If the UF job were open right now instead of two years ago, I think Strong would be hired.
Strong interviewed for head coaching jobs at:

Cal
East Carolina
Kansas
Minnesota
Vanderbilt
considered by UK prior to the hiring of Brooks.

All passed on him.

Those numbers make no sense for those coaches resumes. The money it would take to get Gruden is not that much greater than those numbers and Gruden is a freaking home run. Far and away better than Strong or Gundy (by a mile)!
That would have been one of the first moves by Hart, do a economic impact of each coach. Hart knows!!
