I keep up with Sunbelt watching Georgia Southern games

They are just up the road from Hilton Head in Statesboro and that is also where Tormenta has their professional Soccer Team and my son did the travel soccer thing with Tormenta for 3 years so I ended up in Statesboro a lot and watched Georgia Southern Games. I will say Napier looks great on paper. Nick Saban thought enough of him to hire him twice first as an analyst and then as QB coach. He worked with Dabo when he took over Clemson and was OC at Clemson. He and another Saban Coach McElwain went to Colorado St together but that stop did not exactly work out.
He has been around some great coaches so had plenty of time to absorb how to coach and learn X's and O's from some greats. That does not always translate into being a great Head Coach but since his first year at 7-7 he is 26-5 with two Bowl wins.
If they win the Sunbelt again this year I am sure his name will come up on some coaching vacancies . If I could swap him out for Houston right now I would . He played QB in college and is an offensive minded guy. He has two Co-Offensive Coordinators but pretty much runs the show.

  Agree. Coaches consider G5 to G5 a lateral move. ** -- purplemind 10/13/2021 11:39AM
