That would be my guess - he was reacting to the situation. And it is just not instructors who make it work. To grow enrollment, a school needs staff, graduate assistants, physical and digital resources, etc.

The press release does state that retention among undergraduates actually increased, which is a tribute to UNI's mission. The reduction was in incoming freshmen, transfers and grad students.

There are two main sources of revenue at a school like UNI: tuition and money from the legislature (UNI does not have big research infusion nor a big donor base, AFAIK).

Undergraduate tuition had just gone up 30% over the previous two years; kind of difficult to raise that again. And the state leg decrease their contribution. Meanwhile, costs rise across the board simply to maintain.

This is going from one official document from that time, the press release with quotes from Koob. That does not mean it is the whole story.

Also, it is a snapshot in time. Enrollment continued to drop after that.

Did state aid stay level (which would not keep up with costs) or drop even more in the years after that? I was no longer in state and wasn't paying close attention at the time. But there are those who were - some working at UNI - who also post here and can answer those questions.

I heard one of the two new coaches we hired is indeed gone. Not sure how we are going to manage spring ball with no coaches and no offense.

I don't recall ever entering Spring ball without an offensive coordinator.

He seems to have been a bunch places that weren't very good and not retained often.

NIU 04-06 - fired
Ga Tech 07 - fired
08-12 Georgia State - an abomination of a program and fired
UMASS - 13 - fired
UT-M - 14-15 left for UNI

"Co OC/QB Coach", not sure if that sounds good or not.

What an absolute embarrassing **** show.

We dont even have an offensive coordinator, yet some random dude on twitter who's been fired from every awful football program in America has co-OC on his Twitter profile. I wonder who the other co-OC is gonna be? The possibilities are endless.

Cant wait to renew my tickets!

Yup. Exactly. Farley's love of the running quarterback has worked out so well for him.

Bond has a long coaching career.
1985 Arkansas (grad assistant) (worked under Lou Holtz)
1986-1990 SW Missouri (Running backs coach)
1991-1993 UTEP (QB coach)
1994-1995 Delta State (QB coach)
1996-1999 Illinois State (wide receivers/offensive coordinator)
2000-2003 Army (OC/QB coach)
2004-2006 Northern Illinois (OC)
2007 Georgia Tech (OC)
2008-2012 Georgia State (OC)
2013 U Mass (OC)
2014-2015 Tennessee-Martin (OC)

There is an interesting YouTube video from his time at UMass that shows his coaching philosophy. Interestingly, his two top qualities in a quarterback are passing accuracy and toughness.

There's a ton of triple option in there...

For what it's worth, in 2015 which was Bond's last season as on OC...Tennessee-Martin went 7-4 and averaged 35 points a game vs. FCS competition.

I threw out a lopsided loss vs. Ole Miss and a big win against a DII school.

In 2014 Bond's offense at Tennessee-Martin averaged 32 points a game in 8 games vs. FCS competition.

6-6 overall record with two SEC losses and 1 DII win.

Sounds intriguing at least. It's certainly higher performing than what we saw from UNI Men's Basketball this year. Give the guy a chance.

Too last to check it all. But I think the GT job would of been before Johnson and Army before they went back to the option. I could be way off though.

My bad, you are correct. Didn't realize Johnson won as quickly at GT as he did. Took the job in 08, had them in the Orange Bowl in 09.

Pretty sure mens bb did average over 32 points this year. Not by much I guess.

OVC competition doesn't mean much. Outside of Jax State that is a garbage conference up and down, and even nationally Jax State isn't that good as they've been curb stomped by the two good teams they've played in the playoffs (NDSU and YSU).

Outside of JSU's wins, and a win against another OVC team a few years ago, the conference is something like 20-21 years without a playoff win - or very, very, very few outside of JSU. They went something like 19 years without a win until they finally got one - against a PFL team and then another OVC team.

Maybe he's good, but 30 years coaching with that many stops, that many changes taking place while he was there, and never really advancing into any good programs makes me wonder.

Yep a lotta stops on that resume. Lots to wonder about...But all you can do is look at facts and recent history and see what it tells you.

Agree OVC defenses are not good. But he was also coaching OVC talent on offense.

I'd be more inclined to disregard the UMass and Georgia State records as those were unusual situations where I suspect he was trying to compete with lesser talent than the competition on the schedule.

I don't think it is a bad hire, he has been put into a lot of bad situations, I would argue that we have the most competitive talent that he has ever worked with. If the offensive line coach is as good as I think he could be we might not have to have our defense score more points then they give up to win.

Has he been put in bad situations or he hasn't been able to get to a place with better situations.

Fellas...I took the purple shades off a couple years ago when we screwed the OC hire...so I try to keep a skeptical eye. But damn some of this board is wallowing in negativity.

Who do you think an FCS school with a limited budget is gonna get...Belichek?

This is the reality of today's FCS football.

Give the guy a chance. After the season has started, if he is doing a bad job then we can rip him. Right now let's hope for the best.

Agreed. Also, watch the general look and feel of the offense next year. I'll be curious to see if it looks like it was drawn up for Bailey, or whether the new guy has been given some freedom. If it's something Bailey/Carnes like, then you might as well hire a chimp and pay him minimum wage. It would need to be a chimp who can breakdown opponent film, put together scouting reports from your assistants, and recruit. A smart chimp, but a figurehead nonetheless.

I hope Farley does the same (gives him a chance and lets him run the offense he wants to). I'm not very optimistic considering recent seasons.
