Coaches compliment MacIntyre, Koenning, and Frazier

Funny stuff here…Utah State spokesman explains why Hawaii game won’t be a sellout: "It is the opening of deer-hunting season. We usually try to get that date as a road game, but it didn't work out this year."

Former San Jose State coach Dick Tomey compliment new head coach Mike MacIntyre: "I think Mike's done a tremendous job.The team is playing with such passion despite the fact that they've lost so many players (to injury) and have played the toughest schedule I've ever heard of."

"The feedback I've gotten from coaches like (Nevada's) Chris Ault is that the guys are spilling their guts for Mike, which is what you hope for."

Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress says Leslie Frazier will be a great head coach: "I don't have any doubt in my mind. There's a reason he's our assistant head coach, because he can slide right into the seat, and he would do a tremendous job."

"He's a great communicator. It doesn't make any difference if it's high school-age kids or college-age kids, which a lot of our pros are. Or, older guys."

A GREAT article about Illinois defensive coordinator Vic Koenning: Zook, Larry Blakeney, Tommy Bowden, and players praise Koenning. You can read the article right here.

Jon Gruden is open to coaching again: “I have no idea. I still go about my business as if I was a coach. I approach Monday Night Football like I did a game when I was coaching. My wife thinks I'm crazy the way I still study tapes. . . . If there is an opportunity down the road I would have to consider it.”
