    Thought I would start this thread as a place to mention/discuss where everyone who just got canned ends up. Yes, I know that some of the more snarky of us would say good riddance, but they all worked really hard and I appreciate their service to my alma mater.

    It has already been mentioned that Poindexter ended up at Purdue. I just saw that Wayne Lineburg has landed at Wake Forest to coach (gulp!) special teams. BloggerSoDear blames our putrid return game on our lack of talent, not him. I think it is pretty evident to us Diaco said to fair catch everything.

    It says something about Coach Diabolical that his former assistants are landing in P5 jobs. (That it was him, not them.)

    It also might say he was good at picking his staff...which...I don't think was true.

    Ehh, perhaps not, but it's not like his staff choices were widely criticised. Most of his guys came in with decent resumes.

    More like Cummings. Aside from never having been a true OC Verducci had a pretty stellar resume. He was running game coordinator at ND and coached OL for some pretty good NFL teams and in college for some pretty good programs. Outside of producing 1 high level NFL draft pick and being a OC who never drew up game plans or called plays Mike Cummings had an extremely poor resume next to Verducci.

    Trouble was you could have fooled me when the change over was made. No difference on the field at all. Two hacks under Bob Dibacle.

    WR spot opened up at Iowa - I hope this doesn't happen, but I can see Campbell heading back there.

    It has already been confirmed that none of Diaco's staff will be returning. Campbell has already said his thanks and goodbyes over twitter.

    Diaco to Nebraska as DC. He was over his head as HC here, but he has a track record of success as a DC. He could do well there. I honestly hope he does.
