What Perry is doing at Princeton is very original and attention-getting. I'm guessing that he will stay in Tigertown until he leaves for a big-time program. In other words, I think he will be attractive to FBS programs. No need to settle for an Ivy career track.

In particular, he probably thinks that there is no harm in staying as long as he has a guy like Epperly or Lovett around to experiment with. Keep coming up with innovative stuff until he gets the phone call he really wants.

gentlemen; many have suggested mr reno do the honorable act of resigning voluntarily which from my standpoint will never happen as mr reno waits for the outcome of the tiger and cantab contests. the outcome may or not determine how mr beckett views who will be the commander of the blue ship next season.

Perry would be an intriguing choice but he just might hold out for a prime upgrade.

Rolling the dice, off the cuff, spinning the wheel I would bring in Eric Mangini for a conversation. He is out of work and relatively close to the area. He has zero collegiate coaching experience but a lifetime of NFL challenges. Plus, is a defensive specialist.

Eric Mangini is out of work for a reason. That would be a horrible move.

Yale cannot afford a mistake on the next hire, assuming Reno is gone.

Head coaching experience is a must have, no more position coaches.

BTW, Reno's first year was a precursor to all of this, no one wanted to admit it. He turned a good returning team into a 2-8 mess after he ran off Whitelaw and anointed Williams. If you recall Williams was benched after 5-6 games never to be heard from at QB again.

People who think Perry is waiting for big time FBS are wrong. He was a finalist for the Williams Head Coach job last year. I would be more than interested in Yale job. Not saying he's the right guy, but he definitely would want it.

Perry is very accomplished, but I'm more interested in these coaches:
Joel Lamb
Sammy Mccorkle
Ryan Day
Jeff Davaney

I would make a call to Navy's Offensive Coordinator Ivin Jasper. What they do there is very impressive and that offense can be tailor made for the type of players the Ivy League gets.

I would also call Wake Forest's offensive coordinator Warren Ruggiero.

I wouldn't make prior head coaching experience a requirement.

I would absolutely require head coaching experience.
The last two hires had none, and look how those turned out.
No more on the job training. Experience required.

To Go Green: I don't see where anyone was claiming Reno was the first choice. Fact is, he was the fourth choice.

"Yale cannot afford to make a mistake on the next hire."

Sure sounds like people think that Reno was the first choice, rather than the first choice willing to accept the cap on compensation imposed by Levin.

If Yale goes cheap again, they just have to hope to catch lightning in a bottle--and that's very tough to do.

Not on my planet. Just sounds like the eventual choice was a poor one. You may not realize this, but lots of second and third choices work out well.

Given the constraints that Yale was under at the time, how did Yale make a "mistake" with Reno?

To claim that Yale made a mistake with Reno implies that there were some better choices out there.

Get some successful D3 or D2 head coach. Gotta be someone hungry enough to move up to FCS level. Yale's a pretty cushy job, only 10 games a year, smart kids to work with, and relatively easy recruiting because of the brand name.

If we do get some assistant, get one from a Power 5 school where they know how to run a modern football team.

If Tom Williams had not padded his resume.

Would he have stayed? He was 16-14 in his 3 years and probably would have gotten 2 more, 4th and 22 not withstanding.

gentlemen; mr siedlecki in his last three years before being unceremoniously shown the door was 23 wins 7 losses overall and 16 wins and 5 losses in the ancient eight. why mr beckett in his infinite wisdom would let the current situation to remain for another season is very perplexing at best.

Old blue is right. My guess is with 20/20 hindsight Beckett may be regretting his decision on Siedlecki - or to put it another way - what other Ivy AD would fire a coach who had records of 8-2, 9-1, 6-4 in his last 3 seasons. Thought they only did to that to HC's in the Power 5 conferences.

Old Blue and Remember It Well have it just right. To me, this was the sad side effect from an overly developed obsession with beating a rival. We dismissed a perfectly fine head coach because of recent losses to one school. But this is obsessing over one tree when any meaningful evaluation of any head coach must consider the entire forest.

There's too much noise in any given two or three games against any opponent, especially against a strong program, when a mistake is likely to be costly. Yale must start focussing on whether a coach has the ship pointed in the right direction, not whether it happens to dodge one particular iceberg a year.

The exaggerated obsession with Harvard also has other negative side effects. You think Tom Williams tries the fake punt on 4th-and-22 against Dartmouth? No way. That was solely and entirely a result of *HIS* obsession with stamping his personal mark on the history of the rivalry.

