Part of why he hired Chaney initially was to appease Jacob Eason and his family. If you recall, Eason was taking a serious look at UF, but once Kirby hired Chaney, Eason re-affirmed his commitment (either that or he spent enough time around Butters and Nuss to figure what they were all about). As a new coach coming in, he did not want the optics of losing a 5* QB recruit to his biggest rival. Ironically, Fromm ends up beating out Eason anyway and he transfers to Washington. Can't help but wonder if Mullen would have modified his offense to fit Eason's skill set or if Eason would have been a decent enough runner. I suspect Feliepe might actually be a better fit, but who really knows?
