  • Ohio State Next Coach?

    Who should be the next coach at Ohio State? How about Paul Pooley? Walt Kyle? Miami Assistant? Just a few names i wanted to throw out there. Whoever it is should demand a hockey only facility.

    The Ohio State University doesn't hire assistants at Miami of Ohio any more than we hire their Assistant Professors. We hire their head coaches in the same way we take any tenured faculty that we deem worthy. If we're serious about rebuilding the program, then we need to make the appropriate commitment. I say we go after Rico. If he wants to hold some grandstanding press conference to turn us down, fine. It still sends the message to the rest of the college coaching fraternity that we're serious about this hire.

    OK Gene Smith, Geiger has left the building, and this is your first real hire. Let's see what you've got.

      Ken Hitchcock is available and he already has a house in the area.

        There are some folks in Rhode Island you might want to chat with before thinking Pooley and the "dump and watch" is a good idea.

            I'm sorry, did you just suggest Paul Pooley should get another head coaching job?

                not saying he should get the job only said would he be on the list. I think if Lucia is let go by the gophers they should go after him.

                    On what basis would they possibly be in the know as to what Ohio State's AD is thinking? Sounds like typical Miami of Ohio arrogance.

                      No. I don't. Ohio State is not going to go trolling for Miami of Ohio assistants before they've even let their own head coach go. Our AD's press release has already stated that we're going to "take our time" and conduct a "national search."

                      I think that counts for a little more than some blowhard in the stands last weekend.

                      Just to put things into perspective, Markell already made a 20% higher salary than Blasi. We could double Blasi's salary with what, to our athletic department, amounts to pocket change.

                        I'm deathly afraid of one certain possibility for this job.

                            And another program goes down hill? (bad pun) Why not just send Hill and then the Gophers might just recover.

                              Thinking you could possibly get Blasi from Miami is the height of lunacy.

                              You really want your AD to embarrass himself by publicly stating "We want Blasi" - just to make the fans think he's "going for it" - and then having Blasi say "no" publicly? (As if Blasi would bother with that charade anyway)

                              Please - if Gene Smith has any class, he won't be trying that shenanigan. At best, he should dot his i's and cross his t's by making a courtesy call to Mr. Blasi .... "Hi coach, would you be interested in talking to us? ... No? OK, take care. Click" ... and that would be the end of it.
