“ They have hesitations? MAKE them see why they need to come here. Do what needs to be done short of major felonies.”
How old are you? Are you married? Do you have a family or kids? Do you think these decisions are made in a vacuum?
A lot of football coaches are absolute mercenaries and psychos… but not all.
GA played at Boise, started his coaching career under Harsin and CP/Lake and Choate at Montana State. Now he is at Cal with Wilcox (more Boise + Oregon)… GA’s resume tells me that he is a certain type of cat and likely values different things then most coaches.
Also, can we stop propping up Seattle as a reason for people to coach here? They live on the Eastside typically and are at the office all hours of the day. They probably can’t even name half the neighborhoods in town.
