    Congrats to Coach Holtz on one of the all-time great careers. Has anyone ever built so many successful programs?

    It was a shame, however, that his last regular season game was marred by that bench clearing brawl. Wonder how his players feel about sending him off that way.

    I heard that South Carolina may decline any bowl bid as a result of the fracas. Does anyone know anything about this? I have mixed feelings. Normally I'd say screw 'em--those are the consequences of such disgraceful behavior. In this case, though, I'd like to see Coach Holtz be able to have one final game.

    edit--missed the part about the new coach should handle the bowl game. In that case, let 'em stay home.

    ps., Lou says he doesn't know where he will go. My bet is he goes to Augusta National from time to time.

    one of the last, if not the last of Woody Hayes coaching staff left!
    was Glen Mason with coach Hayes or coach Bruce?

    you could tell coach Holtz was under coach Hayes by the way he coached, i'm going to miss the old style coaching!

    He was...

    Holtz has some great stories about him in his book...got jacked up against a wall by Woody after OJ broke off a huge TD run. Hilarious story.

    yes coach Holtz was under coach Hayes, my question was, was Glen Mason under Hayes or Bruce?

    RockyMntBuck Did I mention I was Woody's paperboy ?

    Mason joined the Bucks in Woody's last season, 1978 - so he counts too.

    I found one more at least...not a head coach but still coaching. Pagac was also a Grad Asst. under Woody



    Dave Adolph enters his first season at USD where he will coach the linebackers. He returns to coaching following a 37-year coaching career that ended in January, 2000 when he retired from his post with the Kansas City Chiefs as assistant head coach/linebackers coach. He spent 21 years in the NFL ranks, including two tours of duty with the Chiefs. He served as the team's defensive coordinator from 1992-1994 and worked as the club's assistant head coach/linebacker coach in 1999.

    This respected defensive expert spent his entire pro coaching career (21 years) in the AFC, including 14 years as a defensive coordinator and 12 seasons in the AFC West, making 11 career playoff appearances in the process. Prior to joining the Chiefs, Adolph spent two years ('97-98) as linebackers coach for the Oakland Raiders. He signed on with Oakland after a two-year stint ('95-96) as defensiver coordinator for the San Diego Chargers. During his three-year tenure as Kansas City's defensive coordinator from '92-94, the Chiefs made three straight playoff appearances and allowed an average of just 18.1 points per game. A native of Akron, Ohio, Adolph originally came to Kansas City after spending three seasons ('89-91) as defensive coordinator for the L.A. Raiders. He spent the '86-88 seasons as defensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns. Adolph began his NFL career as the Browns defensive line coach in 1979. He took over the club's linebackers in '81 before assuming duties as defensive coordinator midway through the '84 season when Marty Schottenheimer was named head coach. He then spent one season ('85) as an assistant for San Diego before rejoining the Browns in '86. A 16-year coaching veteran on the collegiate level, Adolph worked with the legendary Woody Hayes at Ohio State from '77-78. He also coached at Illinois ('73-76), Kentucky ('69-72), Connecticut ('65-68) and his alma mater of Akron ('63-64). An all-conference guard and linebacker for the Zips, Adolph spent three years ('59-61) as a commissioned officer in the Air Force before beginning his coaching career at Cleveland's Shaw High School in '62.
