The biggest issue many Coaches had with interviewing for the UT job, there was no AD in place...Perrin was a stopgap until a new AD was hired, would you put your future on getting hired by a Houston Lawyer without one hell of a guaranteed contract that UT was not going to offer..several Coaches may have wanted the job, but they also wanted to be hired by the man they would be working for..the UT Prez was in China and really did not give too much of a krap what was going on

Most of the coaches agents just used the Texas opening to get a raise. Paul Mainieri one of those. Easy money.

Not saying it wasn't a ploy to get a richer contract, but Mainieri went to Austin and interviewed for the job, according to one of the articles (linked) in this thread.

Yet UT landed a coach of the year at a fraction of the cost of Coach PM at LSU? Oh and one may have made a CWS this year, the other was playing golf. So whats ur point?

'nut, yes, he was. NATIONAL Coach of the Year, adding onto his Big 12 Coach of the Year award.

Scroll up and see TPS's post about his resume, click the link. He's done nothing short of amazing things in two years in Austin.

Congrats to Tim Tadlock.

David Pierce was named Coach of the Year by Baseball America. There's no shortage of CotY awards. You're clearly not a David Pierce fan. I am. So it goes.

Dave...I have no ill feelings toward DP, hell if you can't win at UT then you are not much of a Coach...The Stadium is beautiful, although not really on campus...the co-eds are nice on the eyes,
( just ask Major Applewhite ).....and they have a course of study for everyone with a pulse !!!
