What do you all think of Mark Helfrich? I do not have any data in front of me on him, but I tend to think he was just a bad head coach/administrator of a program (and being a Oregon guy, lots of doogs will say NO)… Would like to see more data if anyone has good stuff on him, especially college.
My from the hip reaction: Was part of the most revolutionary offensive systems of this era. Led a team to a NC game, but how much was that him and not just what was already put in place? Not a dynamic personality or someone I think inspires excitement among players or fans.
Overall, would be fairly disappointed with this hire, probably not the worst we could do, as he has a lot of college and some valuable HC experience. He could potentially be helpful to Jimmy who is learning the ropes as a HC, but I feel like having Pete around the program and Coach K on staff already covers that.
