    Bio

    In his first season as head coach of the Northern Illinois University football program, Dave Doeren and his Huskies achieved milestones rarely reached over the course of a career, let alone a single season.


    Doeren's first year at the helm of a program saw NIU win the school's first Mid-American Conference Championship since 1983, earn its second straight bowl victory and close out the year with nine straight victories en route to tying the school record with 11 wins.


    The Kansas native came to NIU after completing his fifth season at Wisconsin, where he served as defensive coordinator along with linebackers coach, with a trip to the 2011 Rose Bowl. In all, he helped take teams to eight bowl games and two national championship contests as an assistant. During Doeren's time at Wisconsin, the Badgers posted a 49-15 overall record and played in the Champs Sports Bowl (twice), Outback Bowl and Capital One Bowl.


    In January of 2008, Doeren added defensive coordinator duties to his assignment as linebackers coach after spending his first two seasons in Madison as the Badgers' co-defensive coordinator, linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator. The Shawnee Mission, Kansas native also served on successful coaching staffs at Kansas (2002-05), Montana (2000-01), USC (1998-99) and Drake (1995-97), his alma mater. He began his coaching career at Shawnee Mission Northwest High School in Shawnee, Kansas. His UW defenses were consistently ranked in the national top 25 in NCAA defensive categories. The 2010 Wisconsin defense ranked 20th in the country in total defense and in the Top 30 in both rushing and scoring defense. In 2009, Wisconsin led the Big Ten and ranked fifth in the country in rushing defense. The Badgers held each of their last 10 opponents in 2009 to less than 100 yards rushing, the longest streak in school history. Wisconsin led the nation in pass efficiency defense in 2006 and was the No. 2 scoring defense in the country.

    He may just be my favorite candidate. A winner with defensive coordinator experience at a big time school.

    I like this guy if we don't go for a BIG name candidate (I'm not referring to Mangino).

    Same. Took over after Jerry Kill and didn't turn around Wisconsin's D, it was already pretty good.

    Not saying he's a bad candidate, but he's not my favorite.

    I'd like it if he were at his current gig for longer than two years.

    Just from pure observations... run a lot of gun/pistol formations. They like a QB that is sturdy yet can take off with the rock and create things on the run. Pretty balanced offense... I think they were at 245 yds rushing a game this year with around 200 ypg passing. Their QB is having a crazy season. 2500 yds passing, 25 passing TD's, only 4 INT's, 1600 yds rushing, and 16 rushing TD's. We're talking Heisman stats. By comparison, Collin Klein has 2300 yds passing, 16 TD's, 6 INT's, 750 yds rushing, 20 TD's.

    Defense is a strict 4-3. I didn't notice a lot of blitzing. They run it a lot like we've seen Wisconsin defenses. You have to come and beat us.

    I'm intrigued by Doeren. The fact he was a DC at a top program and then was successful as a HC is obviously a huge positive. Concerns would be how much of his success at NIU was carryover from Kill.

    I don't know what he might be looking at for ACs on his staff, but I find it interesting that he worked under Mangino and MileHighSports was reporting Mangino rumors. Wonder if there might be a Doeren HC and Mangino OC pairing.

    I wouldn't hate the hire, but it doesn't create much of a splash. Maybe I'm overrating the "splash" factor, but I am of the opinion that in order to compete for recruits in the Pac 12, you need to be recognizable. He's not.

    I don't want to derail this thread (mods, please move if needed), but I've been thinking & wondering what would constitute a big splash hire. I'm having a hard time coming up with a name that does that and is still a somewhat realistic prospect for CU. None of the names of Wilcox, Doeren, Andersen, Deruyter, MacIntyre scream splash hire to me, although I think they'd all be excellent candidates. Maybe I'm selling those names short and some would be considered splash hires. The closest semi-realistic name that seems like a splash to me is Diaco.

    footballscoop.com reporting that Doeren, who was a target for the Purdue vacancy, is no longer in consideration for the Boilermakers. Could it be that he removed himself in favor of another opportunity?

    seems like we would have to wait until after this weekend to hear about Doeren.

    If he is the guy, I hope he hires a DC familiar with the PAC-12. Coordinating the defense at Wisconsin is not exactly the greatest blueprint for defending PAC-12 offenses.

    Northwestern hasn't exactly been running the most conventional of offenses, but you do have something of a point. Oregon is still pretty unique.

    Doeren is now on top of my list for CU coaches. He was the DC for Wisconsin until he became the NIU head coach. Before that, he was the LBs coach on that Orange Bowl team for KU. Him being the head coach and Mark Mangino being his OC has to be pretty appealing at this point.

    Seems like a real players coach during that video. Interested to see how the game turns out this week.
