The Beavers Hire Rhode as the New Coach | Corvallis Soccer Blog [cached]
Linus Rhode has been named the new head coach for the Oregon State University women's program. Linus found out last Friday and the athletic department released an announcement on the same day. Linus succeeds Steve Fennah who resigned somewhat unexpectedly last month.
Linus has been an assistant coach at OSU for eight season.
The new assignment comes at a perfect for time for Linus who was addressing some potential work visa complications as a Canadian citizen. The promotion to a head coaching position will allow Rhode to continue to work in the United States. Linus lives in Corvallis with his wife Magdalena who is an assistant coach with the OSU swim team and daughter, Nina. Rhode faces a challenging task of competing in the PAC-10 and the powerhouse programs in California. It is an endeavor that has eluded the Beavers for most of the last decade. OSU has not reached the women's NCAA tournament since 1994. The test ahead is no secret to Linus though. He has had a front row seat to the disappointing show the program has been putting on. At the very least, Linus knows what he is getting into.
His experience in Oregon should put him in a good position for recruiting Northwest talent. Linus is charismatic which doesn't hurt bring good players to the program either. Great players don't always make good coaches but it can't hurt that Linus has played at an elite level shared by few coaches in the entire country. If he can impart some of his creativity and willingness to be responsible for the outcome of a game, it will be very positive for the program.
I should point out that I have never coached college soccer nor do I have any kind of coaching license. With that out of the way, I am going to offer some unsolicited coaching advice to Linus from the comfort of my padded chair.
Let the girls play with the freedom and confidence to do things that are unexpected and amazing (just like you Linus).
What changes or new priorities would you like to see from Linus and the OSU women's soccer team?
Linus pulled some old strings and hired former player Morgan Crabtree.

OSU assistant coach and obvious head coach prospect Linus Rhode represented Canada a total of fifteen times between '94 and '96. He has appeared against France, Guinea Bissau, USA, Korea, Mexico, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Australia. Linus netted three international goals, played against EPL standout Mark Viduka and even has a win against Team USA.
Installing Linus Rhode as head coach would buy De Carolis some time until then.
I'd like to see Linus get a chance.
It makes sense to me to install Linus until at least the end of the fall. Its a simple solution. OSU can try Linus out in the position. In case Linus doesn't work out there would be more candidates after the fall season.

It's after the fall season now and Linus should be gone. an absolutely horrible season. Good talent wasted.
Coach Rhode needs to go. What makes the situation even worse is that Coach Rhode is a former player. He must know how horrible it is to play such a boring style of soccer and at the sametime not even have his players in the right position or on the field. You know the girls he is coaching have to be thinking the same thing. I feel bad for them. JUST RESIGN COACH RHODE!!!

Thanks to Mike and Logan for commenting. I agree with some of your points regarding the OSU women but I'm not ready to call for Rhode to resign yet.

"We are very excited about having eight of our games on the Pac-12 Network," said OSU women's soccer head coach Linus Rhode.
"For recruiting it's been huge," Rhode said.
"I can say [that] I can already see the respect factor [for the Pac-12] jumping up 1,000 times just out on the recruiting trail this summer from other conferences," Rhode said.
