Petition to Promote Brian Wright to FAU Head Coach

Add topic

Post

Created an online petition here to generate official support to promote Brian Wright to permanent head coach of the FAU football team.

If you believe in the cause, please share, tweet, post to Facebook, whatever you can do.

I want to make Pat Chun aware of this and let him know that while he has final decision to pull the trigger on our new coach, there are many people out there (including the OSF donors) in the community that would support Wright as our head coach. Everyone who is an FAU fan should get a voice in these matters.

Now, I understand most people want to see what happens after Chun interviews multiple candidates. He will inevitably still do that, even if you sign this petition. The only thing this petition does is say, "if you want to consider Brian Wright, he has all these people behind him that believe in what he can do for FAU football."

That said, as always, Go Owls!

P.S. I don't respond to guest posts. All guests are encouraged to register with the site.

Not really…FIU is 1-10 this year, if FAU cant beat them then Wright does not deserve the job.

I think bringing home the Shula Trophy would be a strong argument for him and a great way to close
out the year on national tv bowl game or no bowl game.

Signed.  The guy has done everything in his power up to this point to earn this job.  Yes, the competition the last 2 weeks has been bad, but we are taking care of business the way good teams do and burying these teams.  Maybe we would have beat these teams under Pelini, but if that is the case, why make a change?  This program is going in the right direction and a major change now would only start the process over again….now I reserve the right to change my mind if we somehow lose to FIU, but I can't see that happening at this point.  This team is rolling right now and hopefully they get the chance to go to a Bowl and face some stronger competition to finish out the year.

Sorry…all signed petitions are irrevocable endorsements of Coach Wright…you cannot rescind "irrevocable" declarations.

Wright and Staff - Could Lose Them

If Chun does not move on Wright for the job, then Wright will get an offer from another program and we will lose him and much of his staff.  Stop the pointless interviews and hire Wright!  If the offer is mage soon, Wright may command less salary than Pelini which will leave some money to attract additional assistant coach talent.

We win a few games and everyone thinks he should be the coach but everyone is overlooking how much work Pelini put into the team before his termination. Pelini completely changed the culture, we lost a lot of close games, and then Wright inherits the sweetest part of the schedule and low and behold we win (which we would have done regardless) and now he should be the coach. Wright has not earned anything yet, nor demonstrated why he should be the coach of this team. I know it has been a while since we have won a bunch of games, and actually put a team away, but let's do that national search and only then if Wright is the guy, hire him. No need to rush because we have finally got some wins and the team is going in the right direction.
