You may run like Hayes, but you hit like $*!#
Wait a minute, Charlie Strong turned down the head job at Cal, then spent years bitching about not getting an opportunity to be a head coach? Something about that guy just seems to rub people the wrong way, and maybe it's that kind of attitude.
I suppose Morris knows he'll have other opportunities and has no ties to the west coast, but that seems like a pretty good job to be turning down. Besides Southern Cal, UCLA, and Oregon, it's probably as good or better than any job in the Pac-12. No excuse not to be able to recruit (and Tedford did it well enough), so it sounds like they just need a better Xs and Os guy. I think getting some fresh blood on the coaching staff will serve them well.
Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm a schizophrenic and so am I.
I've never heard that Strong was offered the Cal job. I keep up with Cal and know a big booster there. News to me!
edit: meant Strong, not Ward!

Interesting. I know a couple donors and a former player who all have Peterson as top choice. Don't know if that sentiment is shared internally. Hue Jackson seems to be most likely as of now, IMO.
Spent a couple years at Cal and agree it is different than most jobs/programs. For better or worse Berkeley is a very unique place. I attended the Cal/ASU game this year and they did a great job with the stadium remodel. They still have trouble drawing more than 40-50k for anyone other than Stanford/UCLA, though.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
