LMAO why is the Donovan hire a negative when the guy hasn’t even called a single game yet? Was Oregon hiring nobody Chip Kelly from New Hampshire a “debacle”? Why couldn’t they get anybody better than that? Maybe because the right hire isn’t always a name everybody is familiar with before the guy gets hired.
Massive difference. Chip was an unknown but an up and comer. Donovan is a retread who flamed out at the last OC gig he had and has been buried in a dead end role with a terrible franchise over the last four years. There’s no way to sugarcoat it, on paper this was an awful hire.
Bingo. For every one Chip Kelly there are 500 “unconventional, out of the box, forward thinking” guys who don’t work out who are career position coaches for a reason.
