Akron HC job

Tom Arth of Chatt is supposed to be a candidate. https://www.timesfreepress.com/news/spo ... ng/484389/

I wonder if Conklin is also a candidate although after a quick 'google' I did not see that he is a candidate.

Not sure why Arthbwould be a candidate. I haven’t been overly impressed with what he has done at Chatt!

Well Akron hasn’t exactly had a rich and storied football history brimming with winning tradition and great coaches. But they do have a unique nickname, the Zips, and a cool mascot, Zippy the Kangaroo! https://www.google.com/search?q=akron+z ... 0h2ak6EljM:

The larger question might be why Chatty is having the turnover problems with their athletic programs.

Apparently Arth is somewhat local and well known in the Akron area. It still seems strange to hire someone with limited success.

On the surface, Arth to Akron seems odd, but MAC schools take chances on up and comers. It seemed odd for Ball State to hire Pete Lembo from Elon, too.

What I am interested are the reports that Klieman from NDSU is talking to Kansas State.
