The more I read about C.Strong the more I like him--and he was my top choice at the beginning!
Head Coach experience notwithstanding, Tennessee needs to be the school that gives the next Charlie Strong his first chance.
Given the challenges to success at UT today (having to recruit nationwide, facing the NCAA's best teams regularly, and a fan-base that will be financially hit hard in the coming economy) we'll HAVE to land a coach who is INCREDIBLY HUNGRY for success, and willing to work like heck-and-a-half to be better than the rest.
I'm not convinced you can find the kind of commitment this program requires in a coach who has already "proven himself" as a head coach. We either have to find a head coach with Fulmer's fierce loyalty to Tennessee, or be the one who gives that first chance to the next Charlie Strong.
The demands of this job, and the odds against success in it, are too daunting to attract any other kinds.
