We have had a couple of days to process the news of Jonathan Smith being hired to become the new head football coach for our Spartans. After months of us arguing about who we would get and campaigning for our favorite candidate, we have the answer that we all now are anxious to see how it works out. But that will not stop us from trying to predict the future. So here are a few questions for you about the selection. Let us know what you think.

Please share in the comments which of the assistants who are coming along you are excited about and which you are unmoved by. Are you worried that there are not more new coaches with Midwest connections?

It looks like Smith is bringing his DB coach from OSU so that role won’t go to Barnett. If he is retained, what role would you like him to have?
