Got a hunch FITZ will be 100% right about Sean and 100% wrong a out Leavitt.

Coaching rumors   Reply
I want to emphasize that I still have no directly connected to football or athletics telling us Jim Leavitt is coming, but I now have heard from too many people claiming direct knowledge on the topic to not believe something is up. Who moves off the defensive staff is unknown, but I doubt anyone will be fired.

A source in the coaching profession has told us he believes Sean Snyder will move to coaching tight ends, replacing Ricky Rahne. If true, it may be possible that someone such as Mo Latimore is moving to an administrative role and creating space for Leavitt.

Take this for what you want, but we can get no direct confirmation on any of it.

Why would you want Del to move to an administrative position over some one on the defense? It wasn't our offense that held the team back this year. Plus there is already a position open on the offense for Beasley if Snyder wants him to continue with the team.

Re: Coaching rumors   Reply
I'm okay with Mo going to administrative level, and Leavitt coming in, no idea why Del is getting hammered here thought he's done a pretty good job with our QB's and offense.

Now i may get destroyed for this one, but Sean Snyder moving into the TE coaching position? Really? I'm sorry that makes me feel incredibly uneasy, i know he's been a great behind the scenes guy for us in the offices, but who here seriously thinks that's a good coaching move at all? I'm rarely critical of Snyder, but this just reeks of a little too much nepotism for me to really look past. Honestly, how long has it been since Sean actually coached a position or outright recruited players?

Since I'm routinely attacked for not wanting Jim Leavitt to be our next head coach, I thought I'd point it out.

Those who follow my opinions can rest easy.

Snyder and Dimel "run the offense" and Del could still help Qbs and gameplan from an administrative position. Jonathan would provide a younger face on recruiting trail and a guy that would communicate with Qbs that he understands what Snyder is demands and needs from them.

mywilly, while Sean has been an administrator, he has been heavily involved in on-field coaching during both of Snyder's tenures. He was essentially our special team coordinator for quite a few of those years. The guy knows football.

Not hammering Del. Rahne was the "young guy" on staff and it would be nice to replace that. Also helps to have a younger coach that players feel its easier to talk to

Del got a ton of 'potential' out of E3 along with a Conf. CC to boot. He did pretty amazing things with a slightly above average athlete with no arm strength in Coffman this year. Dude's alright in my book.
Sean Snyder, besides coaching some special teams. Meh. If you're gonna go out there with that one - a guy with limited coaching at the position, you might as well reach waaaay out there and get a guy who is personable to kids at their level. Rahne fit that mold. Sean, not so much.

Del knows quarterbacks and football. I hope he stays until Snyder is done.

On that note, I visited with a guy who played under him at Southwest Missouri State. He loved playing for him and went on and on about how Del knew more about the game than anyone he'd ever met.

Re: Coaching rumors   Reply
Beasley for Del Miller, ehh, not for sure. I'd be okay with it, but Miller has seen a lot more than Beasley and may need it to deveop the new QBs next year.

S. Snyder coming to coach TEs could be a good thing. Talk to an kicker of the last several years and you'll find out he is far from just an admin guy. Not a true position coach at this point, but is very involved for sure. And he's been around for a LONG time. Also very detailed like his father.

If it opens a position for Mo to retire and Leavitt to come in, then awesome. Especially remember that Dimel has put TE's in the league (the other Gronkowski the latest), so he can assist S.Snyder where needed, especially as the OC.

GREAT post Fitz!! Any ideas on timing? Anything about this after Jan. 10 info heard elsewhere on here?

Leavitt and Cosh are both LB's coaches.
You would think either could move to another position, but I don't think that either has coached a position besides LB's. And who steps aside for the other? Personally I want Leavitt on the LB's, not sure if Cosh could handle the change.
I'm of the opinion that if Leavitt comes, Cosh goes.

A small glimmer of hope has now been planted in Wildcat Nation for SOMETHING/ANYTHING to change on this current staff. At least there are enough of these "rumors" going around out there that it makes you believe a change is on the way in some capacity...especially on the DEFENSIVE side of the line. TNB

Its Leavitt!?!

I sure hope this is right. With a good DC that turns K-State in just a half-way decent defense, we will be able to win 7+ games next year. Without a defense, we won't go to a bowl game.

Eastern Kentucky W
Kent State W
@ Miami L but with a decent Defense, who knows? I'll have fun in South Beach either way.
Baylor W with an acceptable Defense
Missouri W (Gabbert is leaving for NFL)
@ Texas Tech L but possible W with an acceptable Defense
@ Kansas W
Oklahoma L
@ Oklahoma State L
Texas A&M L but possible W with an acceptable Defense
@ Texas W
Iowa State W

Del does not have a good QB record. 2003 back-up to Ell sucked. 2004 sucked. 2005 sucked. 2009 sucked. 2010 sucked until last 3-4 games.

i don't really know either. i think i should want a change regardless, but i just don't. still have some warm feelings for that crafty sob i guess.

my thoughts are- if you have someone that i think is good and is already signed up then you get rid of the current staff. if you don't have that person lined up, then i guess i just don't really care. hiring his son would probably tip the scale for me though.

I would say that there's about a 60% chance that our next coach actually performs worse than Snyder/Prince. Maybe I'm being unfair to Curry/Schultz here, but it's just hard for me to be optimistic.
