    We can not stand to lose a coordinator from a team that went 3-6 in the conference. There is no telling to what depths we might sink.

    Uh. Dungy made his name in coaching on defense. We want Marc Trestman!

    Clay Patterson looks like a good candidate and -may- be a better recruiting personality based on nothing other than what few interviews and twit posts I’ve seen. Patterson’s coaching background is encouraging. Change is inevitable so if Ciarrocca is actually leaving have to hope the offense gets even better and more innovative next season.

    Conspiracy theory with nothing to offer as proof: Clay Patterson was hired, Fleck liked what he saw and heard from this innovative offensive mind, began using Patterson's ideas more than KC's ideas, KC saw the writing on the wall, and bolted. Plausible?
    One little problem with that: it’s a lateral move at best - he might not be calling plays and one tweet stated he might be a co-offensive coordinator. If it was the head coaching gig, you pat him on the back and use that as promotional material for the next man up.

    Maybe Kirk told PJ he’d give him one more year and then start looking around, get more exposure, more varied experience that could help him keep moving up the ladder.

    So PJ went after Patterson with a promise of a likely promotion in a year

    You know, when they hired Patterson, I too thought it odd. Good angle. I'm buying it.

    If KC leaves, I am not concerned in the least. There are so many young, dynamic, hungry coaches that would salivate to inherit this kind of talent. Hope KC stays if PJ wants him to stay. If not, Gophers will be just fine.

    All this coaching turnover is just part of Fleck's Master plan.

    He could coach D line help with linebackers. Schiano good football coach. I would not blame Fleck if he hired him, Schiano is a good football coach.

    Yeah. His defense at Ohio State this past season was awesome.

    If K.C. leaves, I hope we actually looK at options before hiring. I like what Rossi was able to do at the end of the year, but it strIkes me as odd that we didn’t take a look at what happened around the country after the season. There has been a lot of movement with high quality DCs that could have been better hires. Not saying they would have been, but surprised we didn’t look seriously at options there, and if K.C. leaves, I hope we look at options. Then again, a couple of moves make more sense of K.C. leaves as others have pointed out.

    If we want to fix what happened, you need to fire Coyle and Kaler as well.
