Recall the following IL St 6'7" monster, who transferred to Oregon for his final yr. last season? If Muller had been a GOOD coach, this thought would've never crossed his mind:

Wow, where to start.
There's a long story around MM's transfer to Oregon from ISU that I won't get into here but it had nothing to do with Muller being a GOOD coach or not. A group of people outside of the program got into his ear. I would argue that it didn't turn out very well for him. He had a good year, but definitely did not raise his draft stock....and didn't get to play in the NCAAs either.
I seem to recall that ISU was 28-7 and 17-1 in the Valley just 2 years ago. Was a very balanced team that shared the ball very well. I have definitely seen Dan mature as a coach over the years to the point where he is a fairly decent game coach. Does he take chances on players from time-to-time, he certainly does. All good coaches usually do. He has also had 3 coaches from his staff get head coaching spots recently and a few others move on to larger programs, so I'm guessing his peers sure don't see him as a BAD coach.
