    Mullen is going to make us great again and return to the top. Just you wait. He is already amassing a top notch staff. Go Gators!!

      My recollection was Stoops seriously considered the deal, at least the first time. Shanahan really didn't.

      Foley's problem is he thought he could hire Billy Donovan every time, an up and coming energetic diamond in the rough. Looks like he may have done it twice in basketball but whiffed 3 times in football.

          Considering we're coming from having a S&C coach that looked like a strand of spaghetti, a worm needing the hook and Nuss anguishing in 3rd and long Hell... pretty confident Mullen will cobble up something better than that :cool:

            Not sure what monkey claimed we ever had a top notch staff under McElwain, but I sincerely hope they didn’t drive afterward. I always felt that JM himself was decent. But he surrounded himself with absolute garbage, from Nuss to Nord to Kent to Callahan, on and on. Just terrible. We can debate his budget allowance, but those guys weren’t even good by their clearance price standards.

            I’ll say this, the moment Gonzalez joined, our staff became better than anything recently. He was the primary recruiter forguys like Harvin, Haden, Carl Moore(big catch regardless of his career here), etc. Not a huge fan of Grantham(would rather him grab Diaz from um), but if nothing else, we now have 4 assistants from P5 teams, 3 SEC. So they’ve at least been engaged with prospects we’re also recruiting and areas we must succeed in. The days of raiding Boca for position coaches are over. If you give Mullen no other credit, he definitely understands that won’t work.

            Keep in mind one of the articles from Colorado that surfaced during JM’s firing about him leaving behind an entire support cast that had helped him turn CSU around. Then look at the constant staff turnover(people leaving) in his brief stint here. People generally didn’t like him and felt unappreciated. In contrast, DM has 3 guys looking to follow him here, several who have a long history with him. They obviously like working for/with him so I feel like we’ll have a lot more continuity under Mullen, which we desperately need.

              I will say that the fact Mullins isn't bringing any OCs that just got fired from their last two jobs is a big improvement. Hevesy and Bill G are solid, no doubt.

              That being said there were literally saying McElstain and Nusschuml were so great it was like cheating having those two together and that Callahan was the best recruiter in the state and a likely future HC.

                That isnt an incredibly high salary. He was probably getting that matched at Cowbell if he wanted to stay.

                Herman got hired for 5.3m last year and yet there are many more big schools hunting for a HBC this year, big wage pressures.

                    One thing I don’t understand is I thought Stricklin said in the presser after uga that he was hoping to get away from the huge buyouts. Then We announce that Mullen has a $12M buyout. So it’s possible in 3 years when we fire Mullen we’ll pay him $12M, still be paying Butters and be forced to hire Nord as out HC for $250k per year because that’s all we can afford.

                        According to highly connected GatorChatter sources, it’s a done deal. Announcement after the SECCG or after New Years Bowls or after the National Chanpionship game, at the latest. But seriously, done deal.

                          no, but I don't like the $12 million buyout. I'd be fine with the hire if we could of had a buyout that went down like $4 million each year.

                          At some point you should find another team.

                            People still want Chip Kelly after he played Florida like a fiddle? He was never interested in coming here and I have serious doubts in the "Florida never offered me" BS.
