Re: 2012 College Coaching Carousel
That's tough metric though AH. Most coaching hires fail. I don't think coaches who come from mid major schools are more prone to failure than any other type of hire.
Any coach who makes it as a head coach at even the worst mid major school has beaten the odds to get that far. So if you're at a mid major school and being offered a top level job, there's no reason to think you'll be Todd Lickliter.
I do think it makes sense for a mid level coach to gauge how serious the top level program is in terms of resources anadministration support is going to be. John Groce can compete in the MAC with a mid level budget, but I don't think he can compete in the B1G with a mid level budget. In fact, if they aren't going to commit to a 1st level committment, it doesn't matter who is coaching. (See Minnesota)
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
