2. Rob Koll

3. Mark Branch

Cons: Virtually no FS career, very little head coach experiance

4. Mark Neumann
Pros: Established head coach credentials, Ex-Sooner asst, decent OK connections
Cons: May like it where he's at better

5. Rob Waller
Pros: De facto coach today, son of a coach, good OK connections
Cons: Virtually no FS cred. Not a particularly stellar college career

6. Terry Brands
Pros: Iowa intensity, good career in college & FS

Some young guys maybe. Hartung should be on a radar... Marty Morgan...

What about Bono leaving UTC

I would Hire Johnny Johnson.. Has OK ties, was a great assistant at MN and has done good with Stevens point and the WI Jr. Program..

Also, consider Kevin Black.

I don't think that Bono would be a good fit ... heck he ran UTC down in less time than it took Brands to build VaTech up.

You may want to move TB up on your list, at least that's the rumor down here.

Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

He's definately an overachiever as a coach.

I'd like to see someone with a better FS background and someone that local coaches and wrestlers are familiar with.

I think that for everything that Borelli brings to the table, Koll brings more.

There's one guy out there that OUGHT to be on this list, but the perception is he just cant get along, and thats Mark Schultz. Its a pity too, because it looks like he did a decent job at BYU. His back maybe just too damaged to be an effective coach as well.

I thought he went back to Minny for financial reasons/business opportunity.

Troy would be very good but I'd like to see him stay with Z for a bit longer and get that program to the top.
