Anyhow, back to Layer...interesting intertwining history with McKay and Buzz.

In 1998 He goes to CSU under McKay.  When McKay leaves in 2000 to go to Oregon State, Layer gets the CSU job.  He hires Buzz who stays until 2004 (when he goes to A&M).  Layer gets canned in 2007, and goes to be an assistant at Liberty, under McKay.  In 2008, Layer leaves Liberty to be an assistant under Buzz.  When McKay leaves Liberty in 2009 (for an associate position at Virginia?), Layer gets the Liberty job.

Did I get that all correct?

Does that mean, Layer will now be hiring Buzz as HIS assistant - just to complete the cycle?   :'(

If that happens we will have every UNO fan's empathy.  Leaving an HC job to become an assistant... for shame.

Why is everyone so down?

It's great news because...

HERE COMES GILLESPIE!






Good luck to Layer.

Let's get a hard-working recruiter and/or expert with the X's and O's (Will Buzz tab Lewis Orr?) to replace coach Dale.

It actually goes back even further than that.  In Layer's second year as the head coach at Queens College in 1989 he hired Richie McKay as an assistant, which basically set this whole thing in motion.
