None with high career aspirations

I love Ruff but we will never know whether he would have stayed or left because he was never successful enough to be offered. He loved ECU and it probably was his destination job based on where he was going to finish every year but we will never, ever, ever know what he would have done if he had 1 Top 10 finish or 2 Top 10 finishes and was offered guaranteed $30+ million contract from a P5. As I have said a hundred times on this board you also have to calculate him not taking that offer that he is also turning down pay raises that would double his assistants salary at a P5. I can promise you we are not the destination job of any OC, DC or position coach unless they have been coaching 20+ years and just want to settle down in Greenville and ride into retirement.
