Yes No Maybe


When searching for a new head football coach, schools have been showing more willingness to hire an up-and-comer like Tom Herman or P. Cheap Jerseys From China .J. Fleck, rather than a veteran with a long track record of success such as Les Miles.The average age of the head coaches hired by FBS teams last season was 43.2 years old, the youngest it has been in the past six years. Eight of the 26 new hires were under 40 at the time they accepted the job.In 2010 and 2011, the average age of the 48 coaches hired by FBS schools was a touch over 47, with a total of eight under the age of 40.People in the business of hiring coaches are hesitant to call anything a trend. Each school comes to the marketplace with different needs and criteria.The current climate leaves Western Michigans 35-year-old Fleck and Houstons 41-year-old Herman better positioned to land a major job than a potential Hall of Famer such as Miles. The 62-year-old former LSU coach won 77 percent of his games and a national title in 11-plus seasons with the Tigers before being fired in September.Daniel Parker, the vice president and managing director of sports for Parker Executive Search based in Atlanta, said potential is often more appealing to those hiring a coach than a long resume.Bringing in somebody thats got a lot of energy, thats going to change the program, recruit really well, work really hard, that does something for the fan base. It re-energizes the athletics department. Re-energizes the fans, Parker said.Miles told Sports Illustrated last week he has 10 or 12 years left in me. An out-of-date offense was a big part of why Miles was ousted, but he says he is willing to change and evolve his philosophies.Recent history suggests the demand for Miles could be limited.In 2010 and 11, four coaches who were at least 60 were hired by FBS teams, two each season. Since, Mike Riley, who went from Oregon State to Nebraska after the 2014 season, is the only 60-or-older coach to be hired as an FBS head coach.I think its going to be up to Les as to what hes interested in doing, said Jed Hughes, of executive search firm Korn Ferry. Hes been at a powerful school. Does he think he wants to be at that level or will he be satisfied with something a little less that would allow him to stay in a Power Five school but not have the same kind of aura and tradition that LSU did?Mack Brown was 62 when he was pushed out at Texas after the 2013 season. He also has Hall of Fame-worthy credentials, but his last few years with the Longhorns when he went 30-21 overshadowed his string of nine straight double-digit victory seasons and a national title at Texas. Former coaches such as Brown and Phillip Fulmer, who was pushed out by Tennessee after the 2008 season at age 58, end up being defined by their awkward exits instead of their long runs of success. Fans rarely want the coach some other school just discarded.Brown said he still has not ruled out coaching again, but he is not actively pursuing jobs.I do think so many of the athletic directors and presidents have to listen to their boosters and a lot of their boosters want whatever the hot name is not only this year but this week, Brown said.The job of major college football coach is increasingly becoming a 365-day per year gig. Recruiting never really takes a break. Recently proposed NCAA reforms to the recruiting calendar were made to acknowledge that schools are routinely offering scholarships to high school well before their senior seasons.I remember specifically one (older coach) said, `Dont hire me. Toledo athletic director Mike OBrien said. Meaning, dont hire someone of my age because I cant handle the 24/7 business of college football.The last hiring cycle also had the highest percentage of college coordinators and assistants with no head-coaching experience to become head coaches at Power Five schools since 2010.Five of the 12 Power Five openings went to assistants and none was older than 43. Most notably, Georgia hired 40-year-old Kirby Smart, the former longtime Alabama defensive coordinator and Georgia alum, and USC promoted former Trojans offensive Clay Helton, 43, after he served as interim coach.There are plenty of examples of these types of hires working out just fine. Bob Stoops was a 39-year-old defensive coordinator when Oklahoma hired him in 1999, and Mark Richt was 41 with no head-coaching experience when he became Georgias coach in 2001.Hughes said being a head coach has become more complicated since then because of the size and scope of the most prominent programs.I would make the argument that a Power Five high-profile program, hiring an assistant coach thats not a proven head coach is a major risk, Hughes said.Rick Chryst, the brother of Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst and former Mid-American Conference commissioner, said hiring younger head coaches is a byproduct of a different trend: Less patience by schools in a rush for success.You got some really good coaches who have cycled through once and are young enough to have another head job in them, Chryst said.One bad stint as a head coach is often hard to overcome.I had an AD tell me its all about brokering hope, said former Colorado and Boise State coach Dan Hawkins, who is working for ESPN and about to turn 56. If you go hire a guy thats never been a head coach he is a blank slate. So the fans and the media are all enamored with that.