I totally agree!! Look at what has happened to the program since he went back to UF as an asst. I don't see a better guy to bring in as the head coach if we could even get him.
Now he might be out of our league.
That why you should always listen to OC40
owlcountry40 saidMcall might be out of out league now a top assistant on the number 1 team the country also seeing there might have been a violation by Jarvis. Maybe we can fire him at a discount.Posted On: Feb 28th 2014, 1:29 PM
Much like football there are only 126 HC jobs around. At some point assitants have to run thier own show even if it means less presteige.
