re: Success of Coaches With a Second Chance After Being Fired at a Previous Spot - Tiger Phil
Gene Stallings. 27-45-1 at Texas A&M from 1965 to 1971. The Aggies did win the SWC and the Cotton Bowl in the 1967 season. Every other season was a losing record. 19 years later, took over at Alabama in 1990. We know the rest....

There are 2 basic parts to being HC - We know nothing of 1 of the 2 - Tiger Phil
Coach O is doing a very good (not great) job of the 1 of the 2: Winning games with the talent on board. This is where Miles came up short later in his tenure. The second part of the job is assembling the talent as a Head Coach. We know have no evidence of success in this regard for Coach O as ...

re: the win/loss history of interim coaches in CFB - Tiger Phil
A couple of posters asked for interim to permanent HC successes. If we consider top 25 or so programs, which means Purdue and Vanderbilt don't count, and neither does Georgia Tech, then the only two interim coaches which have been hired full time in the past 25 years were successful. Dabo Sw...

re: Comparing Orgeron to Dabo Swinney (A Bit Long) - Tiger Phil
It's never really failed. In the past 25 years at the top 23 or so programs, the only two times a long-time interim has been hired are Fulmer at Tennessee and Swinney at Clemson. All the other schools (only 6) have chosen to go with someone else. But not one single one of the 6 went undefea...

re: Comparing Orgeron to Dabo Swinney (A Bit Long) - Tiger Phil
It's a surprisingly small sample set. Here is what I came up with: I considered the top 23 programs of the last 20 years. I found 9 cases of interim coaches that coached more than just a bowl game or the final game of the year. There were two successes in that group: Phil Fulmer took over fro...

re: Who would have to say "no" to LSU before you considered O? - Tiger Phil
In the scenario where he loses 2 games the rest of the way, he should not be offered the job under any circumstances whatsoever. In the scenario where he loses only to Alabama, I feel the same way....

re: HC "lets his OC/DC coach" is a BAD THING - Tiger Phil
[quote] How does O not having any experience as a DC have anything to do with this?[/quote] It's not that he doesn't have experience. It's the postulation by others that he will let his Coordinators coach. If, in fact, he is not qualified - not inexperienced, but not qualified - then he cannot b...

re: HC "lets his OC/DC coach" is a BAD THING - Tiger Phil
I did a bit of research into interim coaches... I considered the top 23 programs of the last 20 years. I found 9 cases of interim coaches that coached more than just a bowl game or the final game of the year. There were two successes in that group: Phil Fulmer took over from Johnny Majors at...

[quote][quote] how can he be in charge of either coordinator? Because he's the guy that hired them, and he can make them unemployed in a second.[/quote][/quote] Missing the point. Firing someone is not the best solution. The best solution is to raise their level of performance through super...

re: HC "lets his OC/DC coach" is a BAD THING - Tiger Phil
[quote]Point being, how do we know Orgeron isn't just pretty knowledgeable at football in general rather than just being some ace at one side of the ball? Would you be more comfortable with Kiffin as HC? Gene Chizik? Context is everything. If Orgeron can identify good coordinators, run the program o...

[quote][quote] The 1 is Dabo Swinney Even if he did come here, he'd leave for Bama once Saban retires. Then we do this whole thing over again.[/quote][\quote] My point was not to go after Dabo. My point was that he is the only coach I can think of that has had success at the same place aft...
