    Default Eidsness Heading to Northern Illinois

    Eric Eidsness is heading to NIU to be their OC.

    Tweet is from @HuskieUnleashed which I'm unable to link to at the moment.

    Interesting...

    Cappin should be happy. Maybe we won't see any more swing passes.

    I think the swing pass predates EE.

    Does Coach Eck move up to OC?

    My biggest concern is if we switch to someone more conservative.

    Yep, pretty sure Meadows used it quite a bit as well.

    Until we name the replacement, I won't know how to feel about this.

    Eidsness was actually a good-to-very-good offensive coordinator despite the occasional moans from the fans (I'm guilty as well). The guy was damn near great at adapting the offense around the talent he had on the field as well as being creative with his play design. His playing calling was also better than he gets credit for even though he'd throw in some head scratchers and ineffective game plans here and there.

    Right now I'm going with: Not easy to replace, but able to be replaced.
    If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.

    Zimmer mentioned Eck or Schleusner as possible replacements. I'm on board with Eck, although I do like him coaching the OL. He would presumably still have some influence there and assist whoever would replace him as OL coach. To me Eck is the most logical replacement, as he is already the "run game coordinator".

    Agreed, although if it is Eck I don't see that being a problem.
