Should be, but the types of coaches you're looking at for a school like Ohio are all completely unproven and almost entirely guesswork. You're stuck trying to figure out what type of leader they would be based on a body of work that usually includes nothing beyond assistant work.
It's a total crap chute. I went to a mid-major school that had a successful coach poached away. We whiffed on the follow-up hire (and the follow-up hire to THAT hire), and the program was set so far back that it still really hasn't recovered.
