    Good luck Coach! You did a great job while here and we won't forget your contribution in helping turn our program around. Lots of critics on RP, and a couple sometimes sound like they know a little about college football, then you got several wankers.

    You are always welcome in Cajun country.

    If we were to need a HC for whatever reason in the comings years, I would hope Jay Johnson would be in the list of interviews.

    Best of luck to coach Johnson, it sounds like a dream of an opportunity.

    In the (recent) past I've questioned Johnson's ability with our offense, now I'm wondering if perhaps his hands have been tied down. One thing is for sure, we will see what he is capable of. I'm hoping we won't be sitting here in another year thinking about what could have been...

    -So who is the new guy---Gautier comes from LSU!!! Kidding but I would think that the $250K salary would interest quite a few up and coming along with oldie but goodies---Think that we would choose a guy who has pulled the trigger from the top spot in the offense!!! Carl Smith returns to Lafayette

    Finishes with a Super Bowl win and almost 20 years as a coordinator and QB coach with retirement money

    --What about promotion from the current Offensive staff??? They have been together for 5 years with some good success

    Would the OC also be the QB coach---Will some coaches be let go??? Let the post begin!!! LOL

    Jay Johnson was a great guy and a very good offensive coordinator. He will do a tremendous job wherever he ends up. He is not only going home but working his way up the coaching ladder. I remember not so long ago we could not get a coordinator with FBS coordinator experience. I still feel he would be a good choice here as a head coach if Hud decides to leave. I view this as a very positive event that shows young up and coming coaches that you can come here, learn and move up the coaching tree.

    Hud is never going to decide to leave UL. He's a lifer, and in all probability will get fired in year 8-11.

    This past season was probably the difference between Jay Johnson getting a head coaching gig somewhere and a lateral albeit upscale conference move to Minnesota.

    I have a feeling he would have been gone either way.

    In 2014 Ragin Pagin spends an entire season calling UL's DC garbage and he gets a big promotion to an NFL team.

    In 2015 Ragin Pagin spends the entire season calling UL's OC garbage and he gets a big promotion to a Big Ten school.

    You guys have the magic touch around here.

    I'm pretty sure there were several members on here saying that JJ was not our problem.

    He sticks to the narrative man. He'd tell you the sky was purple if you gave him the time of day.

    Mega Ditto, JayBird! Really on both sides of the ball if you look at things, UL brought back only 4 starters each side. Then promptly throughout most of the season had one season ending injury after another to the starters! In steps 2's and 3's, and swapping players out of their normal positions to fill in where another man just went down! Tuff to coach with that many injuries, injuries UL did not see this many in the first 4 years combined! Just saying!

    I was wondering the same thing. After meeting with OC Johnson, Haack decides to transfer...coincidence? Maybe, but Haack decides to transfer after meeting with Johnson who is leaving for another OC position with a team that uses a more traditional drop back passing QB. Again, maybe a coincidence. We will see. In the meantime, I wish both the best of luck and thank them for their time here. They gave 100% of their heart and effort for this program to succeed.

    From The Advocate:

    "I've had a great, great four years," Haack said. "There's not one thing I would change about my experience. I met a lot of great people, met a lot of great fans, great friends, memories that I'll have for a lifetime. There's nothing about that that I would change.
    "This could possibly be my last year of football in my life. I really want to take it to heart and succeed for my last year."
    Haack made the decision shortly after meeting with Cajuns offensive coordinator Jay Johnson last week. In that meeting, Johnson laid out the Cajuns' plan for the 2016 season and Haack said "it just didn't look promising."
