Hey there, OBNUGies,
By late today, or early tomorrow, we’ll probably have a new coach. Everyone around here has an opinion on who it should be. So do I… Only my favorite candidate isn’t getting much love. That guy would be Bob Gregory.
Did you hear him at the presser the other day? Dry sense of humor; mature; comfortable in his own skin… Sounded just like Coach Pete!
He’s been a DC at a major program (Cal) where he ran a successful defensive scheme. He chose to take a pay cut and accept a lesser position on the BSU staff in order to come back to Boise. Why? Because it was a better place for his family… Talk about having the right priorities.
Coach Gregory is a low ego, high character, high-energy guy. Our program needs a leader like him. It will almost be like having Pete back again…
If you’re worried about whether the offense will suffer, I think I can lay those fears to rest: Kirby Moore can be the new GA/OC and receive texts from brother Kellen during games. I would hire Kellen himself, but wouldn’t want him to have to take a big pay cut – he’s making almost 500k with the Lions and is due for a decent raise next season.
So there’s my vote: Bob Gregory for HC
