In the interview, Gundy is wanting to have a DC who will stick it out and not jump when offered a higher paying job. Who is in the NFL that is still playing in the playoffs that he may have interest in hiring?
Hmm, not too many A+ coaches are going to take that restriction.
Gonna have to go C- to get someone to take that limitation.

Are you sure this is a quote from Gundy or just your interpretation ?

With slow, it might have been a vision from mars.

I think he will bring in an NFL coach still in the playoffs. Mike McCarthy may be fired tomorrow and Kellen Moore then offered the HC job. Probably new defensive coordinator and defense staff will be hired as Dallas had a bad Defense.

To keep the defense strong moving forward to get to the playoffs a home run is needed. We should be able to afford or pay the new DC what they offered Knowles to stay 1.7 million.
I think you’re right about the NFL thing. And I was really hoping he’d go that direction.

You’re way off base on Dallas though, on multiple levels.

I don't know much about this guy, what did he do?
From a former player directly, and then through others who talked to other players, Graham doesn't care about his players, their health, how they do in school, how they grow as young men, treats them like crap, etc. When he left TU he text the players goodbye from Pitt. He never told them in person he was leaving.

He did the same thing when he left Pitt for Arizona State after 1 year. His sole goal was to climb the coaching ranks and used his players to do it.

Now stories coming out of Hawai'i pretty much confirm he's a bigoted SOB.

WOW...I kinda remember the tulsa situation now that you mention it. Sounds like a low class individual. Definitely doesn't/wouldn't fit in with the " Cowboy Culture ". Appreciate the info!

It's easy after the 21-22 season to hold HCMG in high(er) esteem. But the 11-2 season is owed to Knowle's defense. As @ESPN_billC said, OSU won plenty of games, "ugly". Defense isn't pretty, but it gets the job done. Gundy can't stand to hire personalities with talent. So he sticks with people he can micromanage i.e., Dunn at OC. So expect another no name DC choice combined with our current OC and HC to produce ground breaking mediocrity in 2022.

This is such a loser mentality and one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard.
Wouldn't expect that comment from many on here, but you are certainly one of them. Any chance to rag on Gundy.

I suspect Gundy either cut him or fired him at some point in the past.

I don’t hate Gundy but I’m also not bound by blind loyalty to ignore when he makes dumb decisions. Of course I want him to be successful but if he’s gonna get paid what he does then he’s open to criticism and I’ll be darned if some old fogeys with their head so far up his rear they can tell you if is colon is orange, are gonna tell me otherwise.

So the Raiders and the Patriots lost today. Probably by Monday they will be firing coaches. After getting killed Patriots will probably fire all their assistant coaches and Raiders probably will let’s all their coaches go when they hire Jim Harbaugh!

You want him to be successful? Hasn’t he been successful?

Gumby and Rack, are you aware of the concept of diminishment? You do, in all your bloviation, realize that as other candidates are hired by other schools, the number of qualified candidates lessens? I really do not understand why you two aren't banned. You are, without a doubt, the two most infuriating posters on this board.
Bloviation is my new word of the day. Much thanks!

Gundy has taken us to heights that have been unattainable, previously. That said, do you not see many instances that have cost us dearly? Prevented further ascension? He isn’t perfect but there are about 3 of you that act as if he is and that ANY disagreement with that fact means that the person who disagrees isn’t a “real fan,” or is a “sooner fan.” The fact is that he makes MILLIONS and is a state employee. That makes him open to criticism and if you think he Isn’t, well....

But dumb decisions? What are they and why do you care?
