True if you’ve got a guy that’s done it at the college level and NFL like Monken
Lashlee has coached in National Championship games (Auburn) and so has Helfrich.
I don’t see Lashlee as being demonstrably better over Helfrich to justify the risk.
The UW would have to be enticing to Helfrich. He’s close to home, great recruiting base
Less stress than HC or NFL and the ability to build his resume of play calling.
I could be totally wrong. Helfrich could want to bail in 3 seasons but I like our chances of keeping him a while and nothing brings on “contract extension” talks like winning.
