Does anyone know why they aren't advertising for the vacant coaching position? I hear there are more staff who are being encouraged to seek employment elsewhere so I realize Kirk may not know how he is going to shuffle his staff around, but you would think they would do like they did last year and just advertise for an asst. coach position and leave the specifics open. Is he waiting until after signing date so they don't lose any recruits?
ISU posted its asst. coach position the day prior to the announcement the coach was leaving to coach with his brother.
I don't get why everything has to be so secretive with Iowa.
I'm not really sure. The only insight I can add on this is that one of the recruits was told Iowa already has a good idea who the next wide receivers coach will be.
They still have to advertise it. Why wouldn't they advertise it and get on with hiring the guy?
Erb is looking and apparently, there are rumors on a couple other coaches wanting/hoping/being encouraged to leave.
All they'd have to do is advertise for an asst. coach and they'd have it covered for any coaches who leave. Really makes no sense to me.
Are they trying to keep this all hush, hush so other schools can't twist some recruits' arms?
Not at all disagreeing with you - just passing along the only piece of info I've heard on that end. Not sure why Iowa wouldn't post it.
I understand, but I just don't get it. Advertise it even if it is just to go thru the motions and hire the guy you want. I don't understand how it helps to delay hiring the coaches. Did the same thing last year too. Then had to ask to have the timeframe waived on Davis because they suddenly had to get someone hired.
Kf should give the Oregon wr coach a call now. He's from Lincoln Nebraska and coached wr and co oc for northern iowa until going to Oregon in 2009. Maybe he will want to come back to iowa? Has experience with high octane offenses and built up good recruiting connections while at Oregon. Would be a home run hire in my eyes.
Could be a great hire, but I think most of that staff stays intact. Plus, there will be an OC position available in Oregon now.
