 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Mike Holder says he was unaware the disconnect between OSU's football coach and OSU's football players had grown so wide. And I believe the Cowboy athletic director. Holder is hands off. He coached an elite team, OSU golf, for more than three decades and didn't like meddling athletic directors. So Holder wasn't going to be one. "I trust all of our coaches to do their job," Holder said Friday. "I've got a job to do of my own, and really micromanaging any of our coaches doesn't fit into my job description. So I trust them to do their job. And their No.1 responsibility is to nurture their players, develop a relationship with them, make a difference in their life, and as I said earlier, send them out into the world and make a difference for society." Holder admits that philosophy failed OSU, when Gundy's lack of relationships with his players turned into a forest fire that has scarred the Cowboy football brand. But that hands-off philosophy isn't likely to change. "I'm probably not going to change going forward," Holder said, "because at my age, it's pretty hard to teach this old dog new tricks. I'm pretty set in my ways." Oh, the irony. Because with OSU keeping Gundy, via a reduced contract and humbled persona, Holder is counting on an old dog to learn new tricks. - Daily Oklahoman
