New coach, who is it going to be?

New coach, who is it going to be? 


I'd like to hear a top three from everyone on who will be our next head coach.  We can all agree Coach Johnson has to go.

Re: New coach, who is it going to be? 


I do not know the leadership capabilities from these men at all. Just going on their "track record." haha.  I want a competitor, natural born leader, and someone with the energy of the energizer bunny. I dont think we can afford a proven head coach so we must go after a up and coming star. We may not can afford anyone on my list either though.

1. Kliff Kingsbury
2. Todd Monken
3. Blake Anderson

Yes, they are all young, offensive minded coaches. They MUST understand that defense is very important as well.

General Hammond has already done so much for Southern Miss.  Cite Donnie Tyndall for the type of hire we'll have for our next football coach.  We need to keep the General.  I trust him on this next hire.

Sure wish we'd have the money to get him.  Unfortunately, after they beat Alabama we won't be able to get him.

Morris makes over $1 million as OC at Clemson...he's out of our pay range.

I don't know about a Top 3, but here are some names:
Anderson- OC UNC
Kingsbury- OC Texas A&M
Neal Brown- OC Texas Tech
Monken- OC OK St.
Shannon Dawson- OC WVU (sliding down the list, may not be ready)
Mark Stoops- DC FSU
Doug Nussmeier- OC Bama
Mark Helfrich- OC Oregon
Bob Diaco- DC Notre Dame
Willie Taggart- HC WKU
Darrell Hazell- HC Kent St.
Todd Berry- HC UL-Monroe
Dave Doeren- HC NIU
Bobby Wilder- HC Old Dominion
Willie Fritz- HC Sam Houston St.
Danny Rocco-HC Univ. of Richmond
Clint Conque- HC Central Arkansas

Not sure on how much most of these guys make or whether they would be a good fit for us. 
If I'm looking for someone with HC experience then I think you look at Doeren, Hazell, Wilder or Rocco.
Otherwise, I'm looking at Kingsbury, Brown, Anderson and Monken.

I feel that Anderson is our quickest route to recovery, especially if he brings Kap and/or Deke Adams back with him.

haha! I have been wondering what type of coach the guy from Kent State is. He has done a great job.

We aren't going to get a head coach from another FBS school. It may be a step up in pay and competition, but it's not an AQ job. We'll have to hire a coordinator or an FCS coach

I really don't think USM needs to look very far down the road to hire a true winner with that being STEVE CAMPBELL!!!! He has won on all levels of college athletics, and would be a great recruiter, and without a doubt he would bring some much needed fire to the sidelines at USM!biggrin Yes he has coached at MSU, won a national championship at Delta State and at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College! A well known and respected name in coaching!

Campbell's name came up last year during the coaching search.  There is no doubt, the guy can coach.  Not sure if he'll be given an interview but he's a good one.

He won't come here. I can say with near certainty that he does not want this job.

I believe Gus Malzahn took a pay cut to go from Auburn to Arkansas State, so just because they make more money now is not necessarily a reason to say we can't get them.

I just read that Ellis Johnson is being retained. I have to see any links on this though.
