Joker Phillips! Please oh please take him!

To steal the old joke...

You think your coach is bad? Take my coach... no seriously take my coach!

I can't believe he only had one arrest in 4 years. He really cleaned up the image of Miami.

Miami cannot afford a big name coach. Don't know who they can get but it won't be Richt, Leach, etc.

wish i could find the old threads where i said Shannon would fail at Miami and that he was a mediocre coach and people got on me and said i did not know what i was talking about. but the recent changes seem to have gotten rid of a lot of old threads. shame. i am sure this will help Randy more than we'll ever know, though LOL

If'n they cain't afford Gus Mal-A-Zahn, they sure as hell won't be able to afford BMFP!

AR is afix'n to make BMFP one of the highest paid HC's in the game... Or else, Jeff Long (AD) is afix'n to be fired! :D

In all honesty, Skip Holtz is a very good 'up-and-coming' HC that will be something special if'n he's given the chance at running a "bigtime program".

Skip would be a great hire for Miami. I am hoping Malzahn for selfish reasons. I don't know if he would fit in well at Miami though. He is more of a Clemson guy. :)

Personally, I think Vandy would be a good fit for Mal-A-Zahn. He started his HCing career at a private HS and that's really what made him famous (his Offensive scheme was made famous for getting big results outta lesser-type athletes). Vandy is close to his only known recruiting base (AR). And he'd be bringing Kiehl Frazier with him... Having a "big time" QB is a good start for any HC/Program. I could see Mal-A-Zahn raking up the 'leftovers' from the states of AR and TN and coaching them into one helluva potent Offense. Vandy has always had a decent Defense, so the HC/Schools rep would seem to compliment each other. The only thing I wonder about is if'n Gus has the kind of college ties that it would take to fill out a major CFB staff? :think:

They were 7-5... Not terrible by South Florida standards. But by Miami standards, that doesnt cut it. Especially now that he is like 4 or 5 years in or something.

Funny thing is they just gave him an extension before the season began. lol Fail.

That extention is one of the reasons why I'm surprised actually it's the main reason that and like I said it's not like they had a losing season this year. It will be interesting to see who they get.

I believe Miami at least until recently was paying Coker still. Now they will have to pay Shannon his money after the extension (LOL). Miami does not get money from NFL guys. They don't have their own stadium, they don't sellout games, they don't get major donations. They are in a financial jam every year without paying former coaches. That is how they got stuck with Shannon. Anything is possible, I suppose, but would be stunned if Miami had money to pay a coach more than a million a year if even that. No big name coach will come for 6 figures.

I agree. Without some increased alumni support, this was a HORRIBLE decision by Miami. They are going to have to really shop for the next coach, I doubt they even get some equal to Shannon this go around. Big, big mistake.

Gus Malzahn, the coach at Nevada, the one at SDSU is another to keep an eye on, Al Golden, Mike Mullen---and that's the college coaches.

Folks like Herm Edwards, and that dude that just got fired at Minnesota are also worth looking at.

I think Shannon's biggest mistake was hanging his hat on Jacory Harris and his group of buddies he brought over with him. I know they managed to beat Dabo and co. this year, but Harris is an idiot QB.

Agreed, Ault is already in the hall of fame. I can't picture a man at his age being willing to rip up his roots and head across the country to a school known for firing successful coaches.

I guess I was overly simplistic to make a point. The point is they don't give enough to overcome the lack of revenue in other areas. Also some guys go back and workout and are around the program but don't exactly open the checkbook while others can be generous. But to run their program and pay a big time coach and pay Shannon, they need a HUGE additional source of money to show up.

I specifically remember that thread. I believe my assessment of Shannon was that he was mediocre at best and a complete moron at worst.

Watched the 30 for 30 "Duh U" last night again. I think ESPN played it just for the Shannon firing. Still amazed at the Butch Davis bashing in that movie. The year after he left the team he was able to assemble won a NC for Coker and played for another the following season where they were robbed by Ohio State. I think Luke and all the other thugs want to tarnish Davis' image because he made an effort to clean up the program somewhat.

Part of me wants Miami to get their act together so they can steal some UF recruits, but watching that ESPN film makes me glad they are washed up.

Cant blame them. imo he only goes back to Florida if its to UF. the only other way id see him leaving is for a much better job.. like BAMA or UGA or LSU in the SEC or Notre Dame, Texas out of the SEC. I figure he will be hired away in time.. hopefully we can stay within at that time & keep on track.

So basically, enough UM boosters got together so that they can pay Gruden for 2 or 3, maybe 4, years so he can use UM as a stepping stone back to the NFL? Cool, it won't change Miami's standing in the long run. I still say they are simply staving off inevitably being eclipsed in South FL by USF.

I bet they still don't get him. IF they do, I want to go ahead and go on record now saying that it won't be worth whatever they have to pay him.

According to ESPN sources there is a 0% chance that Gruden will be the coach and that was after the meeting the two sides had today. If that is true then I guess Mullen is next.

True...I still don't think they land someone who will turn that program around. Too tall an order and any coach that is really capable of doing it isn't bringing their talents to South Beach.

Speaking of, I won't believe these rumors until ESPN airs Jon Gruden: The Decision. :D
