Edwards A Long Shot For San Diego State Job

After firing Chuck Long Sunday afternoon, the San Diego State Aztecs have begun the search for a new football coach. One of the places they might look could be in Kansas City.

San Diego State administration gave Long a vote of confidence after reports surfaced in early November that he would be fired. Even so, school President Stephen Webber and Athletic Director Jeff Schemmel were busy talking with boosters to raise the necessary funds to buy Long out of the final two years of his contract.

In order to do that, they had to raise $1.4 million. They came up $400,000 short, but made up the difference via the administration’s coffers. Now the search begins to replace Long.

Per an NFL source, who spoke on condition of anonymity to Warpaint Illustrated.com Monday morning, Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Herm Edwards could be a potential target to replace Long. Edwards has ties to San Diego State, where he played his Senior year of college football.

The Aztecs are in the midst of their third head-coaching search since December 2001 and there’s heat on the University from boosters to get the program back on track. The question right now is who will pick Long’s successor.

Schemmel was not at Sunday’s press conference and is undergoing surgery for a hip infection. Aztec boosters reportedly are trying to get him fired, also.

However, if Schemmel can attract a coach like Edwards, it might save his job and please not only the boosters, but San Diego State’s President, who were not thrilled about the Long hire two years ago.

Our league source, who was speculating on the prospects of Edwards coaching the Aztecs next season, said, “What young recruit would be able to resist Edwards’ passion for the game?”

The Chiefs, mired in another losing season under Edwards, took a step backward on Sunday in KC’s 54-31 loss at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. After going 1-19 over the last 20 games, speculation about jobs at One Arrowhead Drive is running rampant.

The main issue, however, will be money. Edwards, who is in the third year of a four-year contract that pays him $3 million per season, will require similar money before he would even consider a coaching change.

His current salary is at the high end of the pay scale in college football and our NFL source said it’s unlikely the Aztecs could pay Edwards the same salary. Thus, Edwards’ return to his Alma Mater is a long shot.

Edwards will likely be eliminated early in the Aztecs’ search because of the abundance of California recruits who are still undecided about their college futures. Any new head coach would need to be settled quickly in December, hire his staff, and get out on the recruiting trail right away.

Edwards isn’t the only candidate the Aztecs could be looking at, according to the San Diego Union Tribune. Former Auburn coach Terry Bowden is interested in the job and has gone on record saying he’d listen if the Aztecs called about the opening.

Other emerging candidates include former Kansas Jayhawks and Minnesota Gophers Head Coach Glen Mason, current Montana Head Coach Bobby Hauck, and former NFL head coaches Denny Green and Lane Kiffin.

Those names alone make it unlikely that Edwards would jump from the NFL to college. To take the job, he’d have to leave the Chiefs before the season ends, and it’s unlikely he’d do that to the Hunt family, his players, and his current coaching staff.

Dear Mr. San Diego State Hiring Guy,

My name is Rain Man, and I am a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs. Please consider this a letter of reference for Mr. Herman Edwards, who I understand is a candidate for your head coaching position.

I watched with interest when Mr. Herman Edwards was hired by former United States Football League Champion Mr. Carl Peterson. Mr. Peterson implemented a nationwide search of people he was friends with, and I think it says a lot that he picked Mr. Edwards over the other two people.

When Mr. Edwards arrived on the Chiefs campus, our football team was horribly unbalanced. We had a record-breaking offense, but our defense was quite bad. We're talking really bad. Syracuse bad. It was a situation that had to change.

And change it did. Mr. Edwards worked his Meadowlands magic, and now, just three years later, our offense and defense, and even the special teams, are nearly equally ranked. He built an amazingly balanced team where no individual unit is any better than any other individual unit. That, Mr. Hiring Guy, is the way you build a team.

Mr. Edwards was instrumental in implementing a new system of change in Kansas City. His efforts have lowered ticket prices by upwards of 90 percent, meaning that anyone who wants to can go see a Chiefs game in person. He saved the owners of the team millions of dollars by replacing players like Willie Roaf, Will Shields, and Trent Green, all high-priced veterans, with new players who were willing to play for much less money. He appears to have broken the longstanding Chiefs curse of losing in the first round of the playoffs. And last but not least, Mr. Edwards has been instrumental in obtaining the highest draft choices the Chiefs have had in over 40 years!

While all of us in Kansas City have come to see Mr. Edwards as a symbol of this franchise and its philosophy, we nonetheless would like to see Mr. Edwards have the opportunity to work his magic for others. It's simply not fair that we've had him for three years now. So in that vein, please accept my most heartfelt wish that you will announce him as your new head coach as soon as possible.

Yours Truly,

Mr. Rain Man

P.S. If I may be forward, former United States Football League Champion Carl Peterson is another person who would blend right in with a struggling college program.

