    I'm glad Ligashesky was kept. I thought he did a fairly good job, and should get better with more experience.

    Boudreau is a very good hire. He's an Old School guy, kind of like Jim Hanifan. I remember when he was the long time (7-8 years) line coach of the Dolphins.

      I like the hiring of moses as the running backs coach. I am hoping that they hire elijah as his assistant. Elijah can be tough to see, but he can really hit the hole.

          Re: Some KFFL Notes. Alot of hirings.

          Here is some info on Holt from http://www.uiathletics.com/pages/spo...=764&PageID=39
          The Nick Holt era began officially at the University of Idaho with the Dec. 8, 2003 announcement of his hiring as the 31st head football coach for the Vandals.

          “This is a great opportunity,” Holt said. “This is what I’ve been working for for 17 years. You get in this profession and you say, ‘Someday I’m going to run my own program and be my own guy and have my own philosophy.’ I’m excited about the opportunity.

          “I’ve learned under some great, great coaches. I’ve seen a couple systems take hold and work. I really have a good blueprint on how to do things and I’m real fortunate I had such mentors as John L. (Smith) and Chris (Tormey) and especially Pete Carroll.”

          Holt returns to Moscow after a six-year hiatus, which includes three seasons at top-ranked and Rose Bowl-bound USC under Carroll and three at Louisville with Smith. He was defensive coordinator for Tormey at UI from 1995-97.

          “This is an exciting day for Vandal football,” said Rob Spear, UI’s director of athletics. “The process may have taken a little longer than we initially planned but we believe strongly the extra time was well worth it in our ability to hire a coach of Nick’s caliber.

          “After our interview with Nick, there was no doubt we had our man. We just needed to convince him.”

          Holt said he had some bases to cover before making the decision to return to the school where he’d spent eight years as an assistant.

          “I had to talk it over with my family and talk it over with my boss at USC (Pete Carroll),” Holt said. “It took some decision-making because I was at the best place in America working for the best head coach in America.

          “But, there comes a point where you have to do things your way. You only get so many opportunities in life. This is a great opportunity. I love it here.”

          Holt, who was linebackers coach at USC, returns to Moscow the day after the Trojans climbed to No. 1 in both the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN Top 25 polls. The Trojans are the Pac 10’s best in rushing defense and scoring defense – both big selling points for Spear and interim UI president Gary Michael. Counting this year’s Trojans, Holt will have coached six successive bowl teams.

          “We wanted someone from a proven program with a proven system,” Spear said. “We also wanted someone with strong ties to the Northwest and someone who shares our vision and passion for the University of Idaho.

          “Nick is that – and more. He also brings a national reach as far as recruiting and in his ability to build a staff.”

          Holt said his top priorities over the next 10 days are to define his staff, get to know the players on campus, and hit the recruiting trail.

          Holt’s ties to UI are strong. He coached UI’s defensive line from 1990-93 and was the Vandals’ defensive coordinator from 1994-1997. He doubled as defensive line coach in 1994 and as linebackers coach for the remainder of his UI tenure. His wife, Julie, was UI’s women’s basketball coach for four seasons.

          Memories of those days were a big part of the draw for Holt to the UI job.

          “It’s a great town,” he said, “but it’s the people. It’s the tradition. It’s the Vandal family. It’s a really special place. People don’t realize that until they come here and they stay a few years. It grows on you.

          “It’s just a love affair between the program, the community and the state. I don’t think a lot of placesw have that but this place does.”
          Ron Milus from http://gohuskies.collegesports.com/s...071698aad.html
          Ron Milus

          Defensive Secondary Coach

          Free Safeties/Cornerbacks

          Ron Milus, one of five former Husky players on the current coaching staff, enters his seventh season as the free safety/cornerbacks coach this fall. In his previous seasons, he has done a great deal to make Washington one of the top interception teams in the Pac-10. The 1992 squad was third in the league before the 1993 Huskies picked off 22 passes to lead the nation. In 1994 UW finished fourth in the conference with 13 picks and in 1995 the Huskies topped the Pac-10 with 16 interceptions.

          The past two years he has worked with two-year returning starters Mel Miller and Jermaine Smith.

          In addition to coaching the defensive backs, Milus assists with Washington's special teams. His off-field responsibilities include scouting, study hall, summer film and film exchange. Milus is a member of the American Football Coaches Association.

          Milus coached at Washington as a graduate assistant in 1991 after having served as an assistant to his father, Bill Milus, at Lincoln High in Tacoma for three seasons. He helped coach former All-American Lawyer Milloy while at Lincoln. When Milus joined the Husky staff on a full-time basis, he became the first of Don James' players to coach at Washigton. At the time, he was also the youngest assistant coach in the Pac-10 at just 28 years old.

          Milus graduated from the UW with a degree in society and justice in 1986 after earning four letters as a standout cornerback and return specialist (1982-85). He returned 49 punts for 410 yards and a touchdown during his career while registering 83 tackles, five interceptions and 10 pass deflections. In 1984, he won the most improved defensive back award during spring practice and still ranks in the top 10 in Husky history in punt return yardage. As a junior he finished fourth in the nation in punt returns with a 12.4 average on 17 runbacks.

          After his college career, Milus spent a season with the San Diego Chargers.

          Milus was born Nov. 25, 1963, in Tacoma and played for coach Jack Newhart at Lincoln, where he was an all-league selection. He won the Norm Mayer Memorial Award in 1981 as Tacoma's most outstanding player. As a senior he rushed for 1,003 yards in high school.

          He and his wife Sandra have two young sons, Ryan (seven) and Bobby (three).
