    Temple will not interview ODU's Bobby Wilder for vacant head coaching position

    >>Meanwhile, ODU athletic director Wood Selig says Wilder was offered a new contract on Friday. Selig would not discuss details of the offer, but two ODU officials said a handful of the school's major donors have pledged enough money to provide Wilder a pay raise for the next few seasons. The contract offer also contains an incentive clause, sources say, that would provide Wilder with a significant pay increase if the Monarchs have a winning season and go to a bowl game in 2017.<<

    Name I've heard as a possible option for #Temple HC vacancy: #SamHoustonSt HC K.C. Keeler, the former Delaware coach.

    Mike Sanford is gonna be a good HC. He worked at Boise under Peterson and Kelly was able to get him to ND to tutor Zaire and Kizer. They took a hit on offense in the skill positions this year but this IMHO is a good hire.
    As for Temple...I'm a bit surprised at the lack of candidates for that job..BUT in a way it peaks volumes about what is going on there facility wise. Keeler would have a lot of recruiting contacts form is time at UD so he could slide right in there and HS coaches will be familiar with him.

    Yeah, noted that a few post up... sounds like they are all leveraging what they can. The only real difference in my mind between Richmond and Delaware is one is a private school, both can have great FCS success under right coach.

    Philip Montgomery's TU contract extended to 2022

    >>Two years have been added to Montgomery’s initial five-year contract, extending it to January 2022, Gragg said. More than 20 donors privately raised a large sum of money that was primarily used to significantly increase the salaries for Montgomery’s assistants. “(Montgomery) was much more interested in making sure he would be able to retain his current staff or have the ability to do that,” Gragg said. “In the conversations I had with the president and our donors, they were very aware of that. They did step up.”

    Montgomery also received a bump in pay that a source close to the process indicated was relatively modest. His previous salary of slightly more than $1 million was among the lowest for a head coach in the American Athletic Conference. As a private university, TU is not required to disclose the financial details.<<

    #LSU makes it official announcing #Pitt OC Matt Canada as its new OC. Canada turned down 3 other Power5 OC jobs in past 48 hrs, per source.

    That was the smartest thing Narduzzi did was hiring Canada. Good move by Orgeron. BD needs to find his Canada.

    I was hoping we had a shot at Longo, but now that I see that the previous OC at Ole Miss was making $670K we probably didn't have the money to get him aside from the SEC experience that we couldn't offer. Great . . .
