Steve Addazio to Temple

+

Sorry, a little behind because of the holidays. Anyway, yesterday's announcement that Steve Addazio was being named the new Temple HC drew a lot of criticism. Addazio struggled as Florida's offensive coordinator last year. I disagree, as being a successful coordinator doesn't necessarily require the same skills as being a good head coach. Steve Addazio is a strong recruiter in the northeast, and that is 90% of the job at a program like Temple. They have the best recruiting base in the MAC, and it was even more important to secure those players with Kent State (Darrell Hazell) and Ball State (Pete Lembo). It's hard to believe that the combination of Addazio and Temple won't be an easier sell. Of course, this hire does have a couple implications for the Rutgers end of things: 1. Hooray - no more Addazio recruiting at Florida! Of course, this is partially balanced out by Golden at Miami, and Florida can always hire another assistant to cover the area anyway. 2. If Addazio succeeds, he'll be the next obvious candidate for regional BCS conference openings in a few years. 3. Media reports out of Philadelphia named Frank Cignetti as a candidate at Temple. My wish is that there's one less obstacle in the way to him being the Rutgers offensive coordinator next year. If that doesn't happen, at least the OC market will loosen up a bit and somebody else could be in need of a job. Still wondering what Miami does there...
