    If he can negotiate NYC and Philly, surely this guy can learn his way around Chicago?

    Great. This has the potential for being a very strong staff.

    Re: Francis officially the first assistant

    A friend of mine who is a member of one of the paying sites told me it is on the "private boards" there, and will be announced later this week. Take it for what it is worth. And no, I am not trying to break any rules, or p--- anyone off.

    Great news...one down and two to go...plus a grad assistant.

    I would imagine that the entire staff will be announced at the same time. I would be surprised if that does not happen in the next day or so.

    None of the premium sites are reporting that Francis has been hired. It is just a poster on a premium board. There is nothing close to anything official from Iowa, the newspapers, or any the premium sites.

    Nobody can provide a substantive link to anything! He may be hired but there is nothing anywhere to confirm this post.

    Don't worry about it. Its like paying for a newspaper and discussing it with someone who hasn't read the article. No big deal.

    Most of those guys over there get there panties in a wad over anything,.... thanks for sharing..

    On the Rivals site Blair has started a thread "Looks like first assistant coach on board".
    If I had to guess being that Francis interviewed today he was the one hired.

    Francis has pretty much been in the fold since McCaffery was hired. The next hires will be the ones with intrigue
