    We all saw what happened when he was given control over roster decisions during his last season at Philly. Good luck with that, Chip.

      If they did, then UF will in the long run benefit by Kelly telling them to take a hike. This is one of the key problems of a Foley UAA was usurping decisions that belonged to coaches. Foley wasn't nor is Striklin a coach. UF rightfully takes a lot of decision away from coaches and puts them in admissions and student affairs. UF should NEVER tell a coach who they must hire.

        Somebody has to show me proof that we told him he had to keep some of the current staff.

            Don't expect there to ever by proof, it's believed because it makes it UF's fault instead of Chip not wanting to be the UF coach.

              I take it to mean he chooses his own coaching staff. Seems reasonable to me.

              Whehhhhhh.......

              Youre right, I bet Fooley would be rushing to pay that guy 9 mil to land that 90th ranked offense.

                Frost will create a leading program at UF, if we get him. Logic says if we miss on him it will be because he stays at UCF due to loyalty and a beginning job unfinished. Stricklin should make an offer that makes it "young family abuse" for Frost to turn down.

                Ain't it time for us to start picking out Frost's OC, DC, QB-coach, RB-coach etc. etc. One you guys needs to get to Frost to tell him to make Foley's Gainesville departure a deal-cincher.

                Benefit of the doubt #117?

                Tell me you think Jeremy Foley did a good job? Are you one of those?

                Why. So you can come up with another pitiful excuse. The burden is on us to show we did not fvvvk things up. We are the one that stupidly flew up the president. Did UCLA fly up its president? Yet they have Chip. So either Strick gets a good coach and he is complete success, or he gets another Chump and is a complete failure. Now Strick even has less leverage. If I was an agent of someone who Florida was interested in now, I would tell my client that Florida is desperate now and that he should ask for the moon.

                  It is not reasonable to us. We want to micromanage. When Steve Jobs came back to Apple to save it, they did not tell him who his team would have to be.

                  The truth of the matter is we do not know what transpired. It's like the children's game telephone, anyone citing a "source" is at best extrapolating a snippet of a conversation that are at least 2-3 degrees removed from the actual conversation. So something like "he asked about the current staff", gets extrapolated to "Florida said he had to keep certain staff". People (like several on this board), run with this innuendo because it fits whatever narrative they want to support. I choose to believe what is most logical, all principled ADs are not going to interfere with an active coach, Strickland started evaluating non-active coaches (Kelly), Kelly expressed interest so seeing that all the other candidates are active coaches, he pursued more in-depth conversations, there may or may not have been some discussion regarding the parameters of a hire, and then UCLA came along, while a shocker to some, some people genuinely do not like the south or the SEC. Kelly went with something that is familiar (Pac-12), and fits his ego/personality after all his NFL stints (LA vs Gainesville). That's that. It wasnt money and definitely not a commitment to facilities.

                  carry on

                    I tend to agree. It for sure wasn't money, because I'm sure UF offered the same or more than UCLA did. To me, it just appears all those who said he was a "west coast guy" were right after all.

                      They just opened a stand alone football facility back in August.

                      Your post is argumentative, nothing else. The burden is not on Strcklin to disprove your "butt hurt because we lost out on Chip" accusations.

                      Have a blessed Sunday!

                        It's such a stupid move that I find it hard to believe that it happened.

                        Regarding Foley, "one of those", now that's funny.

                        And yes, in the absence of real information, and without hysteria, etc. etc., I am giving Stricklin and Co. the benefit of the doubt.

                          Thanks for filling us in. I didn’t know this should have happened at the meeting. BTW, your hair’s on fire.
