Missouri State's Terry Allen fired. He told the press he's done being a head coach. He was 34-67 at MoState; 132-123 overall as a head coach.

Always seemed to be a gentlemen in post-game interviews. I think Stig has high regard for him.

Rumors in Youngstown: Wolford's job is on the line...maybe a decision tomorrow.

I guess always having a suit and tie handy for press conferences did not get him many points. AGS board alluded to his firing a week or two ago. A constant change of coaches is not the answer, but YSU has tons of talent with top high school ball played in the area, and someone should eventually be a winner. Jim Tressell is getting old and I doubt he wants that job again.

Terry Allen is Highly Respected by many. But his team has struggled for quite a while.

Wolford? Really? I could see that if they did what they did last year, but that team seems to be improving.

I think YSU is improving too and they shouldn't dump Wolford, at least give him another season.

Sean Callahan is tweeting that Bo Pelini is on the short list to be the next Youngstown State coach.

That would make life interesting in the MVFC!

Really? I didn't figure they could pay him enough. He probably could make a nice chunk of change as a P5 defensive coordinator.

Under terms of his contract (http://dataomaha.com/documents/bo-pelinis-contract), Nebraska would have to pay the difference between his contract with whomever he goes to work for and what he would have been paid by UNL.

In a nut shell, he is going to get paid $150,000 per month until 2019. If YSU pays him $50,000/month, UNL would pay $100,000/month. He is going to get paid $150k/month if he coaches for YSU or stays unemployed. It is up to him how competitive he is and if he essentially wants to work for free. There is a clause in the contract that he is expected to seek other work during the remainder of the contract.

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize that's how his contract was worked out.

In that case, him getting to run his own program again becomes much more appealing.

Why wouldn't he coach Youngstown? Nebraska has to pay him no matter what. He could go back home and chill with the 'rents. I think it would be awesome for him to have to come to Coughlin-Alumni Stadium after we visited him twice at Memorial Stadium.

Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Youngstown is an interesting place. All kinds of high school talent, but the community does not support the University a great deal. Tressell was about the only one who got something accomplished namely three NC's. I really do wonder how Bo will do.

Social media and the pressure for the media to stay ahead of social media makes for interesting fodder. Thayer Evans from Sports Illustrated reports that he has talked to Pelini and he responded about the potential YSU position - "It's all complete fabrication of the truth."

Stay tuned!

I beginning to wonder if the truth is "its all fabrication". Tressell the president is out the door headed to Michigan and that means some lowly AD is in charge. Seems like Bo would want to cool his heels before jumping into something like the job at YSU.

Trying to find out actual facts this morning and I'd have to say that the "its all fabrication" statement may be correct. On the YSU fan board (going to bend the rule against dragging stuff from other fan boards to this board), it appears the posters are acknowledging this morning that the rumor mill was in high gear last evening but it was just that: rumor. And, the rumors are being discredited by people professing to know the facts.

Isn't the internet wonderful? :)

If the Pelini story is false, and Youngstown has focused on a guy or two, neither of whom are named Pelini, I wonder how the finalists for the job feel about the furor over a Pelini hire? When the new YSU head coach is introduced at the press conference sure to be held in the near future, and his initials are not BP, he could have some fun at that press conference. Bo, on the other hand, would just look ticked off.

I don't have a clue on how state assisted institutions are run in Ohio, but seems like things are chaotic right now with the President firing the current coach and leaving for another coaching position. My thinking is that it may be awhile before some one is announced. They have to hire a president first, I would think.

I'm not following the reference to a President firing the current coach and leaving for another coaching position. Are you referring to Tressel leaving YSU? That's just a nutty rumor (going to coach Michigan) isn't it?

He is taking a big cut in pay, from 600k down to 270k. I guess its about running the show.

Bo was also adamant that Zach Zenner wasn't anything special after putting up 200 yds against the Cornhuskers last year.

When high school football is king in the Youngstown area, they don't have time to take in a YSU game. Some high school games are played on Saturday afternoon. Tressell needs a new alumni staff to work in building community support. If fired his current staff, they kept it quiet.
