MacIntyre’s move up

Good to see Mike MacIntyre move up in the coaching business.

He was always considered a rising star when he coached wide receivers and defensive backs for the first four David Cutcliffe teams.
What he’s done at San Jose State is pretty amazing. Three of the four San Jose coaches before MacIntyre had win percentages of .400 or less, two of them less than .300.

Dick Tomey had a couple of decent teams but was 2-10 the year before MacIntyre replaced him.

MacIntrye was 1-12, 5-7, 10-2 in his three seasons, making a big jump each of the last two seasons.

After leaving Ole Miss to join the Dallas Cowboys for the 2003 season, MacIntyre was reunited with Cutcliffe at Duke for the 2008, 2009 seasons, serving as defensive coordinator. In 2009 the AFCA recognized MacIntyre as the top assistant coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

MacIntyre coached Charles Clark at Ole Miss. Clark was a part of his staff at San Jose and is expected to follow him to Colorado.
