What kind of Coach is Kevin Higgins? Do you think he can be successful at The Citadel? Can he recruit? LOVE the new format and look forward to the season. GO DOGS!

GO DOGS!"To Citadel fans, you have got a great coach - one who had a transformative effect on the Lehigh program. Here's hoping that he can do the same for the Citadel as well."

I'll concur. The Citadel got themselves a great coach. If you support him (and I have no doubt that you will) he will be successful. If he can't win, well, I don't know who could at El Cid.

Higgins seemed to be masterful at halftime adjustments and getting the most out of the players he had. At Lehigh he was not shy about changing up the offence to catch the defence offguard (like the Vegas he pulled out on WIU).

Does this all mean we have to start worrying about the Citadel now. We have enough to worry about in the SoCon.
Then again not worrying about The Citadel last season got us beat. We were still drinking from "The Jug." :cool:

Higgins should be a godsend. He could have stayed at Lehigh for life, and, in fact, said that only the unique challenge of going to the NFL was something he could not pass up. He really turned around the program by recognizing that championships are won with defense and began putting some of our best athletes on 'D'. Previously, Lehigh was pass happy and put up a lot of points, but also gave up a lot. He kept the pro-style offense, however, and the points remained and the defense became a top one. He's a motivator and demands that his players be students and good citizens. He's a top notch person. If he can't win at the Citadel, no one can. You should give him some time, though, he got a late start this year and will need help recruiting in the South where is in 'foreign' territory. He'll need a lot of staff support for that.

As Lehigh's archrival I can tell you the Leopards HATED Higgins (cause he beat us regularly). Just glad Lehigh didn't get him back. You guys are getting a good one. Potentially a great one. Good riddance Kevin Higgins!
