Maybe Missouri Sate is not an apples to apples comparison, since Petrino has turned them around with so many transfers.

On the other hand, Montana State was an almost-there team in the Big Sky and Vigen has made the difference that put them on top of the BSC -in his first year. It feels like UND is where Montana State was: on the cusp, looking for the right fit to get them to the next level.

MSU made the semi finals in 2019.  Vigen has simply maintained what Choate built

Made the playoffs, but finished in the top third of the BSC. MSU was not conference champions.

With their unbalanced schedule it's tough to gauge, it's not a given, but Vigen walked into a football first school with great facilities, all he has to do is not screw it up.

I think it's more accurate to say Choate elevated the program and left Vigen in a very good spot.  We won't know how good Vigen is for a couple years.

semi finalist for UND football head coaching  position in 2013 now to be hired as head coach of power 5 conference team, University of Washington Huskies. 
 

point of this, don’t hire hometown familiarities, hire the best coach, that’s it. Missed opportunity as far as I’m concerned.

I agree with you here. I was all in on DeBoer.

Doesn't seem like they learned much, if you look at the most recent hiring for WBB.

too soon!!!!!!

just hire the best person regardless if they hang with gfhockey at judy's....

daboer was the best on paper but bubba got it and if he's anything he consistent (50/50).....

on the bballside jeff boshee was a wildcard but you could't say sather wasn't deserving of his post considering what he was doing at northern....

It is interesting he never got his first head coaching job until last year. EDIT: Since interviewing for the UND job in 2013. He left Sioux Falls in 2009.
Just keep moving up the ranks as an OC/QB coach.

Obviously you weren't paying attention when the University of Sioux Falls was our opponent.

If we had the money for MBB we should have hired McCollum. Guys a star and applied.

Poor wording on my part.
Last fall at Fresno was his first head coaching job since interviewing for the head job at UND in 2013/14. He had not been a head coach since leaving Sioux Falls in 2009.
While it obviously worked out for him, it was just a comment that he ended up continuing to climb as a coordinator instead of taking a head coaching job somewhere and going that route.

I'm sure he had many HC offers just didn't like any of them or wasn't a good fit at the time.
