Coaching Carousel 2009: Eric Wolford to Youngstown State?

Rumors have been circling about USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford leaving to take the head coaching job at Youngstown State for about a week now. Those rumors are now heating up. YSU was reportedly gunning for Arizona assistant Mark Stoops, but Stoops has just taken a job as defensive coordinator at Florida State. Wolford is apparently YSU's second choice, so we can now commence sweating bullets as to whether this promising young coach will be taking off sometime this week.

I wouldn't blame Wolford too much for making this move. A head coaching job, even at Youngstown State, trumps being a position coach. Moreover, Wolford is a Youngstown native and might not mind heading back home. Finally, Youngstown is capable of good football and could be a stepping stone to bigger and better things for Wolford. On the other hand, if he sticks it out at Carolina and has more success, I suspect he might have better offers for his first head coaching gig a few years down the road. It's his choice.
