Calhoun is not leaving AFA for CU.
My dad's an AFA guy (alumnus, booster, etc) and basically Calhoun would only leave for an NFL job, if he'd leave AFA at all. He loves it at the Academy.
I find it hard to believe that Calhoun would say anything differently to AFA boosters and fans. But I'd also be surprised if he wouldn't talk to CU at the least, given that he has coached at other colleges (Wake Forest and Ohio). I'm sure he'd be making more money at CU, too.
He was honest enough to say that if the right NFL head gig came along he'd look at that.
He's not a CU kind of guy. Believe me or don't. And you'd be surprised what Calhoun is getting paid, perhaps he'd get more at CU but I don't see him as a candidate in Boulder. He's also got around a 1.5 million dollar buyout.
It's likely that Calhoun is the next Fisher DeBerry in terms of longevity at the Academy.
I like the way you think, newbie! These are my two favorite choices, in reverse order.
Snyder is running a version of that same old Nebraska offense of you speak, and they put 30 on OU in Norman last Sat with what I'd consider less talent on O than the buffs have. Nobody prepares for that attack anymore.
Calhoun is making half what Hawkins makes. He may love AFA, but everyone has their price. Hell, I love my wife but if Rebecca Romain calls I'm outta here!
ps. jus kiddin, mrs. stamp; I'd never leave you for RR., she's ugly!
That would be good news for the academy. Too bad for us, because that is a name that I would not mind seeing brought in for an interview.
Ken N. for coach. Hanson would look good running the flexbone.
