    Alma Mater: Western Kentucky University

    COACHING CAREER


    1999-2000: WR Coach, Western Kentucky
    2000-2001: QB Coach, Western Kentucky
    2001-2002: Co-Offensive Coordinator/QB Coach, Western Kentucky
    2002-2006: Offensive Coordinator, Western Kentucky
    2007-2009: RB Coach, Stanford
    2010-Present: Head Coach, Western Kentucky

    Pros

    - Young up and coming coach, who has experience under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford
    - Has experience turning programs around (WKU was 0-12 before he was named coach)

    Cons

    - Long been rumored for the Kentucky job.
    - Limited experience in the west coast. Even with Stanford, most of his recruiting was in FL, GA & KY.

    I had only heard his name before but knew nothing about him. That doesn't matter obviously, but not a fan of his limited experience in the Pac 12 footprint.

    He did recruit a section of Cal...I think he's a great coach with controlled fire. He'd be a great recruiter on this level with much more discipline and creative packages.

    Not sure he ever made the list, but it sounds like we could cross him off... :huh:

    Anybody else starting to get a little troubled by the fact that MacIntyre has been passed over by Cal in favor of Dykes, and now passed over by USF in favor of Taggart? I don't know, maybe he's the perfect guy for us.

    Cal doesn't bother me too much. Aside from the fact that MacIntyre is right in their backyard, but they went to Louisiana to hire somebody, Dykes is a hell of a coach.

    If he was really serious about USF and couldn't get it, that does bother me more, though. Nothing against Taggart, who I think will do a great job for somebody, MacIntyre should sure as hell be a bigger "get" for a program like that. I wonder what kind of money they were both after, though... :huh:

    I suppose it is also possible that MacIntyre told them "no thanks."

    He doesn't look like Gerald Ford.

    Seems like a deal at only 1.15M a year over 5 years
