Title: Coach 2018
Post by: LZH on November 10, 2017, 02:44:36 pm
Just heard- Matt Campbell or Mike Norville. One of them will be our new head coach next year, barring some weird experiment. Jeff Long is kinda sitting this one out, or so I'm told. Big money grips have spoken.

But what I can't figure out is, who is the best choice?

So, if either fail will the "big money grips" be held accountable?

Would be nice.   Just a gut feeling, but Norvell I would think.   But that's splitting straws, be happy either way.

***   assuming of course your source is spot on.  ;)

Novell would be about $6m cheaper.

Post by: jgphillips3 on November 10, 2017, 02:53:29 pm
Either are low risk, high reward.  Campbell has a little better track record and probably can demand more security.  Norvell is probably more innovative and cheaper to acquire/fire if it blows up.  I think both are outstanding coaches.  Personally, and itís close...real close, Iíd go Norvell.

Nah, I'm saying this is the 2017's, we have a designated forum for coaching rumors. I hope it wasn't Bolin, lol....and watch where you're kissing, some may not know what tail you've been kissing.

And that of course would be huge.  Forgot about Campbell's buyout.

I don't have a clue about his buyout. But apparently he is 1A compared to Norville's 1B. And this information, for what it's worth, happens to come from someone that is a member of Hogville.

I truly feel that Campbell would just be a stop for him till the next opportunity, but Norvell is one I could see making a career if he was successful.  Just a thought could be totally wrong.
Title: Re: Coach 2018
Post by: hog_fan on November 10, 2017, 04:18:46 pm
5 million to fire BB and 5 million to buyout Campbell. Not likely. I take Norvell over him.

9.4 to buyout Campbell.

Would have to think some kind of negotiation has to happen to make it happen.

There have been others to look at his buyout and they came up with $6.4m, either way, it's going to take Jerra money, Warren money, Fletcher money, Lindsey money, George money......I think you get the drift.

Just wonder if we don't do a bit of Florida maneuvering too.  Worse ideas than paying Iowa State 2mil for a OOC game AND as a part of the buyout.


Since I'm dreaming, Iowa St. wouldn't be a bad landing spot for Bert.  Maybe greasing that wheel could be worth a bit too.

He's had his little feelers out since the Aurbun game. Hopefully they get cut off. IMO he is a d-bag and we can do better.

He would have come in 2013 if he had been offered. Jeff wasn't going to hire anyone with Arkansas Ties....call it the purge. Same reason he didn't hire Tim Horton as interim coach...got to consolidate power....

Gus has some guys up there in his corner. The anti Gus crowd isnt putting up much of a whimper this time. This is Gus's dream gig....he would jump all over it if he was offered the job.

I don't want him either but if he is hired, i will give him a chance and root for him and his team. That how it was with Beliema. I didn't care for the hire but I gave him a chance, thought it might work and even defended him some. He now has to go. The problem with this site is that if certain posters choice ain't hired, they will whine, complain and nitpick every little thing they can like spoiled children. It makes the site almost unreadable at times.

Pretty much true for me as well.  I thought he was a good hire at the time, and resume suggested so.  Just hasnít worked.  Lots of what look like good choices.  Somebody will start building into something solid that most will get behind.  Iíll support the coach whoever it may be.
