    What are you guys hearing about your DC? I'm hearing that he is interviewing with LSU and is very interested in the job.

    I've heard nothing.

    Seems like a lateral move to me.

    I wouldn't think Snyder would move unless he has the chance to be a HC.

    Haven't heard a word but I'm sure Les Miles has plenty of respect for him after the Alamo

    Wouldn't that be a lateral move? What is the point?

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    I wouldn't see the sense in that, yes... He shut down oOSU's offense but he is still just coming off his first yr as a DC, and as has been mentioned it would be lateral. I thought they were looking at Campo?

    It's not even a lateral move. OSU is close to home. LSU doesn't have AJ Hawk or Ted Ginn.

    considering we have co-defensive coordinators, I would assume that Mel Tucker would be the name you are talking about if true. He may have put in some time down at LSU as well. If Les Miles were able to sway Mel from Ohio State that would be a great addition for LSU considering Tucker's expirience. But, there hasn't been talk about it around here.

    I appreciate it guys.......there was some talk from people who claim to be "insiders" on a couple of our boards, and, when someone is talking about a coach from another team, I always try to gauge what the fans of that team think about that coach.

    He is supposedly the most lax recruiter on our staff....you can have him and that will keep Tucker here longer and make room for another coach.

    That would be in title only...Snyder calls the defensive shots.

    heacock?
    tucker?-saban guy at msu, went to miami oh, then back to saban at lsu
    snyder?

    tucker is the most logical guy from these "insiders"

    Snyder

    Someone on thier board is claiming the Snyder has taken the job already.

    This would make no sense at all.
    I think this Mr. Someone needs to cut back on the paint chips.

    just called someone who would certainly know......and his indication is that this is just a rumor.....but he will dive deeper...

    After working a year to settle in a defensive scheme and getting it to work well against UM and Okla State, and sitting on the cusp of what could be a national championship year, Snyder has decided to leave?

    For LSU after a post-NC season and the letdown and criticism that will follow anything but a NC this year?

    I think its more likely that Snyder teams up with Eddie Money for one more shot at rock stardom!

    Never know, people do strange things, but can we please move this to the Rumor Mill? This is the kind of thing that unsettles recruits at the last minute and I must admit that I am very, very strongly suspicious.

    Defensive coordinator interviews for job at LSU
    Friday, January 21, 2005

    A report from Baton Rouge, La., last night said Ohio State defensive coordinator Mark Snyder has been interviewed for the same job at Louisiana State.

    Snyder could not be reached for comment last night.

    He was interviewed by new LSU coach Les Miles yesterday, LSU athletics director Skip Bertman told the Baton Rouge Advocate. It was not known whether Snyder was offered the position.

    The attraction appears obvious, though, because Miles just moved from Oklahoma State two weeks ago to succeed Nick Saban. The Ohio State defense smothered Miles’ offense in the Buckeyes’ 33-7 win in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29.

    Miles interviewed at least three other candidates for the job but was rebuffed by all three.

    Snyder, a native of Ironton and a graduate of Marshall, has been at Ohio State all four of the Jim Tressel seasons. Previously the linebackers coach, he was named defensive coordinator this time a year ago, replacing Mark Dantonio, who left to become coach at Cincinnati.
