Because he knows nd is only place he can coach without riding on coach abrahams back.

Steve Rosati forgot more about football then Byron could imagine. Don't sit here and say the guy isn't qualified. He is a very smart and good man and will make sure these kids go to college and prosper. Who do you think did all the scouting and leg work behind the scenes the past 7 years? Ask Byron himself he will tell you that Steve is one of the more knowledgable coaches around. Now quit beating a dead horse and move on with life it's obvious that ND has.

Wilcox gone so there goes ur qb. Abrahams kid will be gone. I'm sure there will be more.
Without anyone like BA to go out and solicit athletes to come to nd we'll be hard pressed to win. On top of that is the fact that BA was an outstanding football coach. Whoever we get will be a step backwards football coaching wise. If it's rosati, I already know the kids don't like him.
You mean recruit NOT solicit. Nice try.

Question really is "what ND kids will ever make more than 70-k" for all the effort? Some "parenting"!

this coach couldn't get a job anywhere else. Abraham was a legit football talent and learned from D1 coaches. Rosati coached at NYM for about 5 seconds before he was fired and out of coaching for many years. He ran the worse defense in recent memory at ND. There is no way Abraham would credit rosati with scouting or anything else. What a crock

ND can't afford to lose any players period. Can you enlighten us as to what a make or break player is?

If the posters are right and Abraham leaves, that's a starting receiver and corner plus the kicker.

If Wilcox leaves thats your future QB and holder.

If Jones and Gordon from modified and the Muha from varsity is gone who will carry the ball?

And don't be surprised if this list grows to 10 or 12 kids

who cares. its a school. its not a football camp. better question is will football or lack of it make or break nd? i believe that a lot of people wouldn't care one way or another if there was no football and football wasn't a factor in sending their kids there.

I find this post quite literally the funniest thing ive ever seen. Rosati forgot more than coach abraham lol . If rosati is next coach I move my kid. The guy is clueless on defense. I didnt see him at one summer workout or passing league. He comes late to practice everyday. Did you say scouting ? Everyone knows that coach wilcox does the scouting and all the video. Coach abraham gave rosati one job. To run the defense. And he couldn't do it. The defense cost them every game. Coach abraham scores points at will with the same players rosati has on defense. Its embarrassing to lose games 43-42. Im sick of listening to rosati scream and yell at the plAyers because he cant teach them.

Now that's funny! Wilcox is a Pop Warner coach who has been there for 2 years get your facts straight. I have been watching this thread for months now and I find it funny that the same person every morning replies on all the post that have anything to do with ND and using multiple screen names. Can't you find something else to do with your time honey? If any of the administration from ND is watching do you think they don't know who you are? These are children and good men who have been helping the ND students for years. Instead of trying to hurt kids why don't you do something positive with your time!

Sorry funny boy my first post was today. I as well have been reading this non sense and I didnt say wilcox coached I said he scouted cuz it sure wasn't rosati. I could care less if nd administration knows who I am. The validity of my post is correct

The program will survive and there is no way 10-12 kids will leave .. That's ridiculous

The program won't survive. The ability to put a team on the field will. Big difference between program and fielding a team. Lots of schools have a team. By the way, of course some kids will leave. How many is yet to be seen.

You know for sure that there won't be a team to play when the 2014 season begins ?
Perhaps you know more then the board ?

Yes there will be a team on the field. The program won't survive. Abraham had a program. Big difference between 11 kids on the field and a football program

Not that it realty matters, but wilcox has been scouting for Byron for a few years. He was an assistant at Morrisville College in early 2000s, he didn't just coach he ran a Pop Warner organization for a few years. He was the modified ND coach for 2 or 3 years and been a varsity assistant for a couple. A good football coach.. its pretty typical for modified coaches to be the varsity scouts.

By the way, do you know what Rosati did before Byron hired him at ND? He was a Pop Warner coach at Marcy Deerfield where he was asked to not come back. His son quit playing football after PW

The only kids leaving for sure are the kids who have a parent in the coaching staff ... The others will play for the new coach - and probably do well .
