1  University Rooms / Folsom Field / Re: Mel Tucker is the new coach

My only concern is he hasn't been a head coach, save for an interim experience in 2011 for the NFL Jaguars going 2-3. That's not a lot. See VJ as to why this matters.
 
I did like his demeanor though. He wasn't all "rah rah" but very stoic, for lack of a better term.
 
I watched the video of him touring the facilities while waiting for the show today, and that was my first look at all that. Wow. I didn't know they had built all that, and all that, and well, all that. Anyone know who the other gentlemen that was with him, and fairly close to him (physically), talking to him but never on the audio? Rick George was talking half the time but it was someone else. It seemed a little odd to me is all and I don't recognize him.
 
Regardless, 6 wins next year is a prayer. I'm always down on a team with a new head coach. But a 5 year contract to get "his" players in and develop seems standard, but best we could hope is 3 seasons from now, 2021, is when we see what he can do with "his" players and if all the smoke today matters.

Yup, old news but nobody else posted.  Our last DC we hired to be HC was pretty successful, I hope it happens again.  Tucker does seem to check all the boxes.

All indications point to the next coach will be Georgia defensive coordinator Mel Tucker.  Thoughts?

He doesn't have "big time" college football (coaching) experience in the last 15 years.

This year was a total kick in the nuts. †i don't know how to better describe it.
 
I don't think I have ever seen a team have such an epic collapse. †I am still shocked we are not in a bowl game after going 5-0 to start the season.
 
I don't like the way MM handled his last press conferences either. †It definitely changed my perception about him a bit. †I think if he looks back on his 6 years with any level of objectivity he should see he did not get the job done and was given plenty of time to do so. †Did he improve the program, no question yes, but that was half the job.  
 
He could not get over the hump and this year showed that 2016 was the exception not the rule.
 
Of the names I am hearing I like Holgorsen the best. †
 
One name i wish would get some attention is Skip Holtz. † I know everyone I talk to thinks I am crazy, but look at his career in total. †
 
Overall      133Ė104
Bowls      6Ė3
 
He wins more than he loses and he wins bowl games. †Outside of his short time at USF he has been over .500 everywhere he has been. †
 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skip_Holtz
 
I have always been surprised he hasn't been given a chance at a bigger gig. †I know going for a non-P5 coach is against what most fans are looking for, but this is not a non-P5 coach who has only won for a few years. †This is a coach who has been a HC for 19 years and won close to 60% of the time in those 19 years, and should have the connections to put together a very good staff.

I canít wait to see who we bring in. I think weíre ready to take the next big step to being consistent winners. There are a lot of good candidates out there but Iím not sure who I want to take over. I like Ryan Day, the OC for Ohio State. I think he could do wonders with our playmakers.

Cal is terrible, no doubt the Buffs would have won if they could have cut the mistakes just in half.  At least the Buffs finished with a better record that either the Rams or the Huskers.  One must find solace where one can.  I hope we finally hire a coach that can recruit and win.

Montez just looks pissed and is not playing well because of it.  Sad, this team should have been so much more this season.
