You don't turn around an injury riddled team, they healed and played the next year. That's not on his coaching. Kill wasn't horrific, but he wasn't anything like he thought he was, an he acted like an ass during games.

Coach Doeren was needed to get over the hump. NIU wouldn't have won championship without him. Best in game coach we have ever had

We won that MACC the year after Kill left because of sheer will & determination ...Chandler Harnish would not let it end any other way. He led our team to that championship & Dave Doeren was basically along for the ride. Just my HO ...but I was there. I saw it happen. Same as with the bowl game we won that year. Skeleton coaching staff with Tuke & grad assistants but a very very determined QB & team.

No way HFA, I just cannot go along with that. Huskies do not win that game without Doeren. Best in-game coach at NIU, probably ever
That's impossible to say who the best in-game coach is. Doeren did benefit from inheriting very good players, but his teams always seemed well prepared and he got the most out of them. I didn't question many of his decisions and never felt like he was out coached. He looked and presented himself as a major college coach and it seemed like everyone had respect for him. If I had to choose from any of the NIU coaches since 1981 to coach the Huskies in a big game, I would choose him. I really liked Novak and Mallory, but he took the team to the next level on the field. I wish he would have stayed for the Orange Bowl.

Coach Tuke was amazing that year. I have not checked recently on his level of success at SE Missouri State but I do hope he has a long and successful career. Could not root for his success at Toledo though.

SEMO went 3-8 last year including losing 5 of last 6. They are 0-2 so far this year including a loss to Non Scholarship FCS Dayton. If he doesn't turn it around soon, he won't have a long career.

I'd take a vacancy in the head coaching over Carey so that isn't saying much

Compher was a lazy sack and stuck us with Rod Carey on his way out. Lazy hire.
