The sooner we stop letting them get played and stop putting up with the incompetence on full display today the sooner we will get this thing fixed. Hunter “Morris’d” the coaching search and it was on display on the national stage today.
This AD should have had a list in hand before he ever fired Morris. You do not fire a coach and not know who you want to go after. All this crap about vetting everyone and then interviewing everyone is likely his way of protecting himself. There are no secrets anymore with today’s social media and hiring a research firm to google background information is simply a waste of time. Then to follow that up with airplane rides around the country when you could video conference call anyone seems unnecessary. What in the world could be found out about Lane Kiffin that was not already know by simply searching the internet?
If HY does not have a feel for coaching fits before the vetting process and the airplane rides then he is not the right person for this job. If he spent three weeks to recommend Lane Kiffin to a Board and did not know that they might balk then he does not know his Board and that is just being a bad administrator.
This should not be that complicated. Suck it up and make the decision.
