Great coordinator, mediocre head coach. He was too inconsistent and ultimately that's what got him canned. With Mullen you got the highest of highs and the lowest of lows and his W-L ratio was simply too low.

I think he's done as a coach, including as an OC.

His next job: Broadcast and radio talking head. He won enough to have credibility and can talk all day long. He's like a college professor of college football. He reminds me in this respect of Rick Neuhesiel. He's a chubbier version of Rick but with some potentially great comments on a game. I think he's a broadcaster next. I think it will be in a couple of years. He'll take a year off, get tanned and skinny, end up at a network.

Fox? ESPN? SEC Network?

On standby when Beth Mowins calls in with PMS.

The only time I visit this thread. But while I'm here this once I unequivable and without question do not give a rat's derier what's next for the one who grins at every coach after he gets rolled by them....

Wow you have a much higher regard for Cousin Eddie than I do. Mediocre at best to below average OC. Horrendous HC. His problems were caused by his ego, no attention to detail and no management skills. Neuheisel can at least sound football knowledgeable at times. Cousin Eddie shows no ability to understand the intracacies of the game one iota. Not being able to stop the same run play by an opponent over 50 times 2 consecutive games is pretty decent evidence that his celing is as a bad checkers player and not a chess player.

After being good for many years, Navy has struggled for about 3 years now. Maybe Neopolitan Ice Cream or whatever the coach's name is will move on. I am sure Navy would love Paul Johnson back, but if not Johnson, Cousin Eddie and his QB run heavy scheme would fit right in.

Done as a HC at any good school. Never liked him when he was OC here. Very predictable play calling with Leak and Tebow. It wasn’t until he found out we could throw to a tight end (CI) in the SEC and NC title games that we truly opened up. As to announcing, he comes across as an arrogant prick most of the time..maybe he can do a show with Keith Olbermann but bedsides that I don’t see a future in broadcasting. Best he can hope for is doing kids birthday parties in his Darth Vader costume if you ask me..
