Turner Gill

As much as everyone seems to want Bo Pelini as the next head coach (a thing I would not be totally against) I would much rather see Turner Gill. A former Husker player and coach Gill is the one to lead the turn around at NU.

Gill is a proven winner as a player. He went 28-2 as a starting qb. He finished 4th in the Heisman voting his senior year.

Gill has also served as an assistant coach for NUs past 3 head coaches(Osborne, Solich, and Callahan). He studied football as both a player and coach under Tom Osborne, the greatest coach in NU history. He coached 2 qbs who lead NU to national titles (3 if you count Brook)and one Hiesman winner. This shows he knows how to develop talent, something the current staff must have no idea how to do. He also has a reputation as an excellent recruiter.

As a head coach at Buffalo he has taken probably the worst team in the NCAA and turned them into a winner in two years. They have won more games under Gill then they had in the previous 5 years combined. He currently has them in first place in the MAC East division.

While Gill, 44, is not as firey as Bo Pelini on the sidelines he carries himself with a confident demeanor (much the same as TO himself) and is very well respected by players and coaches alike. He may very well be the only head coach that Bo would return to NU and be the DC for. And that is a capacity I would rather see Pelini in.

So if you are looking for a man who knows how to motivate players, develop talent, carry himself with class and dignity, is well respected, and is a proven winner both as a player and a coach the Turner Gill is your man.
