Wow, must be nice. So much for Chizik going back...=)
I wonder how long Mack Brown will stay at Texas.....
looks like we dont havta worry about him taking another job this winter .... i say very good hire ... but what do they do with applewhite ...
So if Chizik waited two more years to accept a head coaching gig, would that be him in the headline instead of Muschamp?
I wonder is Muschamp is willing to play second fiddle for 3 or 4 more years? I didn't picture Mack hanging it up anytime soon, but maybe there is something more to this than we know!
Muschamp has been there less than a year.
It sounds like it could be one of two situations:
1 - This was part of the original agreement when Muschamp took the job, and it is only being announced publicly now.
or (more likely, imo)...
2 - Muschamp received a very good HC offer from Tennessee or Clemson, and with all the DC turnover Texas has had lately, they needed to convince Muschamp to stick around.
EDIT: I just noticed that this was was my 1000th post. Yay, me.
Mack is 57 right now, hard to think that he wouldn't be around 4-5 more years, but then again . . .
DeLoss Dodds isn't a spring chicken anymore (I think he's about 70). Mack Brown to UT AD soon, and Muschamp to UT FB head coach.
Muschamp has put together a great defense in his short tenure but in my completely outsider and probably underinformed opinion, this call seems a bit premature to me.
The dudes a bad*** for sure, but I would want to see at least a couple years of continued success before naming him the next coach of Texas.
and just so all the Tejans out there know....Alaska is bigger than Texas.
This is a mich bigger slight to Major Applewhite than it is Chizik... They had to lock up Muschamp because he is the hot name, but Applewhite WILL be a better headcoach someday...
