When Choate was hired, I remember him saying that he had no interest in coaching at the Power 5 level. He said his dream was to be a head coach at this level. Lets just hope he sticks to his word and stays here until we have won a NC and have a streak of 17 wins against UM.
I think that's almost what you have to say when you're hired at a place like MSU. We're all expecting a decent coach to be gone in no time so it's on everybody's mind. But I do think he likes this level and would happily stay, especially if MSU has some success and can pay him accordingly like they just did with Cruzado.

I always got a great HC gig after being a magnificent OC or DC on the old NCAA Football games.

Yeah, Choate has a son in the program and he did a lot of work to get the new football facility built. I highly doubt Choate leaves before his son graduates and he gets a chance to spend a season or two in the new facility.

Oh, and I think we should name the new facility, "The Triple C." after Choate, Cruzado, and Costello.

Very interesting! Jimmy Lake the current DC named head coach. Wonder if Lake is targeting Choate for DC, hope not.
Choate won't leave Bozeman for a coordinator job...even at the highest of FBS programs. I think it will be head coach or bust for him from here on out in his coaching career.
1. The pay of a good P-5 coordinator is much, even double or more than that of a FCS HC.
2. You are much more likely to get a P-5 HC job as coordinator than a FCS HC.

The only recent FCS to P-5 head coaching hire I can remember happened last year with Klieman to Kansas State. Even Chip Kelly was the OC at Oregon before getting the job. Maybe Choate wants run his own program and is willing to wait for a Mountain West or MAC school to come looking around, but if he wants a big time job this would be a top opportunity. Looks like Kwiatkowski is the heir at DC though. Don't think he would move up for something like a Special teams job.
The other thing I worry about...… Ioane….
Actually, I'd be more concerned about losing Miller.

I think Choate has an understanding & appreciation for the concept of "quality of life". I think his chances of going to a P-5 school are pretty low right now. Look what he would be leaving after what he's built. Look how it disgraced Hauck. I have to think even Petersen has some regret leaving Boise to chase a premiere west coast P-5 job.

I dont think Peterson regrets leaving Boise, You need to read what he said about UW if you do, he is staying at UW in an administrative role

I heard coach said that while he’d love to be here forever, after he learned about the lack of integrity and classlessness of some of his fanbase, he might have to consider leaving. He doesn’t want to be associated with dishonestly like that....

If I were a betting man (I am), I’d say you are talking in generalities about people welching on bets. Specifically bets that would benefit an organization and community in numerous ways.


I love the Bobcats and the Miami Hurricanes an unhealthy level

Leaving because of a fanbase........this would be every coach in America. The pressure and expectations are way worse the higher up you go.

Exactly!!! He also stated leading up to the first game he coached in against a then FBS Idaho that the expectations of the program including the fans should always be to win.

I think you guys are missing the digs at a certain poster who lacks integrity and class, continues to welch on a bet and when he's called on said welching, claims that people are just being petty...

I don't even know what spotify is, but I'm not going to download some app. Why can't it just play?


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^
