Would be quite nice if we can land a guy of his caliber to a 10th assistant spot.

You are only as big as the sheeple say you are.

Well he's not going to be 10th in pay. I guarantee you that.

If he is on the university website he is on the payroll. So welcome coach Grinch beat the school up north.

Nice investigative journalism, bro.

I was listening to a podcast about hiring exceptional candidates and thought, "speaking of exceptional candidates, I wonder if Grinch is on the payroll yet?" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I would recommend changing the title. You're not giving yourself/this information enough credit.

Here here. Thanks, UrbzRenewal. This is the reason I visit 11W x100 daily.

He can't legally be a 10th assistant until 1/9, so my guess is his title changes then.  Probably wanted to get those dollars now, though.

If he has school age kids, they probably wanted to get moved during break. OSU won't pay you a dime until you are in the HR system.

Yep. Takes a week to get all of the paperwork done so this the title was just to get him in to get the paperwork rolling now.

That's probably a fill in title to hire and get him on school employee now for the time being.

Inclined to agree. 

Either way, I'm happy Alex Grinch is on staff.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

It'll be interesting to see what type of hands on coaching he brings and what position group he'll handle the most.

And his OSU email is ironically Grinch10.....

Here's to better coverage by safeties and LBs!

EDIT: What's with that title though? Schiano and Wilson are both listed as "Assistant Coach-Major Sports"

HS

The leading guess is that OSU can't have another assistant until 1/9 but still wants to pay him in between now and then. So he's a non-assistant, until then, when his title will change.

He's probs not too sad to be leaving Wash State after that bowl game, although he won't get as much pirate themed swag from Leach anymore.

Seems like a good thing.

My guess is if they made it official now, the ncaa would give us a 4 year post season ban, a loss of 15 scholarships per year for 10 years. Meanwhile down in the SEC, players at Alabama are still driving around convertibles, flashing money on twitter and the ncaa is like nothing to see here. Over at North Carolina, they have completely gotten rid of all acedemic requirements because at North Carolina, you really dont go their to play school.

Ehhh. I am guessing you dont follow Damon Arnette on Instagram. Def not an Alabama/SEC unique problem.

So, my question - Schiano thought he was going to be moving on before we even played Wisconsin (not that he would leave before the game, but he had agreed in principle with the SEC Browns). Was Grinch originally going to be offered the DC position as his replacement, or is he just a potential 10th coach. Huge difference, IMO. Could he be a replacement for Davis, who was given only a one year contract, at LB?  Or maybe he was our safety net DC, and then we’d go after a bigger fish?  Do we know anything about the backstory that got us looking at him in the first place?

Given the fact that he was obviously a DC for a Power 5 school-and a successful one-I doubt he was being brought in to be a video coordinator-he knows his own career trajectory. It looks like Schiano will be here for the 18' season-somewhat unexpectedly, so I imagine he will have some sort of title like Assistant DC or whatnot-pave the way.

FWIW, did anyone else see that Dave Aranda-Wisky/LSU DC is getting $2.5 mil to be Jimbo's new DC at A&M?

Correction....He is getting 2.5mil to stay at LSU...

I'm beyond blessed. I'd prefer to be one of DJ's sources tbh tho.

I am not buying it. There are probably a lot of people named Alexander Gregory Grinch that work at the WHAC

I'm not that familiar with rules for coaching limits, etc.  Does this hire mean (1) we were under the limit before, or (2) we are losing (or lost) some coach unbeknownst to me?

The NCAA raised the limit on the amount of coaches you can have. They added one more slot to bring the total to 10.
