    For all those clueless athletic directors out there without a head coach or might be considering firing their current one, get your checkbooks out and hire Norm Chow. Unless this guy flat out says he never wants to be a head coach someone needs to hire him now. And don't tell me you cannot afford him. He will make you money with putting butts in the seats.

    I said before the season started that Washington should hire Norm Chow for $2 million/year. ​
    Then I couldn't believe Stanford went for Walt Harris. ​

    Don't be surprised to see #1Pete head back to the NFL (SF?) and Norm take over as head coach. I assume he plans to leave before the 2005 season and has told Norm this in advance.

    Why would Pete leave?

    He has a great job. He makes alot of money, He doesn't have a GM, or owner to answer to. The people out there love him.
    He has the great program right now, and they willl get better.
    He's in Southern Cal.

    USC can pay him what ever they need to keep him.

    There is nothing better than that...

    I agree with you BZ...that sounds like a great life. But there are many stories and rumors in SF that have him coming to the Niners and bringing Leinart with him.

    Why else would Chow not leave?

    Chow's been a bigtime assistant for well over 20 years--I don't see any reason that he needs to start over as a HC, especially as the highest-paid asst in CFB with a couple of rings already.

    But of course I wouldn't mind seeing Petey return to his losing ways in the NFL one bit.

    Because he wants to - the because Everest is there I must climb it mentality. Its the last notch in his belt.
    Unlikely as hell to happen. He has consistently stated he _greatly_ favors college over pro. It'd take more than a boat-load of money to get him to go back to the NFL.

    Chow has stated time and time again that he loves what he's doing as OC...he wants nothing to do with becoming a HC. What other OC in college football is more well known than 80% of the HCs?

    Then why did they say on the telecast last night about how distraught he was over not getting the Stanford job?

    Beats the hell out of me!!

    Just heard on 1460 tonight that he's really been down in the dumps since he hasn't got a head coaching job yet.

    Don't know where Mililani came up with that nonsense.

    It was during one of the broadcasts of a USC game eariler in the season where one of the commentators reacted to a statement along the lines of "Why hasn't anyone hired Chow as a head coach?", with a response that Chow doesn't want to be anything other than an OC and just loves running the offense at USC. Hey, if he really wanted to be a HC, then why hasn't he interviewed directly for any of the other HC openings? He's had plenty of opportunities (didn't he just all but tell Syracuse "Thanks but not thanks"?).

    FYI....Fox is reporting that Erickson (sp) and Donahue (sp) are on their way out in SF.
