    It's impressive because he ran a top 5 offense. Hell, it would be impressive for us. We hire guys who just got fired for producing the 110th ranked offense.

    Kiffin at USF scares me. This staff already has enough trouble recruiting without Kiffin in the mix.

    Law I'm going to give your pompous ass three dislikes for every dislike you give me because that's how I roll. Get a sense of humor or marry T-Rex.

    Impossible.

    It takes 4 years to even start recruiting at a school, once you develop relationships, then it will take 2-3 more years to turn an offense around.

    Yeah, but he's doomed because he won't have enough time to build relationships.

    That ship has sailed. Take out Bama and the SEC is the MAC with a television station.

    "CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reports Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck won’t be in the mix at Cincinnati and his reps told school officials he wants a Power 5 job."

    Fleck is waiting for the big bucks.

    Most intriguing guy out there. With the right DC, he could be the next ONE.

    It's all the fans fault, any fan expressing anything other then "THE FUTURE IS GREAT, ALL HAIL THE GREAT LEADER" is to blame for poor recruiting, poor offensive output and a team that gets blown out 25 percent of the time.

    Agree. Fleck should hold out one more year. He'll be the most sought after non-Power 5 coach next season, especially if he wins 9-10+ games again.

    The Navy coach would be nuts to leave there for that job. He'd make a little more money, but not much and would struggle vs. the power teams in that conference. He has it made where he is.

    He ran his daddy's already well established top 5 offense for one year, which is to say his dad continued running his top 5 offense.

    Look, he may turn out to be a brilliant, innovative offensive mind, but let's not pretend that he was responsible for the offensive success at Baylor.

    That said, I would swap him for Nuss, but that's not exactly saying much for Briles.

    And yet... I'd take him over Nusschamp in a millisecond. Briles OCs have been pretty successful elsewhere.

    I hope that means he's joining us again.

    Locks is the kind of interim I'd like. Damn sure don't want to see the coCaine as interim when Donkey gets fired.

    Still waiting for you to give us a list (or just ONE name) of who you'd like to see hired if you were the AD. Crickets so far. All I see is you talk sh*t about every possible candidate mentioned, post after post of trash talk about any realistic candidate mentioned. Let's see it. Answer the question, Law!!!! ANSWER THE DAMN QUESTION!!!!!!! :D

    I wouldn't worry about Defense w/ these successful coaches from smaller programs. They will come to the SEC and have a fat budget for assistants and they'll hire a mercenary to come in and run the defense (at least that's what most of them do).

    As far as Law's comments on him, I haven't researched him that thoroughly, but it certainly looks like he's going to be one of the "next hot coaches". The fact that Purdue was his only "real" job offer says a lot though (that he hasn't convinced the higher level P5 schools that he's quite ready).

    I'll say it again, my top choice (and it should be yours too) is Bryan Harsin at Boise. The guy is 40 years old and has the pedigree and coaching record to have a 20 year run at the right school. I'd break the bank if I was Strickland.

    And for those who think McElwain is going to be around much longer than 1 year....you better start paying attention to these threads (about a possible future coach for UF)....because he AIN'T gonna be around more than 1 or 2 years. The writing is on the wall. It's been a complete failure.

    That's exactly it. It was an issue from the get-go. Sexton (the agent) isn't playing that non-sense (the big buyout) when his client has a shot at a P5 school and even more money.

    What a major fail (pun-intended) on Houston's part. They specifically stated they wanted to make a big splash hire. What a joke. I'm sure Applewhite is ready for a head coaching gig somewhere, but this is a let down if you're a Houston fan or donor.

    The SEC is already 2nd, they may actually be closing in on being 3rd.

    Two comments:

    1. I doubt there will be any staff changes because Mac could not get anyone good anyway. Everyone can see a dead man walking
    2. The Big Ten is upping the standard on coaches while the SEC is going backwards due to Saban's dominance. We may be the second best conference soon

    Purdue is a coach killer for sure. So was baylor before briles. I wouldn't be suprised if he turned purdue into a respectable program. I'd like to think we could snag a coach from purdue if we had an opening .

