    Thoughts on Potential Lehigh HC?

    On the various forums and spots a number of names keep getting mentioned and supposedly with some reason due to 'reliable sources'. One name that seems to be getting a lot of interest is Tim Cramsey, who has had a number of positions with various FCS powers over the years, including Montana State and SHSU. He hails from Allentown, PA, just five miles from Goodman Stadium, where he was QB for the PA State Champ Allentown Central Catholic a good many years ago, so there may be family connections that could impact. What I am looking for is for those on this Board who have had experience with or seen his work in the past to provide any insight as to guy's abilities, both as a communicator, recruiter, organizer, and coach.

    Pretty sure Cramsey's name was floated (and he may even have looked into it, but backed out) for the Holy Cross job last year.

    I can’t comment on Cramsey’s performance, but his resume (for this opening) is superior. This is the credential of a coach who can build Lehigh back up to a regular “top 15” FCS level performer despite the Patriot League’s self-imposed detriments to getting there.

    My prediction is Lehigh will go with Checcini. Seems loyalty and patience are in great supply on South Mountain. This pick will easily get 7-8 years in position no matter what the won/loss record.

    I have it on good authority that Cramsey was very interested in the Lafayette job two years ago. He was not even invited to interview in person, thanks again Bruce. I think he is much happier with his current position than the one he had 2 years ago, but I think Cramsey will be very interested.

    Chick, Trish, Folmar and Cramsey would all be solid hires. I would take any of those guys as well..

    I can provide more info on Cramsey when I get home. Cramsey was hired at Montana State when I was still in Bozeman. I got a little insight from Rob Ash because he knew my ties to Eastern PA and Patriot League football. Ash and Tavani were friends dating back to Ash's time at Juniata.

    Given that he's never been a head coach...except at schools where he became the all-time wins leader...I think he might be a good fit for just about anyone.

    Does he want to coach again?

    I wonder if he's interested in returning to Drake.
