Do you guys think this is Tubs final destination, or a stepping stone? Cause if he has a great season or two, you know his name will be a hot one in the coaching rumors.
I don't think it affects OSU that much to be honest. Most of the guys being mentioned as assistants for TT are heavy recruiters in the South. Maybe a player here or there that's not crucially important to OSU. I see the real impact in OH with second tier type B1G programs and someone like BC from the ACC. It might be harder to poach the guys OSU isn't going after.
As to whether or not it's his last destination, who knows? I hope his name is at the top of every coaching list across the country. That will mean he's maximized the opportunity at UC. If it can keep the program successful and boost donations to the athletic program, then what's not to like? That being said, I think he's older and I have hope this turns out like Solich at OU. Time will tell.
