the whole "recruiter who can't coach" HC hire is almost always a failure

Yes. And no one thought it would be any other way when he was hired.

That college football limits staffs in such a way that the recruiter won’t ever be the special teams coach means the successes there will be few and far between.

They don’t normally have enough football acumen, and they don’t normally have a role that involves them running some aspect of the team. So they’re both bad and I’ll prepared in most cases.

His off season schtick about him getting that job this off season was hilarious. Dude knocked out his wide receivers coach at New Mexico and did an interview wondering why he was 50 before getting a head gig again.

If you're gonna hire a dude who can't coach as your head coach, he better be able to hire great assistants and he better be organized and have clear vision. Mike Locksley is terrible.

2-26. Amazing that he landed a B10 job strictly because he’s good at recruiting DC metro.

6-41 in FBS as a head coach

That is

Remarkably impressive to keep being paid $2.5m/year still as a head coach

I mean holy frick that is bad

usually that's b/c they don't have the ability to do more than recruit and maybe coach an easy position (DL, RB, WR primarily)

O never got offered a DC role b/c he cannot mentally handle that role, not b/c of his recruiting

Durkin's exit being so abnormal helped him too. Locklsey was trash but they could sell him as reuniting the program.

It was so predictable that he would be a disaster at UMD.

Well that tells it all. You have to put the HC recruiter in great situations. They're not program builders. Put them at second or third tier programs and they'll be absolutely horrible.

I’ve spent a lot of time in Tuscaloosa. Locks was the only coach I ever saw slamming drinks by himself at the bar after games
