    In Sam Bakers defense both Van Gorder and Hatcher were good hires on paper. What BVG did as the defensive coordinator at UGA and then the short time in the NFL before he became our coach was impressive and only became a bad hire once we got to know him, his family and his approach etc. Hatcher was also an up and coming coach that was on the ga tech and Tennessee head coaching lists, he won a championship at valdosta and new ga for recruiting, again a very good hire. TS never even looked good on paper.

    Twenty five or thirty years after the War Between the States a fellow from New England moved down to a Hick town in Georgia. His efforts to bring his new neighbors out of the dark ages made some of the folks think of him as a" know it all". The town blacksmith disliked the gentleman so much that when he bent over to pick up a recently glowing horseshoe the blacksmith offered no warning. After a bunch of jumping up and down, hand waving and swearing the blacksmith smugly said "hot huh?". "Nah. Just doesn't take me that long to look at a horseshoe."

    to be fair, his family was actually very nice. He was just a huge douchecanoe

    I agree with BVG and Hatcher being good "on paper" hires, but Tyson's resume was very short and not very impressive.

    It was inexcusable.

    No one, anywhere could figure that hire out.

It is widely accepted that our salary— TK made roughly 275K— will be going up to at least 400K and maybe higher
    If we’re going after a P5 assistant, I’d sure love to poach someone from a successful football school in the Southeast. Clemson, Bama, LSU, Florida, Georgia etc. Someone that is familiar with the football first culture in this part of the country and has some familiarity with our history. But also has vision and connections that comes with working at a big school. Southern drawl isn’t necessary but working in this part of the country certainly would help.

    Definitely who we should be targeting.

    That sort of person would hopefully have established, beneficial relationships which would help with recruiting, marketing, etc.

    I would be thrilled to see someone from any of the schools you mention

    Hatcher wasn’t a good hire on paper.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    Would be great but probably can't afford it. For instance, I don't think Clemson had a single assistant coach that made under $300k....in 2018....and that's position coaches. Most or all got raises in 2019. For instance, just the friggin' TE coach's salary was over $500k in 2019. It's gotten insane.
