Mouse in the house? Bet on it

May 24th, 2010

Spoke with Mouse Davis today, and I’d say he’s the odds-on favorite for the UH receivers job, replacing the retiring Ron Lee.

Actually, I’d say better than odds-on.

“I would say that is a very strong possibility,” he answered when I asked if he will be the new assistant.

Mouse is 77, but he’s the father of the run-and-shoot, and he’s got plenty of energy. He coached UH running backs, linemen and kickers a few years ago under June Jones — whom he coached at Portland State.

He got married a couple of years ago; no problem, he said his wife loves Hawaii.

Although there have been rumors about the return of Mouse, who spoke at the UH coaches’ clinic last month, I didn’t think he was interested until talking with him today.

I have to believe the position is his for the taking, especially since it would be difficult to find other good candidates this close to the start of the season.

    Apparently, Ron Lee is not done with football and is taking a much needed break. Could we possibly see his name somehow resurface among the prep schools? I couldn’t imagine him making a move to the mainland at this point in his life. But then again, here’s Mouse making a move at a ripe young age of 77.

    I am sure we’ll see Ron Lee at SMU.

    That would be a long commute to his night job. But maybe he’ll retire from the showroom.

    Breaking News . . . Saint Louis changed their mind again and has rescinded their offer to Darnell Arceneaux to be their next head football coach. Rumor has it that Ron Lee has been contacted about the position.

    Just thought I’d audition for a job with a tabloid.

    On a serious note Dave . . . what do you think Mouse in the house does to Rolo as OC? Does it change play calling duties? Where do you see Mouse fitting the best? Just receivers?

  6. dreardon:

    Mouse will be a great asset to Rolo and the offense. He’s not overbearing, he’ll advise Rolovich, and make suggestions, not tell him what to do. And Nick Rolovich is a smart and confident guy, he will listen and then make his decisions based on the information available.

    All on the images are fantastic. My beloved would be the Grey Catbird. I think the composition, exposure, head place, blurred background, and color blends are exceptional. I also really like the simplistic beauty with the Robin image.
