That's 3 years down the road. There is more important things to look ahead. Like SEC title, maybe national title, recruiting and so on.

But right now, I think Coach Tanner is going to go with the smoothest transition. So that is why I think, now, Whammy is going to be the leader in the clubhouse when the time to replace Spurrier comes. I may be wrong, but I think he has to know that he has a better than average chance of getting this job if he sticks around. Unlike EJ, Whammy is still relatively young and is still growing in the profession. I think the next order of business will be to name him assistant head coach (if he doesn't already have the title, I forget) or give him the head coach in charge of the defense title.

What I do know is that when the time nears, Tanner and Spurrier are going to have a plan laid out and that should ease the stress of a lot of USC fans. I just don't think Tanner and Spurrier are going to be going outside the family for a replacement though unless it is someone with a strong Spurrier tie.
I could definitely see it playing out like that but to me he needs another year or two of success before the assistant HC. Tye Nix was doing great for a couple of seasons too. all of this assumes we continue to win bigtime and get an SEC or two. Otherwise things will probably turn sour at the end and we'll want a totally new regime. Although, I expect coach spurrier will always have influence in Carolina sports from now on, if he wants it. One thing is I have absolute confidence in Tanner's ability to identify good candidates, not botch a search by getting rejected multiple times and to sell his candidate on Carolina. Also, respect for not going with "pissed it away" there.

As of now, this could change, Whammy is my choice. Proved he can run the defense. Can recruit! Would just need to get the right OC.

I don't think we will see a HCIW but you will see Spurrier have input on the next coach quite like Lou did with Spurrier.

When the HBC leaves there will be a nationwide search, we will be at point and be able to steal a head coach from a major team out of a big time conference like Arky did.

Hopefully not. I don't like the title in the first place because it unnecessarily limits a team when replacing their head coach. You can still hire that assistant to takeover without the HCIW tag, while also being able to interview potentially better candidates. In addition, I simply wouldn't pick anyone on our current staff to takeover full head coaching duties.

Default Re: Will we have a coach in waiting?

having a head coach in waiiting causes too many problems. i got no problem hiring from within down the line if thats the best move, but giving someone that title for the sake of continuity and recruiting hasnt really worked anywhere.

i dont think spurrier would go for it either, feeling like it puts a countdown on his tenure and sort of undermines his authority.

Good points ... we would just need a solid Offensive Coordinator under Whammy.

HCIW is an awful idea.

I always think about Joker Phillips. He was a HCIW.

If Kentucky did an actual national search for a HC after Brooks left, they would've had a much better opportunity to not suck. However, they were locked in with Joker, and we all see how that turned out.

I hate the whole idea of HCIW. Any time a HC slot comes open, you want to find the best guy, and it may turn out that he's not the one the job has been promised to.

HC in waiting ? Don't think so................. But, the new head coach will probably be a defining moment in our football progam, as well as Tanner's AD tenure. Lets hope its a home run................

I don't like the idea of having a head coach in waiting. Naturally, the top assistants will be candidates when that time comes, but there may also be another incredible candidate available (in that hopefully far-off year) that we'd be foolish to pass on.

That said, every time the subject comes up, people feel the need to bash Spurrier Junior. What has he done to deserve that treatment? He seems like a solid coach, a good recruiter, and a good guy. I just don't understand the bashing. He may never become a head coach here, but I'll bet good money that he becomes a head coach somewhere, someday. And after years of learning by his dad's side, I'll bet he becomes a good one. To declare that he "would be awful" is asinine.
