We hired a coat tail rider who hadn't ever built a program, spent 1 minute on a p6 bench or recruited north of the Ohio river. It was just a bad fit, he was in over his head from day 1. Thanks to all the talent Fred left him, he was able to hide it for a few years but eventually it caught up with him. This league is no joke, you play over half of your conference games against hall of fame caliber coaches, it's as tough as it gets. Very hard for an up and coming type of coach to get traction and have success.
I would prefer the person who has spent time on a P6 bench and recruited north of the Ohio river did it as a head coach.....not an assistant. Because Hallihan was never going to be Orr if you know what I mean.
