You take a lot of shots at his head coaching ability. If he was so bad, how many years do you think PJ should have before he tops Claeys' 9 win season. Claeys was awful, so that should be pretty easy, right?The greatest DC ever and head coach extraordinaire? Impossible.
Pretty sure it came out that Coyle was planning on firing Claeys all along since day 1 but when they beat Northwestern for their 8th win, they decided they couldn't fire him. But then the whole scandal gave them an excuse.I was told that Claeys was fired here because of the scandal, and because he made the administration look bad when he backed the player revolt against the EOAA.
Now it sounds like some people are saying Claeys is actually a terrible coach.
Hmmmm... which is it? And how the heck did such a poor coach win 9 games in a season at Minnesota, where 9-win seasons are pretty rare?
Responsibility?

Yeah...I’m basically over rooting against former coaches (besides Brewster) and don’t get why people dislike Claeys.Too bad. I like Clayes and think he is a good DC. I hope he gets another shot. Wish him nothing but the best.
