Way too early names to consider for potential coaching vacancy
walty12 said3. Charlie Weis Jr
Knows the program and continued his success with Lane at Ole Miss this year
Am I the only person paying attention to Ole Miss this year? Success?
Did I read John Gruden on here?
BOT needs to get together $3m a year. Go steal a HC that has proven they can win at a school like Troy, Toledo, etc. Impress me, show me we can play the coach search the way a real college program can. Don’t take a wing and a prayer. Go hire a guy who is currently getting it done somewhere else.Posted On: Nov 27th 2022, 10:21 AM
Yeah Ole miss was second in total offense in the SEC only behind Tennessee. They also were by far the top rushing team in the SEC which is what I really like the most. We have always been our best as a program when we run the ball.
But I agree on your second point. If we can take a coach from another G5 program who has already had success that could be the best move. To actually compete in the American we will need to pay a coach. If we don’t what was the point of the move to begin win?
I’d bet USF pays their coach at minimum 2 million a year maybe 3.
As a small school FAU still have a very small AD budget compared to those in CUSA and even more so in the AAC.
fauowls44 saidWithout doing much research, my first call would be to Charlie Weiss Jr.
Don’t know much about the other OC-types, but if we are going with an inexperienced HC, give me the guy that’s been around Lane for years.
Frost had great success with White’s brother at UCF, so he could be a real candidate here.Posted On: Nov 26th 2022, 8:00 PM
Charlie Weiss Jr. has no HC experience and that is a must for our next hire.
After he left here and went to USF, they had the third worst offense in the AAC both years he was there.
My guess is Lane controls the offense at Ole Miss and Charlie arrived there as OC two years after Lane started.
Ole Miss lost the last three games of the season and 4 of last 5 games.
Pass on Charlie Weiss Jr. please.

Offensive coach is needed to me . Recruit the South Florida speed. Tennessee and tcu oc's also work with that list.

Wildcard: Neal Brown - if he is let go
These coaches are nominated based on the following criteria:
1. They have won where they have been
2. Where they have been, they have won
3. Did I mention that they are winners?
That's exactly what we need to go after.
