Will Be Interesting To See What Direction Niele Goes... by dillon77
... particularly given Baba's post on position-less approach, which would seemingly demand an overall uniform approach to certain skill sets (as opposed to position-by-position). Allen & Barlow has wide-ranging skill sets.
Of course, most posters (me included) want to see the best possible candidate be selected, whether that person has ND background or not.
Jen Hoover is a good thought for a person steeped in the ACC. I thought she did well at her alma mater. It's hard to keep track of younger, qualified assistants at P5 schools because there's so much jockeying and movement to get to the next opportunity. And assistants like Coach O or Chris Dailey seemingly aren't going anywhere.
Sometimes the mid-majors are good places to look, which is another reason why a Charel Allen or Barlow come to mind. Stay tuned.
