Athlon Sports ranking of MAC coaches
Ranked all 12 coaches. Rod #3, Candle and Solich ahead of him. Here is what they wrote:

3. Rod Carey, Northern Illinois

Carey has picked up where his predecessor Dave Doeren left off at Northern Illinois, winning 44 games over the last five seasons. The Huskies slipped to 5-7 in 2016 but rebounded to 8-5 last year and could be the favorite to win the MAC West in 2018. Carey guided Northern Illinois to three consecutive MAC title games from 2013-15, with a conference title over Bowling Green in 2014. Prior to taking over as the program’s head coach, Carey worked under Doeren as an assistant in 2011-12 and also had stops on his resume from Illinois State and North Dakota.

Can't win the MAC without a legit college QB. Let's see if/how Childers has progressed in the off season.

Yep besides recruiting a good qb / bad luck on injuries, clock management at times, preparing his team for bowl games, and his interviewing skills... he is great.

Some great trick play calling, too. A punter passing out of his own end zone is a classic.

All that matters is wins and running a clean program. Both of which Carey seems to have done an admirable job.

Don't forget how kind and gentle he is with his players and how he fosters great team camaraderie.

Not that Carey has done a bad job, he just could have done a better job. This team has had talent wasted.
