    @ChrisDoering: Lots of talk about Frost, Norvell and Mullen as UF's next coach but I'm intrigued about the possibility of Chad Morris taking over.

    This guy oozes elite. The next elite coach imho. If we don't get him someone else will and they will be celebrating the way we should be. I'm nervous that our AD and crew just don't care about the long haul and finding the most obvious fit

      They still win without Chizik. They don't win without Malzahn.

        Amazing to think SMU is in the AAC. That was once an elite program.

        I want Kelly or Frost. We know Kelly is a legit elite coach; and I think of all the unproven ones, Frost is the most likely one to be an elite coach. His coaching pedigree is unreal, and he is coming into his own as a head coach right now

          I think every hire is risky. There is no guaranteed success head coach. Just like recruits, some 5* are busts and some 3* turn out great. Obviously, we increase the odds of success with a 5* hire. Whoever is hired, I will get behind the new coach, support him to the fullest (unless/until there are red flags indicating problems), and be happy. Go Gators!!! sohappy.gif

              Probably will be him. I don’t think it matters at this point. I think he’ll be gone, too, when all is said and done. If they do keep him, I’d guess it would be short term (maybe 12-15 months at most) to keep some sense of continuity for the recruits while the new HC gets his legs under him.

              It was elite for one reason only since 1970 and they made no secret about it!

                I don't attribute it all to cheating.

                Only 97%. :lol:

                    It worked for the Sooners before, and USC, and Miami, and is currently working swell for Bama.
