Is it worth it? More money. We matched the offer. Play calling duties? That's swell, but after a year or two as FSU's QB coach he'll have offers elsewhere, either as a "real" OC or as a HC.
Playing under sanctions and being public enemy #1 at your alma mater? I don't know. I wouldn't do it, but who the hell am I?
The Future is Now.
I agree. This would be one pu$$y a$$ move on his part...
I'd say F Jimbo and leave if I'm Coley. Won't let me call plays........well, bye.
Who cares. If he goes, he goes. He's done a good job in his time here. Good luck to him.
I don't understand those of you who would be upset if Coley left for a pay raise AND full control of his title...something he does not have here. The timing is not the best but he was just offered the job...timing was not his choosing. FSU can fire a coach at any time and a coach can leave at any time...this is not a loyalty issue, it is a career decision. For the record...I think he would be better off taking the raise from us ....assuming he does not get the play calling duties and wait one more year for a better option. But Coley has to make the best decision for he and his family.
Very well said.
I don't fault coaches that come and go. It is a business where loyalty isn't a real thing and you should make moves when the move presents itself.

I just can't see him leaving for Miami.
That's fine. He has to do what he has to do. However, he will burn every single conceivable bridge that there is in Tallahassee.
At the same time, I wish Jimbo would just get over himself. If Coley's good enough to call plays, let him call plays. Now. If not, why did he hire him in the first place? Why did he hire an OC that would NEVER be given the opportunity to call plays!?
Personally, I disagree. I can't imagine leaving my employer a day before a large presentation I've been working on for months......and then show up at the clients office with one of our largest competitors to try and steal the account.
Really? Not even for triple pay, a waterfront office, a personal secretary and 3 months off a year. Everyone has a price.
That is VERY good analogy. I couldn't imagine doing that either. +1
I agree with this.
And while I see exactly where bear is coming from, lets not pretend like Miami is offering something amazing. The only advantage Miami gives him is the ability to call plays. FSU can pay him just as much if not even more, we have better players for him to work with, and the future here is brighter than it is at Miami. If being able to call your own plays is all you really want, then you will get it and you should take it, but you shouldn't take it at the last second so we have no shot to react to it, especially when FSU has done nothing but help you and your career (and you went to school here).
Sorry, I get there is very little loyalty, but he is not even leaving us for anything worth a damn, and he is doing it last second. And if there is 1 person who should be loyal, it should be Coley to Jimbo.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
I think it's easy to get caught up in a coach working for the school and representing the university and believing that he is a fan and loyal to the school. Thinking of Mickey and Bobby where coaches put down roots. The good ole days. Not that way anymore

He's an FSU alum as well.
Except that's nothing similar to what Coley is being offered. Assuming we matched the offer and Cristobal is running the offense in Coral Gables then I don't know why he would even entertain it. I'm sorry but I get the whole this is a career move, not personal...but it's bullshit in this scenario for me. Being a FSU alum, it would take a HC gig to take me away from my alma mater to Miami, our 2nd biggest rival. And if this were any other coach I wouldn't be nearly as upset. But Coley is a Seminole and that means something in a situation like this IMO. It will sting if he makes that move and not just because of recruiting. It's mainly about where he would be going for the same title....and still has to deal with Cristobal and possibly looming sanctions at the school. I don't get it. It doesn't sound like a big incentive.

napoleon -- you a lying bastard if you saying that if you were in his shoes and remain a OC in name only under Jumbo.
Give me the reigns or go - yourself. That's Jimbo's options. If someone was holding back your career, you'd tell them the same exact thing.
He's not choosing to leave us, he'd stay if we promoted him... WE ARE CHOOSING TO NOT PROMOTE HIM

IF he ends up at Miami, the only person FSU fans should be upset with is Jimbo.
I used to work for FSU, I left for more money and to further my career. I won't blame Coley for doing the same. I will blame Fisher for being too egotistical to give up control. I've seen bosses like that in the past (thankfully they weren't my boss) and they can't hold onto talented employees.
Not trying to be your mother, but please watch that level of language.
If UM was offering Coley Golden's job, your analogy would work.
