That is where we disagree. I think a mediocre OC at the P5 level should be able to put together a competent offense that suits the roster. I am not expecting him to win the conference or even the Coastal with such an offense; but at least be competitive enough with it to beat the Citadel and not get shut out. How many years did we put up with complaining about our last OC being too stubborn and more focused on the system than winning? Sadly, I am not the least bit confident our current OC can win once the roster is filled with his own players.I think the issue with this idea is what kind of OC do you think we could of gotten that would agree to come here to Not run their own offense for the first 3 years? That's even assuming the offense staff would be proficient in multiple kinds of offenses. Or conversely do we try to hire someone who could run a good offense that fits the current roster with the plan being to boot them in 3-4 years to run the offense we wanted to run?
My impression is that the idea that any OC should or can install any kind of offense to suit the players for any given year is kind of a romanticized view of the job. Maybe some coaches are able to, but I'd imagine they are pretty valuable commodities.
