In all seriousness, the James Madison Head Coach checks all the boxes and his QB is in the portal. The guy has never had a losing season at multiple schools and is known as a QB guru.

He took the job at Indiana. He's not available.

Potential candidates to watch for the job include Tulane offensive coordinator Slade Nagle, Florida State offensive coordinator Alex Atkins, LSU quarterbacks coach Joe Sloan, Missouri defensive coordinator Blake Baker, Jacksonville State head coach Rich Rodriguez and Troy head coach Jon Sumrall.

Not impressed. We've seen what Nagle does, or doesn't. Atkins doesn't actually call the plays, Baker might be interesting, Sumrall will probably wait one more year for a P5 job if he doesn't get one this year, and RRod isn't coming back.

Rich Rod will come back for the right price.

If Sumrall isn't hired by the end of the day or early tomorrow morning, I have a bad feeling about this hire.

Like the AD job I wonder if will attract the better candidates.

It could with the right kind of selling. But I'm not optimistic.

You’ll have to hire a coach that knows there’s a ceiling at Tulane and once it’s reached it’s best to move on.
Playing G5 in CUSAAC limits the field substantially.

The reality is 95% of the jobs out there are potential stepping stones (even Notre Dame).

Hire the best man available, and hope he is always in the discussion of being poached by another program.

Absolutely have to hire a coach who can handle the portal. The portal is the key to sustained success and Fritz thrived on it at Tulane. He gained much more than he lost to the portal. High School recruiting classes have become far less critical to winning.

The "seasrch" should last no more that one week

This isn’t like the AD hire for me. In this case every fan already knows the resumes and the interviews are irrelevant.

If it’s not Sumrall someone somewhere screwed the pooch.

Triple his salary and give him the job. He will immediately bring talent through the portal.

Which is exactly what Fitts said. “Within the week.” I think they already have their guy.

Yes. But we hired a search firm to find a baseball coach.

Not interested. At all. He’s not the right fit for us and his offense is not the future of college football the way it was 20 years ago

Who cares about the search firm? That’s a check the box move. I have no idea why you guys get hung up on that. The search firm isn’t relevant. We hired a search firm with Fritz too, it doesn’t matter. The firm is just the school’s agent.

Exactly. You’ve made my point that it’s a joke.

So what do we have an AD for? That's HIS job. We don't need someone else to be the school's "agent".

It’s lazy is what it is. Oh yea, Harris officially starts January 3, 2024. 🫣 has those important lose ends to tie up at Northern Iowa.

When you’re negotiating a deal of this size you absolutely want someone doing some of the groundwork in negotiating before it reaches the principals. You want an agent for the same reason the coach wants an agent.
