2 Good Leaders Better Then 1!

I like the idea of bringing in experienced and proven BCS coordinators to run the show. Building a football team is no easy task and will require a LOT of time and details to iron out that aren’t even foodball/player related. I think in the long haul they will be much better bringing on a Head Coach/Defense Coordinator and Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator who have experience working together and get along well. Add they are BCS coordinators with many years experience at the top levels of football.

I would LOVE to get a name like Amato, but do you really think he can land top notch coordinators for the price we are paying? He would be good for sales/interest but I don’t think he will be good for building this team to be the best we can be in the immediate years. What’s more important interest now or winning right away?

If it’s winning right away, I’d go with the 2 leaders approach!

Amato reminds me of Seifert at this point. Looking for one last gig for 2-4 years and will be gone. Do you think he will spend as much time developing this program as 2 younger coordinators would who want to PROVE their skills?

The more I think about it the more I agree with you ninersfan99. When I first bought my FSL’s, I thought we would be lucky to get App States QB coach as a head coach. To think that we could possibly get two BCSish coordinators would be an awesome get.

I understand why folks are upset about not interviewing Amato. I am not thrilled with this decision either, however, don’t take that out on these two guys. Take that out on Judy Rose.

Interest. BTW, Judy has said the following over the last 18 months (almost verbatim):

  1. Our first coach will need to be a salesman atleast as much as a coach.
  2. Our first coach may not be our first “winning” coach".

While I might not agree on the idea of two good leaders being better than 1, I would not mind having a strong co-pilot helping out our pilot when he needs him.

Who says they aren’t salesman? I never met them until today, have you? Who says they cant sell a program to the city and the fans?

Give the guys a chance, maybe they can!

NOt me…calm down.

Mullen on our offensive game plan.

We've got to match the quarterback to the offense, of course," said Mullen, who coached record-setting quarterback Riley Skinner at Wake Forest. "But we're going to continue to be a shotgun, no-huddle offense, very up-tempo. We'll flip it around a little bit.

I like it. Will make us a very exciting team to watch if we can get the right personnel to run it.

Hell yes. We also will need a nice offensive line if we want our quarterback to last 4 years, but I’m looking forward to it!

Still a little shocked we were able to pull in Mullem as an OC

Same here, initially, I was skeptical b/c he was fired and for some reason a bunch of WVa fans blamed him for their troubles this year, even when they were second in the BE in offense. Reading into it a bit more he was replaced as OC by the coach in waiting who replaces Bill Stewart next year. He was basically a sitting duck/fall guy.

ID, I’m sure you’re happy we grabbed him and not Mark Schmidt and his Power I offense.

I’m still hoping we grab Mark Schmidt to be our running backs coach.
