Today Texas announced Will Muschamp will be the successor to Mack Brown when he retires. I love this move, the guy is a heck of a coach and did not want to lose him this season to teams like Tennessee or Clemson.

Thats what stinks is you get a good coordinator and they leave to get a head coaching job. I wouldn't imagine Mack retiring in the next 3 years but I can only hope doubling Muschamp's salary and giving him the Texas job is enough to keep him for that long.

this is my belief. good choice by texas by the way. I think that coaches should either be promoted from within, or brought up as head coaches from other schools. let's say I was looking for someone to coach WVU. I don't want the offensive coordinator from NC state. I would rather have the successful head coach from toledo. I would want a coach that has enjoyed some sort of success as a head coach, or someone from within who knows the system. thoughts?

I would agree, it would seem a coordinator who becomes a head coach is going to have a learning curve. Much more if he leaves a school he was at, to go to another school. Like you said if he gets promoted to head coach at his school he still knows the system.

I like it when people agree with me. sports forums, much friendlier than political forums. I take urban meyer as an example. he was good head coach at bowling green and utah before becoming the coach at florida. I think he has done pretty well there. they sucked last year, but still.

This was a smart move by Texas. I'm a Clemson fan, and he was high on our list. His name was going to come up for any major job opening until Texas did this.

I hope Penn State follows Texas's method after Paterno hangs it up.
