He had three 10 win seasons at North Carolina... not exactly a Football powerhouse...
They also have the advantage of having lots of in-state talent and the rest of the south as their backyard to recruit in.
I think there are two types of good college football coaches:
1. A coach that does more with less and coaches up his players. This guy plays to the strengths of his team and wins more games than many think he should. (Coach to the teams strengths sounds like some coaches we have heard about lately (crosses fingers.))
2. A coach that knows how to coach superior talent. Pete Carrol, Mack Brown... It actually does take some skill to get a bunch of big star recruits, who have had everything handed to them up until college, work to be a good football team. There are examples of coaches who have had more talent than their competitors and still vastly underachieved (see Miami football the past few years - the talent is down a bit, but still better than a lot of teams).
