It's tough to recruit quality kids and coaches when you are a bottom feeder. But I agree with you guys that if Mayville could get some salty local kids who would stick around for four five years, build some team chemistry, they would win a few games and feel better about their program.
As far as Derek Schlieve, I heard he was named the interum head coach for now, but.... he is not your man. I would go the route of getting an established, successful, young, motivated high school coach. Not a grad assistant or some out of work coordinator from another bad program.
Look at the route Moorhead State is taking. No successfull college coach or cooridinator wants to go down a step, if they have success they want to move up to greener pastures. Get a kid who is tearing it up at the high school level and wants to move to up to the college ranks, so all he has to think about is football, instead of teaching math and coaching track and jr high basketball etc.
The last time Mayville won a conference title that is what they did, Leclair may have recruited those kids but it took a COACH, (was it Hendrickson that came from Killdeer?) to win with those kids.
I can't believe I am giving advice to Mayville....... On second thought hire Schlieve