---Follow Ralph D. Russo at www.Twitter.com/ralphDrussoAP Cheap Jerseys Shop .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Cheap Authentic Jerseys . Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks. Last weekend at UFC Fight Night 32 my #TeamLynch got the best of #TeamJC by a score of 9-6. Let us know which side youre on for UFC 167 use the hashtag #TeamLynch or #TeamJC on Twitter. http://www.cheapjerseysstitchedshop.com/ . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. The Dallas Cowboys cleared a big obstacle thanks to Ezekiel Elliotts hurdle of a defensive back in one of the more impressive and perfectly executed decisions of Week 3.There was also a heads-up play by Packers returner Ty Montgomery and two calls that didnt work out so well: a special teams faux pas by the Colts that ultimately didnt cost them anything but a delayed celebration, and a tweet from the Houston Texans that opened them up to mocking from their fans for celebrating yards over points.Elliott, the Cowboys rookie running back, reverted to his high school state champion hurdling form when he saw Bears safety Chris Prosinski in his way in the fourth quarter of Dallas 31-17 win that snapped an eight-game home losing streak.Right away, Elliott figured hed leap his would-be tackler .Whenever you get a DB in the open field with that much space, hes definitely going to want to cut-tackle, Elliott said. I thought I might have to pull the hurdle out.Elliott picked up 14 yards on the play, helping him finish with 140 yards on 30 carries.Elliotts mother tweeted that her sons hurdling gene comes from mamma!And even though his father, Stacey, played football at Missouri, Elliott agreed that he got his athleticism from his mother, Dawn, who was a track and field star at that school.My mom is the best athlete in the family, Elliott said. Shes the reason I started to hurdle, actually. One year I quit my baseball team and so I had to run track. I was like I might as well try hurdles because my mom did it. I ended up being pretty good.As Prosinski can attest.SHARP PACKERS: Green Bay receiver Davante Adams suggested it was Ty Montgomerys Stanford smarts that helped him make a heads-up play against Detroit.You aint got to be from Stanford to do that, said Montgomery.Indeed, Randall Cobb is from Kentucky. And five years after Cobb pulled off the heads-up play on a kickoff, Montgomery followed suit Sunday. He wheeled around the pylon and stepped out of bounds when he saw an excellent Lions kickoff heading for the end zone.As the ball backed back to the 3, Montgomery reached for the live ball while keeping both feet on the sideline, giving the Packers 37 extra yards.Ingenious, said Mike Pereiira, football rules analyst for Fox. Wholesale NFL Jerseys. That makes it a kickoff out of bounds. Its a loose ball touching a player out of bounds.Cobb pulled off the trick on Dec. 23, 2012, when the Titans kickoff stopped just inside Green Bays 5-yard line.Montgomerys awareness proved crucial. The Packers went 60 yards to score and held on for a 34-27 win.COLTS BLUNDER : Leading 26-22 over San Diego, the Colts ran the clock down to 4 seconds. Chargers coach Mike McCoy chose not to have a punt returner, but to send 11 guys at Pat McAfee, who got off a quick pooch punt.The clock ticked down to zero, but one of the Colts picked up the football, drawing a flag that flummoxed the team and its fans who were already celebrating the Colts first win.What they should have done is surrounded it and waited for the officials to blow the ball dead. Then, pick it up and walk off winners, Pereira said.Instead, the Chargers were awarded an untimed down. But their last gasp didnt go too far, and all it ended up doing was delaying Indys celebration.You dont touch it until they blow it dead, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said in what will surely become a mantra at practice this week.MARKETING MAHEM : The week started with a 27-0 Patriots win over Houston. The Texans and area McDonalds restaurants have a promotion in which they give away six McNuggets with every purchase the day after a game in which the team rushes for 100 yards. And they had 109 against the Patriots, so the team reminded fans on their official Twitter account Friday morning to enjoy the free food.That met with predictable sarcasm from fans still stinging from the shutout, with one wondering if they could also get a shake because God knows Lamar Miller aint got any, and another asking if anybody was handing out free doughnuts -- you know, for the goose egg?---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---AP Sports Writers Mike Marot, Schuyler Dixon and Genaro C.
