Post Crystal Ball: Rest of Season & Beyond

Let me first say I'm rooting for Coach Chamberlin. UD football is more "labor of love" than "fame and fortune". As far as I know, he has represented us well and developed hundreds of fine young men. Coach Kelly was 6-4 in '98-99, and 4-6 before retirement.

That said, Coach Chamberlin may be the first to admit this season has been disappointing. We need to win out to finish 6-5. Coach will be 61 in April. I bet Neil Sullivan has a succession plan. Was Coach at any risk after consecutive 6-5's in 2012?

An occasional Jim Harbaugh may stop by the PFL for a cup of coffee, as he did in San Diego. But it takes a special breed to be more than a stepping stone.

For comparison, here are Kelly & Chamberlin's records (whoever did the media guide can't add -- currently in 10th season):





Here's a list of current PFL coaches -- UD stacks up well. Mike Minter (NFL) at Campbell is interesting, but they're moving up to Big South.

Many elite non-scholly coaches are alumni, like Joseph Smith at D-III Linfield (OR):

Kevin Bullis is off to a strong start at UW-Whitewater (not alum):

here's some PFL attendance figures showing UD below average -- sure wish we had an intimate, historic on-campus stadium. any word on future lacrosse shared facility?

Hiring Anthony Grant or Shauna Green is one thing, but where do you go for football candidates? Could certainly promote from within. To me, D-II/III partial or non-scholly experience makes sense. Maybe you could find a Frank Solich who's continuing at Ohio for "love of the game".

Discuss ... go Flyers!
