Nicholas Cage. He did a good job raising Arizona.
Most schools aren't coached by their former players.
There's always Butch Davis.
schools usually prefer to keep it in the family if they can
how do they do it in turkey?
go for foreigners, but recently not as much
Dig up Dick Tomey for another tour.
they never shoulda forced him out like they did. ever since then the program has sucked. remember the mackovic hire? lol. tomey actually did pretty well at SJSU
Why wouldn't you hire the pirate if he's available?
They really need (a) a gimmick offense that will cover up for the talent gap/recruiting disadvantages
(b) a flashy offense that would attract quality leftovers from Cali and Texas.
talent gap? arizona has had some solid players over the years.
chris mccalister, trung canidate, antoine cason, rob gronkowski, dennis northcutt
california players already go to arizona, as do texans. tucson is an attractive place/school for a kid wanting to play football
I'll say this and then catch heat from many in here i'm sure
but the arizona job is VERY comparable to the tech job, in terms of stature, players, program strength. academically arizona isn't as strong but it is a much bigger school
sounds like a crappy job to me then
What is Arizona's recruiting ranking? What is their best ever recruiting ranking?
A few good men don't mean there isn't a gap...
What is it? You are the one that said there is a gap, you should google it for us
crew only proves my point. if you lined up all of tech's great players over the last 15 years, the number and quality would probably look very comparable to arizona. but i guess we needed a gimmick offense to bridge the recruiting gap as well, right?
Tech does have a talent gap.
Yes, yes we do need a gimmick offense if we want to be a major power.*
Chan ain't no idiot. He's proving it in Buffalo. Yet he was 7-5 rinse repeat even with above average recruiting by our stds.
And we have better recruiting than Zona.
Zona and GT are similar jobs. Winnable leagues with some breather games in the league. Recruiting disadvantages over the tip top conference schools, but enough advantages overall that you should never be on the bottom.
*personally I could see this changing if we can sustain big win totals for a few years. We don't have to beat Georgie for recruits, but we need to beat Auburn, Tenn, USC, Clem a little more often for Atlanta kids and voila we are a national powerhouse.
