    Agree.

    Pair him with a really good OC and you'd have the makings of a tremendous coaching staff.

    He's going to be an obvious candidate for any B1G opening. It'll take the facilities announcement plus some serious cash to get him to take on the challenge that is CU.

    Probably so. In which case:

    Justin Wilcox. Hire him. Now.

    Familiar with him from his time at UVA. Everyone knew even then that he was headed for the big time, and that any time he spent there as a position coach was a major coup.

    Will there be any openings in the Big 10 this offseason though? Maybe IU. But you're right, it'll not only take the cash but also a serious commitment to the football program.

    Yeah, probably not this year. The imminent jobs would probably be Minnesota and Indiana. You just gotta think these guys who have been tapped as the next hot HC candidate can afford to be patient and picky about where they go next. Generally, you only have one shot at proving yourself as a HC. The guys that crap out of their first big job have a hard time getting back their reputation. It's great to get a HC's salary for 3-4 years, but it's a lot better to be making that money for the rest of your career. So, Boulder's going to have to appeal to the next guy in some way beyond just the money.

    Why? 2 years as a RB coach at the major college level? No thanks.

    He's not gonna leave a HC gig to become an OC for the worst FBS team out there. If it was OC for USC, Oregon or Bama I could see it happening, but you don't bolt a HC job for an OC position with CU. Would love it, but not gonna happen. Now Taggart as HC? A stretch but he's turned a terrible WKU team around.

    Right, and he runs an offensive style that could work with current Buffs players. That was my thinking

    This is why I feel so inadequate talking football with you guys. I have no clue who Bob Diaco is.

    I want someone like Diaco or Mike Stoops or Kirby Smart or Nick Allioti. We were successful with a defensive minded coach in McCartney. Maybe that is the secret to winning at CU. That and I really like to watch top tier defenses.

    Taggart is towards the top of my list with Dykes. I suspect that he'll get the UK job when Joker Phillips is shown the door. Taggart uses some interesting formations, spreads it out some and uses quite a few I formation lineups. Learned under Harbaughs.

    I don't know. I had to type B O B D I A C before Google found him. Seems kind of sketchy to me. If he were that great, all I would have had to type would be "B O B."

    I like taggart strong diaco and dykes as the start of a list of hc candidates. I'd also like them to look at some nfl coordinators if they could be paired with good recruiters. I'd also take a shot quietly at some of the huge names out there jus to see if we could maybe get one of them.

    I'd offer 3 to 5mm per year with 3 to 7 years guaranteed depending on the candidate. I'd also commit to big money for the assistants.

    Also I'd announce the big facilities upgrade so the coach felt like he's coming into an upswing that will help him recruit.

    Not saying our buffs will do this because the record suggests otherwise but if you want a relatively quick turnaround that's how I'd do it.

    I asked this ? on rivals over a month ago and ND fans said he was headed for a big time job, but maybe not ready this year fwiw. The main thing is whether he would be interested in more of a west coast job

    :dead-horse-fast2: Really think there will be no change to the staff this summer... we all need to just be patient and hope for the best. Do not see anyone coming in - it is what it is!

    If the Iowa job opens up at the end of the year I would have to think that would be a natural fit for Bob Diaco.

    Iowa would be at the top of the list of schools looking for a new head coach if they hadn't just extended Kirk Ferentz through 2020.
