Kiesau will do just fine, thanks. Hell, he gets a buyout just like Hawk did. Not as much, but he gets a buyout and he is probably still pretty highly regarded in the coaching community. So, he will get a job pretty quick and get the buy out bonus to boot.
Unless Embree and EB have their sights set on someone specific, might he just stay on as his old position as a wr coach. The dude is a solid assistant and recruiter, I wouldn't mind him staying on as wr/passing game coach.
Nor would I. I wonder if the admin is "encouraging" JE to make such a decision? It would save a half mil.
Becoming a coordinator at CU is a very good thing for Kies. I believe his experience here, will be a good thing for his career.
Don't disagree, but he would be in a hell of a lot better position today had he bailed out last year for Oregon. And, the baggage associated with his time under Danny will considerably weigh down his short-term advancement. If he is any good (and the jury is out), then he likely lost 3-5 years on his career.
I've had the same thought. People don't seem to think much of Kennedy as a coach, just as a recruiter. Kiesau is a pretty good recruiter, at least decent as a WR coach, and already under contract.
Of course, after the demotion he's going to be gone for the first opportunity he gets elsewhere, so the question is, how much is getting Kennedy worth to us?
He is 38. A bit much to act like he killed his career.
I am more than fine letting him move on as well.
EK I think is only guaranteed 200K?
