And Coley wanting to get away, don't you think he would have gone to Kentucky with Stoops? I dont believe this has anything to do with wanting to get away from Jimbo. Just my opinion.
Kentucky and Miami are not the same..
That would go to his point
I agree. But if Jimbo was "that bad" as some tend to think, I believe he would jump ship at any opportunity to be a true OC. Just a thought...
You missed his point. He had no way of knowing that Jedd Fisch was leaving Miami when the position at Kentucky was offered to him. If he is so adamant about leaving Fisher, the the stubborn jackass of college football, he would have accepted the UK offer and he didn't. This is a family move according to Josh and we have no reason to doubt him.
If he is moving for family whatever that means the he wouldn't have even considered the job at Kentucky. And like someone else mentioned, he's a div 1 football coach he ain't spending much time with his family not matter where he is. I think its hilarious when people throw out the "he did it for personal/family reasons" it's almost always BS, and anyone that believes it is gullible.
I don't think he was offered the OC job at kentucky.
The poster formerly known as 31-7. Understood by few, known by many, loved by all.
So you're calling Josh a liar?
When someone (Kentucky) offers you a raise and a promotion, you listen.
Getting back to famly might not be for him persay but for his wife who may welcome the support of family down in Miami. Being a coaches wife with kids can be pretty lonely and difficult at times and especially this time of year. Maybe she would like a break and get back close to family herself for some comfort and support. You just never know.
So, it's gullible to believe the reason why he is reportedly considering the job, but it's not gullible to believe the reason you just made up?
Coley was never offered the Kentucky job. Look at the resume for the guy who got the job he's a proven stud
Whether it was official or not, I don't know. But there are several reports/sources who say he was approached by Stoops, but later after thinking it over, turned it down.
I don't understand why anyone would suggest that all of the coaches left because of some mistreatment by, or dislike of, Jimbo. If that were the case, why would Eliot stay on as DC through the Orange Bowl. And Gran as RB coach. And Stoops offer to help game plan for NIU.
That sounds like coaches who like/respect Jimbo moving on for a better opportunity, not because they didn't like him. I'm sure there were disagreements at times, like there is with all coaching staffs. But leaving just to get away from Jimbo doesn't match with actions.
We now have 2 experienced oc's as asst coaches. That may have changed the calculus.
Also, KY wanted that guy they got from Texas Tech as OC. I wonder if he ever got a full fledged OC offer at KY because of that issue.

I miss the good ol' days when coaches' wives moved wherever their husbands were coaching. Families were uprooted all the time. Didn't you all see Friday Night Lights? If Coley's wife misses him she can move to Tallahassee. Cozy town, cheap rents, nice place to raise kids.
The Future is Now.
Wanting wife and kids to be close to their grandparents are not even factored into the equation?
Family has very much to do with this. D1 coaches work so much that moms are alone with the kids all the time. Grandparents ease the load.
Anyone that follows your logic isn't thinking clearly.
What? Do you even have a clue about this subject?
People concoct stories to support their agenda. It's quite sad.
