First off I’m not a Gus fan. After reading the hot seat article today I started wondering about him as a potential candidate.
Q1). Would he be interested if he’s out of a job?
Q2). Would he be interested if he’s still at Auburn?
Q3). Would the true inside influencers support him?
Q4). Would Razorback Nation support him?
Q5). How would the High School coaches and players respond?
First of all I hope CBB finishes the season with a bang and make all of this firing talk moot. But if he leaves we need a young “up and comer” to take the helm. Gus is not that man (see the above posts for reasons). Last night me and my brother discussed this topic. We agree on the “up and comer” replacement. It’s a gamble at best but at this point what do we have to lose? I like the UAB dude personally.
Recruiting is the first priority. It has to improve.
I do not want Gus Malzahn. I can’t imagine a more divisive hire. Almost all coaches alienate a portion of the fanbase after 3-4 years. Gus would start with a huge portion off the bandwagon. Me included.
