    Word is... Scelfo went to the Tech interview in a UL loaner car... called Bustle and told him he was being offered more money by Tech... Bustle said he wouldn't match their offer... but Scelfo then told Tech we were indeed going to match their offer. Tech then upped their offer.

    Does the word... "classless" come to mind?

    What a Downer Re: Scelfo Fired at Tulane, misfired at UL, hired at Tech

    I assure you, Frank Scelfo is not a man of questionable character. Apparently someone didn't commit to him as he felt he committed to them.

    I'd love to hear your elaboration on this. From what I have heard/read, etc, he had accepted (verbally) the Cajun's offer, was already using the school' s loaner vehicle, and had delayed actually signing the deal (his request) due to his Tulane contract. Then he goes to Tech and further negotiates. This is definitely a "somebody done somebody wrong" song; and I don't think it was the cajuns. Hey, I've got no problem trying to negotiate the best deal possible; but when you say "done" and shake on it (or whatever), its done. Only thing I can see here is a lack of integrity from Mr Scelfo; and I'm glad we found out now, vice later in the process.

    Hey Frank,
    Thanks for letting this be the last thing you do before leaving Lafayette.

    Saban, you got the money and all the media attention. You don't need to go around making excuses for people who do not honor their agreements. If it indeed bothers you that much, go get some counceling.

    The bottom line is measured by wins and losses. Scelfo had years at Tulane as a loser. The Cajuns need to hire a winner, someone that has a record of scoring points and winning games. ( at any level ) Go Cajuns!

    Here is what Frank Scelfo's offense did while he was the OC:

    2006: 19 ppg
    2005: 21 ppg
    2004: 27 ppg
    2003: 28 ppg
    2002: 28 ppg
    2001: 29 ppg
    2000: 30 ppg
    1999: 25 ppg

    Tulane's problem wasn't offense.

    And you feel good that he got Tech to bid against Tech.

    That is the ultimate double cross.

    Tech had made their coordinator salaries public before they interviewed any of the potential OCs. The wisdom of that decision is separate issue, but Scelfo isn't being paid anymore than what had been published shortly after Dooley was hired.

    Better be careful... Dooley has a law degree... I would keep a very close eye on him. He does have a sweet wife, however (an OBGYN). If you get to know them, you are going to toss Derek and keep her.

    We need a lawyer to keep our doofus AD straight. I've heard great things about Dooley, sadly, none of them have to do with coaching. What he's accomplished so far with facility improvements is pretty amazing (750K to get our fieldhouse out of the dark ages). He seems to be surrounding himself with people who know the X's and O's that he may be lacking on. I guess we'll find out.

  15. Default Cajunbolg: Dollars speak loudly in Scelfo's reversal


      The UL message boards lit up when word spread that Frank Scelfo reneged on his acceptance of the Cajuns’ offensive coordinator post, mostly because he passed on UL to take the same job at Louisiana Tech.

    Scelfo had originally given UL head coach Rickey Bustle what amounts to a “verbal commitment,” a fact that was widely reported. The rest of the coaching staff knew Scelfo was headed to Lafayette, and Scelfo himself told a couple of well-placed UL boosters that he was “coming here to win.”

    That all changed in a hurry when Tech came in and started throwing money around. The Monroe News-Star reported that Scelfo’s salary with the Bulldogs was going to be $150,000.

    The rest of the story

    Default Could Scelfo hae gotten cold feet because of UL procrastination

    I checked to see when the former Tulane assistants started getting jobs at other schools. I wanted to see if there was any credence to UL waiting to hire Scelfo. I have to admit I was a little skeptical that it might have been a penny pinching ploy due to all the interim tags and the somewhat slow process in renewing some of the other contracts like Coach Hall’s for instance.

    So I said to myself if "any" of the other Tulane assistants hired on elsewhere (before Jan 1) my worst fears would prove true.

    Well I am happy to report it was not a money saving ploy to let Tulane pay Scelfo's last month while UL finished paying Christophel and co. Scelfo going back on his word was no due to UL procrastination.

    NONE of the former Tulane assistants signed with another team prior to Jan 6th and now less than a week later almost all have. Meaning they had jobs lined up but were held up for the same contractual reasons we were given.
