The guy is 5-5 at Tulane…TULANE.
They are not and never will be loaded with talent.
He shapes his teams to fit the talent on hand.
Their D plays tight press coverage 75% of the time.
Their O is slow down multiple option. But he does this to limit possessions of the other team.
At SHSU they ran a multiple spread. Their QB Bell put up big numbers. Their RB was FCS leading rusher. 2 trips to the finals.
Goes to Ga. Southern and wins the SBC twice running pure option. One year’s losing only to Georgia Tech on a bad of fails call.
His teams almost never shoot themselves in the foot with special teams, stupid penalties, bad tackling, or bad D. They are always fundamentally sound.
I know I sound like his mom. But they guy just wins everywhere he goes.
CMA was definitely not in that category. That’s why I never understand when folks say “you can’t let HC go so soon or no one will want the job” Rubbish, UH IS the plum G5 job. Most hot, upcoming, hard chargers will jump all over the HC opportunity. Yes, they will get poached if kicking tail. This is the way it will always be until get to the P5 promise land
