    and College head coaching/ recruiting experience.

    ummmmm….. stating the obvious at this time? Open the checkbook, quit messing around, and get a real coach that you can KEEP. This has gone on for 30 + years, time to get with the program.

    Unless you are going to go out and spend big bucks for a big name coach, how about Bob Nielson. The UMD head coach has been very successful with the Bulldogs, including the Division Two National Championship two years ago. I don’t believe there has been a more successful head coach in all of college football over the past few seasons. Check out his coaching record and you will be pleasantly surprised.
    If you don’t like the idea of Nielson, then pay Craig Peterson whatever it takes to lure him away from Boise State.
