    Was Neinas involved in the last search? It seems like Bohn didn't use him, but I don't recall the specifics. I'm going to bypass the angry emails to Bohn and start providing Neinas my thoughts on candidates if I can find an email for the guy. :smile:

    Hawkins was Neinas's guy.

    Do NOT use Neinas. Change the strategy this time. Please.

    Neinas was the brains behind the Hawkins hire. I wouldn't necessarily hold that against him, though. As we've said - as nauseum - Hawk was the right guy at the time.

    Hawkins was the right hire, turns out he wasn't a good hire.

    if it wasn't CU, some other BCS school was going to hire Hawkins.

    Nienas has a good track record, Hawk ain't one of them.

    Neinas was as much responsible for bringing in the pigeon as Bohner...

    I just think we need to go a different direction this time. Nothing against Neinas.

    Oh please. If Chuck Neinas gets Charlie Strong to interview here, are you or anybody else going to be pissed about it?

    Whoever comes in will have a shorter leash than Hawk was given, but otherwise, most folks won't give a damn who was the brains behind the hire. Ultimately, it's Bohn's responsibility anyway.

    i totally agree. however, there's so much "back to the past" BS on CU boards.

    that was 20 years ago.

    true. But the fans would still scream bloody murder when Neinas got announced. Perhaps a slower hiring process? More then 1 candidate?

    Really? I think the next hire is the most important hire this program will make for a long time because we will be stuck with that guy for a while. You cannot buy out two consecutive coaches for a large amount of money and afford to have the new guy on a short leash.

    More than one candidate is the first important step of the process.

    Our patience has worn thin. There is talent here, today's news notwithstanding. Whoever comes in here doesn't have a complete rebuilding project on his hands. With the talent on this team, the right people could have produced at least 5 wins by now, if not 6. The next guy won't be given four years. Three at the most. Probably more like two, with the expectation that we get some serious improvement.

    I think I remember hearing somewhere that Neinas also placed Carroll at USC and Mack Brown at UT. The guy does have a track record.

    Here's the 9-minute Outside-The-Lines ESPN profile of Chuck Neinas. Smiling at the end, covering up, trying to distract the more obvious answer. (There's a brief ad you have to sit thru, first...)

    "He recently has completed four coaching searches that concluded with the hirings of Randy Shannon at Miami (Fla.), Butch Davis at North Carolina, Tom O'Brien at North Carolina State and Mark Dantonio at Michigan State.

    Over the last decade, Neinas has helped schools hire some of the biggest coaching names in college football: Mack Brown at defending national champion Texas; Bob Stoops at Oklahoma; Tyrone Willingham at Notre Dame, then Washington; Les Miles at Oklahoma State, then LSU; Mark Richt at Georgia, and Dennis Franchione at Texas A&M."

    Think he had a part in Ron Prince's hire at KSU.

    Where is the money going to keep coming from? I would love to say the next guy has to show improvement by year two, but I just do not think that is realistic at all given our financial constraints. I think the next guy will be given four years at least.

    Are we going to have talent here when next year starts?

    I don't subscribe to pay sites but what I am reading here and at NB from some people is it sounds like there may be a massive exodus of talent on the way.
