  • Black Monday

    Any coaching changes yet? Any jobs open up outside the RMAC that might pull talent out of the conference? Safe to assume Western and Black Hills are sticking with their guys, if they're still on the staff directories at this point?

    WOW!!! First victim, per Football Scoop:
    Dixie State (D-II – UT): Sources tell FootballScoop head coach Shay McClure and his staff have been let go following a 7-4 season including going 5-0 at home and beating the #6 team in the country two weeks ago. In three seasons as head coach McClure won 5, 6 and 7 games.

      WOW! The only way this makes any sense is they really are planning on bolting to FCS and Dixie doesn't feel as if this staff is adequate for that level. If I am Black Hills I clean house and hire every single one of these guys.

        Man! What kind of expectations do they have there?

          Had the same exact thought re: FCS. The guy had the program headed in the right direction, without a doubt... On their website they allowed him a parting comment, so it doesn't appear to be based on any misconduct, at least on the surface.

            I'm hoping Western parts way with the HC. 24 wins in 8 years.

                That 2016 team should've shared in the conference title with the others who tied that year. I guess now that I look at it, they were one game away.

                  It sounds like it had more to do with things besides on field performance.

                    I wish some Dixie fans (insiders) participated on this board. I would love to know in what ways athlete well being was at risk and if there were significant academic issues. A ams, SD Mines, Black Hills, Highland , Fort Lewis and Western would all love to be at his level of on field results.

                      Inside info from Dixie.... players are extremely upset with this. They loved the coaching staff and are as shocked as everyone. I would expect a lot of these players to transfer. Complete blindside is what I’ve heard. Believe that the player welfare is a cover up for the department not seeing eye to eye with the coaches. Very disappointing news, huge setback for this team after making big strides.

                        Ask and you shall receive! Welcome to the board blazerfan. Western would gladly take a coach like McClure. No palm trees in Gunni though:(

                              If I was an AD at a school in the west, and I had a football HC opening, I would contact one Rob Smith.
