    kinda off topic, but his dad, Don McCall, was one of the most influential people during my time in high school. I am a big fan of his family other than his brother Randy.

    That resume just isn't doing it for me. I do like the NW offense, though.

    Ties to the local area aren't everything but Mick McCall's case it is a huge plus. Having been a head coach at Mullen and actively recruiting kids out of the Denver metro for Bowling Green and Northwestern, he could bring in ties to the area that the last two coaches lacked and never established. CU has been terrible about letting the local talent go out of the state.


    If CU could retain the 2 star plus recruits from the local area that would easily be worth 5 wins a season alone. They say it's not always about the X and Os, but the Jimmys and the Joes. We need to start local, get a solid base of recruits and put in a system that does more with less.


    And to that testament, not only has McCall been pulling more talent out of the State than CU, he has done more with recruits. Think about Northwestern's academic standards, look at their recruits and try to tell me what the numbers they put up in the B1G conference aren't solid.


    I wish McCall would get a serious look, he certainly has the right tools and the commitment to resurrect the Buffs program.

    Appears to have been around for a long time. Why has he never been an HC up to now?

    I think he'd be a homerun as OC. Don't want as HC

    Visually this guys is the exact opposite of Embree. Mac would lose his mind.

    I'm on board. Bring him in.
