- Kragthorpe first noticed symptoms during summer camp
- While being news to us, the staff was informed about 2 weeks ago, at which point it was decided that OL coach Greg Studrawa would become the OC. The players were informed yesterday during team meetings.
- Kragthorpe will stay on as QB coach for as long as he is able, " I hope for the next 8 to 12 years I can still be here coaching the QBs."
- Final decision on play-calling will rest with Studrawa (and, obviously, Miles), though Kragthorpe will be involved in the huddle in every play.
- Coach Stud isn't walking into the role without experience. He was the OC of some highly ranked squads at Bowling Green from 03-06
There are questions that need answering, namely why Coach Stud over Billy Gonzales, but for now let's all say a prayer for the Kragthorpe family. Kragthorpe is returning to the coaching world this season after walking away from a job at Texas A&M to be with his wife as she recovered from treatment for MS. As Miles reminds us:
It's not all about the game. It's about who you share it with.
