It depends. Every coach has different things he values. Va. Tech and FSU were fortunate to have a coach who found what he wanted and were able to ramp up to big program status at the right time.
The revolving door doesn't seem to continually spin out good coaches in football, so UC is in a precarious position. But maybe Jones is all that, and he decides to stick.
Maybe not and they play the carousel again. But my point is every time they have to be right. One bad coach can really send the program back to obscurity.
