    The one thing that makes Keeler interesting is his Lehigh Valley connections as he is originally from Emmaus and starred there before going the UD as a player. But I would be shocked if he were on any ‘list’.

    Keeler an OC? Thought he was a defensive guy?

    Perry is the guy I like a lot but another guy I keep going back to/speculating about is Slippery Rock OC Phil Longo, who recently was the architect of their top-rated D-II offense. He’s had some FCS experience in the midwest (SIU, Youngstown State) and might be a fit.

    Note that he coaches QB and WR. Former head man at LaSalle, too, before they discontinued football.

    Zip,nada,nil,nothing …..lotsof speculation.
    Dave C.,Stovall,Miran and Giacolone must be replaced.Pessimistic view ..rats leaving a sinking ship. Pragmatic is turnover is normal and more a sign of success and Andy’s ability to usually choose excellent coaches.

    Thought Santella would be good fit………but a friend I saw yesterday that had coaching experience at Montreal and Uva said that Faragalli was offered?????? Has known him for years and speaks highly of Faragalli. Can anyone confirm?

    Apparently true from my source, who was a bit surprised that Mike was interested. His question was whether Andy reached out to Mike with an offer or whether Mike applied for job.If the latter ,he will be our new OC in his opinion.

    Mike let go as RB coach at UVa in 2012. Cant find anything as to what he did this past season. Perhaps why he is in the mix.

    In order for London to save his job, he fired 4 coaches including Faragalli after the 2012 season. This season UVA finished with a worse record and I have no idea why London still has a job. He inherited that NC team at Richmond, and never understood the love affair UVA has with the man. Faragaali has a very nice resume and experience at many levels.

    the last 2 quotes sounds like a good match

    That Richmond run to the FCS championship involved an athletic QB (Eric Ward) and a big back (RB Josh Vaughn) to set up the surprisingly effective passing game. Not out of the realm of possibility to see Yosha and Shaf as that type of 1-2 punch for the Brown and White, but again, it doesn’t seem like the same approach as Dave C.

    I like the fact though that he’s a veteran offensive man through and through and his last job was in a BCS-level program. That tells you a lot about the job that it (supposedly) can attract a big name like this.

    It would remind me a lot of the Dave Kotulski hire if it happens, and we all know how well that turned out.

    Has anyone heard any rumors about potential coaching changes on the defensive side of the ball?
