Re: 2012 UC Football Official Thread
Next coach in.
Butch has done a nice job here and I'd prefer to see him stick around but at the end of the day I don't view him as irreplaceable. The never ending coaching carousel can be a bit tiresome but UC's athletic department has shown itself to be pretty good when it comes to hiring new football coaches and I trust they'll find somebody else to built on what Dantonio, Kelly and Jones have started here.
I was upset when BK left, partly because of how he handled leaving and partly because I think I realized UC would never find anyone as good to replace him, but at least leaving for Notre Dame made sense. I can't say that I feel the same way about Butch or the Colorado job but if they're offering the kind of money that has been indicated I can understand why he would be tempted. Ultimately I think it's a bad job, but between his salary and the inevitable buyout it may end up being a lucrative decision.
