AAC is proven point hiring hot OC mostly maybe a little DC

for Head Coach works. It is also a proven point you can crap the bed on picking a hot DC or OC instead of a experienced Head Coach as ECU did with the disastrous hiring of John Thompson and Scottie Montgomery. Hell on paper John Thompson looked way better than Mo but neither one worked out .

It has probably forever poisoned our fan base on picking a up and coming Coordinator. Damn shame most of the AAC schools were attractive enough to snag a great Coordinator but ECU failed. I hope Coach Houston works out and even if he does do great things and gets poached I am terrified of what can happen on picking the next coach. Quite frankly our track record sucks. Holtz was probably the last logical solid choice and even on that go around we got rejected . When Holtz left town that was a nightmare as Holland was turned down by even Rick Stockstill and we had to completely roll the dice on hiring Ruff cough cough a Coordinator with no Head Coach experience outside of one Bowl game and he brought lighting in a bottle in the form of a 26 year old OC Lincoln Riley. That was a combination of sheer luck and fortune with Lincoln Riley using ECU as his classroom before graduating to Oklahoma. When dumb ass Compher fired Ruff he had no earthly idea who he was going to hire which right off the bat is a terrible plan. He whiffed on offers to bigger names based on budget and as AD he should be fully aware of the budget he is working with and have a short list of candidates. The fact he settled on Mo who was not on any radar shows what a failed search that was. ECU Head Coach searches tend to be humbling experiences for ECU. Our fans have champagne taste and our AD is on a beer budget.
