9-1… The guy just continues to win.
He’s not coming here dude.
We turned him down like 3 times in the last 15 years. After he made it to cotton bowl he said he’s not leaving Tulane.
“Ship has sailed”
Barely won yesterday against Tulsa. SMU demolished Tulsa something like 69-10.
Too old anyway now. He has to completely rebuild with us and he doesn’t have that kind of time left.
All coaches say they’re not leaving until they do
Can he recruit? Coaching alone won’t be enough to compete for CFP berths
He turned down Georgia tech man. He ain’t
FKN coming to our POS program to rebuild.
He does lot with a little. Recruiting at Tulane is not easy
Maybe but last two weeks won by a total of 5pts. Not all that.
Last year when they were loaded, they were much more productive. Remember how they beat USC in the Cotton Bowl. This year is a rebuilding year, and at 9-1 I say that ain’t bad.
He’s a good coach, but he’ll be eligible for Social Security in another year or two. We can find someone younger who’s as good.
I really like Willie Fritz though he may be one of the few coaches to recognize he has it good where he is and decide to stay there.
Kelvin Sampson is eligible for social security and he’s doing okay. So is Nick Saban, Mack Brown, etc.
Kelvin Sampson, Mack Brown, etc., have built their programs already. It’s one thing to have an established program, it’s an entirely different scenario if you have to start building one when you’re in your mid 60’s.
He’s 63. The same age as Bob Stoops, the guy some on this msg board are talking up. His record says that he is far from being washed up.
Nick Saban is 72 and still going strong. Who here wouldn’t have hired him when he was 63?
Or maybe he still has the fire to win at the next level. I think he does
Mack Brown took over UNC at age 67.
Right on! (Does anyone still say that?)
How old was coach Sampson when he started here? Mack Brown inherited a pretty cold bed at UNC as well. So neither is all that different.
This program is not as bad as you think. There is a lot of talent there, it’s just not being utilized. A good fundamental coach can turn this program around quickly.
