I really dont think Cowher will take it but it's definitely worth a shot to offer it to him. All he can say is no. Who knows, we may get lucky.

Quote :
"Additionally, allow me to share a little something more that I find interesting - BEFORE Chuck Amato was fired, I was told by someone connected to a big Georgia booster that Donnan had made reference to this booster of his interest in the NC State job. But, what was most interesting is that Donnan had added a statement that he (paraphrased) “would even do the job on an interim basis if that is what State wanted”.

At the time I heard this I found this unprompted reference to being an interim coach interesting. Considering where we stand today, I find this fascinating.

We all know that IF Bill Cowher was ever going to be named head coach in Raleigh that he would have to bring with him an experienced and highly-qualified COLLEGE staff. The two pieces of the puzzle that are going to be most vital for Cowher will be: (1) an assistant who can help him maneuver the college system and (2) a keen COLLEGE offensive coordinator.

Well…who does that describe? If Jim Donnan would be willing to be the Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator when Cowher arrives would you NOT want to take this package deal?

NC State fans who love what Paul Johnson did at the Division 1-AA level certainly can’t complain with this idea. Like Johnson, Jim Donnan also won a 1-AA National Championships and 2 Coach of the Year honors while successfully scaring the hell out of Division One teams at Marshall. He also succeeded on a much higher level at Georgia than Johnson has at just Navy. (Donnan was 40-19 overall and 25-15 in the SEC)

In addition to coaching at Florida State, Donnan was the Offensive Coordinator of Oklahoma’s high powered offenses from 1985-1989 when the Sooners won 49 games, including 27 straight Big Eight contests and the 1985 National Championship.

Donnan is currently a part-time ESPN announcer who is not going to get another Head Coaching gig unless he does something else first. Even if he only wants to use the interim job as a stage to get another head job then what harm is there? State would get one of the best head coaches of the 1980s and 1990s on our sideline who is obviously driven to succeed as much as he can with his opportunity. I’ve got no problem with that. If he stays then you get Donnan’s offensive success and knowledge of the college game packaged with Bill Cowher’s Super Bowl trophy and NFL success That ain’t too bad.

Again, remember that these suggestions are designed to be ‘win-win’ for all involved and:

are obviously based on a situation where Cowher is committed to NC State but the logistics can’t immediately come together

use Jim Donnan as a specific example that fits the proposed solution. There obviously could be many other coaches that also fit the solution.
"


This makes me go

^complicated scenario. What if Donnan takes us to a BCS bowl in 2 years?

The big question would then be:
Would the chin still step in?

as much as i'd love bill cowher and i love the fact that he wants to end his career coaching his alma mater, i find it hard to be upset with that situation.

IF these three variable are all true AND Bill Cowher would commit to be NC State’s Head Football coach starting in 2008, then why wouldn’t NC State consider an INTERIM HEAD COACH for 2007?

If Cowher truly wants the job and the problem is truly nothing more than logistics, then why wouldn’t NC State consider an INTERIM HEAD COACH for 2007?"



Donnan would only be the head coach for 1 year. It says Cowher would take over in 2008.

Ok

You guys and all State fans are fucking stupid if taking a random interim coach for next year while waiting for Cowher seems like a good idea.

I mean, beyond stupid, you guys are at a point where you better be tied up to a breathing machine. Why, if we were going to have an interim coach, would we have fired Chuck Amato.

OH THATS RIGHT

YOU'RE A FUCKING IDIOT

LIKE STATEFANSNATIONS

not to mention a big part of the point was to retain the suggested interim coach, something that i doubt they would want to do with Amato.

I dont think this Sandsanta kid knows anything about our coaching situation.

ANYTHING or ANYONE is an improvement over Chuck. Donnan as an interim would be WONDERFUL for this place as our offense would actually score, we would be respected, have a good team and finally be able to compete knowing soon the big man is coming in.

Anything is better than Chuck though THAT is why we kicked him to the curb because if there was another year of Chuck the donors were pulling funds, money would be gone and support for the team, administration and NC State as a whole would decrease at a tremendous rate.

THAT is why we got rid of Chuck and if you cant begin to understand that or why we needed to fire him then you may just need to look into treatment for downs.

"What’s your reaction to being at the top of the NC State search?
First of all, let me just say I have great admiration and respect for coach Amato and what he’s done since he went down there. I’m very flattered to hear some of the things that have been coming out, but I’m not a candidate. I have a job here and my focus really is on this job right here, so you can take me off the list. I am flattered. It’s a super program and I’m sure that they’ll get a very qualified coach who’s going to walk into a good situation"

Some of that is coach speak, though.

He said he hadn't been contacted about it. We all know that's untrue.

Still, We all knew this would likely be the result.

Time to move on.
