Well, they had their greatest success with their last Mormon
No question. It's got decent natural scenery, what with trees and water and all. It's got a brand new stadium that's barely been used for D-1 football. Plus, you're choosing between a program that ran off a coach for a stupid reason or a program that basically tried to keep their coach for ANY reason. Pretty easy call, IMO.
He should be. The guy can coach offense, and the NFL clearly has decided it's going to have to go all-in on the spread pretty soon, so he's going to have his shot with any number of pro teams if he wants it. If I were him, I'd take a high profile OC job for a head coach that will mentor him and take his time this time around.
So word is Dana Holgorsen did want the job but Kirby Hocutt refused to give him an interview. All of it seems a little surprising but this is what they are saying. Tech AD cutting his own path
USC people saying they have hired Kingsbury to be their OC.
Some indication of confirmation
Burkhardt implied the deal is agreed upon, but nothing is signed while the NFL is calling.
It's an interesting choice for him. I would like to know his thought process. The NFL came begging as that Rams-KC game got the whole league thinking about Big 12/spread offenses.
Rumor is that Aaron Rodgers is pushing hard for Green Bay to hire him, but HC is pushing back. If GB hired KK as HC (not a chance), that would open the door for Linc to leave Norman
That might be true. I was surprised he went with USC so quickly, given the current terrain. But, maybe he didnt?
Get fired by Tech will be the best thing to ever happen to KK since he stopped having to take snaps against Texas.
been listening to sports talk radio from Lubbick for last 30-45 min---lot of irate tceh fans in regards to hiring of Matt Wells (apparently a done deal) and not even trying to talk with Holgorsen---they(fans) seem to think that the hire is based upon money (and lack of spending it)--only time will tell if it's a decent hire
So the Saban to elite Tech thing isn’t happening?
The only coup for Tech would be if Wells convinced his old friend Aranda to leave LSU and be his DC.
Aranda, however, would have to be careful and not drive through Rusk after leaving Baton Rouge for Lubbock
What about Leach? Who was also willing to talk to them
but they still owe him over $2M, so that ain't happening...
Dana got some splaining to do at home
What say ye, Dallasfan?
If someone intentionally cheated you out of millions, would you ever trust them again?
If they gave me $15M more than what they originally cheated me out of...then probably.
Matt Wells it is
Pretty impressive to beat out Nick Saban for the Tech HC job
He turned Utah State into a winner. That's pretty impressive.
FWIW, here is some of a coach ranking from TSN --
Sporting News 2018 CFB Coach Ranking
99. Matt Wells, Utah State
73. Seth Littrell, North Texas
64. Matt Rhule, Baylor
63. Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech
59. Neal Brown, Troy
58. Scott Satterfield, Appalachian State
57. Bill Clark, UAB
31. Dana Holgorsen, West Virginia
30. David Cutcliffe, Duke
29. Mike Leach, Washington State
Since 2013, Utah State and Texas Tech have the exact same record vs. teams that finished above .500: 9-33
Wells is an Okie looking to go "home" when Gundy retires.
Dana got some Coach Bro glasses going on...
I am not impressed.
