Weber State University's next football coach must be committed to the Wildcats football program. That may sound like a "duh" requirement, but one reason the Wildcats are 4-19 the past two seasons is because the university was duped by a high-profile "star" coach, John L. Smith, who promised the Ogden university his commitment and then bailed once he discovered a one-year deal with the University of Arkansas.Weber State University desperately needs a quality coach, perhaps an assistant in the higher-tier Football Bowl Subdivision, who will commit to at least three or four years of thinking only about Weber State University. The university needs a head coach who is able to recruit high-quality athletes to come to Ogden and play football. Once the talent is here, the coach must make sure that the team has more wins than losses. These are qualities that retired head coach Ron McBride possessed to some degree several years ago during his tenure here. The Wildcats managed to make it to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs during the McBride era.
