If I am maryland

Post by wpgrad » Wed Oct 31, 2018 9:04 pm

If i am maryland and i just fired my coach i offer ken niamatololo about $35million over 6-7 years and make him my next head coach. Be a shame to see navy lose their whole staff and then go hire their versions of berry and brock and ross and ellerson. A crying shame

I am glad the University took the necessary steps to finally fire Coach Durkin. I guess you might say that he is the type of coach and teacher of young men that should NEVER coach at any level in my opinion.

I know this is being said tongue in cheek but it's hard to see KN leave Navy for a situation like Maryland. They paid something like $30M to leave the ACC because they were tempted by the huge revenue sharing that BIG offers. The Athletic Dept has serious money problems. I don't know that they've got the money to make an attractive offer for a decent coach.

Woah. I quite literally just read that they were reinstating him about an hour ago. I was confused about your post until I updated my news feed. Things happen fast.

Who is now the Maryland AD? I can't remember . Was it Greenspan or Anderson or is one of them still there?

I tend to forget over time with either guy I just said because I have to. My nerves couldn't take either one while they both were at West Point.

Another question-

Take a look at the Maryland helmets. What the hell does that plethora of dizzy colors represent?

Anderson was at UMD. He took a sabbatical in late 2017 and resigned as it ended, before the scandal broke. He might have seen the writing on the wall.

(Also, the patterns match the Maryland state flag.)

Hopefully Maryland leaves all service academy coaches alone...

JEFF MONKEN
Current Position: Head Coach - Army

Maryland will never consistently compete in the Big Ten East without doing something different. Jeff Monken's triple-option system is different.

Monken can do better. His system is a turn-off to most programs but three straight seasons with at least eight wins at Army can't be ignored. However, if Maryland can make an attractive offer -- not just monetary; they must create a new leadership model -- it wouldn't be stunning to see the fifth-year Army coach take a shot in the Big Ten.

Maryland could use some actual leadership for once.

I doubt KN is going anywhere unless Navy gives him his walking papers. He had the chance to go to BYU and declined. The man is loyal to his players to a fault and a class act through-and-through, which is an extreme rarity these days. Plus I doubt any Power 5 program is going to roll the dice on a guy that only won 2-4 games in his last season.
