    Ron Crook’s departure leaves Hologorsen with staff option
    Was Crook fired or did he want to go? His contract runs out next month and was not renewed per the article, I feel like our Oline underperformed this year, was the weird split responsibility for coaching the line an issue? Seems strange a WV guy would want to leave WVU for Cinci in the same job.

    We talked about it some here: Ron Crook leaving


    I like the Wickline hire but at the same time we may well have lost TWO coaches by hiring him.

    Had Dana moved Lonnie Galloway to OC then he is still here imo but instead he hires Wickline to coach line and OC then it effects Crook too :noidea:.

    Tough to argue hiring Wickline though, he has been involved in some fantastic offenses and he has worked with Dana before so I'm sure he's comfortable working with him, he is certainly more decorated than Crook OR Galloway so.. The question now is what/who does Dana hire now? QB coach (likely imo) ? Special teams coach that is also a good recruiter(oh please yes)? With the recent QB situations I have to think QB coach is at the top of the priority list, now who that might be...could be a promotion as the article mentions, could be Spav, could be Ole Dimples Dawson...who knows for sure?

    The very same, who knows , maybe if he stays put and doesn't take the OC job at corruptionville his rep doesn't get tarnished:noidea: but.... that didn't happen.

    Love to see Dana hire a new coach that is Lonnies equal on the recruiting trail. If UL does cut ties Dana should do whatever it takes to get him back here imo.
