An AD also has to be able to sell the job to an attractive candidate. Difficult to do when you're new to the university. I get that. DW jumped into a particularly difficult position. I can understand LA's point about familiarity in that instance. But if, say 5 years down the line, we're looking for a new FB coach again, and DW is still the AD, he needs to be able to sell UT to the most attractive candidate and not settle.
I don’t disagree with what you’re saying, just don’t think he walked into a situation that would allow him to really spend a ton of time negotiating with bigger candidates that weren’t showing serious interest.
