    Gary is inheriting a very talented team, led by a very good QB. Let’s wait a couple years until that talent leaves and USU is once again a 6-6 team every year. I hope Gary doesn’t even get a phone call when Whitt decides to leave.

    I get it, it’s a better opportunity for Gary and Ena but it’s still a dick move to leave after one year and poach our staff. I have no doubt we’ll replace both coaches and be just fine, but still… Gary could have stuck around a few years and probably would be next in line for Whitt’s job.

    i completely agree, the fact that he grabbed enis was a dick move in my opinion.

    Meh. Lets just wish Gary the best. They’re not our direct competitor. It’s not like Ena is spurning us in any way, just trying to better his own situation. There are enough experienced coaches on Utah’s staff to choose from when the time comes. (Or perhaps attract another Urban type candidate)

    I hope you never get a promotion or better job. You don’t deserve it.

      If I got hired somewhere, then left for a better job, then decided the grass wasn’t greener and my original job took me back and then I quit and stole something on my way out? Yeah I wouldn’t deserve a promotion after that.

        Stole something? If Justin didn’t want to go he could have said No to Gary.

        Next coach up.

        Ena is a big big boy. I think he sees an opportunity for more money and a chance to prove himself. Good for him. 

        GA isn’t someone I would hitch my career to but can’t really blame GA for “poaching”.

        Stole something? What did he steal, are you saying coaches are university property? Idiotic.

    Honestly we are bigger than this now. If it was a big time coordinator I’d be p**sed. But Linebacker coach. Eh. I don’t think he’s a very good recruiter anyways.

    Enable us moving up in the world. It’s not poaching it’s how coaching works. What do you expect? All coaches should stay at Utah and not take a shot at promoting? That’s dumb.

    Nah, he will win 9+ every year there and they will build a statue of him when he retires. He will be USU’s LaVell.

    Not sure how it is now, but 8 plus years ago, every coach was basically on a one year status with Kyle. I know there were many years A-Rod didn’t know if he’d have a job the next year. Save the commentary on wishing he’d left earlier, he’s gone let it rest. Not that I’m an A-Rod sycophant, just knew his friend who would provide me updates. I haven’t lived around that guy for 8 years, and A-Rod’s gone.

    I’m happy for Gary, he seems to have turned things around this past year, and will do well at USU. The negative impact of Gary recruiting head to head in state is minimal, however the cred of Utah coaches moving up and out is of greater importance.

    So do I think it was a dick move for either one to leave? NO WAY, NO HOW!!!! Let go the coaches who aren’t cutting it and onward and upward for those who are ready for the next challenge. I mean are you complaining that we “settled” for Sione and whomever else we get? We’ve got quite a good stable of former NFL players and up and coming coaches who’d jump at the chance to polish their resume at Utah.

    Salty thread! Actually I agree with this. This is the second time he’s left and taken people. I don’t expect him to succeed.

    Whitt did him a favor after his flameout at Oregon State. I have no interest in him as HC at Utah. No good deed goes unpunished.
