Is he going to cast a wide net, and look for a proven commodity..... or will he limit his search to only the Youngstown, OH area?

Mike Stoops has 'great respect for Bo'

Posted by: Steve Sipple on December 2, 2011 at 12:14PM CST Let's make something clear:

Mike Stoops, the former Arizona head coach and longtime friend of the Pelinis, said Friday he hasn't talked to Bo Pelini about any potential coaching opportunities at Nebraska. As of this moment, there are no full-time openings on Bo's staff.

However, it appears Husker defensive coordinator Carl Pelini could be set to take the head coaching job at Florida Atlantic, perhaps as soon as Monday. So, if an opening develops at NU, would Stoops be interested?

"Of course," Stoops said Friday.

After all, the Pelini and Stoops brothers became particularly close at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio, after attending different elementary schools. Mark Stoops was a groomsman in Bo’s wedding.

Said Mike Stoops on Friday: "We're great friends, and I have great respect for Bo and what he's done."

“Our families are close,” Bo Pelini said in December of 2009. “We always will be.”

The late Ron Stoops Sr., Cardinal Mooney’s longtime defensive coordinator, is a tie that binds the families in a football sense. He coached his four sons (Bob, Mike, Mark and Ron Jr.) and all five Pelini boys.

“All the Mooney coaches had a big influence on us, and obviously Ron Sr. had a major impact,” Bo Pelini said in 2009. “He was not only a hell of a coach, but also a great role model with how he was with his family."

We'll see where this goes.

wtf bo

Running has an uncanny ability to mellow the soul, to take the edge off hard feelings, and put things back into healthy perspective.
Yeah, it's a 50 caliber. They used to use it to hunt buffalo with... up close! It's only legal in two states. And this isn't one of them.

Don't see Bo bringing in Stoops or having MS accept it if it was offered. He will promote from within. Maybe JP.

Stoops is a pretty good DC.

Would be a good hire.

I wouldn't mind getting Ekeler back from Indiana. Good recruiter, and the players loved him. Though Stoops would be a 'big name" hire, I hear his players at U of A didn't exactly like him much.

Bo and Stoops on the same sideline. I would hate to be an official.

No way Stoops comes here to be a co-coordinator. They run totally different defenses and I can't imagine he'd want to put up with Bo having the final say on everything. If he can't find any other jobs, than maybe he'd settle for NU. If Ohio St offers he's taking the job and his pay would be triple what we'd offer.

I say it's JP as the front-runner with some guy nobody's ever heard of that runs the 7-11 in Youngstown as sleeper. I'd like Ekler, but who knows if he'd come back.

FWIW I've spoken to our course manager/groundskeeper at Hidden Hills Country Club in Geneva and he has not been contacted by Bo...yet.

I think Stoops will end up at Ohio State. The best name out there that I found was Ekeler. A guy like Doug Colman isn't DC ready yet. How would you feel about Pelini as his own DC and hiring a QB coach?

I don't see Stoops going to Ohio State... Fickell is already the DC so unless you bring in Stoops as a Co-DC (doubtful) he's going to be a position coach? I don't see that happening unless we're talking the NFL here... You're not going to pay $700k+ for a position coach.

If I had to guess at this moment where Mike Stoops lands, from what I'm hearing right now, Id say Nebraska.

I think it's doubtful, but you never know.

I'm also hearing JP will be promoted to DC and bo will hire a new position coach that is a good recruiter to fill the staff vacancy.

Ekeler coming back is unlikely, as his leaving had as much to do with an internal problem as it did him taking the next step in his career, iirc

This is the latest one making the rounds on numerous Husker message boards today.

I don't like this move, but -- the key will be getting an exceptional recruiter in the deal. Sorley needed, espeically if JP gives up the Recruiting Coordinator role to be the DC (which, logically, he'd almost have to).

So no matter how Bo fills this vacancy, NU has to get a sure-fire, top notch recruiter out fo the deal. Has to.

