2nd highest paid AD and we hire Screech so we can keep a few current staffers and save some money. Blank check bounced
Yeah DW really pulled one over on us, the joke is on UT... "pay me a bunch of money, don't worry, I got you"........ then texts his former coach and asks if he'll join him in getting a BS raise...
Sounds like Pruitt saying he's got a plan and hiring his buddies.... Sound familiar?

I have a hard time seeing him get past that 8 win mark. Thats why I want to define failure.
Year 1: 5-7 recruiting 17
Year 2: 6-6 recruiting 15
Year 3 7-5 recruiting 15
Year 4 8-4 recruiting 19
Year 5 8-4 recruiting 24
Then what do you do?
Idk.... But Ik We’ll definitely be in better shape than we’ve been in 10 years

Just talked to my buddy that is real close with the UCF staff for obvious reasons and they just got off the phone with the OC and he said its a Tenn rumor. The staff would be shocked it it happened but he also said the rumor is getting bigger and bigger so they are receiving a lot of calls. Again he would be shocked if it happened
Anyone got Josh on speed dial? We might as well ask him directly.

The good. JH took Scott Frost's recruits and did well with them at UCF for a year or so as HC. He took Gary Pinkel's roster at Mizzou and did well with them for two seasons as OC.

The not so good. He took his own Okie offensive recruits down to the point of being fired. He was there 9 seasons, first 4 as QB coach, last 5 as co-OC/QB coach. He took his own UCF recruits with some Frost holdovers and has trended down on W/L while keeping the O scoring high.

There's plenty of history on the guy. He's purely an OC, not really a HC, even on the G5 level. What am I missing? Hire him as an OC, not a HC of a P5 program. I realize we are playing on a G5 level, but we hired an expensive DW to change that.

**** Steele @Bassmaster_Vol
He needs to be gone
Shannon can coach defense
He’s a problem who causes internal rifts and will keep our own stuck up ******* media too involved in all the workings of UT
All local media should be shown the door with the way they have reported the last 5-10 years
They are huge problems taking even the smallest rumor and making it national news

Not sure, and if that is the case D White just diminished his rep by taking this job, maybe this was a challenge he wasn't quite prepared for?

I always kind of felt if we couldn't get on base with a decent coach we would have to develop our own or use this hire as a bridge to the next search. This is just really out of left field and I feel there are a number of obviously better hires that could be made. Hopefully White is as advertised.
If DW is what they say he is, UT DESPERATELY needs that right now. Maybe in a few years he'll get us out of the hole we've dug for ourselves (that too many here don't believe we're in) and be attractive to top tier coaches again..

Hell, who knows, maybe we strike gold with Huepel.. It's not like hiring the right coach is verifiable science...

It may not be. But we don’t know that. People freaking out and wanting White fired are lunatics. We don’t even know what his staff would be. Lebby, Steele, Garner is a heck of a start for this guy and much better than what he has. Offense will not be a problem
It’s all about who he can bring in. Hire some
2 mil coordinators. I mean that’s how Orgeron won and he can’t even form a complete sentence.

Not to be "that guy", but he did have a better last year than James Franklin, and I think Franklin woukd be a total homerun. 3 losses in year 3 a combined 7 points. Only one double digit loss in his career.

I bleed orange, but remember we just had a losing streak to rival no other, all by double digits. I remember sitting in car last week when DW was announced. Several people, me included, made the remark that we would take it if it was a package deal with Huepleliehuly(what's his name) 😆 If this is our coach(who knows), may be the best to hope for(none of us have seen the report or heard from ncaa)
