If Sean Elliot were named coach tomorrow, who is he going to call? He would have to build a staff. Do you think he has the contacts to build a top tier SEC staff after a stint at App State and 3 years at Carolina?
Do you think Whammy would stay on after being passed over? No. So who would he call? Do you think he has the track record and contacts to get a John Chavis, a Stoops brother, etc?
His offensive contacts, outside of this staff are FBS guys. You would assume Steve JR or Mangus would possibly...possibly stay on. But Mangus has been a head coach before. Does he want to work for a Oline coach who's never been a coordinator?
Again, promoting Sean Elliot from an inconsistently performing position coach, to head coach of a top 10-15 SEC program would be the most reckless thing this program could possibly do. I get why you like him, I do too, he's a good recruiter and he's firey, which is what 80% of assistant coached are hired to be.
Charlie Strong or Gruden and I'm beyond happy
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
I have never been one of the one's who say you have to hire a proven guy. You are thinking of someone else. I was all for giving Tanner the AD job, and I was all for giving Holbrook the baseball job. I hope that when the time comes, we promote from within.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Left to right: Reed and Blondie,
The best thing as far as program stability would be to promote from within. When the time comes that SOS retires, I hope the right man is already on staff.
