The theory being that coaches need to recruit players to fit their system

That being said if you have a coach that is successful AKA Lincoln Reilly they will get poached to a better program. If one looks at Appy, Memphis, UCF, Cincy and Temple to some point, these programs have lost their coach and continue to win. They are all far more successful in making use of the transfer portal then we have been to plug holes quickly.

ECU needs a Steve Logan, Larry Fedora, or Mike Leach type of coach who will stick their middle finger to the powers that be and try to win the unconventional way. My point being a coach who is not afraid to lose but actually win the game. Who sitting in the stands thought Houston and most importantly our OC was going to dial up plays to win that game this past Saturday? We played well enough for the nice try moral victory. Who cares about that. The goal is to win the game and when you have inferior talent you must do what you can to level that playing field. We ran a gadget play, it worked. The offense for the rest of the game was an uninspired disaster. I'm well aware Mike Leach would have never come here. I referring to his brash style of play. We need a winner not a bunch of clowns who are afraid to lose.