    Some good stuff here from Brohm at his intro press conference. Note: he doesn't mention winning w/ his dog at QB:

    http://coachingsearch.com/article?a=Seven-notable-quotes-from-Jeff-Brohms-introduction-at-Purdue

    7 notable quotes from Jeff Brohm's introduction at Purdue

    Jeff Brohm was introduced as Purdue head coach on Monday and made it clear he wants to bring an exciting offense back to West Lafayette.

    Brohm’s WKU offense averaged more than 44 points per game over the last two years. At a school once known as the Cradle of Quarterbacks and led by Drew Brees, it was a fit for Brohm.

    It also includes an increased commitment from Purdue, who is giving Brohm a 6-year contract worth $20 million. There’s also a new football building under construction. Brohm was confident in that administrative commitment, which has been missing in the past.

    Here were 7 notable quotes from Brohm’s introduction.

    - After talking with Baylor and Cincinnati, why Purdue?

    “Last year, some things happened and I had opportunities. I really wasn’t looking to leave. I’m not one of those types that wants to move around a lot and look for the next best spot. I want to believe in a place, stick with it and feel good about it. Purdue University, I’m familiar with it. I didn’t live too far away growing up. It has a history of developing quarterbacks, playing exciting football, it’s in an outstanding conference. I understand it’s hard its struggled recently, but that’s what they pay me for, to come in here and do my part and help bring this program up.”

    - The quarterback is everything in Brohm’s program.

    “It’s important to me to take care of the quarterback, wherever I’m the coach. If you’re doing that and putting him in position to succeed, your team is going to play better. Everything has to revolve around the quarterback. I kid our assistant coaches, I’m a former quarterback, the most sensitive people in every room are the quarterbacks, so you’ve got to make sure you know how to coach them, and each is different.”

    - What does Brohm look for in a QB?

    “Obviously leadership skills, toughness and the intangibles are important. When you’re recruiting them, you need to get to know them and what their makeup is. Do they really love football? Are they willing to go the extra mile? Are they a competitor? I love it when they play some other sports and they’re used to competing every day. Of course you look at the release, the motion, the athletic ability, all those things, but the intangibles are as important as anything.”

    - The quarterback is No. 1, but the No. 2 thing Brohm wants is linemen on both sides.

    “I believe you have to get the best linemen you can on offense and defense and can't have enough of them. I think some people sign too many skill guys and don’t have enough linemen. No, you have to have the linemen to win at a high level, on both sides. Skill positions you recruit, but there are a lot of those guys out there. If you get guys that want to be great, you can develop them, but that’s the map we’ll have to start off.”

    - Playing for Howard Schnellenberger at Louisville taught Brohm a lesson about coaching.

    “The No. 1 thing I learned from Coach Schnellenberger when I played for him was he was the master at getting his players to believe they could beat anybody when they took the field. He said some outlandish things — ‘We’re on a collision course with the national championship, the only variable is time’ — to the media. But because of it, his players believed we could beat anybody. You have to be able to coach the dynamics of a player’s personality and psyche.”

    - Brohm is reportedly bringing Brian Brohm as co-offensive coordinator, but didn’t divulge anything about the staff.

    “There are a couple key guys we’re going to find a way to get here. I’m going to make sure I talk to everybody here as well, not rush into anything too soon. There’s a lot of great coaches across the country. There are certain people I’m comfortable with.”

    - Brohm’s first game as Purdue coach will be against Louisville in Indianapolis, and Brohm knows it.

    “I did notice that. I was hoping the quarterback (Lamar Jackson) would come out early for them, but I don’t know if he can yet. That will be exciting. Louisville, I obviously know a lot about. They do a great job, have developed a tremendous program. That will be a great test for us.”

    I think he's sick of the public humiliation on the sideline by Saban. Nobody appreciates being berated on national TV. No matter how good the pay is.

    With Kiffin, it should be how much Houston is willing to pay to get rid of him in a few years.
