Is this just coming from this thread?  If so....ummmm...I would hold off on making any judgements as to what exactly is going on based on this thread.

No, this is coming from people around the program. Right now it looks as though Dawson is going to be the only hire. And then what those close to the program are hearing is that we will be hiring ST through some what of an analyst position as it will not be part of Dawson's duties. The ST hire is what's holding everything up

I saw on another board Sean Callahan said no Joesph. I’m just gonna assume we hire Dawson and nothing else exciting goes down. We’re the kings of a ton of noise and little substance.

Still hoping this happens. 
Even some Duck fans believe that the issues he had were more the fault of Chip Kelly (had an 18 month show cause on him) :

I thought that the Ducks were extremely potent when he was the head guy.  Look at who they had when he was the head guy:

  • DeAnthony "Black Mamba" Thomas
  • Royce Freeman
  • Marcus Mariotta
  • Justin Herbert

Dude was 37-16 in 4 seasons up there.

Two conference championships.

A trip to the Natty.

 

As an assistant in the NFL - his first year, he had the 11th ranked offense in the NFL.  Trubisky and Cohen both made the Pro Bowl that year.

 

Tell me the guy wouldn't be a welcome addition....?

 

P.S. - We gotta stop missing on guys here, and skipping over some obvious good choices.

 

This one stills stings, as I'm a huge fan of the guy:  https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2297257-nebraska

 

Coach O was here.  Guy was passed over, went home, his head guy got fired, he takes over, and all that guy did was have a player win the Heisman, win the SEC, and is making Gumbo with a Natty ring right now.

Going 11-2 as a top ten team, then making it to the national championship game, then having a respectable 9 win top 20 season, then one really bad year is a hell of a way to flounder. Maybe the second best to ever do it behind Solich :lol:

Like Solich, he did it with another guy's players with a foundation already set.  Once the foundation changed, so did the results for both guys.

He didn't call the plays for the Bears.

Mickey Joseph's arm, or lack thereof, turned a sweet, kind hearted Oregon high schooler into the pottie mouth he is today. &**# you, Mickey Joseph :lol:

I still don't see Joseph leaving his home (and super talent rich area) to come back unless its a HUGE raise.  He made $310k this past season.  Are we going to have to double that?

Isn’t Walters making $700K?

Then what's the point of having him?  Run game coordinator as he was with the Bears?  

What's the point of having an OC at all? Frost calls all the plays. I mean come on man the OC still does alot of work helping Frost accomplish what he wants to do on Saturdays.

I didn't say we didn't need an OC.  I'm wondering why people want Helfrich to be our OC.  As I've stated before, Helfrich gets a lot of praise for work done by others.

Callahan don’t know crap. The ball is in Joseph’s court as of now. I don’t always know what’s going on but an offer has been made. Mickey loves Lincoln but he’s already home geographically
