FFF, what I said was the following scenario wouldn't appeal to me at all: "Playing under sanctions and being public enemy #1 at your alma mater."
I would go anywhere if I were allowed to call plays. But I wouldn't go to UM and I wouldn't leave my alma mater 2 weeks before NSD. Money and opportunity are VERY important, but so is integrity.
I don't know if Stoops was going to let him call plays, but if wants to call plays so much why the hell did he turn down the Kentucky job!?

It was a generic reply to "I never would"/ Try following the thread. Thanks.
No. Miami offers him a chance to live where he was born and raised. A place he loves and where his family lives. This pretty much being one of the biggest factors in the whole decision.

Everyone on this board assumes Coley is capable of calling plays. What if he's not?
Lucky for you, you're not a football coach. Apple's and oranges.
Man I understand your Loyalty but you do have to Understand that this is a Business at the end of the day, hey we have all seen players leave early for the NFL, also Coaches leave for raises, NFL gigs etc, but this man has a family he has to take care of and he's from Miami, I for one understand when you work in and environment that isn't favorable, Jimbo has had many of his Coaches to leave,maybe he's really controlling . I mean all Coaches pretty much want to be a Head Coach someday.
I think Coley wants too advance his Career and move on just like Mike Stoops and become a Head Coach, their are a lot of Coaces that are doing well and getting their chance right now. Coley just wants that opportunity, heck we lost Fisch and he was with us for 2 years,before that he was the WR Coach prior at Seattle now he heads back to Jacksonville as the OC and a big pay Raise, it's Called Business and you can't take it Personal.

My old high school needs a playcaller.
Why would you go to that place for the same money to call plays. Who cares? If you want to call plays that bad, go to a school that will let you that doesn't happen to also suck.
That's a reasonable post and I can upvote that.

Anyone is CAPABLE of calling plays. The question, will he be good at it? Why not. He knows Jimbo's offense, he prepares extensively throughout the week, he knows his personel. Besides, Coley can't be worse than Jimbo's vanilla play calling.
I don't blame Coley one bit.
You should always be looking to advance your career. If you aren't going to be given the opportunity where you are currently, look elsewhere.
EDIT: Just read Josh's post about Jimbo offering playcalling duties as well.
If he still bolts for Miami I will be at a loss.... I don't get it.

That's for damn sure
According to Josh, you're wrong. ... again
I would generally agree with this....but an FSU coach going to miami. There is just something not right about this and taking perhaps taking coveted recruits and the playbook with him. I'm really having a difficult time with this. But maybe that is just me.
Nope I wait until my job is done. And Coley isn't getting that kind of deal compared to what he currently has. Its call integrity, clearly you have NONE!

If he is going because he wants to be back in Dade County, nothing Jimbo does or nothing we offer will matter.
Great post. Gotta seize every opportunity that comes your way in that biz.
I think as this College Football continues to Change, we will see a lot of young Coaches take opportunities based on What is their, I for one can't blame Coley, its a business decision and he's from Miami.
When Coach Richt went to work for FSU, I wonder was their the same sentiment amongst the Noles fanbase to accept him since he came from a Rival, I remember how explosive FSU was, so I also don't remember too many Miami fans being pissed. I guess it was because of the fact we were winning a lot .
I still think this is a business decision and one he might want to make quick cause its your Life and you don't get too many opportunities and he would have a lot to work with too build his Resume and then move on.
