I mentioned this in another thread, but they seem to have their own version of the "Michigan Man" syndrome. They hired Richt in large part because he played there, and have hired three of their own assistants to replace the outgoing coach (Coker, Shannon, Diaz).
Golden didn't work out so it's easy to criticize that hire as well, but I don't recall it looking that bad at the time. He had turned Temple from a laughingstock to a decent program.
It's also hilarious that Diaz is referring to them as a rebuild when he was the DC under the previous regime.
