That could be true as well but if you notice.....


in all of our past coaching searches when has a "big name, established coach" ever expressed interest? We couldn't even get Stockstill to come before we hired Ruff.
I am certain not many of our fans recognize the fact the ECU job just isn't the most attractive one out there. We need a coach that will build a solid foundation that we can use for the future. As much as people dislike Compher and Mo they are placing academics in the forefront and trying to build a program that has lower attrition and will be more consistent year in and year out.

Recruiting "projects" may work out for a year or two but then it leaves as many gaps as recruiting JUCOs in the long run. I see some young players right now that are playing hard and we will have another class of them next year and another the year after. Once he gets rid of the problem kids we will see a different product on the field. I am hoping to see a smart, gutsy team that plays hard like Duke or Navy. I see that quality in the players he has brought on board so far.
