Coaches Bolting from the MWC??? - Colorado Springs, Colorado Recent rumors are that 2 coaches of the MWC have been contacted about potential job openings in more prestigious conferences. One can assume that the 2 coaches in questions would be Coach Dru of the Houston Cougars and Coach Papa of the Nevada Wolf Pack. Coach Dru drove the Cougars through a tough schedule that included Big 12 member Oklahoma. The season was very successful as Houston finished undefeated and ranked #3 in the BCS. One can only assume that the reason Coach Dru is leaving is because he is loosing star QB Case Keenum among other great seniors that helped get them to their highest BCS ranking in school history. Even with that it would have to be an offer from a historically great school that has a solid tradition and only needs a superb leader like Coach Dru to push theirselves back to the top. Coach Papa has some pretty good reasons as well. His team finished 8-4 but 4th in the MWC. His team didn't manage to beat any of the 3 schools ahead of them but there were 2 games that were really close and the 3rd finished in a blowout against Houston once Nevada had electrical difficulties and were unable to call in plays from the booth late in the 4th. Coach Papa has been mulling over this decision for a while after losing tough recruiting battles for in-state prospects. "If you can't keep a pipeline in your own state, its hard to stay competitive," Coach Papa told the press, "I just think that this opportunity may be my last and I need to strike while the iron's hot." Sources say that Papa has been contacted by schools from the Pac-10, Big 12, and the ACC.
