Rhett Lashlee for new coach at gt? what do you think?
In time, I think the hill liking CPJ will allow him to recruit more of the borderline academically challenged SA's.CPJ is not getting fired. The hill loves his grad rate and lack of off field problems. We'd have to actually be bad at football to out weigh those two HUGE pluses. As it turns out, we're just mediocre.
Would love to see what he can do without a top 5-caliber WR, a seasoned vet at QB and a stable of other high-caliber skill position players which were primarily recruited by someone else. I'm guessing not much honestly.Chad Morris would be my pick.. If a coaching change happened..
Don't know if Chad Morris or whoever is the answer. But I do believe that Vad is in the wrong system. JT may be as well. In order to get the full potential of their talent. One issue I would see though is our offensive line is a problem no matter what system/scheme we run.My thoughts are that we would have a better shot at attracting that talent with Chad's offense. It would also leverage a lot of talent we already have with the speed of the abacks and the tall WR. We would just line our abacks up at WR spots.
Exactly, we need to know how involved this guy is in actual play-calling/designing. Even if he's 100% invested in it, hiring someone like him would still be a gamble since there are so many other aspects of head coaching that a first time coach must either learn on the job or delegate to capable assistants. I'd prefer someone with head coaching experience for several years with several assistants and a few player cycles to make sure his success wasn't player or assistant driven. Think Chuck Amato without Phillip Rivers for the former or Dan Hawkins without Chris Petersen for the latter. In a sport with so many variables like football I'd like to find out as much as possible how much past success/failure can be attributed to a coaching candidate and feel you can do this more accurately with former coaches whose tenure include some turnover of staff and players. The only downsize of this is that such proven candidates don't come cheap.These coordinators under "guru" head coaches always concern me. Like, is he really doing anything to contribute to the offensive success at Auburn? Or is it all Malzahn? I'm not saying I'd be against it, but I'd like to more about what he's actually doing.
