I wouldn't necessarily call it a disaster, but hard to view it as a home-run either. You're probably right on the money about Texas fans being ticked off.
Somebody had linked an article about what their AD (Patterson) was like as GM of the Trailblazers, and I wonder if the prospect of working under such a tool had at least some impact on coaches lining up to say "no thanks" to the job over the past few weeks.

Charlie strong is a great choice as far a football coach goes. The issue will be how he does in the political aspect that goes with the Texas program. He is like the anti Mack Brown when it comes to that especially all that is involved with the Longhorn Network. His recruiting abilities could turn Texas into the juggernaut they think they should be. All the talent in Texas and his ties in Florida give him ties to the two most fertile recruiting grounds in football. I am curious to see who he hires as an offensive coordinator

I can't ever remember an off-season with so many jobs to fill and so few really good candidates. If you're an assistant coach trying to become a HC or a HC looking to take the next step and you don't pull it off this year...

Stoops to the Browns makes sense - McDaniels doesn't. I'm hoping Big Game Bob gets the nod.

It's official:

Texas: WDRB in Louisville reports Charlie Strong has told athletic director Tom Jurich he is indeed leaving for the Texas job.

----------------

Louisville: Louisville is targeting Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason, a source tells CoachingSearch.

Texas: ESPN's Joe Schad reports Charlie Strong is expected to be named Texas head coach on Sunday, with a press conference on Monday, and that Clint Hurtt is not expected to follow Strong to Texas.

Miami (FL): Athletic director Blake James tells The Miami Herald he is in regular communication with Al Golden and believes Golden will be Miami's head coach moving forward.

Really happy that Franklin could be on the way out. Hopefully Vandy makes an average hire if he does leave.

And thank goodness that we aren't looking for a new coach this year.

Louisville seems to be wanting the defensive minded coach again, at least to start with. Louisville is a good school with a chance to make noise in a relatively weak conference, realistic expectations for the football team and would be a great first job.

I hope we can keep most of our staff intact this year. The Vandy situation is what concerns me the most and the fact that Jr has already voiced his opinion on the Duke OC job.
