San Jose State's Ron Caragher: 'There are some big shoes to fill'

US PRESSWIRE

Ron Caragher brings with him a track record of keeping successful programs successful after the departure of the previous regime.

Ron Caragher has made a habit of following someone else's success. But he has no problem with that. The new San Jose St. Spartans head coach is replacing Mike MacIntyre. MacIntyre went 10-2 this season before leaving for the Colorado Buffaloes. Caragher previously replaced Jim Harbaugh at the University of San Diego when Harbaugh left for Stanford.

"There are some big shoes to fill, and I love it," Caragher said in the San Jose Mercury News. "I love challenges."

His challenge has always been to continue the previous regime's success. He has proven he can do that with a 44-22 record at San Diego. He is also homebred, attending Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose.

Caragher was hired only a week after MacIntyre left for Colorado. He won't coach the Spartans in the Military Bowl against Bowling Green, but he will be in attendance watching interim head coach Kent Baer try to lead his team to an 11th victory this season.

It will also be Baer's last game with the team as he will leave to join MacIntyre in Colorado.
