It's Leavitt
« on: December 25, 2015, 08:14:16 PM »
I've got an A+ source from Vanier saying that our HCIW is none other than Jim "Jimmy" Leavitt.
Welcome aboard, Coach!

I know this isn't the sexiest hire we could have made but he's a good man and nobody works harder.

Some bells cannot be unwrung, but what about the learning disability (poor auditory memory) that left him functionally illiterate and, until recently, able to read only at second-grade level?

By now everyone has heard the story about how he built USF from scratch and that they used trailers as offices, but no one talks about how those trailers were from special education classrooms that he attended classes in while in high school.  He totes them along with him wherever he goes.  This is hearsay of course, but at some point you can't deny the fact that people say things for some good reasons sometimes.  Like it or not.

Oregon: Defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt will make $1.15 million per year in a four year contract reports Andrew Greif of the Oregonian. No current Pac-12 assistants make over $1 million per year. Leavitt would owe Oregon a small buyout should he leave to accept any position other than as head coach at Kansas State which he could freely leave for.

I mean, there HAS to be a somewhat serious conversation going between Levitt and KSU in order for HIGHEST PAID COORDINATOR IN THE ENTIRE PAC-12 to bother to negotiate a buyout exception for only one school.  Right?!?

I mean c'mon.  There is a "thing" in place.  There has to be.

How much does Leavitt not jumping to K-State at the end of Snyder I? But we would get a better coach now, who maybe wouldn't have late season letdowns when he team lost to lesser opponents.

Before Bowling Green, Ruggiero was the quarterback coach at Kansas State and coached Josh Freeman to a first round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft. He also mentored Collin Klein who went on to be a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.

I vividly remember Ron Prince calling him the "quarterback whisperer."

You would think so. If not, he kind of looks like a dumbass for this getting out. I have a clause in my contract that says I can leave to be CEO of Apple.

I'm kind of surprised Oregon hired him given his age, Snyder's age, and this clause in the contract.

This is a significant and excellent way of looking at this, Fan.  That really IS a head scratcher on the part of Oregon.   OK, I changed my mind. Tthis makes me think the likelihood of Leavitt is low.
