    Mike MacIntyre: Current Head Coach San Jose St.

    San Jose State Profile
    [​IMG]
    Mike MacIntyre was named the 29th San Jose State University football coach on December 17, 2009.

    MacIntyre embarks on his third season as head coach after accepting a contract extension through 2017. The 2011 Spartans produced the fourth-best positive turnaround in University football history with a 4.5 games improvement. San Jose State exhibited the resiliency and resourcefulness to find a winning way. 

    Four of the team's five wins were in the final minute of the fourth quarter. The opportunistic Spartans, 5-7 in 2011, were the co-national leaders with their 20 fumble recoveries, tied for fourth in turnovers gained with 33, were disciplined as the second least penalized team in the Football Bowl Subdivision and were ranked in the top-25 in passing offense (23rd) for the first time in eight years.

    San Jose State's three first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selections were the most in a season since joining the WAC in 1996. Five players were named to national award Watch Lists and quarterback Matt Faulkner was the Most Valuable Player of the 2012 Casino del Sol All-Star Game.

    Before his 2010 head-coaching debut, the Spartans' coach instituted the most comprehensive recruiting plan ever at the university and initiated a "summer bridge" program for his first recruiting class to provide his newcomers a smooth transition into life as a college football player. Facing five nationally-ranked teams in the first six weeks of the season, he emphasized and stressed year-round conditioning. The Spartans rebuilt themselves repeatedly, and despite a 1-12 record were positioned late for victory in four of their final five games.

    The experiences gained and lessons learned were noticed conference-wide and nationally. Linebacker Keith Smith became the first San Jose State player to be named a WAC Freshman of the Year and a Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-America. Linebacker Vince Buhagiar, wide receiver Noel Grigsby and punter Harrison Waid also received Freshman All-America recognition. No other Football Bowl Subdivision team had more 2010 Freshman All-Americas than San Jose State.

    Now in his 22nd season of coaching, the 47-year old MacIntyre came to San Jose State after two seasons as the defensive coordinator at Duke University. Those Blue Devil defenses were among Duke's best statistically over a 20-year span. In 2009, Duke's five wins were the most in a season by the Blue Devils since 1994. The American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) named him its 2009 FBS Assistant Coach of the Year.

    Prior to joining the staff at Duke, MacIntyre spent five seasons in the NFL with the New York Jets (2007) and Dallas Cowboys (2003-06) coaching defensive backs. Working for legendary coach Bill Parcells, the Cowboys returned to the playoffs in 2003 and again in 2006 after missing out on post-season competition during the 2000 through 2002 seasons.

    MacIntyre has coached on both sides of the ball, spending four years at Ole Miss (1999-2002) where he started as the wide receivers coach for two seasons and the defensive secondary coach in his final two years. The Rebels posted a 29-19 record in that time with bowl appearances in the 1999 and 2002 Independence Bowls and the 2000 Music City Bowl. The 2001 Rebels ranked fifth nationally in pass defense, allowing just 161.3 yards per game.

    Along his coaching trail, he has mentored many current NFL players including Cincinnati Bengals safety Roy Williams, a five-time Pro Bowl player. MacIntyre was instrumental in recruiting current San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis to Mississippi.

    His coaching career began as a two-year graduate assistant at the University of Georgia (1990-91). He then worked one year as the defensive coordinator at Davidson (1992), four at Tennessee Martin (1993-96), and two at Temple (1997-98).

    A 1989 graduate of Georgia Tech, he played two seasons (1987-88) at free safety and punt returner for head coach Bobby Ross. Prior to becoming a Yellow Jacket, MacIntyre played two seasons (1984-85) at Vanderbilt for his father, George MacIntyre, the head coach of the Commodores from 1979-85.
    MacIntyre earned a bachelor's degree in business management at Georgia Tech and a master's degree in education with an emphasis on sports management from Georgia in 1991.

    Born on March 14, 1965, in Miami, Fla., he and his wife, Trisha, have three children, Jennifer, a junior at Baylor University, Jay Michael and Jonston.

    Hadn't seen his profile yet and he's worth considering given that he is in the Pac 12 footprint, has BCS experience (SEC no less) has a proven ability to rebuild a dying program, etc.

    SJSU lost by 3 points at Stanford to start the season this year and beat LA Tech. Their other loss however was to one of our other top candidates, Gary Anderson.

    SJSU was very close to dropping football entirely when MacIntyre took over. There was no FBS program worse off than SJSU at the time.

    2010: 1-12 (0-8)
    2011: 5-7 (3-4)
    2012: 10-2 (5-1)

    Talk about a remarkable rebuild/turnaround. The guy worked absolute wonders. For those of you who favor the Defense guys, you should be giving this guy a long look.

    I hadn't paid much attention to him because I had been assuming that Cal would land on him.

    His OC is a very promising young coordinator.

    ^ Yep, I think this guy is right in there with Anderson, Dykes, DeRuyter, and Hazell. He took over what may have been the worst situation of them all and has them completely turned around in 3 years. Impressive.

    While his 5-7 season last year isn't overly eye popping, it's interesting how many close games they had that year. Lots of close wins and losses. They did get steamrolled by Stanford, but it's hard to fault them on that one. Talk about a talent discrepancy.

    Looking a bit closer at this guy, I'm very impressed with him. Maybe the most impressive result on this year's schedule came in a losing effort against Stanford, where they played the Cardinal very close, losing 20-17 at Stanford. Steady improvement from year to year, solid defensive mind; very impressive indeed.

    SJSU was driving for the tying or go-ahead score late in the 4th qtr. when their QB threw into coverage and was intercepted!

    I am definitely down with MacIntyre, DeRuyter and many others still on the board so I am still optimistic even though others are coming off the board.

    I keep overlooking this coach...I'd be happy if we got him. Helping turn Duke around and have them compete is no small feat.

    Agree with all above...IMO any "good " coach will do good at CU as long as they get keys to the Cadillac... Support does wonders for these kinds of coaches

    Oh snap! I didn't know about the Baylor thing.

    I've said it on other places, and I'll say it here:

    I have a hunch that in five-to-ten years we'll look at Coach MacIntyre doing BIG things (Harbaugh type stuff) and say, "damn...do you remember when we could have had that guy?"

    I really like what MacIntyre has done over what DeRuyter has done. No getting around what a complete and total disaster that SJSU was before Mac showed up.

    Re: Mike MacIntyre: 2012 Colorado Coaching Search Profile

    Head coach, turned around a team that was not just down, but almost out. Now winning ten games. Mac is the guy for CU. Bohn....don't you dare hire DeRuyter without interviewing Mac. And call Anderson back.

    This! Sooooooooooooo glad it didn't work out with Jones. He'll be stuck in Cincy forever now.

    The other benefit with Macintyre...we get another Coach Mac :nod:

    I think he means an 80's/90's version of coach Mac.

    I'm on board. Wish he had some AQ experience, but what he's done at Duke and SJSU is very impressive.

    You are correct. To clarify my original statement: I wish he had coordinator experience at a big time program. Though he was a position coach at Ole Miss.

    SJSU had the top ranked recruiting class in the WAC for 2012.

    Ah, I see. But that doesn't necessarily make him a bad coach, that just means he is a bad interviewee. I'd heard and posted similar concerns previously that some folks felt he lacked some of the personality/charisma that you'd like your head coach to have. However, if you look at his record and resume, I don't see how you can conclude that he is not a good coach.
