Mike Gundy talks about keeping Holgorsen, compliments his assistants: "I'm pretty comfortable that we'll be able to keep Dana here," Gundy said. "I don't think there's any guarantees. I think anybody that says there are any guarantees is probably guiding you in the wrong direction in this profession. It's changed dramatically over the last three or four or five years, the way things are operated, because of money.
"There's so much money thrown around at these assistant coaches that you just can't guarantee anything, but we would like to try to keep our guys in place for the continuity and it's just the right thing to do."
"Without sounding egotistical or trying to boast, ever since we started winning games around here, people started coming in and trying to hire our coaches. I don't know any other way to put it. That's a good thing because when we were winning four games and the first year we won six, nobody showed up here looking for our coaches."
Mark Dantonio talks about Don Treadwell, compliments his assistants: "He's been a great asset, as well as our other coaches and they're ready for head coaching jobs. If someone has the opportunity to hire Don Treadwell or any of our other assistants, they should take advantage of that. We have an outstanding coaching staff.”
"One of the main reasons we're 11-1 is because of the job our coaching staff has done."
Todd Graham doesn't have other options, so he is committed to Tulsa : “Yes, there are people that have interest and they are going to have interest in our assistants. They have had interest in myself. But I can tell you this. I am committed to being here and my assistants are committed to being here. At the end of the day, they have to do what’s best for their families.”
“Right now, we have a great synergy and family atmosphere. There’s much more to this business other than just money. There is a great commitment that they have now. We’re going to do everything we can to keep the staff here.”
Urban on Addazio’s return to the staff: "I am expecting that to happen. I'll have further updates as we get closer to the bowl game. Everybody's out recruiting and doing their business.”
"At this time, I can't make any statements because there's so much going on with the profession right now."
