IMHO, Withers has left the program in a better spot then where he found it.

Whether he ran players off or they quit, those kids didn't want to play football. I know he wasn't easy on em' from talking to a players dad. He was old school, but it's football. We weren't going to get where we wanted to go (bowl games and conference championships) with the kids that left.

Somebody is going have a decent gig following him as HC. 11th youngest team and tough as nails on defense. If the oline progresses we will be good offensively as well. Sucks for Wither's that he will leave and somebody will sweep in and use the foundation he laid to benefit their carear. Hopefully, the situation allows us to pick up a good one with up and coming assistants.



We got there. Twice. We were just left out based on attendance and NCAA politics.

We were left out because our AD thought we could sit around and wait for bowls to call us. Attendance was good in those years too. Better than the other sun belt teams that got in over us.

I agree. I think we have enough talent now to be kore successful than we've been lately. Just need to hit juco heavy for immediate help on the oline.

Winner, winner! Chicken Dinner!

7-5 year on Teis.
6-6 year Fran shit the bed against a very beatable Troy team.

Those teams left doubt. Leave no doubt.

Had forgotten Longo was at sam when they had great offenses. Texas ties, great offensive mind, QB coach, sounds like a decent enough hire. His salary is currently 700k it looks like.


At that current salary he will “ not be interested” in our possible offer.

We have a second chance to aggressively pursue John Grass.

He didn't inherit a winning program. He turned it around and did things his predecessors had never done.

John Grass begins his fifth season as head coach of the Gamecocks and his sixth season at JSU after what has been an unprecedented five years in his profession.

Grass served as the Gamecocks’ assistant head coach and offensive coordinator in 2013 and orchestrated an offense that set numerous school, OVC and National records before taking the reigns as the head coach for the 2014 season.

Since then, he has taken JSU on a run not many have seen before. His 43-8 record over four seasons is the best start to a tenure in JSU history, while his 23-3 record heading into the 2016 FCS Division I Championship Game tied for the best 26-game start to a career in FCS history. In four years, he has been named the AFCA’s Region Coach of the Year four times and the Ohio Valley Conference Roy Kidd Coach of the Year three times and was the AFCA’s National Coach of the Year in 2015.

He is a perfect 31-0 in Ohio Valley Conference play with four OVC titles over the past four seasons and enters the 2018 season with the longest active conference win streak in all of Division I football at 32 games. The streak is the longest in OVC history and the second-longest in FCS history.

He has had 15 All-Americans and 70 All-OVC performers in his four seasons as the head coach, while 16 Gamecocks have moved on to opportunities in the NFL in that same span.

That first season as a collegiate head coach in 2014 saw him take JSU to a 10-2 record and as high as No. 2 in the national polls, thanks to a perfect 8-0 mark in league play and the Gamecocks’ first outright Ohio Valley Conference title since 2004.

Year number two was better, seeing the Gamecocks post a 13-2 record that included their first-ever trip to the FCS National Championship Game in Frisco, Texas. JSU catapulted into the No. 1 spot in the STATS polls, its first No. 1 ranking in school history, after falling in overtime at No. 6 Auburn in week two and would hold that spot until falling to North Dakota State in the title game.

The next two seasons each saw him take the Gamecocks to 10-2 records and unbeaten OVC marks en route to their third- and fourth-straight conference titles. Grass is the first coach in league history to go unbeaten in league play in his first two seasons, and has increased that to four entering 2018.

A program that had never seen a 5,000-yard season in over 100 years of tradition, the three seasons under Grass’ offensive mind saw the Gamecock offense amass over 6,000 yards of total offense in his first four and over 7,000 in 2015. His offense has rewritten the JSU record books and set a new standard for production on that side of the football.

