@FootballScoop: To the same firm that helped UT select him, right? Not strange at all….
You’re right, I stand corrected. For some reason, I had it in my head that he won the Heisman that year. Either way, not really an upgrade for the Vols.
That’s because the other 19 candidates ahead of him said no.
Brian Johnson on his list.
In defense of White and the search firm, this is how they spent the last week...
Brian Johnson is a solid candidate and should take while the taking is good.. But in UCF best interest would be to get an AD and possibly wait a year because they are so close to NSD and the beginning of Spring.
The real national signing day is now in December Nearly 90% of the recruits have already chosen a school and signed
I know, but at this point, all the really solid candidates are off the board, what is better for long term success, picking a quick hire, or taking the time to potentially get the right hire.
And with new transfer rules along with the 2021 freebie, NSD and Dec NSD is meaningless.
I sincerely thought the same thing. I was like why are they only meeting with 8 players? Are those the players that they are trying to convince to stay? Clearly I hadn't had my coffee yet this morning. And I hadn't. #Truth.
They are at an interesting point. The right hire keeps building this up. The wrong hire burns it to the ground. However I think this is a message that they are still a stepping stone program and may want to try and find someone that isn't going to be stolen in 2 years. I think the Malzan hire sounds intriguing. Gimmick offense in that conference where he would have probably the best recruiting, but would he bolt for the first big time school. That being said I'm all for Johnson getting a real shot to start his HC career.
Make my Christmas wish come true. This would almost be worth getting cancer just so it could be my Make a Wish...
Now if Mike Bianchi would take a job with the Knoxville News Sentinel.
Excited for the matchup of the UCF volunteers and the Mississippi State gators..
... make that inner-rimmed coach.
Those ate are the ones who refuse to return the McDonald's lettuce.
Probably the best hire they could've made. Not a great hire by any means, but the best they could do and a likely improvement from Pruitt. Not sure if he'll be able to recruit himself out of the massive hole ut has dug themselves in.
Being an Oklahoma guy I’ve always liked Heupel. Solid dude who came into a school that had ran some version of the Triple option or wishbone the season or 2 before and qb’d a legit air raid attack back when the only other places doing it were Hawaii and Kentucky. He was smart and is highly respected everywhere in OK to this day. I’m more concerned about this hire than most of y’all are.
@PeteThamel: Fun little Heupel fun fact here. He finished second in the 2000 Heisman behind current Tennessee QB coach Chris Weinke. (He'll likely be firing him soon.) And he finished one spot ahead of former Purdue QB Drew Brees. Some fun names on this list.
