    New Bern, NC unless it's a home football game then I'm grilling on Devil's Alley
    NCSU is looking for a new DC; they just fired Huxtable. I don't know how Doeren's seat is doing, but it has to be getting pretty warm. Apparently not warm enough, but I'd imagine that 2020 will be his last without some success.

    If Southern Cal fires Clay Helton, will they talk Urban Meyer out of retirement ? Will Helton return to Duke ?

    I can't imagine Meyer wants a piece of USC. They would have to pay up big time to lure him from his cushy broadcast gig into that mess.

    I just figured out that he had two back to back nine win seasons before this year. Not sure why I thought they hadn't done nearly that well. Maybe it's just because the Raleigh fan base can be extra sensitive when it comes to success. ;p
    Anyway, with that record, I can't imagine Doeren going anywhere anytime soon, even if next year is a bust, too.

    Doeren success largely due to Drinkwitz, his OC until this year. When Drink moved to Happy Appy, the State offensive execution not happy.

    Maybe he got a phone call from David Tepper.

    Petersen is taking an administrative position with UW. He is stepping down from coaching due to burnout.

    The importance of coordinators and at USC

    Coordinators are very important in today's college football.


    At USC some fans are glued to the Internet expecting news on Helton. It would seem that if Helton was keeping his job, USC could announce it. Speculation is that they are negotiating the exit package for him and his assistants. Or it could be the they are giving Helton an ultimatum to fire the DC and STC or else he goes. Or maybe trying to line up a replacement before canning Helton. Who knows?

    Not so sure

    Petersen is only 55 years old. Probably burned out now but I would not be surprised if he is coaching somewhere in a year or two.

    Who knows, he may be coming to USC.

    Forgot my sarcasm emoji, a play on the suggestion Cut should retire after turning the Duke program around.

    Sounds like they had to make a bunch of commitments to bring him back (salary upgrades for assistants, facility upgrades, etc).

    They were having detailed conversations with him, they fell through, lots of people raised a huge stink (including former Duke beat writer Steve Politi and politicians I believe up to and including the governor), and they made nice with Schiano and made it work. Now he has to build around a relatively bare cupboard, though NJ typically has a surprisingly good talent pool and he has the full endorsement of the state's HS coaches.

    as an aside, I'm disappointed Duke no longer recruits NJ as successfully as we once did...as you say, LOTS of talent there, with good academics, and Duke is a known entity.

    From what I heard it was the AD Hobbs didn't really want Schiano. He originally was even going to interview him till a lot of Alums with money and power complained. Then when Hobbs made the negotiations difficult and leaked stuff that I heard wasn't totally true the Alums threatened to withhold their checkbooks and and walk away. Plus a bunch of the previous players under Schiano weren't very happy and voiced it as well. They're was a great opinion piece by Eric Lagrande that was published about it.

    You know, the thing about Rutgers is that it is "the university of" but due to the odd name, it doesn't have the cache of a state "university of" so it doesn't have the inherent advantages, or so it appears.

    Of course, maybe, the U of New Jersey wouldn't have cache anyway. If the stadium is downwind of Camden, that'll hurt attendance.
