I am afraid the South Carolina game, which at this point meant nothing but a payday, put Akron a step behind.

I do believe the decision to let TB go was already decided before the South Carolina game, but I have been wrong before.  And if I'm wrong, then the SC game meant everything in cementing the change of coaches.

While disappointed that I was passed over, I am hopeful for Arth.  At this point, I am in "wait and see" mode.  I am concerned with the following sentence in one of the articles above-  "Akron was the last opening at the FBS level in the 2018-19 coaching cycle as of this writing."

I would go further and say LW's not firing Bowden after the Cherry Bowl put us a MILE behind.

How?  Other than it being the same time last year.

The decision may have been made but the game delayed them from moving forward while other teams were already on the hunt

Way down on the list in my opinion.  Hopefully, he's one of five or six applying.  What's the difference between division 2 and 3 football?  

Most division II guys are two stars, most division III guys aren't.

Seems like Williams had pretty much made up his mind. Looks like he wanted a guy with NFL experience. Wanted somebody who was familiar with this part of the country. And wanted somebody UofA could afford. He gets 5 years. Has to be over .500 in the MAC.

You get a decent amount of kids who were academic non-qualifiers for Div I, at the DII level. At D3, you often get kids who are academic all stars but not football all stars.

Getsy sure gets around. Couldn't imagine hiring him (assuming he was even interested/we could afford him) only to have him leave right now.

Wouldn't that be great. I think coach Bowden/Amato/Stroud/others leave the team in decent shape, so it's a possibility. I'm sure some will fail to recall this eventually, but not me. The next coach will step into a potential winner day one. That was not possible six years ago. 

 

I hope the next coach is good at recruiting top MAC talent. If someone can tell me who that is, I'll throw my support behind that candidate. Otherwise, I can't pretend to know if any name mentioned in this thread would succeed. I don't know much about hiring an FBS head coach, but I would certainly give coach Stroud an interview, if he wanted it. Whomever the new coaches are, I'm intrigued to watch a new offense next season. 

 

Coach Stroud is headed to Coral Gables with Manny Diaz at the U. Diaz worked with Stroud in Raleigh. Coach Stroud, developed a number of notable players. Back in 2006 when he was at NC State, three of Stroud's linemen– Mario Williams, Manny Lawson, and John McCargo – were first round selections in the NFL Draft.

 

I wish him all the success in the world. One of the top two football minds that I have had the pleasure of knowing, and talking football with at Akron. I visit the Miami area often, and now have a good reason to see a game there.

Someone on here was advocating talking to this coach as a possible candidate, PJ Fleck landed him on his staff

That was me. I thought if we were looking for someone up and coming that this guy certainly fit the bill. No real Ohio or western PA connections as far as I know but he really seems to get the most out of his players. Plus if you can recruit to Maine I would guess you could recruit to Akron. Arth may end up being a great hire and the best candidate the Zips could have gotten. I don't know. I just would have liked to see Harasymiak contacted or interviewed.

Charlie Frye is the QB/OC coach at CMU. Amazing two staffs missed out on a chance to bring him here.

I was not a proponent for hiring Kehres but some of you where.  Some said he would never leave Mount Union. Looks like he probably was open to moving on

Seems like D-III is a lot more competitive now than when his Pop was running Mount's program. They aren't the juggernaut they used to be.

Spitballing here but perhaps he had feedback on his D-1 coaching prospects that it would be beneficial to help on a D-1 staff before making the jump to HC at an FBS school

I forget where I heard/read this (Joe Dunn?), but word on the street was he applied for both the KSUcks job and the Akron gig and got neither.  He needed at least a little experience at a higher level.  Idk.  I was pulling for him to get the Akron gig.  (Not that I'm bitter about it; I'm an Arth fan now.)  Go Zips.

I'm surprised to see he left for anything less than a head coaching job.

 

I'm surprised to see he left for any non-MUU job. Larry must be rolling over in his grave.

That is one shallow grave my friend...Larry is AD through June.