Herm would be a great college coach. He's the ultimate bullshit peddler, full of bluster and no substance, and doesn't know X's and O's to save his ass. He would have been a great hire for UC"R"A.

Oh man oh man.... the possibilities I could take that post. But out of respect to you, I will refrain...

But yes, this is the best news I have heard as a Chiefs fan since 2006 when Herm was hired... Even if not true, it gives us HOPE that we will be back in the NFL soon... We are even coached well enough to be considered developmental league....

If SD state can't afford Herm, you could raise his first year salary by passing the bucket at Arrowhead next home game. Seriously.

Bob Dole won't be at Arrowhead and will pledge 10% of his annual income, if it means that Tok...er, Herman will go away.

Dear Mr. San Diego State Hiring Guy,

My name is Rain Man, and I am a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs. Please consider this a letter of reference for Mr. Herman Edwards, who I understand is a candidate for your head coaching position.

I watched with interest when Mr. Herman Edwards was hired by former United States Football League Champion Mr. Carl Peterson. Mr. Peterson implemented a nationwide search of people he was friends with, and I think it says a lot that he picked Mr. Edwards over the other two people.

When Mr. Edwards arrived on the Chiefs campus, our football team was horribly unbalanced. We had a record-breaking offense, but our defense was quite bad. We're talking really bad. Syracuse bad. It was a situation that had to change.

And change it did. Mr. Edwards worked his Meadowlands magic, and now, just three years later, our offense and defense, and even the special teams, are nearly equally ranked. He built an amazingly balanced team where no individual unit is any better than any other individual unit. That, Mr. Hiring Guy, is the way you build a team.

Mr. Edwards was instrumental in implementing a new system of change in Kansas City. His efforts have lowered ticket prices by upwards of 90 percent, meaning that anyone who wants to can go see a Chiefs game in person. He saved the owners of the team millions of dollars by replacing players like Willie Roaf, Will Shields, and Trent Green, all high-priced veterans, with new players who were willing to play for much less money. He appears to have broken the longstanding Chiefs curse of losing in the first round of the playoffs. And last but not least, Mr. Edwards has been instrumental in obtaining the highest draft choices the Chiefs have had in over 40 years!

While all of us in Kansas City have come to see Mr. Edwards as a symbol of this franchise and its philosophy, we nonetheless would like to see Mr. Edwards have the opportunity to work his magic for others. It's simply not fair that we've had him for three years now. So in that vein, please accept my most heartfelt wish that you will announce him as your new head coach as soon as possible.

Yours Truly,

Mr. Rain Man

P.S. If I may be forward, former United States Football League Champion Carl Peterson is another person who would blend right in with a struggling college program.

Great letter. If that doesn't do it nothing will.

I'm willing to write a letter of reference.


I kind of wish I was a football coach. You can lose 19 of 20 games and still be considered worth hiring?

Not one of those losses is Herm's fault. Each and every one of them, is either Dick Vermiel's, or one of the players faults.

If Herm could do everything himself, this team would have a perfect record.

Wouldn't it be ironic though, if he just jumped ship for SDS before the season was over, depriving the masses of the satisfaction of seeing him shitcanned?

It doesn't matter how it happens, no deprivation here, just get the fuck gone!

I don't mind being deprived of a shit sandwich.

I am impressed. I would love to see him gone, and would contribute, but not near to that extent.

All kidding aside, this may be the way to get Clark's attention.

Similar story here. My parents were primitive tribal villagers, and as a child I ate the pigs that my mom's village gave to my dad to arrange the marriage.

I would like to make a donation to the San Diego State booster club. If Chiefs fans would donate just $5 towards his college salary we just might get him out of here.:evil:

As probably the lone SDSU fan on the board, here is the order of interest I have in the named coaches.

1. Terry Bowden
2. Lane Kiffin
3. Herm Edwards
4. Denny Green
5. Anyone else

I'd be happy with Bowden, but Herm is THE SAVIOR. He is meant for the college game and meant for SDSU.
God, help them.

I think Herm would be a great choice for SDSU. (No, I'm not kidding.)

He's way over his head here, but I think he could have a lot of success in a situation like that.

Buck

That was funny, but I think Herm is more suited for the College game.

College teams can be 1 dimensional and still have success, while thats impossible in the NFL.

I think it's an even better fit with him having ties with the school.

I think it's an even better fit with him having ties with the school.The guy's got the charisma to be an amazing recruiter, and there's a ton of talent in that area.

I'm not saying it will happen. Actually I doubt it. I just think if it did, he'd have a great shot at being successful there.

Sounds like a great story to float if you're trying to create the illusion that you're in demand when you're trying to get an extension.
