kansas state
chris klieman

this is a bond that has been forged in college football history

gene "the mustang" taylor is going to hire klieman again, as he did when he was the ad at ndsu when craig bohl left ndsu for wyoming in 2014.  taylor can point to klieman's 66-6 (yikes, the devil!) coaching record and natty champy trophs and tell everyone that his guy is a winner.  he knows klieman.  it's the easy path to take.  why make things harder than they need to be.

i'm sure that klieman, gene, and both the snyders, will get along just great as they build the future of k-state football.

we're k-state.  be happy with what we're given.

Before he forced out Bill I'd have expected this, but I think Gene has more balls than we thought.

Fifteen minutes later, when the Kansas locker room opened its doors to the media, the Jayhawks were still crying. Literally, bawling. All of them. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen devastated college locker rooms -- after losses in the Final Four, the national championship game -- ever

I don't even know how to pronounce that name. Klieman. Is it missing a letter or something?

Can someone photoshop Coach Kleiman's hat and jacket in the pic below so that they are Royal purple? That would be awesome!

serious question, has there ever been an FCS coach to make the leap to P5 and have any real success?

also, his salary at NDSU is apparently a paltry 300k. had no idea the gulf was so wide...

There are some good examples out there, but this guy doesn’t strike me as a future success story.

examples?

all i could find was Harbaugh going from university of san diego straight to stanford. every other example i've seen worked their way up through a "group of 5" type FBS school.

Jim Tressel, line one.

Tressel and Harbaugh. Big differences in the situations though - they were relatively local to the schools they took over. If Kliemann were doing what he's doing in Oklahoma or Texas he'd be way more intriguing.

ok, Harbaugh, Tressel, any others? i'm not necessarily doubtful, just genuinely curious because no others spring to mind.

Quote
Since 2004, 18 FCS, Division II or high school head coaches have been hired as the head coach of an FBS program. At their previous stop, those coaches compiled a combined record of 744-347, with a winning percentage of .682.

Promising resumes, however, have not always yielded continued success at a higher plateau. At their first -- and sometimes only -- FBS head coaching stop, that combined record dipped to 225-375 (.375).

keep in mind this is referring to all FCS to FBS hires, not just P5. also, this quote is from 2014, so there may have been some success stories since then, but still...

blackcats, would you say that klinemann will be more of a figurehead type coach with sean running the show behind the scenes?  or more of a puppet/puppetmaster type relationship?

my sources say Klieman is still in play............. I would be cool, but super worried about his recruiting pipeline......also, not sexy.

 One of the specific things I heard when Gene was hired was that he wouldn’t hire either of the coaches he hired at North Dakota State. In his words, they were very good fits in Nort h Dakota but he didn’t see their abilities translating to a place like Kansas State. We’ve seen Gen’s judgment proven correct at Wyoming. Unless something has changed drastically, we can shut this thread down. I surprisingly trust Gene to find the right fit for KState.