Two "shared" titles in 12 years

Blew a 21-3 halftime lead against H in 2005.

Blew a big halftime lead to Princeton in 2006 in front of 40k at the Bowl.

Routed by Harvard with an undefeated team in 2007.

Mediocre records from 2001-2005. Terrible game day coach (as was Cozza to be fair)

It's a sad commentary on the state of the Yale football program when mediocrity looks good.

Not easy to get beyond mediocre in the Ivys.
Surace 31-37 since 2010; Archer 11-33 since 2013; Teevens 82-90 since 2005; Estes 113-80 since 1998 (6-4 2013, 5-5 2014 and 2015, 3-5 2016) Bagnoli 4-14 since 2015 (some great years at Penn but last three years there 12-18). I would argue that Siedlecki is probably comparable to Estes - who still has his job perhaps because has not had to contend with the "The Game"
rivalry.

My last contact with Tom Beckett showed him still strongly in Reno's corner. Admittedly that contact was over a month ago. He will probably buy into the usual lament of injuries; young players, etc. that Reno probably puts up. IF he decides to cut Reno loose, I'm sure there will be a "goodbye" bonus, probably funded by the deep pockets of the Footoball Y Association some posters here suggest that the seniors specifically have "quit" on Reno as coach, and if so, I consider that shameful. Seniors are supposed to lead the team out of pride, and their supposed advanced know how because of that seniority. Maybe they resent his methods because he is using freshmen and other younguns. Hopefully those who espouse this theory of dislike are speculating
as I would hate to think Yale men would be so petulant. Remember guys -- "for God, for country and for Yale."

Chris Wilkerson: Great resume, Ivy experience, I'll pay for the phone call. There are many outstanding candidates that would jump at the opportunity to coach at Yale. Not a difficult school to recruit to (what student-athlete is not taking the call from a Yale coach), great facilities and cache. Additionally, I think the challenge of building a program from scratch, and we are at scratch, is very appealing to many coaches. Bring in the right guy and pay him. It'll be well worth it.

This used to be my favorite weekend, talk to some of the old players and hear the old story's. Ever since that encounter with Steve Conn and Reno. You took the love I had for Yale .? Replaced itt with hate.!! I hope Yale will fail in every aspect and may it wither till its very existence is gone.? Steve Conn your a toad. Tony Reno your a dumb ass. Tom Beckett your a forked tongue lizard.? 1st time I ever felt like this , thank you for releasing me of The Yale Football curse.!! Yale Football was once a great and powerful , now it is but a shadow of in the memories of the old. Sincerely Jon Harris

But base to with respecting the people and the surrounding Comminuty.? That these pieces of DUNG don't grasp.? Reno thinks he's big time,arrogant SOB with no class. When I was told that we were divulging plays to opponent's.i started laughing. I asked him do you read the blog.? Steve Conn Why no? Well what's the problem. Well Coach Reno feels anvil paranoid. He is a Horse ass .So now its the reason he is losing . in all honesty your a lousy person a horrible Coach.!!! If he stays 2000 will be the norm for attendance.

I rarely do this online Jon but I LOL'd!

I got that impression about Coach Reno when he was hired. At the time others agreed with me but Yale fans held out hope. One maneuver I give him credit for is bringing in Varga. That was a coup. I can't recall the sequence of events but i do recall Varga decided to stay in Canada, played a year and then transferred to Yale. If that was Reno's influence then he deserves a pat on the back since Varga won a bunch of games for them.

Also, every now and again when i give the team up for dead, they seem to bounce back, if only temporarily show something. If the head coach is responsible for that then I give him passing credit for that too. Otherwise, he is and always has been over his head and needs to move on.

Was working with recruit in class 2014. Reno wanted and landed QB from Connecticut. Kid looked good, fast, strong, only downside was height. Followed up with assistant coach recruiter that flew to our school to see practice earlier in spring. He said Reno believed high school QB's were usually best athletes, so he was bring them in with the intent of moving to other position. Our guy was big more pocket guy not what he was targeting for second position. Made sense at time and rejection is part of recruiting. He brought in 7 or 8 QB's that year? Most school bring one or two and target need. I think QB problem is plan A just didn't work out and maybe no plan B.

That is BS. It is NOT true that the players do not like Reno. Trust a parent who knows. A few bitter people trying to undermine him and the team, and influence others, good luck. Actions speak louder than words. We will see what the future brings. No need to say more. Just wait.
