When there are job openings, and your assistants and HC are on EVERYONE'S short list. I know we have had a couple. Who and when have any of our coaches been truly preyed upon ? Looking back there haven't been too many. When our head coaches are fired, you don't see them being grabbed up by other Power 5 schools before the pink slip gets cold. Where were Akers, McWilliams, Mackovic, Brown, Strong the year after they were let go ? What OC/DC were pursued hard by other schools while at Texas ? One reason we don't get the top flight guys ......We wait too long before acting and hiring the right guys. We hang on to the so-so or mediocre coach instead of going after the right guy. When our defense was ok but not great we stuck with Orlando.....We knew our offense wasn't up to snuff, but stuck with Beck.....Would Saban settle ? Would Dabo settle ? Would Meyer settle ?. NO.....If they don't have top - notch guys they find someone else asap before it hits the fan. We hire people who hire buddies, and are content with their multi-million dollar salaries .... Is Herman going to go get the best out there ? Can he ? It falls back on when you go after them. It may be too late.
