Figured it would probably make sense to give this its own thread. This process may take a few weeks or a few months, but those of you who are in the know will no doubt hear things.

Some of the top candidates with Lafayette connections:

Loose - Long time LC defensive coordinator. Left for his current position as Safety Coach at Army. No head coach experience

Troxell - 10 year DIII F&M head coach with a 65-60 career record as head coach. Past LC assistant and special teams coordinator

Heffner - Current Northwestern H-Backs coach and former LC offensive coordinator and offensive line coach and former Maryland OC

Partridge - Current Michigan LBs coach and recruiting specialist and previously a high school coach in NJ

Dave Cohen - Currently the DL coach at Wake Forrest with HC experience at Hoffstra, and stops at LC, Fordham, Delaware, Wester Michigan... (probably not realistic. Would need too much $$$ unless they don't return the staff at Wake).

Matt Hachman - Long time LBs coach under Loose before taking the DC job at Townson. Has been there since. He was the much beloved "hammer" on the multiple championship staff.
Other guys with Lafayette ties, but probably not enough experience:

Ian Dell - LC alumn and current LC defensive line coach. Previous at Moravian. Could be brought back in staff depending on the new HC.

Marvin Clecidor - Lafayette alumn who is the current DBs coach at William and Mary. Previous stops at F&M, Rutgars, and Monmouth (my darkhorse for DC if Loose or Trox get the nod)

Justin Stoval - Former LC captain now the current LBs coach and special teams coordinator at Columbia. Previous stops at F&M, LEHIGH, Nova, and Valpo

Chad Walker - LC alumn who recently resigned from his postion as the head coach at Pace after several disappointing seasons. Spent time in the European pro leagues and as an LC assistant

Mike St. Germain - LC alumn and current VMI assistant and recruiting coordinator with stops at F&M, LC, and Virginia

Tony Caljean - LC alumn and current Ursinus assistant and special teams coordinator. Previously at F&M

Anyone else I missed? There are also possibilities that this administration goes with someone who has no ties to LC at all. If that is the case this list will be very different.

Damian Wroblewski- Current OC at Elon.  Former OL coach at Rutgers, and former OC and assist HC at Delaware under Keeler.  99 Lafayette grad, and probably one of the best OL ever to play at Lafayette.  He would certainly make our OL better!

It's Mark, and he is a really good coach.  He was the DC at Nova when they won the title, but he removed himself from the conversation when he want to be a high school coach in my opinion.  He stated publically several times he got tired of the college coaching grind and made the move and seems really happy.

Reardon took the 1st train out of Easton when Frank was hired way back in the day.

Not sure where I heard it, but I thought him and Loose were close.

Shoot, if Trox can get a look at 65-60 over 10 years what about my boy Duke Donnely!? The winning-est coach in the valley right now with a 131-72 record over 19 years with the Mules.

Not really being serious, but he is a great coach year in and year out.

Don't care at all if the new HC has LC connections... it may even be for the best if the new guy has none.

We could draw up some criteria... coach with experience in:

- Recruiting with athletic scholarships
- Academic-focused environment
- Assistant at a successful program in FBS or high-profile and proven track record in FCS
- Won a championship
- Coached All-Americans
- Innovative
- Personable and proven to engage with alumni
- Willing to get paid around $250K

John Troxell or Dave Cecchini for head coach.

Phil Stambaugh for offensive coordinator.

Tim Moncman for defensive coordinator.

Dare we think it???

You want fresh blood. There it is.

Why are so many in favor of Troxel? I know he's a homeboy and all, but his record at the DIII level isn't all that good.

Also, nobody who ever had anything to do with Lehigh ought to be considered. Rolling Eyes

Coaching circles are saying Trox is the front runner.

I will never say anything negative about Trox, but I am concerned that he never coached at a scholarship program. He spent his whole career at the Ivy, Patriot (pre  scholly) and D3 level.  Our largest issue I think was finding and developing players, and managing a smaller roster.

Rumor is that Rocco from Richmond may be heading to Delaware, and the Bryant job is also open.  Wrobo may be very interested in Bryant as he is from RI and coached there way back in the day.

Troxell 's record is 32-17 over the last 5 years.  Not too shabby

I'd be willing to start the Cecchini bandwagon.

During the basketball halftime interview Bruce McC went out of his way to put an emphasis on candidates with Division I and scholarship recruiting experience. That would seem to rule out Troxell.

Cecchini has spent most of his adult life hating Lafayette. I don't care how much of a wunderkind he is. I don't want anything that arose from the slime.

Cramsey is like Cecchinini only better.  Both are QB driven offensive coaches.  I know Chick has been a head coach, but Cramsey has been an FBS coordinator and ran the show at Montana State.  Cramsey brings everything Chick dies without the Lehigh baggage.

His bio touts his recruiting coordinator experience/success at LC, particularly the Class of 2005.  To me though, naming a D3 would be a disappointment.

Tim Cramsey seems better and better with every new thing I read about him.  Presumably he already knows plenty about Lafayette.

Moncman coached at Lehigh for a while - but I don't question his Leopard pedigree. Jill Redfern jumped from Lafayette to Lehigh and the women's lax team is still suffering. I know there are plenty of other examples. Baseball coach Joe Kinney?

"If you can coach, you can coach" - I'm not swayed by the fact the Cecchini caught about 1,000 yards against us in the early 90's.
