Just had a few guys in the profession text me. Interesting. I wonder if the consultant was hired with this in mind, and the search will be part of the duties?

John Loose
The coach at St. Francis
Tim Cramsey
Drew Folmar (may be heretical, but kinda makes sense)

I'm throwing his name into the ring, and I know it's a hail mary as he is an up and coming FBS coach.

Not sure if Chris is very fond of Lafayette any longer, but as you state a long shot.  Chris is more of a recruiter/motivator than scheme guy, but he is relentlessly positive and recruits his butt off.  I think he will stick to Harbaugh as long as he can, but his name will certainly come up.

We have no details, but given his comments after the Lehigh game it was not his decision.  I assume he recieved some sort of parting gift as well.

If true, hopefully Frank will gracefully leave, not be kept around in some other capacity to "earn" his salary.

The million dollar questions......do we have candidates identified, can we make a hire in Dec/early January, which recruits are at risk

I think Folmar is very interesting.   It would definitely create a lot of buzz for game 153!   He knows the area, he probably knows all the recruits, and he has seen the blueprint of a program that has been very successful over the last 30 years.    

Would love to get Loose, he is exactly the type of coach I think we need.

Cramsey is probably the heir apparent at UNH.   Not sure you will be able to get him

Not sure why Villareal would want to come to the PL.   A step up, yes, but.....   his next logical step is either CAA or DI assistant

Partridge I just don't see.    Essentially hiring a high school coach, and one that was able to recruit and beat public schools.    Don't think you can give him much credit for Jabrill and Gary

I'm going to keep throwing up hail mary's.

What about Heff? Would he leave Northwestern to come build us back up or is it too much too late in his career?

Also what about Troxell at F&M, I just wished we go with something that has a dominant winning background, or is at least proven.

Let us hope Lafayette's search extends beyond their campus?  I will be mighty disappointed if their new HC is an existing coordinator.

Trox is a great guy and a really solid coach, but he has been in D3 for a decade.  I really think we need someone accustomed to recruiting scholarship players, and building a roster at the FCS level.  I know that technically eliminates Loode, but he is sort of a special care.  Can't see Heff leaving northwestern.

Heff isn't going to happen. He makes too much and is not in a position that has any real responsibility at all. He has the best retirement job there is. No way he leaves to work this hard to rebuild from scratch.

I love Trox, but he has spent he carreer with non-scholarship football. He is a good coach, just not what I think Lafayette needs right now.

Loose would be a great fit, and it would be interesting because the last of the players who would know him are the 5th year guys. He would be a fresh face to the rest of the team. But does he want to get back into all of the issues he knows he will face?

I agree that Partridge is probably a non-starter. No college coordinator experience, and probably making too much at MU.

Names I haven't heard are Mike Feragali who was the OC under Frank with Heff. He left and won a national title with Richmond. Now he is the OC at Norfolk State. Spent the last 10 years in VA so may not want to move.  And what about Matt Hachman? He has been the DC at Townson since he left Lafayette.

Do we think this job could pull a coordinator from a competing school? Will we even go after those guys?

Do we have anything beyond the three lines in Footballscoop?

Is this site credible?
