Players React To DeBoer's Resignation

February 5, 2010, 6:00 PM by Don Jorgensen

Players React To DeBoer's Resignation
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Kalen DeBoer's resignation as USF's head football coach is certainly big news on campus. While it caught a lot of people off guard, including players, it wasn't totally unexpected.

He recruited them, he coached them and he won three national titles with them. Now Kalen DeBoer is saying good-bye to them. 

"I was a little surprised, but it's really an opportunity he can't really pass up.  So at the same time, I'm really happy for him," running back Ryan Lowmiller said. 

"He's going to a higher level program to coach and it's time for him to move and he feels it's right, it's a good thing," offensive tackle Kyle Staudt said. 

"I'm a little shocked, but I knew it was going to happen sometime soon because he's a great coach and he went 67 and 3.  It was only a matter of time before he moved up, and Southern Illinois gave him a a great opportunity he couldn't pass up," linebacker Nathan Everett said. 

As far as what's going to happen to the football program at USF, players we talked with aren't worried.

They say the current coaching staff and players all learned from DeBoer and think USF's winning tradition will continue. 

"You know the guys that worked under DeBoer, even Morrell, they've been here long enough they know the scheme.  It's all about a program, it's a winning program and I think those guys will step up and be leaders for the athletes coming in," linebacker Kyle Cummings said. 

"I know there was 20 juniors on the team last year and they all contributed a lot and I think they still have a lot of coaches here, and they know the defense as well as coach Morrell does.  Definitely not worried about them.  I think they'll step up reload and gun for a national championship again," Everett said.
