The working week is almost up with still no head coaching announcement from Guelph.
Spring football is in two weeks for most teams in eastern and central Canada, so one has to believe the decision to hire Stu Lang is coming sooner rather than later. It is unconfirmed by Guelph, but Gryphons players have been told there is a meeting on Saturday. It's not going to be about ordering T-shirts.
Mike Treadgold is running with it like Jimmy Allin through Guelph's special teams. By most accounts, the player response about Lang's personality and football know-how has been very positive.
The only unanswered question is how Guelph AD Tom Kendall allocates his spending on coaches' compensation, namely whether one or both coordinators get a decent salary. It also worth noting the incumbent defensive coordinator, Billy Brown, was a point man for Guelph's recruiting. Keeping him on might make sense from a continuity standpoint. Lang might work for a nominal salary (verrrrrrry nominal), allowing Guelph to hire two coordinators .
