I see no reason we can't get him as our offensive coordinator. We were able to get him for a position coach in 2016.

We are going to lose multiple players. We might lost 10 or more. We'll need a nationally connected coach who can reload from the portal. Someone who has SEC, ACC, Pac12, and most importantly Texas connections. This tips the scales toward Canales who has recruited the south for decades. He would reload like no one else, because he has national connections like no one else. Word is that his connections would reload USU immediately, and we will get a net win out of this whole deal.
Yep. Chico is the only potential coach with recruiting connections anywhere.

No he would not take the same position. He has decades of experience as an OC. Of course he isn't the only one with recruiting connections, but there is no one with connections like his, who also wants the job. Again he's coached in the ACC, SEC, and around a decade in Texas.

I know many are waiting for Vince Lombardi to rise from the grave and take the job, but it might be an interesting study to see just who is a pretty amazing candidate based on experience and connections.

There is a lot of interest in this job from many with great experience. I know you want Canales because of your personal connection to him and that’s ok. No one is waiting for Vince Lombardi, I’m pretty sure everyone wants the same thing... to find a solid coach that will help USU win

It would take more than a personal connection to get on board for me. I'd have to see the resume and the experience. Take a look at what he's been a part of for decades. He's had an outstanding career. He is very much respected in the coaching world and has worked with some pretty amazing coaches on his way who are references for him. That list is really something. He's an offensive guru and a winner.

But wouldn't Vince's connections also have to rise from the grave? Otherwise, Vince would have no connections either. I'm sorry my Aggie brother. I know you are being serious but I couldn't help myself.

So Canales has been the Utep Offensive Coordinator for the past 3 seasons. In 2018, Utep went 1-11 and had the 127th ranked scoring offense in the country. In 2019 they went 1-11 and Utep had the 119th ranked scoring offense in the country. This year they are a little better at 3-4, but have the 110th ranked scoring offense in the country.
Before that he was the QB coach at Tennessee during the 2017 season when they went 4-8 (0-8 in the SEC), in 2016 he was the Associate HC at USU where we had our worst season since 2008; before this one. From 2010-2015 he was the offensive coordinator at North Texas where during that time North Texas had a total of 1 winning season.

I 100% get that it isn't all his fault, but if we were to hire Canales we would be hiring a coach that has only been part of one winning season since he was at South Florida in 2009. I'm sorry, but we can do better.

What you are not understanding is that he has coaching connections throughout all the major conferences so he for sure is the most qualified candidate to take USU to a new level. :sarcasm:

So winning as an assistant where you are is the only factor? Seems like pretty bad tunnel vision. Does that means the only sufficient candidate we can get is someone on a run at a low level? Why not hire Corner Canyon's coach? Why would you punish him for being at a spot where he is building a program like he is doing currently, and improving it currently? Success is not a function of wins and losses as an assistant. Did you see Matt Well's win/loss before coming to USU?

If you throw out, we can do better, it would be lazy not to have a list with someone who has a better resume, and someone willing to come to USU. Name someone with a better resume, willing to take the job?

I like Chico, he is an aggie and would love to have the job. In my opinion that does not translate to being a successful head coach here. His resume is pretty good, but if it is so good how come other schools in the G5 have not given him the head coaching positions? I think we would be selling ourselves short by just giving the job to him because he has a decent resume and has worked at a lot P5 schools. Unfortunately the ship has probably sailed for him to get a head coaching job. That does not make him a bad coach, as his career has been successful. In my opinion we need an up and coming coordinator or a an established head coach at the FCS level that will ignite passion and energize the team and fanbase. I don't think Chico is that answer. I know you don't agree with that which is fine.

I would take Hill or Choate 10 times over before Chico. They both have really good coaching experience and have built winners when the team was really down. Weber was not an FCS title contender with Arslanian. There is for sure risk, but i would take that risk versus having Chico do it.

It's hard to believe that we'll actually play any more games this season.
I agree with the amount of cases coming in. I don't know how the team is doing with cases, but it probably is not looking good. I would love to see Cooper and Calvin a go to see how they can perform.

I guess we'll see if there's a game Thursday. Not getting my hopes up. I just hate not being able to be there and cheer for our guys. Daggum it.

We are going to lose multiple players. We might lost 10 or more. We'll need a nationally connected coach who can reload from the portal. Someone who has SEC, ACC, Pac12, and most importantly Texas connections. This tips the scales toward Canales who has recruited the south for decades. He would reload like no one else, because he has national connections like no one else. Word is that his connections would reload USU immediately, and we will get a net win out of this whole deal.
Yep. Chico is the only potential coach with recruiting connections anywhere.

So Canales has been the Utep Offensive Coordinator for the past 3 seasons. In 2018, Utep went 1-11 and had the 127th ranked scoring offense in the country. In 2019 they went 1-11 and Utep had the 119th ranked scoring offense in the country. This year they are a little better at 3-4, but have the 110th ranked scoring offense in the country.
Before that he was the QB coach at Tennessee during the 2017 season when they went 4-8 (0-8 in the SEC), in 2016 he was the Associate HC at USU where we had our worst season since 2008; before this one. From 2010-2015 he was the offensive coordinator at North Texas where during that time North Texas had a total of 1 winning season.

I 100% get that it isn't all his fault, but if we were to hire Canales we would be hiring a coach that has only been part of one winning season since he was at South Florida in 2009. I'm sorry, but we can do better.
So winning as an assistant where you are is the only factor? Seems like pretty bad tunnel vision. Does that means the only sufficient candidate we can get is someone on a run at a low level? Why not hire Corner Canyon's coach? Why would you punish him for being at a spot where he is building a program like he is doing currently, and improving it currently? Success is not a function of wins and losses as an assistant. Did you see Matt Well's win/loss before coming to USU?

If you throw out, we can do better, it would be lazy not to have a list with someone who has a better resume, and someone willing to come to USU. Name someone with a better resume, willing to take the job?
I like Chico, he is an aggie and would love to have the job. In my opinion that does not translate to being a successful head coach here. His resume is pretty good, but if it is so good how come other schools in the G5 have not given him the head coaching positions? I think we would be selling ourselves short by just giving the job to him because he has a decent resume and has worked at a lot P5 schools. Unfortunately the ship has probably sailed for him to get a head coaching job. That does not make him a bad coach, as his career has been successful. In my opinion we need an up and coming coordinator or a an established head coach at the FCS level that will ignite passion and energize the team and fanbase. I don't think Chico is that answer. I know you don't agree with that which is fine.
Up and comer from an FCS contender. Like an Arsalanian or a Dennehy? Again I'd just like to see a resume of a preferred candidate and compare it.

I compared Jay Hill’s resume and believe it’s far better than Canales. I like how Utah retained Hill for so many years. Wow, he must have been a keeper. He then takes a head coaching opportunity and leads the team to the national playoffs. I also like that he’s still in Utah.

The resumes are not comparable as Jay Hills is far stronger.

Bopping from job to job for a while is ok, but if you keep bopping around, somethings wrong.

Every time there's a coaching opening there's a wave of sentiment for former Aggie players and coaches. Remove the association with USU and no one would think any of these candidates are worth considering.

Canales would likely have no shot if he weren't a former Aggie. Given the state of our program over most if the last 4 decades or so ( with the exception of the last 10 years) being an Aggie should have absolutely no bearing on the decision. It isn't like we are drawing on tradition like Michigan or USC.

Nope. His association is the only reason he is getting considered. He probably wouldn't get a sniff anywhere else in the country.
