    I have always been of the opinion that Nagy knew he would be leaving at the end of that season. He knew that it would be a year or two, if ever, before he was able to get good guard play again and he was going to strike while the iron was hot.

    I think Bob seems like a good coach. I don't know much about him so I can't say what he is like as a person. I haven't heard anything real bad about him so he seems fine to me.
    I do find it interesting that he quit Western Illinois but wouldn't sign with USD until he got a multiyear contract. I wonder what would of happened if he didn't get several years? Now this is going on. You can't say that he doesn't make things interesting.
    Can you blame a guy for trying to leverage as much as he can as long as he can?

    He was absolutely leaving given the opportunity. Had wanted to get out for a few years

    Guard Cole Gentry made the trip with Nagy to Wright State and becomes eligible second semester, this season. I wonder how he'll do at Wright State.

    This thread needs retitling: such as Why Nagy Left? Or guards who played for Nagy. Did he leave money on the table?

    It seems only appropriate that a thread based on rumors about USD's football coach should continue to be nothing more than nonsense.

    Someone run to Baker's Square and order pie.

    One of multiple reasons I'm firmly entrenched in the pro-Stig camp.

    Good idea. Cherry or apple would be my preference. BTW is Bob staying or moving on? I am lost.

    I'll go on record as saying Nielson is a good coach. And he'll continue to do good things down south.

    Their offense will lose a little with Steveler graduating, but the game he sat out most of with the injury... the backup (Simmons?) performed well. And their young defense will be better. He's doing a really solid job. Anyone who thinks otherwise is just looking though Jackrabbit colored glasses.

    If he has another good season at USD, maybe a win or two more than this season... he'll be a "hot" candidate for a bigger school, I'm sure. (regardless of the new contract)

    He runs the "uptempo" no huddle style, that is all the rage and he's had success at every stop. Seems like he's a good recruiter. He's going to be attractive to someone, if he continues to improve the Coyotes program.

    This will just make it more expensive to lure him away.

    He is staying...but as one person reminded me this is eerily similar to how he left Western...until Kent St has a guy in place they won't rest easy.

    I'll also add that the MVFC is better when the yotes are competitive...
