But there is no comparison of those stepping stone jobs (that were at the whim of whoever was the itinerant head coach) and his position for Iowa State that is a destination job for him.
If I were his publicist, I would encourage him to talk about Iowa State as a "destination job," his "multifaceted and deep commitments," his interest in "building the program for the long term," how it is "a dream job," and how wonderful it would be to "retire here if given the opportunity."
In order to be honest, just say something like "but you never know in this business" and leave it at that. Don't bother to explain what "you never know" means. Leave that to the pundits.
