Kansas State: Source tells FootballScoop Akron running backs coach Eric Hickson is expected to join the Kansas State staff. Hickson, the all-time rushing leader at K-State, has been at Akron since the 2015 season. He previously coached running backs and served as recruiting coordinator at Garden City and as OC and then head coach at Emmerich Manual High School (IN).

That depends entirely on who we bring in to replace him. He was obviously doing something right.

 

He had to have one of the hardest jobs on the coaching staff, constantly losing his best players to injury.

Kansas State is a time bomb right now with Bill Snyder trying to make his son the new head coach, even though the AD already contracted with someone to become the head coach when Snyder retires.  It is an ugly power struggle.  We can't wait for Snyder (the vampire who appears once per year to such Cyclone blood) to retire.  He was won so many close games in so many freaky ways against us!  Taking a job at Kansas State right now if rolling the dice on what will happen next, though Hickson is probably more safe than anyone else no matter what happens.

That's what I was thinking. Always having to rely on our #2, 3 or 4 guy every year. I hope we find a great replacement and I hope our top RB's stay healthy during the upcoming seasons.

Not to change the subject, and congrats to Hickson on taking a job with his alma mater, but what does the list of schools look like that are trying to steal away Milwee? How can I help them become successful in doing so?

Yes, do you know of anyone looking for an offensive coordinator? I know a stellar one. He loves delayed draws. 

 

Just having a little fun. :wave:

I always wondered about Ricky Powers as a college assistant coach. He surely would have the gravitas in NE Ohio to recruit.

Why would Powers leave Buchtel?

Really; they have a contract with the next head coach!

Not that everything you say is above reproach - SOURCE?

What makes Hickson more safe - SOURCE?

Its messy.  As I look back at the articles, I see reference to "verbal agreement" between the AD and his candidate for head coach.  But it was well-known, which is why Bill Snyder could intervene and block it.
