It is a challenge that some are wired for and if he failed, he's getting paid many times more to disappear than he would at Grambling. So, there is that.
What's harder? Healing an FCS/SWAC program after a team mutiny (and they don't have the facilities like an FBS or recruits like the Eddie Robinson days) or healing an FBS/SEC school from a possible aftermath of possible NCAA violations (where the expectations to 'beat Saban' are, some say, beyond huge)?

Third year 12-1! People will say, 'Grambling is FCS'. But Fobbs knows the deep south (Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia regions, etc!), and was on staff at Southern Miss. And as Paul Finebaum says, "Ole Miss [is considered] an acquired taste!" That means not many people want that job.....!
Grambling is 10-1. Damn good D, and back to back double-digit win seasons.....! Les Miles is not coming near Ole Miss!
