If he's 6-6

This guy gets coach of the year consideration.

There are so many holes on this team, it looks like swiss cheese. How many years has it been since we have even been close to a 60/40 run/pass balance? How many years has it been since we have not had 3+ games in which we have given up 40+ points?

Look for slight improvement year 1. Dramatic improvement year 2. Leveling off year 3. Another spike up year 4. Much depends on QB play and line development so that is subject to change. If this script is followed, look for suitors to start luring this coach away after about year 3. That's where a proactive AD comes in to play and starts earning his money. He has candidates already lined up and ID'd.

In today's operating environment, the AD is probably the most important job at a place like ECU (with its lead sport being football). You have to be resigned to the fact that a successful head coach will leave and it's up to you to provide continuity. Different then from years past.
