As far as I know Ford hasn't got a coaching offer anywhere and I attend Mayville State. He does have the guys in the right direction so to speak but I don't think after 3 wins in two seasons he's going to be getting too many offers. Mayville needs to start recruiting locally and bring about half as many guys from the coast out here.

I could see him getting a defensive coordinator position at a d-2 school. THe thing that I found refreshing about this season was that he got the team to play focused and to belief that they could compete with anyone. Now they just have to start pulling off some of the close games.

I won't disagree with your opinion to cut football. Unfortunately, Mayville State must keep the sport to stay in the DAC.

How much longer will the DAC be around?? Mary left a few years ago and they still haven't been replaced them so they have to play each other twice a year. At some point another school is gonna move I would think.

I don't see there being a problem with the DAC going away. There are 8 schools with football in the confernce. That is definitely not too small of a number for a conference. I don't understand why they are scheduling the extra non conference game. I think they need to try a bit harder to find a game to fill that spot. Maybe the conference could find another conference to work with to play the 10th game. I would think they could find schools in Iowa, Nebraska, Minn., or Montana to play.
As far as getting rid of the program that is rediculous. I said it before and I will say it again. These schools need to try to recuit more locally. That is what is going to get people to go to the games. If I live in the area and my kid is playing for a local college, I am gonna go to the games. People are not showing up to watch a bunch of strangers from a different state. The appeal is not there like it is for the bigger schools. The first step to building success in a program is creating revenue. Parents will go no matter how successful the program. More people in the seats means more revenue. More revenue will help build a stronger program.

I am so with you on that. If you are a fund-raiser and trying to get local money for scholarships. Why not see the teams recruit locally and put the money in the hands of local kids that at least have a 50/50 shot of staying in the state after graduation. Makes me sick to see a kid from south, east or west coast take local scholarship money and then when that dries up, you never see them in ND again.

I disagree that mayville does not try to recruit locally. Just last week he met with thirty players from the area and took them to the local pizza place for a recruiting trip. The thing that makes me sick is that there isn't more kids from the area who want to play college football. BUt once again it comes down to the fact that kids don't want to win three games in four years. I would rather see good athletes from another region than kids from around here who don't care. If coach ford could build a program around kids from just this area he would.

well horne98, scc, and anyone else mayville whose the next contestant as the Mayville State head coach??? I believe he makes it offical to the player tomorrow. I'd say if there is anybody with local or state ties to hire them...if ya hire a coach from out of state he will either be fired or leave like ford did within 3 to 4 years.

It sounds like Nathan Chin will be named either head coach or interim head coach. He is the offensive coordinator right now and has held the position for the past two years. I hope they open up the position again, I know of a couple coaches in the area who have ties to the university and have plenty of expierence but who knows if they are interested in the job at all.

I know I'm homerish when I say it but they made the mistake by not hiring Oksendahl a couple years ago. He couldn't have done any worse then the last two head coaches. I say ya hire from within in if your successful, mayville has not so i dont think chin should be the man. just my thought.

I do wish they would open up the position and get a strong local coach who can recruit the area. Giving it to the o-coordinator would be a mistake in my opinion.

Best case scenario - local coach, lots of ties with local high school coaches and players, and recruit like crazy within a 100 mile or so radius; that means Fargo and Grand Forks too - lots of quality kids in those programs that don't go on to college football because nobody recruits them.

I won't fault you for being a homer. I, too, thought he was the best candidate.

Is there any truth to the rumor that no search will take place? I heard Chin is the new head coach, but without the interim label.

He was hired to keep team unity. A lot of guys wouldn't have stayed if they didn't know who their coach was so late in the school year. I wish him the best of luck, because he was the guy hired all the rest is under the bridge.

I played at Mayville a long time ago worst season 5-4, best 6-3. Al Homes was the coach he had kids from Drake, Fisher, GF, Grafton, a bunch from Central Valley and M-P and Hatton. The stands were full. After graduation when Stan Rettew was there I called and said "hey there are a few kids from here and ther that could play'" NO ONE CONTACTED THEM. Coach holmes had us make lists of kids that we played against and with that we thought would be players, what a great idea. Football is a game of numbers and I hope that there could be as many local kids on the roster at Mayville as ther is at Jamestown or Minot. Some of my teammates have kids old enough to play-there parents are alums. No body talked to them. It would not tke much to have some of these kids come play. The local sports writer in the Mayville paper jabs Stephen -Argyle Football. How many Borowitz's and other kids from that area were real good 4 year athletes at Mayville. Get local kids to play-they bring buddies with. If there is local kids, ND and MN You will get $$$$ support. The other number part of football.

Anybody know what recruits MaSU got this year? I saw VCSU got a bunch of talented local kids....wish Mayville would do the same. At least there would be more interest in the team and more fans in the stands.

I have checked there website and have not seen anything there or in the local papers.

I'm guessing we won't see anything real offical with them tell the season starts, cause they probably don't even know who will show up come August. For the few scholarships they give out, no one that says they are going to Mayville has to.
