    Mike Yurcich from Oklahoma State? Might be a solid hire. Okie State had great offenses under him 2013-2018, and averaged just under 500 yds per game this season. Plus, he just left the program. Rumors have him going to Tennessee.

    We really need to open the checkbook for a proven successful P5 OC, and that might cost $1M or more.

    Maybe Kyle can show his commitment to the program and pitch in $500k of it.

    Kyle would never hire him.

    Why not? Kyle just tried to hire rich rod. He seems open to anything.

    Historically it seems to me that Kyle has hired offensive coordinators he felt comfortable with, in the sense that they would not buck him. (This is not a dig at Kyle, I think most head coaches want that.) Now...if he really was serious about Rich Rod, then that would be a departure from that pattern, so your point is very intriguing. I don’t believe he would hire a hot shot from Oklahoma State, but I am prepared to be surprised and delighted.

    This guy is rumored to be leaving the OC gig at Okie St. to be the QB coach at Ohio St.

    With the Taylor hire and with the rich rod pursuit, I think Kyle has shown a willingness to do whatever it takes for the offense.

    I think he'd hire a hot shot oc without hesitation. The problem is that there aren't many hot shot ocs out there.

    I am sort of skeptical about the Rich Rod story. Sounds like the kind of thing an agent puts out to increase his leverage and bargaining power. Who knows.

    Kyle makes some interesting remarks at the end of this interview with Bill after the game (RE: the OC position): https://espn700sports.com/news/utah-...game-12-31-18/

    Bill flat out asks him how important experience/having a proven play caller is, and Kyle essentially says it is paramount. To me that disqualifies Harding, and perhaps lends some credibility to the RichRod rumor. Ultimately we'll see who he gets, but it is certainly interesting.
    “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Maybe this means he learned something from the Brian Johnson hire?

    I agree. The only group nearly as gullible to an agent's breathless blatherings about his client than athletic directors are sportswriters. Not buying it.

    You're 100 percent certain Harding doesn't have any experience in calling plays?

    I am 100 percent certain that Kyle knows his window is closing.

    He's not going to coach forever, and he knows he's got a chance to win the league, particularly with USC bringing back Helton. We've got some talented WRs and TEs coming back next year, and a decent battle at QB (potentially). So yeah, I think he's going to look past Jim Harding and his vast play calling experience with A-Rod to see if he can get a guy in here who can run the spread with a dynamic QB and a power backs. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I certainly don't think Harding is plan a, b, c, or d.

    why would Bronco agree to this? Was he on his way out at UVA?


    John. @JohnMoretti5
    Sources: WVU and Bronco Mendenhall have agreed to a 4 year $10.5 million contract. Expect an official announcement tomorrow at Noon. #HailWV #WVU

    WVU is the better job, right? But why would WVU agree to this? This is a complete 180 for them in terms of identity.

    Look at that guys profile. He has around 100 followers and most of his tweets are gibberish. He's a troll.

    You may be on to something here. It’s easy to see how Kyle could be thinking that way. To the extent he reaches out to others for advice (like Urban) maybe they’re telling him it’s time to stretch.

    New hire #2 has been announced to fill the Linebacker coaching replacement for Justin Ena. I don't know anything about Swan but it is does have me adjusting down my OC replacement expectations.

    Some background on Swan:


  21. #51
    The dude went to Weber State on a rodeo scholarship! That is pretty cool.

    “The Jerome, Idaho, native initially came to Weber State on a rodeo scholarship, but walked on to the football team and was awarded a football scholarship the next year. He made the Big Sky Academic All-Conference team three seasons.”

    A family member of mine knows Swan. Says he a great dude and will be a great addition to the staff. I trust my family member so........ That's all I got.

    I watch more Big Sky football than I am comfortable admitting.
    Weber's defense has been really good the last couple of years.
