KENT, Ohio -- The smile was broad on the face of Kent State's new head football coach, Paul Haynes as he was introduced today.
For all the names in the football coaching profession with Kent State on their resumes -- college and NFL -- Haynes is just the second asked to come back home and lead the charge.
"Any board that would ban 3yds is worthless"
so how long does he stay there
Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
4th tressel assistant to become a head coach. maybe his assistants werent so bad afterall
His defensive assistants were all pretty decent from what I remember. I have never been surprised at his former defensive coaches moving up the ranks.
That will probably depend on how well (or not well) he does. :)
Good for Haynes.
He didn't really do a great job at Ark, being on the defensive side. I think it was a raw deal for him to get that job, since it was a lose/lose for him. But we'll see what he can do at Kent.
lucky, from my vantage point, early on the assistants were good. At the end,what was left, not so much

How firm thy friendship O-HI-O
KSU is a good place to cut your teeth as an assistant.
Its not a high paying job, but they are very patient with their coaches, so you definitely have an opportunity to put your team and system in place.
As for Tressel, he was a control freak, especially on the offensive side of the ball. When asked if he'd delegate playcalling duties, he once replied "what would I do then?".
The biggest issue on this board with the assistants was always Bollman. The Oline routinely was subpar for an elite program like OSU.
Complaints about Fickell started, and rightfully so, when he took over.

I agree with you. Problem was that the one or two awful ones stuck around as glaring weaknesses. Heacock, Snyder, Dantonio, Spencer, Fickell, Haynes, etc were all great coaches. One or two like Bollman, the guy who coaches the anchor of the game, were just pathetic.

Both coaches introduced today, Paul Haynes at Kent State and P.J. Fleck at Western Michigan, thanked Jim Tressel for his help.
Hope Coach Haynes does good!
