Howard Calls a Press Conference

According to Tim Reynolds (AP writer), Howard has called a 4pm press conference, according to the twitter blurb, presumably to discuss his future as FAU coach. Sorry, i can't post a link from work but you can check it out at @ByTimReynolds.

Hmmm…this will be interesting.   :o

Thought Coach and the AD wanted to remain quiet about his future until the end of the season. I hope they do announced that it is Howard's last season as HC for FAU.

That way the new guy can start recruiting his guys and our current players will want to end Howard's career on a high note.

They are going to announce its his last year so people can buy season tickets.  Good marketing!

Re: Howard Calls a Press Conference

Ted's blog makes it seem like there may be some health issues.  Hopefully that is not the case and they are simply announcing that this will be his final season.  I'd hate for Coach not to be able to leave on his own terms and get the opportunity to coach in the new stadium.  If that is what they are announcing, it's a good move to make the decision now for recruiting purposes.  Naming a head coach in waiting would be even better, but we'll have to wait and see.  I wonder if this will be broadcast anywhere.  You'd think fausports.com would have it streaming.

haha..how could I not? lol

On a more serious note, I sure do hope it has nothing to do with Coach's health. Ya, I'm all for Leach, but I'd hate for Coach to have to hang it up like that. He has been watching practice from the balcony the past few days so maybe it is his health, or maybe he just wants a higher vantage point? Who knows..let's hope for the best!

I hope it is not serious for Coach.  I defiitely would not fault him for retiring while on Top!  I believe if that is what he is announcing it will motivate our team to play above their heads and leave everything on the field each game.  Each player will want to have him to retire with a big celebration and not be a team to let him down!

My absolute hope is that it is not his health!

Re: Howard Calls a Press Conference

Hmmm. Well, I know I'm in a minority (as usual) in this string, but (1) I hope Coach Schnellenberger has no health problems, (2) I hope he coaches as long as he is able and (3) I would hate to see Leach come to FAU. Why buy trouble when enough comes along of its own accord?

Re: Howard Calls a Press Conference

My gut is telling me this will be an announcment that this his is last year as Head Coach. I doubt they name a successor today, but would imagine they would announce the start of a Head Coach search. I would imagine that sort of news would of leaked out, especially if it was Leach, Shannon etc.

Unless this is PURELY coach's decesion he should absolutely be coaching in this stadium this year. He is owed that and more. If he feels he cant do it, then we have to respect that but I will be very sad to see him not coach in it.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.
