RE: HC Rumors
Is this worth the risk for Lewis? financial of course. But it would just feel like Hazell leaving for Purdue, when he should of waited for the Wisconsin job.

RE: HC Rumors
I would think that Luke Fickell would be the pick if he wants it. It's a bad job in every way but money.

Several of the articles concerning Coach Lewis have stated that "Kent State has the worse facilities in the MAC". My question for the last several years we have played at least 3 money games while rest of the MAC as played 1 or 2. Where did this money go to if it wasn't reinvested in facility improvements?

RE: HC Rumors
How good is Kent expected to be next season?

Might have Lewis another year if a bowl is a possibility

Everyone can come back if they want. So I'd think as good or better than this year is a possibility.

RE: HC Rumors
I don’t see Fickell jumping on that at all, he’ll have better offers. I hope Lewis doesn’t entertain it either, he’ll cash in $ but for a job that just fights to stay out of the basement. Also noticed former Flash assistant Freeman mentioned.

RE: HC Rumors
Fickell makes too much (3.4mil thru 2026) for Illinois to steal him away. They would have to offer Harbaugh, Swinney, and Saban money to make it worth leaving. Lovie was making 4.5mil.

I just don’t see how you turn down Michigan State, have a great year and then entertain Illinois?!

Crum coming back leads me to believe that Lewis will be here next year unless something crazy happens.

RE: HC Rumors
Agree with all of the above. I said it would be Fickell's job if he wants it, but I seriously doubt he would want it. In fact, I'd be stunned if he wanted it.

If I were the Illini brass I would fear that my QB's will get massacred under Lewis' system in the Big Ten.

RE: HC Rumors
What are the expectations of the Illinois program? They can’t realistically expect more than becoming a 2nd tier Big Ten team anytime soon. I don’t see it as a particularly high-pressure situation. I wouldn’t blame SL if he was offered and jumped at the opportunity. If he makes them merely respectable, he’ll be the toast of Champagne. Yes, that was an intentional dad joke but my point remains.

They signed him to a six year contract. That seems pretty crazy to me.

Longtime Illinois fan here, since the late '60s. 99 is correct, Illinois has been down for a long time, and the expectations are not high. In the end, I believe hiring Lewis was a bit too risky for AD Whitman. I am glad Lewis remains, at least for now, at KSU.

RE: HC Rumors
I feel like another bowl game and/or a big time win will leave the program in good shape after he's gone. I don't want to be greedy, but I don't want to look like Summit County School after their run in the sun.

I would not at all be surprised if Lewis made a deal with Crum to stay.

RE: HC Rumors
That would make sense to do. If next years schedule holds its not an overwhelming ooc. They play Texas A&M, VMI, Iowa, and Maryland. A good showing against them and the same type of play in the MAC and his draft stock will rise. It will also help to have Lawrence, Fields and Wilson out of the way.

RE: HC Rumors
Safeties coach Will Windham has moved on to South Alabama.

I believe this is the first coach to have left on their own in two years.
