« on: January 31, 2021, 11:05:48 AM »
Willie Simmons is attempting to quiet rumors about a potential SEC job, but isn’t fully denying it, either.

FYI: Coaches, especially young ones, that show an ability to successfully coach a program back from obscurity not only once, but twice is seen as a turnaround specialist and is in demand. Those coaches get offers constantly. There are no NCAA violations against recruiting coaches that I'm aware of.

If isn't the position of head coach, or offensive coordinator. It would be a step down for Coach Simmons.

Not if the salary offerings are there. The position in question would offer a $100K raise in salary more than he's making now. But that's not enough for him to make the jump, I'm told.

How? A RB Coach in the SEC is a step down from the MEAC / SWAC Head Coaching job. lol. OK

Larry Johnson senior is a great example. He has been a running back coach at Penn and Ohio State for how long? But, why did he never become a head coach?  :tiptoe:

30+ plus years at the same position????

Are they hiring for his coaching skills, or for his recruiting game? The pay is nice. But, he is building something special down there in Tallahassee. So, if people are considering him for a P-5 job. It will be the same on next year.

You ever stop to consider that it's his choice to not to make the jump to HC? That he's happy doing just what he's doing??

Wiregrass has never heard of the Peter Principle.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
