    Is he a legitimate candidate?

    We can not hire a head coach out of the D-II ranks. We just can't.

    As an assistant? Sure, I could get interested in that. But no way should Wristen or Stitt be on our radar as head coach.

    I would be fine with Stitt at the OC position but not a HC. I would go with a strong DC as the head coach and an "exciting" or smart OC.

    I am happy for Wristen, but he either needs to move up to FCS, or take a job as a position coach at a BCS conference or coordinator at a mid-major FBS school before he should be considered for a FBS HC job.

    What is with the Stitt love. I get he is innovative, but his Mines teams are not that good are they?

    Doesn't Wristen have a little, um, baggage?

    If we are missing any potential candidates everyone should please feel free to create a new profile for them, just like in the recruiting forum.

    No.

    I respect Wristen, but this is the biggest hire in CU history. We simply cannot hire a DII coach.
