I think it's inevitable that some if not most of our coaches leave for other opportunities in the next few years. How will this affect us in recruiting for the future and how exactly does the coaching staff spin this to recruits?
you are up front with it. being honest is the best policy. then if something happens its not a stomach punch to the recruit and you have a chance with your other coaches to step in.
Not as badly as you think and for a variety of reasons.
Jimbo has show an aptitude for finding great assistants. Assistants are replaceable.
Also we don't know the ambitions of all of these guys. Take Odell. The guy is a Nole through and through and seems content with his post. Its not impossible that some of these coaches like where they work.
Also there is more evidence of players committing to schools/programs. Kent Taylor is a good example. He said over and over again how badly he wanted to play for Charlie Weis. Weis bailed but Taylor stayed committed. Of course there are plenty examples of the opposite happening. But assistants finding other opportunities is the nature of the biz.
Same way it effects everyone else. 1 or 2 recruits might change their mind, but most kids commit to the school and not the position coach.
What rms said.
For example, Stoops staying/going was supposed to decide the destination of Tracy Howard.
For those who think the threat of Stoops leaving influenced Howard, if it did, he really should not have signed anywhere, even UM.
In this day and age of hire em'/fire em'...............it's leass than 50/50 that the UM DB coach will be there in 3-4 years.
