I can go ahead and answer for you: They offered Charlie Strong knowing that Gruden was not and is not coming. Im not sure why you guys are keeping this alive.
Well you are too by adding to the post count

QB coach. Tee Martin is at USC and has been contacted by Gruden.
If we believe reports, Cris Carter is the prospective WR coach, and he doesn't live or do studio work in LA.

They are flying Tee in for the presser!

thoughts?
That makes no sense. His taking a college job in no way conflicts with his ability to call one NFL game a week until late December.

Really?

Where is it confirmed that Strong was offered?

And I mean a confirmation by Strong or the AD.

That may be true.

but then again, if it is gruden, i dont think 2 extra weeks would be needed to help him out with recruiting. 5 stars would be scrambling to hop on board. if anything the dead period would give him time to decide who he wants to be a part of our class.

Just a simple question. I'll hang up and listen for a response from any of the all-knowing insiders.

Do you know for a fact that UT offered Strong? Simply citing Hyams, Low, et. al. does not constitute fact. They've proven to be less than reliable.

Posts like the above quoted make me hope that UT hires Gruden.

We enjoy each others conversation. As long as the trolls stay out this thread stays peaceful and respectable. That is why.