Sipple: Bo should make splash with Stoops

Things I know and think I know:

Nobody asked me, but Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini should do all he can to hire Mike Stoops, or somebody with extensive experience as a defensive coordinator.

The Big Ten's profile is rising. The coaching in the league already was excellent before Urban Meyer joined the fray. Now would be a good time for Pelini to raise the profile of his staff with a "splash" hire. I'm told there's enough money to make it happen.

Perhaps you noticed the teams at the top of the Big Ten food chain have savvy veterans at the offensive coordinator positions:

-- Michigan's Al Borges has spent nearly a quarter-century as a play-caller, including stops at Boise State, Oregon, UCLA, California, Auburn and San Diego State. The Wolverines caught fire offensively in their last two games -- a 45-17 triumph over Nebraska and a 40-34 decision against Ohio State. Borges used dual-threat quarterback Denard Robinson magnificently in those games.

-- Michigan State's Dan Roushar is in his first year as the Spartans' coordinator, but MSU is his fifth stop in that role. He obviously had a strong grasp on what he was doing Saturday night in the high-scoring Big Ten title game.

-- Wisconsin's Paul Chryst, in his sixth season as the Badgers' play-caller, has become one of the hottest names in the business. Nebraska saw why in October.

-- Last but not least: The days of conservative game-planning at Ohio State ended Nov. 28 with the hiring of Meyer, the spread-offense wizard.

Perhaps Pelini will choose to elevate defensive line coach Mushy the Excitable! into the coordinator position vacated Monday when Carl Pelini officially took over as head coach at Florida Atlantic.

The 33-year-old Papuchis has a razor-sharp intellect and is widely regarded as a rising star in the business. However, he would be a rookie defensive coordinator (and I'm not wild about taking him out of the recruiting coordinator role).

If Papuchis became defensive coordinator, Bo Pelini probably would have to retake much of the control of the unit, at least initially, meaning less time as CEO of the program, and perhaps less input on overall game management.

If Pelini genuinely wants to improve as a CEO type, he'll snatch up a veteran coordinator. Stoops, 49, could be that guy. Stoops said last week he'd be open to the idea if Bo called. Fired as Arizona's head coach in October, Stoops built an impressive resume at Oklahoma as a coordinator under his brother, Bob Stoops.

Pelini favors familiarity in his hires. He would get that in Stoops, a boyhood friend in their native Youngstown, Ohio. You have to think there would be ample trust in the relationship. That trust obviously would be important in this particular staff configuration.

Yes, Stoops might come with a hefty price tag --that's usually the case with "splash" hires. To play with the big boys, you typically have to pay. I have a strong feeling Stoops would be worth it.

*I'm guessing Carl Pelini will experience success at Florida Atlantic and quickly move on to bigger and better things. He sees the big picture. He's measured and studious. He's a ferocious competitor. Plus, you'll find few coaches who communicate better than Carl, hence his success as a recruiter.

Don't overlook that part of Nebraska's loss. He played a lead role in bringing in Lavonte David, Taylor Martinez, Brandon Kinnie, Jermarcus Hardrick, Quincy Enunwa, Daimion Stafford and Joseph Carter, among others.

For the past couple years, Carl seemed intent on leaving his younger brother Bo's shadow. Carl is 46, so the clock was ticking.

*My Heisman ballot: 1. Trent Richardson; 2. Robert Griffin III; 3. Andrew Luck. Richardson is arguably the best player in the nation's best conference. Plus, of the top three, he gets the nod in terms of physical toughness -- always a key ingredient in my thought process.

*Nebraska guard Bo Spencer will be fun to watch this season. But I disagree with those who think Spencer's game is in the class of former Husker great Tyronn Lue (1996-98). Lue was much quicker and a much better defender.

I feel that Bo wants someone in there that he could trust so my thinking is that he will promote from within... Except for the fact that Ron Zook was his position coach at tOSU. It may make some sense that Zook would be contacted.

rumor today is that Zook might be the next DC

I think I would like this move more than Stoops, since Zook has been a better recruiter in his career, imo.
