downfall, what possible interest could anyone have in Luke?

To be fair, Fickell got thrown into the fire as HC due to the Tress disaster...

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- After a season of speculation about whether he would lose his job, Illinois coach Tim Beckman will be back for 2015, athletic director Mike Thomas said Sunday.

Too bad. This is one high-profile coach that I thought we had a real shot at. Reasonably local, probably has a no-compete preventing him from taking a MAC school.

The best choice, in my opinion is DJ Durkin. Long shot, yes but that would be my #1 choice. Once Florida hires a new HC, he will be in need of some new work..... Just saying.
