Are you excited about hiring a lot of ex Idaho guys?

New, 11 comments

This question came up on the message board and I decided to answer it with a list of coaches that have done time at Idaho as an assistant or a head coach over the years.

You have a lot of coaching tree's that have emerged from Idaho over the past fourty years. For some reason it seems to be the cradle of coaches in the Northwest because it is a great place to get a lot of experience on your way up.

This is a real incomplete list but it gives you a little idea of why it isn't a bad thing to have stint at Idaho on your resume.

By the way it looks like Doug Nussmeier who is another guy with Vandal coaching ties is the new Quarterback coach at UW.