I posted a little while ago that we need a “proven winner”! This program is in serious trouble! Hiring a Coordinator for our current needs makes NO sense. Being a HC requires a different skill set. We need a leader who can handle the day to day, set the vision and culture, and is prepared for the daily challenges of being the HC. We want a highly successful FCS HC. Definitely not a “been to a Power 5 and got canned guy”. We don’t have Power 5 perks here. We need someone who has made a living doing more with less… a guy who has had to recruit against DI but from the disadvantage of being at FCS. DII coaches don’t make sense either… their recruiting is so much different.

With all that said… here is my top picks:

1. Chris Kleinman – North Dakota State – 65-6, 3 National Championships, going for his 4th in 2018. He has a system in place that works. He needs to make the move up eventually and I don’t think he gets a P5 from NDSU. No Texas ties, but you can’t pass on him.
2. Mike Houston- James Madison – 79-24, 1 National Championship, has won everywhere he has been (Lenoir-Rhyne, Citadel, JMU). I’m not discounting him because our last coach was from JMU (Wither’s took over a gold mine at JMU and did just OK for 2 yrs before coming here. He was not a “proven” HC when we hired him) Houston has no Texas ties, but again, a proven winner.
3. KC Keeler – Sam Houston State – 226-90, 1 National Championship, has won everywhere he has been (Rowan College, University of Delaware, SHSU). 52 wins in 5 yrs at SHSU, 4 playoff appearances, 3 final fours and 1 elite eight. Doing some research on their status this year… looks like they were riddled with injuries, they lost 3 of their 4 preseason All-Americans, then 3 starting OLman by halftime of game 2; then lost 2 more OLman for most of the rest of the season. He has Texas ties, and is a proven winner.
4. John Grass- Jacksonville State - 51-10 - could be a contender but has been knocked out of the playoffs early when favored 3 of the last 4 years. Played for 1 National Championship, very good offensive mind. Winner in High School and College. No Texas ties.
5. Mike Schultz – Lamar; Eric Morris – Incarnate Word – Like them, but not enough experience as a proven HC.

We need someone with charisma, that has proven to be a winner, and build a program! I think Kerwin Bell is the perfect fit here! He has played in the SEC and at the highest level. He built Jacksonville university Into a conference championship winning program. Since he left Jacksonville they have went down significantly. 2-8 record this season! In his 3rd season at Valdosta State he’s 10 and 0 and conference champions with a bunch of freshman and sophomores! They broke many records nationally and in the conference! First time Valdosta State has been undefeated since 2004. They are averaging a nations Best 52 points per game! That’s unbelievable and Haven’t scored under 44 points in any game! Defense is aggressive with 5 defensive touchdowns and tops in other categories! The guy is a winner and knows how to build a championship program! He’s hungry and his teams are a lot of fun to watch! He is a great recruiter he loves to take a program like ours and build it into a conference contender!
Coaches that have been successful at Valdosta State- mike leach, Dana halgorson, Kirby smart, will muschamp etc Kerwin Bell is perfect for what we are trying to accomplish here! FYI his Quarterbacks have 51 Total touchdowns and only 6 turnovers! The man can coach! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmT6L6ANbjQ

Prefer someone with ties to Texas. Namely Texas High School coaches.

And by that I mean good, positive, respectful relationships with TX HS coaches. Must have college level coaching experience and success.

Your next head coach should be Todd Graham...From Texas, built a dominate Allen High.
Success in college. He was a 4 million a year coach at ASU..
He won there but lost his last few years because of injuries where he was playing with a third and fourth string QB...In his last year beat 11 ranked Oregon, 4th ranked Washington, top 20 ranked Arizona.
ASU AD was friends with Herm and created a place to get Herm back into college..

He would be the best guy you could possibly get...He would have to win many years to get back to power 5 and at his age Texas State may be where he finishes and stays...

Todd Graham would be an excellent hire, but doubt he'd take the job. He's going to land a P5 position.

That said, I am an ASU alum as well, and I was surprised to see him leave after last year. Admittedly, I do not follow that program as closely as this one.
