Without a doubt it’s a major gamble. You are hiring a guy who has never run or installed an entire offense of his own. All hirings are a certain percentage of gambling but this is on the higher end.

I don't see how you could view it any other way.

And Muschamp's record hiring OC's is not exactly stellar.

By luck or by insight, I sure hope he got this one right.

I agree it's something of a gamble, though I believe that things will be better. I think the hope is that Werner can serve as a mentor and resource in the process for BMac, while also being a top notch QB coach. Add in Bentley and I expect (hope?) that it will be a more collaborative process, even though BMac will be in charge.

Any Coordinator hire is a gamble. Muschamp has a reputation for not gambling correctly on his OC hires. Turns out Kendal Briles, (an OC with 2 Top10 Scoring Offenses the past 3 years) was on the market for a new OC gig, he went to Houston. Muschamp chose McClensdon. It was absolutely a gamble, we'll see if it pays off. If next season, we aren't above AVG for Scoring and Total Offense, then the gamble failed, IMO.

Briles was abe to take an FAU offense that was ranked 80thNationally Rankied in '16 to 8th in '17 for Scoring Offense.

Plenty of "safe" hires end up tanking and plenty of "risky" hires end up being home runs. Every hire is a gamble. I mean if you just need to look at Clemson, Morris was a huge gamble at the time just like hiring internally to replace him. Same can be said about Venables who was being run off from OU, now we pray he leaves. TRob was a gamble hire since he hadn't been a DC before, he's about to be making 7 figures. I kind of like the "risky" hire usually because the coach getting the job is extremely hungry.

There was another point to the article, too. During the press conference, Muschamp and McLendon both spoke in generalities a lot. There wasn't a whole bunch of scheme-talk (which is odd for a Muschamp interview), though I'm sure there's plenty of planning going on that front. About as much as Mclendon said about the actual play-calling was they went to 7-man protections in 2nd half.

Lazy article by a lazy writer.

Either give some insight, write something less obvious, or, and this is a stretch, do some actual journalism and research something other than just sit around at a press conference and ask leading questions.

No major program is going to touch Kendall Briles right now. There is a reason that Kiffen was the only coach offering him a job and it happened to be at the only program to offer Kiffen a HCing job. Houston is a good place for him right now, they are known for taking chances on coaches as well as being a stepping stone to a power 5 team. In a couple of years when all the Baylor stuff finally goes away some power 5 team will hire him.

I said all hirings are gambles itís just how much. T Rob wasnít a huge risk since the HC would be there to run the D if he failed. This is a massive gamble seeing as he has ne we been around a top 10 O and has said he plans to keep running the same O ranked 108. Also the idea that the QB coach is mentoring the OC is comical. If he is guiding the OC than why is he not the OC? All in all, I hope it works out but the odds are against it.

Problem with our offense was the play caller never running anything other than the most basic plays not the scheme

I guess we will see next year if thatís the case. If that was the entire problem then we should be a top 25 O next year with our talent.
