Never been in the same job for more than 3 years.  Had success in the NFL in Cleveland but bombed in Chicago.  Was at Georgia from 2016-18, spent time at Ohio State in the mid-2000’s.  Doubled his salary.  The disparity between the haves and have nots in college football is growing quite large

It’s bad.  I’ll be curious who Colorado gets to take the job.  I know the popular call is Eric Bieniemy but I’d be shocked if he took it.  If I’m a Colorado fan or alum, I’d be seriously questioning the decision to leave the Big 12.

Very poor management. Larry Scott is an elitist idiot who moved the offices to San Francisco and the Transamerica tower, paying ridiculous rent, and has TV deal that provides significantly less revenue than the Big Ten and SEC.  Saw this article in Twitter this morning:

https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/2020/02/canzano-mel-tucker-leaving-colorado-proves-pac-12-is-ripe-for-the-poaching-and-its-just-beginning.html

Oh, and Mario Cristobal, David Shaw and Kyle Whittingham are easily the best coaches in the league.

What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

As a coach, Herm is a great motivational speaker. Coaching? Eh.

Cristobal is a really underrated coach. Happy to see him get a chance and succeed at Oregon. What he did at FIU was remarkable and it was insane that not only did he not get more looks higher up, they tossed him aside after 1 bad season.

CU is in a weird position. Pretty fertile recruiting area, great tradition, tons to sell recruits, they just keep missing on hires. I think this is honestly a blessing for them, cause I don’t think Mel Tucker is all that impressive as a coach. They don’t get Bieniemy cause he’s waiting for the NFL HC job. I saw Bryan Harsin, but that’s dumb, he won’t leave Boise St for a mid level P5 job. I think they should look hard at Jim McElwain and Blake Anderson. Troy Calhoun would be interesting but I don’t think the triple option will ever be truly successful at the top levels

Herm Edwards best Pac 12 coach? WTF?
Kyle Whittingham is the best coach in the Pac 12, and I'm not sure it's close.
David Shaw is next.


Also, Mel Tucker might want to delete this this tweet any time now:

I didn't say Edwards WAS the best coach.  I said he MIGHT BE the best coach.

When Whittingham wins something of significance, or Christobal proves it for more than one year, it will be an easy choice.  And I had forgot about Shaw.  Yes, I would put him in the spot for now.

Whittingham did complete a 13-0 season with a thrashing of very good Alabama team in the Sugar Bowl not too long ago. They ended that season ranked #2.
That seems significant.

Eh.  Mountain West Conference.  Until last year, he's been good but not great in the Pac 12.

Why?  Rarely does a coach leaving for another job, even after he said he was staying, have any repercussions.

Mountain West featured two top 10 teams that year (TCU was the other). And the Alabama team Utah thumped had only one other loss that season, to eventual national champion Florida in the SEC Championship game.
Anyhow, I think an undefeated season, #2 ranking and beating Bama by two TDs in a Sugar Bowl is "significant."
You do not.
Fair enough.

No you are correct.  It is significant.  I guess I'm just thinking he hasn't done all that much in the Pac 12.

Significant would have been beating Oregon to win the Pac-12.
