Eastern had very high expectations when he got the job. First time head coaching jobs can be hard. He has some talent, I expect some D1 transfers. He uses the run, and passing games well. I like this hire. The Sun may be rising on MSU football again. :thumbup:

Record of 55-38 (44-19 conference) with 2 titles in his tenure at EKU sounds pretty good to this Racer fan! Make Racer football great again LOL!

Well I didn’t look but I’ll say this, if they fired him with a 44-19 conf record and two conference titles they got what they deserved and are dumb as rocks cause they haven’t approached it since. Admittedly, I haven’t kept up with 1AA football much since we gave up on it

Edit: Just looked and that is spot on. Two championships, 4 second places and a 4th and 5th. Lol wow I stand corrected efan, y’all should be pissed for what you traded him for (15-16 with a 3rd, 4th, 5th and 8th place finish). Wow and yes I’d be thrilled with that.

https://www.courier-journal.com/story/s ... 391815002/ He made 375k this year.
Hmmm. Reportedly he'll get a base salary of $190K at MSU. I wonder if related income (shoe contracts, coach's show, etc.) of being a head coach gets him up anywhere near $375K? If so, imagine what the Coach Cals and Coach Ks of the world REALLY rake in.

I don't know what the record will be next year, but I predict the fundamentals will be better, things done more efficiently, and very professionally. Coach Hood wants the players to enjoy football. Enjoying the game is easier when you play well and have a chance to win. What we have had for the last fifteen years has been nothing short of miserable, with poor techniques in tackling, poor special teams, bonehead penalties, and a one dimensional offense. We will see a different team next year, that will be ready to play. I firmly believe we have good players that with a few additions should be competitive in all their FCS matchups. I don't expect perfection, or for there not to be some disappointments next year, but I do expect Murray State to look like an organized, disciplined team that other teams will overlook at their own peril. :clap: :clap:

The funny part of all this is that eku fans have more posts on this topic than us. Also got very heated and personal. What are they so worried about? Hmmm :think:

If a wasn’t tired of the “ Dean Hood” regurgitate, I would breakdown his record for you in more detail. But know he is a good man and will be a much better coach than you have had in the past. Looking forward to more games under the lights , like the one in 1982 !! Ted Turner said let there be lights at Roy Kidd Stadium.. What a game that was ...!!!
