Ken VeryBigLiar: Why does anyone, college or pros, chase Gruden? Apart from his name he can't get his old assistants back. Without quality assistants like he used to have all you get all smoke and no fire.


Like when Gruden's former assistant coaches beat him in Super Bowl XXXVII.

He's been out of coaching for six years. You think he can blow a magic whistle and all of his best people will come back? Certainly that's what happened when Joe Gibbs came back... oh no wait it didn't.

IAmRight: Gonz: You ever heard of the Minnesota Vikings? McCombs used to own the franchise.

Whoops, I actually did hear of him from that. But I didn't really care to research him.


I doubt this is a racist thing since Dennis Green was his coach when he owned the Vikings.  More likely he is 85 years old and is either crazy or knows he is gonna die soon and wants the best chance to see his team win another bowl game.

JayCab: The full quote that people are referring to:

"I don't have any doubt that Charlie is a fine coach. I think he would make a great position coach, maybe a coordinator."

I don't need Alan Turing to break the code there.


The rest of the quote is important, too

As has been stated elsewhere, McCombs didn't hire Denny Green. He inherited him and dispatched him as soon as adversity reared its head

The Onion is prophetic: rumpelstiltskin: exick: Seems like a pretty simple solution to the problem. You want to have final, absolute authority over who does or does not get hired as the team's coach? Go back to owning a professional sports team.

Texas boosters do. Patterson must think he's found a loophole in the deal.

I saw him mention boosters in the article, but I figured it was just some weird Texas term.  It's actually a thing?


Someone needs to go watch the movie "Blue Chips"

As stated McCombs owned the team from 1998-2005....

Coaches were:
Denny Green 1998-2001 (inherited)
Mike Tice 2001-2005

So, you can't make much analysis from that, but, you can't claim Green was someone McComb embraced.  In fact, considering before he got fired after his 5-11 2001 season, Green's seasons were 11-5, 10-6, and 15-1 (and he'd been the coach since 1991, and NEVER had a record below .500 other than 2001)... most coaches get a "pass" for having one "poor" year when they have a track record like that (even with not making the Super Bowl).

Gonz: Second, shut up about UGA. Talk about an irrelevant program. You're the Clemson of the SEC. In fact, if Clemson and UGA switched places, nothing would change for either program. You're a pair of losers, you never live up to the hype, and nobody cares about you.


RAWR, time to go change that tampon biatch.  You sound like a farkin texan.

My point wasn't that Gruden would be a good or a bad coach now, my point was that whether any of his former assistants come back is totally irrelevant.

I've never understood why they expect college coaches to coach a football team, recruit players and kiss boosters' asses all in one package. Why not just hire Strong to be the coach and keep Brown around to do the recruiting and hobnobbing, since those were the things he seemed to actually be good at.

damn yanks: Love the hire, Strong reminds me alot of Brown when they hired him.


Really? Mack Brown was a suspect hire at the time since his lone claim to fame was a dirty North Carolina program.

To me Charlie is a stronger hire than a coach thought to be on his was out of a tainted program.

steamingpile: Red is an idiot, Charlie Strong is probably the best hire they could hope for.


damn yanks: Love the hire, Strong reminds me alot of Brown when they hired him.


charlie strong doesn't enjoy (and that's putting it nicely) dealing the media or the politics of boosters.  how the fark is he going to deal with texas?  he's barely been hired and ta-da there are boosters to politic.  there's the longhorn network to deal with (even happy mack biatched about that).  strong once closed a spring practice.  the texas media won't abide that.  in summary, if charlie doesn't win a national title within 2 years and at least 10 games next year, he's going to be frowned upon for his dislike of all the bullshiat that comes with being the head coach at texas.

/and since it's fark; some boosters may disapprove of the fact he married a white woman...

If he wasn't on the cusp of getting an NFL HC gig, they could have really trolled him and gotten Jay Gruden.
