Kurt Ramler is the only possible candiate w/ direct SJU connections that meets every qualification listed.

As a former player, I think the top canidate would be Mike.  Not only did I have the privilage to play for him, but also got to play with Jimmy.  Back then we only had 4 coaches. John, Mike, Jerry and John Elton(former head wrestling coach).  John and Mike handled the O and Jerry and John handled the D.  My gut feelings are telling me that if Mike got the job, Jimmy would be out, which I think should have been done along time ago..The Alumni would love it and maybe dispell some of the fears of a current coach who was part of the latest downfall being stuck in the same rut.  Also, who knows the TC HS scene better than Mike? He's working on his 8th state title this Fri.  Had a conversation with another former player who spoke with Mike a couple of yrs back about if he could adjust from HS to D3...his reply was "it would be alot less work." Right now he is the Head coach, plus has I think 3(?) jv teams and is also the athletic coordinator, so all he would have to worry about at SJU would be coaching. I have nothing against Gary, I just think Mike would handle the pressure better of stepping into Johns shoes having lived in his fathers shadow all these years. IDK, maybe I'm a little biased, but whoever gets the job I wish them luck...

I think we need a coach that is prepared to put in a lot of work.

Faunch, I was trying to insunuate(sp) that Mike wouldn't, pretty sure he puts in a ton of work at EP, it's just that he would be able to focus that energy on one thing.....I don't think he would take this job lightly in the fact that he has alot of pride in being a Johnnie and alot of respect for the job John has done and would want to take the program back to being a perenial power....just my opinion, I could be wrong as I haven't spoken to Mike in a couple of yrs or been around him on a daily basis, but my prior experience with him is he wouldn't slack off.

Does anyone know what he has been doing for the past year? I did see he was a coach for the All-America Bowl in Mexico City in August 2012,but other than that I have not been able to find anything via Google searches.

Is it possible the university doesn't want too much change as in -not replacing the assistant coaches? I know that's a weird question but is it possible?

No, he's really been under the radar since leaving Carleton.  He was mentioned in Rajkowski's SJU chat yesterday, so I think Frank will hunt him down for questioning.  ;D

Yeah I read that comment about work more in the spirit of Gagliardi's when he took over St. John's and spoke about how happy he was that he wouldn't be coaching everything like he did at Carroll, although they did eventually add hockey.

For what it's worth, I also played at SJU for the two years that Grant coached there.  His two recruiting classes is what jump started this last great St. John's run.  Also, as a sidenote, he ran intersquad scrimages with the scout teams that were as close to live action as SJU could get in practice.  Point being, he may keep a lot of John's philosophy and style, but he's not gonna be his clone if he gets the job.

So, a guy named Wiener is against nudity in San Fran???  ;D

Wiener, the sponsor of the proposal, admits he was reluctant to take the step of banning public nudity, but that the issue has evolved beyond the presence of a few naked guys in the Castro and is a growing problem that generates more complaints from his constituents than homelessness or Muni.

I'm not trying to say that Mike wouldn't work hard.  My point is that SJU needs somebody that is going to out hustle and out work UST and others in the MIAC.  UST is winning before the first whistle of the season blows.  Grant, Fasching, Ramler can all coach...SJU just needs better players.

I checked out two of UST's "Futures Games" this fall.  Live, full contact scrimmages....SJU really needs to get back to doing these to help identify and develop talent.

Searched for him on Facebook...he has mutual friend so his profile popped up.  Looks like he's spent some time at the beach and is enjoying being a "Citizen at life"

Didn't we also have an actual full contact scrimmage at the end of training camp? But as I remember, I think it was Tommy Rambolt who got hurt and John was all kinds of pissed so he was like "no more full contact scrimage....." Think that is how Pat Mayhew got the starting gig isn't it oldsju67?  Wasn't Tommy supposed to start that season?  20 some yrs ago is along time... ;D
