Chip Kelly was hired from UMass to be Oregon's offensive coordinator. He had two years of successful OC-ing at Oregon under his belt before he became the head coach there.

New Hampshire, but whatever.

Not a good hire.

- Bohl was the one who built NDSU into the national title-winning powerhouse it is today, not Klieman, and he deserves the credit for it. Klieman just continued the trend (and Bohl meanwhile has done poorly at Wyoming). At K-State he'll have to orchestrate a rebuild on his own terms.

- Hiring an FCS coach all the way up to P5 is a massive risk. Huge, huge uptick in responsibilities. Recruiting will also fall of a cliff, he has no experience recruiting the area. He was Kansas' DB coach in 1997. That's his entire lifetime's worth of P5 experience at any level.

- Given that Gene Taylor, NDSU's previous AD is now at K-State, this feels very much like a gool ol' boy hire.

So NDSU’s undefeated record in 2018 is all because of Craig Bohl, who’s been gone for half a decade?  

I have no idea who Chris Klieman is, but seems like he deserves a lot of credit if he’s still competing for championships 5 years removed from his predecessor.

He's well positioned to continue the trend of fundamentally sound teams anchored by Midwest farm kids that are better than they should be.  He's also ex Northern Iowa so he'll bring it for Farmageddon.

The question is whether he'll be able to get competent skill position players.  I think Campbell can recruit circles around him.

Crop circles?

Skill position players? In those pics, he looks like one straight up ghetto thugga. He looks like he's street wise. That's how he roll.

Kansas State has tried to replace Snyder before, you'd hope they learned something about replacing a legend since the last time.

If you can recruit to fucking Fargo, you can sure as shit get guys to come to Manhattan, KS.  By the game up there in 2020 against those guys, we'll already be back in deep shit versus the Wildcats.

Recruiting kids to Fargo to win national championships and recruiting kids to Manhattan to maybe compete for a Big 12 title once a decade are two different things.

Recruiting kids to Fargo over Minneapolis and recruiting kids to Manhattan over Austin are two different things but I'll wait and see.

No offense, but rarely is there overlap between the prospects Texas recruits and the ones KSU goes after.

I'm talking about in one situation players are choosing to play football in one town where it is fifteen below zero for half the year or another town where it is fifteen below zero half the year.  In the other situation the temperature is 20 to 30 in winter in one place and well, a lot better in another place.

He hired Courtney Messingham to be his OC.

Rhoads made Messingham our OC after Herman went to Ohio State.  The guy makes Greg Davis look like Sean McVay.

Chicago Bears may try to hire new K-State DC....

"Sources tell FootballScoop the Bears are exploring hiring new Kansas State defensive coordinator Ted Monachino."

Monachino is a longtime NFL coach, who served as the defensive coordinator for Chuck Pagano with the Colts in 2016-17, and the two also coached together in Baltimore, where Pagano served as defensive coordinator and Monachino coached the linebackers.

Hazelton completed his second season as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Wyoming in 2018 after serving as assistant linebackers coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars for three seasons.

Under Hazelton, the Cowboys ranked 28th in the FBS in scoring defense (22.0 points) and 19th in total defense (326.2 yards) in 2018 after finishing ninth in scoring defense (17.5 points) and 23rd in total defense (335.2 yards) in 2017.

Prior to his stint with the Jaguars, Hazelton spent 2013 as defensive coordinator at Nevada and spent 2012 as linebackers coach at Southern California.

Hazelton joins defensive ends coach Blake Seiler, cornerbacks coach Van Malone and safeties coach Joe Klanderman. Mike Tuiasosopo was hired on Monday to coach defensive tackles.

Malone spent this past season as defensive quality control coach at Mississippi State after serving three seasons as defensive coordinator at SMU. Klanderman has served on Klieman’s coaching staff at North Dakota State for five seasons. His defensive backs have ranked in the top five interceptions four times and he has coached three All-Americans.

Seiler returns to coach defensive end after serving as defensive ends coach between 2013 and 2016. Seiler served as defensive coordinator and coached linebackers in 2018 following the retirement of Tom Hayes after the 2017 season.

Tuiasosopo served as defensive tackles coach at Texas El-Paso in 2018 after spending a majority of his coaching career on the west coast with his most recent stops at Southern California and UCLA.

K-State fans unhappy Klieman losing this assistant to West Virginia......

https://247sports.com/college/kansas-state/LongFormArticle/Blake-Seiler-West-Virginia-Kansas-State-football-Chris-Klieman-Neal-Brown-128598645/

Kansas State fans got some very unpleasant news on Friday night when Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel reported that defensive line coach and former defensive coordinator Blake Seiler would be leaving Manhattan and going to in-conference foe West Virginia. Seiler accepted a linebackers coach job under new Mountaineer head coach Neal Brown after he was demoted to defensive line coach when Chris Klieman came in.

It was tough news for K-State fans to accept, as Seiler was not only a coach for a long time at K-State, but also a graduate and former player in the program.

Grad Transfer RB......

K-State lands UNC RB Brown as grad transfer

May 8, 2019

Associated Press

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- North Carolina running back Jordon Brown is heading to Kansas State, where he will be eligible to play for new coach Chris Klieman immediately as a graduate transfer.

The former four-star recruit ran for 613 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore, but his playing time decreased last year. Brown would have been part of a crowded backfield in Chapel Hill along with Michael Carter and Antonio Williams, so he elected to transfer for his final year.

The Wildcats had no scholarship running backs returning this season, so there are plenty of carries to go around. Brown will be competing with four freshmen and Ball State transfer James Gilbert for the starting job when fall camp begins.

Brown announced his decision Tuesday.

Cody Stufflebean has to be the most fucking KSU name ever.

I bet he's a Wes Welker-esque PITA in a couple of years.

I was going to post some smart-ass comment about you're just mad we beat you x amount of times, etc.  Turns out you guys are actually leading the series, 50-48 or something like that.
