It seemed like during the season we had plenty of people that knew what our offense needed. Granted I had some suggestions myself, but how many of those people are going to apply?

Glen Mason would be a good fit

It's not exactly a position loaded with long term security. If the guy hired and Buddha in general fail in 2007, it's a one year gig with an "F" on the resume.

True, but that's also a good gamble for a guy b/c if he does a good job, than he might be considered for the head coach position if/when it opens.

I bet it'd go for a small fortune on eBay right now, too.

The NFL merry-go round might provide some possibilities, and some that are well versed in the west coast offense which effectively combates defensive team speed, while option succumbs to it. Option is a good OPTION, not a great foundation.

Fit like another headache. Mason left KU football. Fans will remember this. He has been trying to leave his position at Minnesota, too. I think Mangino needs to look for somebody not so personally close to him who has a proven track record for success. There are certainly some unprovens out there that might turn out well, but I don't think that's the message Lew Perkins is trying to instill in the minds of the public about our program. If they are willing to pay $1.5 M to have a football coach at KU, we have to be willing to have a great offensive coordinator. I think KU has a great defensive coordinator and if we can only match that on offense, you may start talking about KU being a threat in the North conference instead of talking about how KU can't seem to get road wins or blows leads late in the game. I'm expecting a great hire because I think Mangino's job is on the line. He may only have a season or two to show some turnaround or KU may be seeking a better head coach.

According to the Slant the list of candidates is very impressive. They don't want to list names because if other teams find out they might hire them before we can.

Is there any hint about how soon one might be offered the position? The impression I'm getting is that it will be after signing period (recruiting).

Practice...that's the latest scoop. Geez, I hope so! (Duh)

Yeah, you would hope so by then, else KU will be learning as they go, which can't be a very good sign for the season ahead.

Since his Bro jumped ship, Paul Petrino of Louisville might be available as OC.

I obviously missed something here. What happened to Quartaro? Did Mangino get smart and fire him?

Re: Buddha want's the guy before spring.... - 01/09/07 08:08 PM

Yeah, you missed it! Nick left "football" to pursue outside interests......the Buddah said he will be missed and wished him well.

Nick Quartaro, offensive coordinator
Why: Resigned
When: Dec. 29
Kansas Candidates:
Kansas WR coach Tim Beck
Oklahoma QB coach Josh Heupel
Kansas OL coach John Reagan
The latest: (11:26 a.m. ET, 12/30/06): Quartaro announced his resignation to pursue opportunities outside of coaching.


I wonder if we will know in the next few days? I would love to see Major in Crimson and Blue. I would much rather have someone with OC credentials than promote a position coach. Especially one of ours trained by NQ.
