We as a fanbase need to take a step back and breathe. Yes, right now our search does indeed look like a dumpster fire, but it doesn't have to end this way. Consider some history. In 2007, a certain program away south fired their struggling coach with a great last name. They began a coaching search that included getting rebuffed by Jim Grobe (of Wake Forest). However, on January 1st a fellow by the name of Nick Saban came along, and that seemed to turn out pretty well. Let's move to more recent history. Arkansas let Petrino go and began a coaching search in April (the tenure of John L. Smith was certainly not a real thing). They threw offers at Gary Patterson of TCU, Mike Gundy of OSU, Les Miles of LSU, Charlie Strong and probably several area football coaches. Instead, they pull Bret Bielema from Wisconsin. This is the same coach who has taken the Badgers to 3 Rose Bowls (mind you, this years comes with a huge asterisk) and has a career record of 68-24. Not too shabby. So, I believe we can just stop for a moment, let AD Hart take a look at the landscape and take his time. We know what happened last time our AD got paniced and made a hire at the last minute.
