Be interesting to see the "why" this hire? Obviously not a red hot "up and comer". From his bio, more like a long timer D III. And not coming with fingers in/credentials in recruiting our prime recruiting grounds.
I think the why is because he's a helluva coach. Puget Sound's D was really good. As others have said, he did a good job at Oberlin. If you were the head coach at Oberlin, you can recruit Ohio, and that's a pretty important part of recruiting in the Midwest.
Here's the thing about the hot shot kids: they leave. They always leave. It's always greener somewhere else. They still want to be in the BCS. The money still matters because they're still broke from being a GA forever. You're not going to a sexy hire and have him stay for 5-7 years. And I don't think that's what Wabash wants or needs. It's a big deal for your program that your assistants are getting looks. That said. you need somebody that sees Wabash as a destination and not a stepping stone. I think y'all have got him.
