Frank Solich




I've read all the suggestions people have had for head coaches (Stitt, Ambrose, Smart etc) and I just want to throw a name out there that no one has mentioned: Frank Solich

The man went 58-19 at Nebraska and got fired because apparently going 10-3 in his final season wasn't good enough for Nebraska. The Huskers have proceeded to fall way off since his termination.

After Nebraska he went to Ohio. His record there is, on the surface, a pedestrian 65-47. If you dig deeper, however, you'll see that Ohio was essentially hot garbage before he got there. He took them to their first bowl game since 1968! He's since taken them to 5 bowls in 8 years and is 6-4 this year, so assume it'll be 6 in 9.

Maybe he's not the most exciting name out there and maybe he's too old to be a serious long term solution, but the man is a proven winner. Not only that, but he clearly has midwest ties and, like it or not, that is going to be one of our primary recruiting areas going into the future.

Who's with me? I say we get the Solich train going! We can bring him in to fix our problems for a few years and make us at least respectable, forget unproven guys like Stitt. Give him 5 years or whatever and then look for a long term replacement when we're a much more marketable and successful program.

SOLICH, SOLICH, SOLICH!
