Briles, mahlzan, freeze, Morris have all shown that you can come from HS and make an impact, but I'm gunshy with a move like that.

Two words:

Todd Dodge.

You have to have the right situation, and you better have the right staff around you.

I was gonna say Todd Dodge too! Great minds my man.

Also shows that one solid player (Riley) can't carry and entire team. 

I just want an electric offense, if we want people in the seats, the community, we need to put up points, people will come to see the show.

I am curious to see what coach "stay the course" Partridge does at the end of the season…
If BW is offered a job I'm sure he will leave to take a head-coaching job, however if he is not offered anything I am not sure whether CP will keep him or let him go.
It certainly would go against his mantra the past few months if he were to fire him and also could possibly cost our offense another year of learning a new system.

LMAO at Todd Dodge he is a FAILED college coach who only got hired in the 1st place because his 4 star QB son went along with him.
He was 6-37 at UNT then spent one year as the Pitt QB coach and fired.
I hope you guys are joking.
We do not need some high school coach that runs a fancy offense.
We need someone with experience who can make up for the lack of it on the rest of the staff.

I meant I almost pointed out that Todd dodge is the other end of the spectrum. Just having one stud player, Riley (his son) doesn't win games. 

The group of coaches and coordinators I listed are all doing just fine though.

I'm not a supporter of Harriott getting the job, but I wouldn't be shocked if it happened.

What type of O did Harriott run at the HS program, how successful was it, and at what level or classification did they play? In other words, was it fun, exciting and successful or was it just overpowering little private schools who did not recruit as well.

One does not become an OC after your first year as a college position coach. OH WAIT ! This is FAU. He very well may get the job. Just kidding. Roger needs to put in his time at this level. He will be ready down the road. Just not yet.

Wrong again. Chad Morris is the OC at Clemson (a far better program than FAU) and here is his path to the program:

In addition, he is the highest paid OC in college football.

1994-1997 Eustace HS (TX)
1998-1999 Elysian Fields HS (TX)
2000-2002 Bay City HS (TX
2003-2007 Stephenville HS (TX)
2008-2009 Lake Travis HS (TX)
2010 Tulsa (Assoc. HC/OC/QB)
2011-present   Clemson (OC/QB)

Now,Harriott has an impressive resume as a coach at U School, so maybe we'll be wrong, but I really get the feeling by giving him the assoc OC job this year, it was setting him up to take over. Partridge asked Wright for just one year of consistency (inmy opinion) and this was the transition year for Harriott.
