Re: Josh Gattis

So just out of curiosity, what makes this guy so great? He has one year of OC exp. and that is as a Co. He took over play calling for a team so loaded with talent, that any play that he called was going to work. I mean he definitely would come with some risk. It would be a big step up for him, but ...

Re: Two Gillin Gripes

I'm as eager as anyone to know who our next head coach is going to be, but I think we all need to think about how important of a process this is. And it sounds like Ledford was Doug's guy until Ledford opted for a job at Louisville instead. I still really, really can't imagine Ledford would rather b...

Gattis wouldn’t stay long.
Again: this. is. the. last. thing. you. take. into. consideration.

You think he wouldn't stay long? Good. That means he would be winning while he's here.

He wins while he's here, gets a bigger job, and the gig becomes even more desirable.

Re: Ledford

I honestly think it is going to be Horton ... Would be a horrendous hire. Honestly, all the remaining candidates we know of are pretty underwhelming. Ivey, Horton, Woody... none of those really excite me. I really hope there's something to the Josh Gattis rumors. And to clarify, Woody wouldn't be a...

Re: Stephon Brown dismissed

Odd that he honored his commitment to App when he started getting P5 offers, then turn around and waste an opportunity. I hope we don't have to line up against him in the future, but hope he finds a solid landing spot and wish him well. lol he never got a p5 offer He never got a P5 offer because he...

Re: Josh Gattis

Potential "loyalty" is the very last factor we should take into consideration with hire. That's how you hire a coach with a mediocre resume that runs the program into the ground. You hire the best candidate you have, regardless of age or ties to the school. Good G5 programs know replacing coaches is...

Re: Josh Gattis

Would be an absolute homerun hire. I'm sure he's in for a promotion under Saban with Locksley leaving, and hell Locksley himself is already working to get him to join at Maryland. Can't imagine he'd take this gig when he could be making more money elsewhere. But since Brown is out the window, this i...

I for one am excited to see that now perhaps the delayed hb dive may not make up 65% of the playbook
My God that second half playcalling last week was beyond atrocious

Why does he have to steal brown? Couldn’t he go get woody from ga tech?
I mean if Brown doesn’t get offered by Satt he’s going to Ole Miss. either Brown is our HC next year or he’s not on the staff.

Re: Mike Houston new Head Coach at Charlotte

13-10 in the OVC with the most recent season ending with a losing record doesn't strike me as FBS head coach material at all, even though he has experience with dumpster fires. They should have just struck with Lambert if this is their man. To think they had a proven winner with Mike Houston. WOW. ...

Re: Mike Houston new Head Coach at Charlotte

Wait, you guys seriously think this was a good hire? I think it's a high risk high reward hire. But I think it's worth the risk for Charlotte, they can win 6 games in the next 3 years and then start over using the same "sleeping giant" label they have forever. I wouldn't have liked it for us, but I...

Mark Ivey may be our Interim Coach
Based on his current title, I would assume he would be such.
That would be dumb. Brown would be gone before we can even interview him

Random name: Mike Yurcich, Oklahoma State OC. He has no familiarity with the state or the school, but he turns out some amazing offenses every year. Still only 43. He makes $800k year apparently, so we could compete. we aren't paying satterfield that in base salary. if he is making that much there,...

True,but if you were the next in line for the offer and the guy in front of you didn't want it, would that not make you think twice about it yourself? I get your point about it being a P5 but you are giving up job security for a potential short term gig. The avg HC in D1 is 3.8 years. I don't care ...
