Hire Mark Staten. I love Miami like we all do. I respect coach Martin and all the players. But the facts are the facts. The results are the results. For some reason we can’t get it done despite the support/physical facilities. Change is what we need...period.

  • We've gone down the Miami grad/Michigan State assistant route before, it didn't work out so well.

    So everyone that went to Miami and spends time at MSU is suddenly an invalid like Treadwell? I'm not saying anything of Staten's qualifications, but it's a silly way to look at things.

    Ahhh. Yes Mr Treadwell....who hired Treadwelll?? I knew Treadwell and Staten is no Treadwell. Just because Treadwell was at MSU, and Staten is at MSU in my opinion, means nothing. I am taking the high road. Staten is the charismatic recruiting coordinator. I played with Staten. I did not know Treadwell or play with him. But fact of the matter is yes Treadwell was not a good coach based on data/results. I am sure he was a good man. All I am saying is Staten is younger. More charismatic. He can relate to recruits better and has what I think it takes to be successful. I played at Miami between 86 and 90 and lettered all years. My name is Tom Fischer # 97 and all I want is to win just like all of you do.

    Poor wording on my part. It shouldn't disqualify him by any means, but the reality is that those connotations will probably mean we look elsewhere for the sake of variety. A Notre Dame assistant sounded good after Haywood, but doesn't sound so hot now due to Martin even if that's unfair.

    Agree, I know and played with Mark as well.
    Miami should have hired Staten earlier. He has the connections, the charisma, and the skills to get the job done. Pay him well and give him enough money to hire a solid staff and Miami can be relevant again. Facilities are great now, but that does not always create wins.

    I wouldn't immediately disqualify someone because of it, but the Dantonio coaching tree is full of duds. All three of his assistants who have gone on to be head coaches have been failures. Enos 26-36, Treadwell 8-21 (not including the 7 losses after he was fired), Narduzzi 23-20 (and he might not win another game this season). That's without even getting into some of the off field issues that team has had recently. That would give me pause before I try to tap that well again.

    No idea who we need. What I do know is year 5, a senior laden team, 1-4 record. Not acceptable. I hope Sayler has a list of good candidates already put together. If Staten is on it great. Don't exclude any school just because a past failing coach came from there. By that logic we now would have to exclude Notre Dame as well. All I know is I am tired of losing.

    With the mess MU has now, we might even need someone like a Jim Tressel to temporarily turn this mess around. I think his show cause is up this year. I think it was from 2013-2018. Budget would not work most likely.

    He may want to coach again, tho....not sure a big time program will take on that baggage so maybe we would have a shot.
  • NYCRedHawkNYCRedHawk Off-Campus Slummer
    He would never leave Akron, he’s the president there, a job I think he probably desires more at this time than coaching
  • Why would he leave being a university president to coach football again?

    He's at Youngstown State.

    My bad I thought he was at Akron still. He was Vice President at Akron for something before he left for Youngstown.

    I'll chime in...I think we should seriously look at Les Miles to be our Solich.

    Miami's gonna have to go back to natural grass as a playing surface.  The Hat loves to gnaw on the turf.  

    But I love this idea about Miles!

    Tom Amstutz. He may still be alive, not sure. But a dead Stutzy outcoaches a live Chuckles anyway.

    I nominate my son's 7th grade football coach.  He has the team at 5-1 right now, averaging over 30 pts per game and my son's defense is only giving up about 12 pts.  Plus, the coach played at MIAMI!!    :)

    Whoever was runner-up when Sayler hired Martin, that's who I want!

    You want Klacik?

    I think it was DJ Durkin, currently on administrative leave at Maryland for having a player die this summer...so I guess you could say we'd be buying low.

    We need a new coach.  Talking names of older coaches looking to patiently turn around a historic program.  Want a Miami Man.  There is only one name folks.  The one you think of when you think Miami Man.


    DON SHULA.  Get him Sayler!
