Wow! I am really excited to hear that we are getting Coach Roderick back. I know
it must not be easy to publicly change your mind a couple of times. We are just
glad he's back.
It would be refreshing if someone said "yes it was about the money". I am no Zoob grad but $92K vs. $200K... that's like "pumping gas" for a
living. Hmmm... I love SLC but I can get to love Seattle.Good luck
to him, I am just happy Ludwig is gone.Go UTES!
I know Coach A. personally, and he is one of the best coaches I know, and I know
a few. He recruited my son and now my son is a better person because of him. It
is going to be sad seeing him leave but I wish him the best for him and his
family. Take care coach. Now finally Washington can win some games, they needed
The beauty of this life is agency and our ability and freedom to make choices
for ourselves. I am a Ute fan but "the Truth" if you are a Ute fan you are
hypocritical and are failing to remember a coach that was commited to another
team that is south of his and then came to his right senses recieved a he** of a
better offer pay wise took that backed out and took the better paying job then
took his team to 13-0. These are grown men and can make choices for themselves
even if they are money driven
"It's hard to explain everything that went into the ($200,000/yr) decision,"
said Roderick. "A lot of it was just a ($200,000) feeling that this is the right
time to make a ($200,000) change and start something new. I did go back
($92,000/yr.) -and-forth ($200,000/yr.)."
Wow, another jealous comment from a fan of the TDS. Does it make you feel you
are sticking it to the Utes fans to say we are #4???Jealous of 13-0,
jealous that we have the coach of the year and that our coaches are being
recruited by other programs? Awwww, doesn't anyone want Bronco and his staff?
I hope they stay in Provo for a very long time!!
Maybe Roderick is the one who is being polite. Maybe you could consider that it
would be nice to hear how HE really feels. In my experience, ARod is one of the
few football coaches (and I've worked with many of them) who is not mostly
driven by ego. He is consistently willing to give credit to others and make
decisions based on protecting his own pride- not just in the press or public
eye. I like Whit, but that has not so much been my experience with him.
Yes, he deserves respect. A-Rod is a good young coach, and he will be missed.
Like any job or career that requires relocation, there are both personal and
well as professional factors that are taken into consideration in deciding what
direction to go. To me, what it sounds like A-Rod is saying that the personal
and family situation factored in to this decision. Hopefully everyone can
respect his right to keeping this part of it private, he doesn't owe anyone but
Kyle W. an answer on that. From what I understand Kyle accepts A-Rods reasons
and the bridges are still intact. Good luck to him at Washington, both
professionally and personally.
Wow, Utah fans bagging on their coaches that led them to #4 in the Nation.Doesn't he deserve some respect?
He had a friend talk to his dad and his dad actually talked to the Coaches about
the possibility of joinging the coaching staff. So I guess like the T.D.S. they
don't actively go after Young men serving missions. They just leave that up to
the family and Mission Presidents. Right.... Good Luck Coach thanks for your
A-Rod,Thanks for all the great years at Bountiful, Ricks, BYU, and
Utah. The Utes are better because you were there. Good luck in Washington. Go
