San Jose State head coach search: USD's Ron Caragher interviews for job

US PRESSWIRE

San Jose State is looking for their new head coach after Mike MacIntyre left to take the top job at Colorado.

The San Jose St. Spartans had their best season in 2012 in a long time, and with that success head coach Mike MacIntyre took the head coaching job with Colorado. The Spartans are looking for a new head coach, and so far one candidate has interviewed for the job.

First up is San Diego's Ron Caragher who has already confirmed that he has interviewed for the job:

"They had questions, and I had questions," Caragher told the newspaper. "Right now it's really at the exploratory point. But it was something I felt I had to check out. They said they plan on interviewing other people, so I won't know anything more until early next week."

Caragher has done a great job taking over for Jim Harbaugh six years ago when he left to take the head coaching job at Stanford. In that six years, Caragher has led San Diego to a 36-19 record, and this season they went 8-3.

Prior being the head coach at San Diego, Caragher spent four seasons at Kentucky as their assistant head coach and running back coach. He also spent nine seasons with UCLA where he started as a graduate assistant, punting coach and coached the wide receivers.

The level of play at San Diego is FCS non-scholarship football, so it is a step below the more traditional FCS level which does hand out scholarships. The jump would be a huge jump, but there is precedent since Harbaugh was able to turn around Stanford just a few short years after leaving San Diego.
