    No more JUCO's from Kansas and California!
    Agreed! Local coaches push for players to avoid UL

    Manny Diaz would be awesome. But I'm being realistic. He is P5 bound. Orlando is a possibility and he has tremendous ties in SE Texas.

    It's all moot at the moment. But once it happens I think we will be alright. I'd also rather a HC for FCS than most P5 coordinators. If Ohio St can hire Tressle from Youngstown St, we can surely hire John grass or Mike Houston.

    Go to 247 recruiting website. Look at the top 100 recruits for Louisiana over the past few years

    I get it, we cant compete for the top 50, but we should compete for at least 10 of those prospects ranked #50-#100.

    Those bottom half kids are going to G5 school's out of state. We need a coach that can come in and create a desire for kids to want to play in state at UL

    When Florida St was irrelevant in college football (which wasn't all that long ago), I wonder if they looked at Florida and said "We can't compete for the top 50 kids in this state"...

    Bet Bobby never considered that logic a day in his life..

    I lean toward super stud FCS head coaches over P5 coordinators. P5 coordinators may look like hot shots on paper... but a lot their accolades are gained with a pantry full of top shelf athletes. We have to assess and recruit diamonds in the rough, and be best in class developmental staff. FCS programs know this better than anyone.

    I don't want to get too carried away with Louisiana ties. If a guy has a great reputation, local HS coaches will take interest. The issue is that he can't be an egomaniac that doesn't relate to HS coaches. If the HC isn't a local... we definitely need a couple highly regarded staff that are.

    John Grass and Mike Houston are excellent candidates. Houston has a $375k base through 2021. Grass has a base of $300k with a long term contract. It would cost us a little to get them out of their contracts... but either one is attainable.

    Exactly! Mike Houston has won with multiple different offensive schemes as well. Which, to me, means the guy can flat out coach and knows football.

    John Grass is cut from the same cloth as Bill Clark at UAB. They guy can coach and he wins. Plus he is already a household name within our recruiting footprint.

    Not sure who this John Grass is but based on what I've read we should be able to do much better than a someone who has only coached 3 years at the FCS level

    Houston had already been ranked before Oliver committed. UL has yet to be ranked in the Top 25.
