It is that time of year again and we just saw a significant coaching change with Pat Popolizio leaving Binghamton and taking the head position at North Carolina State. This obviously leaves a head position open at Binghamton. There is also a head coaching position open at Duke which is a place that could do well with the right coach. Who do you think will end up as head coaches at those schools? Are there any other schools where you think there should be a coaching change this off season?
Barry Davis and Kevin Jackson. The athletes aren't responding, and they aren't getting the job done like these programs historically have. Especially Iowa State.
Chadron State College has there head coaching job open! The program is on the up and up!
Chadron State College has a head coaching job opening! The program is on the up and up now
Coach Barry Davis reportedly very recently received a contract extension until 2015.
The U. of Wisconsin lost nearly half its starting line-up to Olympic redshirts and such this past season, but still had an All-American last month at the NCAA's. We'll see during the upcoming season whether or not Coach Davis has the Badgers on the right track... It's not like they have inertia and momentum in their favor like 7 time NCAA team champion ISU had before recently placing their lowest in history at the NCAA's despite a record small quantity of participating teams.
can I get a "Barry Davis"?
WVU needs a change now!
What about simmons back at Michigan state?
Most of the Penn State starters the past two years were Cael's guys not Troy's guys. I will be very surprised if Jordan Leen doesn't end up with a Head Coaching job as the year ends.
MICHIGAN STATE MUST CHANGE...MINKEL IS AWFUL!!!
The legendary Mark Schultz should be coaching somewhere prominent.
Iowa State's problem is the Athletic Dept in general. Look at their track record: Gene Chizik - left and won a national title at Auburn. Sanderson leaves and wins a national title at Penn St. They have a history of being a stepping stone program. Until they pony up the funds to create a dominant athletic program, they will always be a stepping stone.
Penn State hosted the NCAA's around a decade ago but hired Troy Sunderland as their new head coach right beforehand, correct? Now the Lions are national champs, using several of Sunderland's recruits.
I was a big ISU backer in the Bobby Douglas days and Caels years, but gotta say the Clones really screwed themselves. Instead of getting a good coach this season Jackson has to stay another year because they host the National Tournament next season.
No one wants to coach at Iowa State. Pretty sad what Iowa State has become under Kevin Jackson
History has been getting made recently in Ames:
*First season without an All-American since '62;
*First consecutive losing seasons since...ever.
*Lowest placing at NCAA tourney since...ever.
*All presided over by a head coach whose U.S.A. Wrestling coaching tenure was apparently the least successful since.. ever.
*As for Cyclone wrestling fans, attendance has fallen by double-digit amounts since as recently as half a decade ago.
-Is it true that litigation's brewing among aspiring coaching candidates, especially after Coach Zalesky endured what he did in Iowa City half a decade ago while his Ames counterpart hasn't been held accountable, in ways that are scrutinized at ceousa.org ?
No one wants to be an assistant at Iowa State
I think University of Texas should make a change. LOL
They really should have a program....lots of wrestlers coming from Tejas!
And I would love to see Kenny Monday running the program
Cornell is pretty easily to get into if you are a wrestler. A 25 act and a 3.5 gpa isn't getting a normal high school kid into cornell
Don't forget Jordan Leen was an assistant at Duke during the 2010-2011 season so he's already familiar with the program... interim head coach Glen Lanham is also a great coach, and will get a good look for the head job.
Iowa State is in desperate need of a change of both coaching and administration
What I mean by trickle down effect, is that guys go back to their community and help coach. Since the economy is bad in the northeast a lot of guys are moving south. And the wrestling is getting better because of it. Think about Iowa. They have such a strong wrestling state because of former college wrestlers.
Jordan Leen dads coach in the south. He knows how a good program should be ran. Coaching is in his blood. He knows his way around the southeastern part of the country. I think that we have to start looking at younger guys to be successful college coaches. Jordan Leen is the next Jason Borrelli.
"The trickle down effect is the only thing that's hurting the south progress. Binghamton should stick to someone with New York roots. Not everyone can go to Cornell."
- I dont understand your comment. what trickle down effect? what do you mean by "progress"? and how is that hurting? if you are referring to the south not being as strong as the northeast in wrestling - then wouldn't it be better to bring in a coach from the northeast?
And what does Cornell have to do with anything? Yes, Jordan Leen went there, but if he were to coach at Duke, the academic qualifications for admission are pretty much the same.
And, finally, I would love to see the NC schools be more competitive on a national level, and there's no reason that can't happen with coaches like Popolizo at the helm. Bentley is doing great things with App State, UNCG was on the right track, and UNC can return to its glory days again - with a new coach.
Bing has wrestler arrested at airport one week, coach leaves the next. Does not look like a good direction.
Roy Hall would be a great assistant. Michigan State needs a coaching change the most. Would rather have Brian Smith at Michigan State. If I were Duke, I would go after somebody like Jordan Leen. He is young,and from the south. Knows what it takes to run a successful program. Pat Popolizo is going to figure out the south is a sleeping giant. The south have great numbers overall. Their are a lot of great athletes in the south. The trickle down effect is the only thing that's hurting the south progress. Binghamton should stick to someone with New York roots. Not everyone can go to Cornell.
Agree Michigan state needs a change
Guerrero will take over at Okie St. whenever that comes to be....Hall would be fantastic at MSU. Jeremy Spates is ready to HC, Eggum too, heck, so are Bormet and Pritzlaff, Dan Hicks, Mike Kulzicky, Kirk Trost, DEnnis DeLiddo, Stephen Abas,.....soe good coaching talent out there.
Roy Hall would be great at Michigan State.
Is Eric Guerrero ever going to coach else where?...He'd do a great job where ever.
I think Michigan State should make a change!
