Bummer. Sounds like Coach Michalczik is moving on...

...to Oregon State according to FootballScoop. I think he took our OL to a new level this year without a lot of top flite talent.

This will be a big hire for Rich. Hope he lands another good one.

We shouldn't be losing coaches to Oregon State, but maybe he's got family up in that part of the country. I'm no expert, but I think Michalczik did a good job with the line. Hope this doesn't hurt things in the bowl game or with recruiting the big boys.

He's from the NW, played OL at Wazzu and.... was a coach on Jonathan Smith's teams when Smith played QB at OSU in the early 2000's. There's the missing link right there. Sometimes it's not necessarily WHAT you know, it's WHO you know.

Rosenblatt mentioned Glenn Parker as a possible replacement.

Yep. Plus, it sounds like they're making him a Co-OC which probably means a slight raise. Glenn Parker, anyone?

He did a really good job coaching guys up. I have to wonder if the recruiting was more him or more richrod? I don’t like that we haven’t been recruiting more o line men. Hoping we can get a coach that can do both, recruit and coach em up. Sucks to come at this time when we look a little thin for next year. Need to get a hire soon to preserve the recruits.

I think Glenn Parker would be a great hire. Not only is a Wildcat, he spent more than 10 years in the NFL. That holds a lot of H2O when you're sitting in the living room of a potential recruit.

The only thing is I don't think he has any coaching experience. Does that matter?

it looks like he has been on staff as an analyst if that means anything. Would love the hire. Now just need to get Chuck on board as a coach.
