Positives/Negatives of coach prospects

Link…there is 3 pages….

Name: Turner Gill, Buffalo head coach

Age: 46

Background: Tom Osborne disciple, coached quarterbacks for over a decade at Nebraska.

Why it makes sense: Auburn could get in on the ground level with an up-and-comer in the industry who took the Bulls from 2-10 to MAC champions in three years at Buffalo.

Why it doesn’t: He has limited head coaching experience and no ties to the SEC, a major demerit for a school that doesn’t usually leave the South for its hires.

Name: Will Muschamp, Texas head coach designate

Age: 37

Background: Former LSU and Auburn defensive coordinator.

Why it makes sense: Along with having ties to Auburn, he’s young, energetic and fiery — one of the top rising stars in the coaching ranks.

Why it doesn’t: For all those reasons, the Longhorns locked him up as Mack Brown’s successor. Leaving an elite football school like Texas doesn’t make much sense.

  • I’m already defending Turner Gill…

    “Why it doesn’t: He has limited head coaching experience and no ties to the SEC, a major demerit for a school that doesn’t usually leave the South for its hires.”

    ok…

    Well, there are three current SEC coaches that had no experience in coaching within the SEC before they came into an SEC head coaching position. Any Guesses???

    1. Urban Meyer
    2. Nick Saban
    3. Les Miles

    These are ALSO the last three coaches in the SEC to bring home a National Title!! All within the past 5 years.

    Turner Gill for ’09 !!!!!

  • HELL YES! im 100% behind this guy. I really dont think auburn needs a homerun hire like other schools try to get. Screw going and trying to drop 5 mil on a NFL coach. So who do you go after?

    1) a guy that the recruits and parents will look up 2) a guy that will give saban, richt, meyer a run for their money in recruiting 3) Be a leader for the school, players, and fans while representing Auburn and its creed. So who has all these qualities?

    MISTA TURNER WAR-E-GILL …. TURNER GILL!!!!
