    Tim DeRuyter from Fresno. I like where they are going. They ran laps around CU and kept pace with both Oregon and Boise this season winning the WAC. He's a 3-4 guy which i think you need to have to play against the Spread offense, and also himself incorporates the spread offense. Check this tidbit:


    Experience/Bio: DeRuyter has a history of turning college football defenses around. Before his second arrival at Ohio in 2002, the Bobcats ranked 99th nationally; upon his departure to Nevada, the Bobcats ranked 22nd. At Nevada, the Wolfpack improved from 78th to 48th under his tutelage. As the defensive coordinator at Air Force from 2007–09, DeRuyter replaced a bend-but-don't-break scheme with an aggressive 3-4 defense. In 2006, prior to his arrival, the Falcons ranked 78th in scoring defense and 78th in total defense. In 2009, the Falcons finished 10th in scoring defense and 11th in total defense. In the 2009 Armed Forces Bowl against Houston, the Falcons limited the nation's second-ranked passing offense to a season-low of 222 passing yards. They also recorded six interceptions.[2][3] DeRuyter became Texas A&M's defensive coordinator in 2010. The Aggies ranked 104th in scoring defense in 2009, under a 4-3 defense. In 2010, under his 3-4 defense, they improved to 21st in scoring defense.
    1.) Attacking big play offense.... ie, spread/spread option. We need to maximize our best home field advantage, which is the altitude. Spread or attacking offense is required here to gas out teams like USC/UCLA, others. We might not ever have the talent they have, but we have home field advantages they cant replicate in the thin air. SPEED up the game. Attack down the field. Wear the team out for 60 minutes.
    2.) Big play capability on defense to give the offense more opportunities. 3-4 best suited to attack the spread and other teams. Better at bringing pressure from all angles. See Stanford, Alabama, Notre Dame, all 3-4 defenses, all playing for championships.
    3.) The most important stat of all: Scoring offense and defense


    Questions:
    - Only one year at Fresno St. Can he recruit his own guys?
    - No major conference head coaching experience
    - Are we just looking at him because they killed us?


    Strengths:
    - Great Defensive mind
    - Track record of improvement
    - West coast guy
    - Has Texas recruiting ties from his A&M days

    Good stuff. Guys, some of these posts will be merged into actual threads about each individual candidate (like the Bellotti one) so don't flip out if you wonder where the posts went.:thumbsup:

    Good candidate. As I mentioned during the preseason, he did inherit a load of experience at Fresno State and I predicted they would be good. I knew they had problems on defense in 2011 and he'd turn that around. Pretty amazing how quickly the offense improved though and it's because they went from Pat Hill's painful pro-style offense to the zone-read spread style. It's easy, quick to implement, and hard to defend.

    Their offensive coordinator, Dave Schramm should be a hot ticket somewhere. (like if Anderson got this job here). Ex Utah Ute coordinator. Forced out by Whittingham (duh) in exhange for Norm Chow. Regrets Kyle?

    Fresno St. did very well this year under him. I stopped paying attention to them after they whitewashed us, but man, they really did well.
    I am very interested in him. I assume he will be a hot property this year.

    One of the guys that should be at the top of the list. I'd be surprised if the search committee didn't at least reach out to gauge his interest...

    Defense

    Feel strongly this is our next head coach. Good defensive mind. Make Telford OC. Also note that Deruyter was in C Springs this weekend and, if he's on Bohn's radar, he would probably be gone after this season or next.

    Texas and Cali ties make him very attractive.

    Recruiting would be my main concern here. He seems to have the X's and O's figured out.

    Whether it's Deruyter, Tedford, Belloti or someone else, I just hope they get someone who already has strong ties to CA and/or TX. I absolutely do not want an SEC coach who has to build a brand new network in our most important recruiting areas.

    Totally agree. One of the reasons I like him over other candidates. Not sure I'd put him #1 yet but let's see how things unfold. Should be an exciting ride.

    Deruyter at HC and Stitt at OC is the best feasible option in my mind right now. Probably won't happen, but I can dream.

    In another thread I suggested criteria for the new HC at CU should be:

    My personal list:
    -Division 1 HC experience (BCS preferred)
    -BCS Experience as position coach or coordinator
    -Coaching experience in the Pac 12 footprint (not required to have Pac 12 coaching experience)
    -Successful experience in a rebuilding effort
    -Nice if they have had some kind of connection with the state of Colorado in the past
    -Would be great if they have been at least on a coaching staff that has done a major fundraising campaign for facilities
    -Strong recruiting credentials

    A few others suggested adding in direct experience in Cali and TX while another suggested he also should be in consideration at other BCS jobs.

    I think DeRuyter maybe one of the only candidates we have discussed that meets almost all the criteria.

    That's my one concern with him. Good results, but he didn't exactly wander into a mess.

    Not saying he would be a bad hire, but Ags I know say he that recruiting was not his strong point when he was in College Station. I still think he fits a lot of the criteria.

    Aggie defense:

    2008 - 37.4 ppg (115th)
    2009 - 33.5 ppg (104th)
    2010 - 21.9 ppg (35th)

    2008 - 462 ypg (115th)
    2009 - 426 ypg (105th)
    2010 - 364 ypg (55th)

    Impressive improvement under Tim Deruter in 2010.

    interesting. Goes against the rumors as far as which one of the guys is leading, but who knows. Interview must have gone well!

    He has quite the defensive background that's for sure. I definitely like DeRuyter over Anderson.

    Exactly me too. This was my original #1, but then I moved to Anderson.
    But like them both.
    Where are we hearing that this is the guy?
