@Tomahawk RedWell at least you aren't one of the knee jerk
types that hurry as fast as they can to disagree with me simply to disagree with
me even though what I wrote makes perfect sense.Of course Hill was
thinking about some job security, there isn't a coach on utah's staff
that should be feeling secure at this point. It is funny that some of these utah
"fans" that so quickly jumped to disagree with me are some of the same
ones calling for changes in the coaching staff. lol
The guy was in charge of ST and Rb's. The only reason Utah's ST was
decent was because of Andy Phillips. Kickoff coverage was a disaster. RBs were a
joke. On a more positive note; I think I will apply for the open job
on the Utah coaching staff. Obviously previous experience means nothing. I could
do a lot with $220k a year.
Duckhunter, I actually agree with you for once.Hill probably saw the
writing on the wall, and knew the Utah coaching staff is a sinking ship.Another losing season and Witlessham will be out of a job, and by
extension so will all of his unqualified (except Erickson) assistants.
I thought for sure that Dave Peck of Bingham High would get a shot at this job.
He has been VERY successful for a long time and is a great recruiter. Maybe he
will get the next HC job that comes up. Great coach!
"But when you lose would you just head off to 'Tulsa?'"MagnaUte: That, and call everybody a liar when he gets back.
Happy with the hire as Coach Hill has great local ties and will be successful
recruiting local players to WSU. Already living here is huge as he can get
right to work not having to uproot his family and move. Excited to see Weber
State Football become respected again!Go Wildcats!
Duck,How does it feel to support a team that in incapable of beating
a team that in your opinion is in shambles?Sort of like how Texas
fans want to fire Brown for having lost to BYU. LOL
I was thinking of offering you a wager on that prediction Duck "hunter."
But when you lose would you just head off to "Tulsa?"
Smart of Hill to get out before they clean house up on the hill. He is a good
enough coach that I think he would have survived the purge whittingham is going
to institute in a few weeks but he'd still be gone after next season when
the entire staff is canned so this was a great move by him.I think
he'll do a good job at Weber which in my opinion should be a dominant
program in 1AA and the Big Sky. It is located in a much more favorable location
than any of the other schools in that conference and should have much better
resources. It could be a very nice stepping stone job for coach Hill if he is
I'd like to thank Ed and Don't Feed for bringing down the board. this is a great opportunity for Jay and I'm happy for him, but it
took you 2 to start lobbing pot shots. When is it going to stop?Enough already!
I am hopeful he can bring a winning program to Weber State. If he wants to build
interest, win and put butts in seats then stop looking for some kids from Texas
and Florida and start recruiting locally. SUU is killing Weber in the local
recruits and their facilities pale in comparrison. There are a lot of kids
right here in Utah that are late bloomers or getting overlooked by the big 3.
Kids who are going on missions should be a top priority. Invest in the now and
the future. Be the school who waits to commit kids and steals the seniors that
are overlooked because they didn't get rated by Rivals as a Sophomore. Lot
of rivals rated kids sitting on the sidelines at the U, Utah State, and BYU.
I'll name a few right now that would be absolute studs for Weber.Scott Nichols - Bingham RB, Chipper Lucero - Alta QB, Dylan Murdock - Lone
Peak WR, Spencer Romney - PG all around, T.J. Wind - PG RB, Austin Kruger - Lone
Peak OL: All of these kids are D1 players, many missionary bound which when they
return would dominate at the FCS level.
@ Chris B"Just another assistant coach for Utah who been sought
after."Yes, which Utah assistant will be named the coach for
that comparable job opening at Texas?
Just another assistant coach for Utah who been sought after. This happens to
all great programs.Best of luck coach, one of the classiest guys in
all of sport.GO utes!
This makes for a nice landing for K-Whitt in 2014.
Congratulations, Coach Hill. Thank you for your contributions to Utah football,
and good luck at Weber State.
Congratulations Jay. I think he's been one of the best coaches on the
staff. He's done a Great job with instate and Vegas recruiting, and
whatever position group he coaches, he does a great job with them. I wish him
the best and much success at Weber. I wouldn't be surprised to
see Sitake get a crack at a HC job soon too.It'll be
interesting to see how the Utah staff shakes out this off season.Go
Congrats Jay you have been very pleasent every time I have interacted with you
since your playing days to your time on the sidelines. I wish you the best of
luck in your new coaching adventures. You are a great recruiter and will be
missed at Utah.
Wow. Didn't see that coming. Best of luck to Jay. He will be a tough one
Time to clean house at Weber State. Start with Bovee. He is out of his league
and should probably go back to working with high schools.
Coach Hill is a classy guy, I wish him the best of luck in Ogden. He's been
the Utes' primary in-state recruiter for years, and that should work
wonders for Weber's program, I think he'll be able to find some great
guys that the state's FBS programs overlooked. Hope to see Weber State
successful in the near future, good luck, Jay!
