Hope that is true!! Would be beyond a below average hire!!!
Chris and/or Josh, what are your thoughts on Larry Scott?
Do you believe Jimbo had legit interest in Scott for one of our coaching vacancies?
I want to know where the "hype" for this guy came from. What has he done on the field to deserve so much praise? Seems like his hype has simply come from his Miami ties in recruiting. That's the only reason people wanted him.
Like Pruitt I guess?
Except the guy has experience and success at the position we are hiring him for? Plus he is the person that secured USF OVs from Kirkland, S Coley, and other super good targets?
Meaning he is a good position coach and a ace recruiter for a area we need to get a recruiter on?
Yes below average my ass.
Please tell me who could possible be a better hire. What would be "average" or a "special" hire?

You really need to drop your Miami account.
The poster formerly known as 31-7. Understood by few, known by many, loved by all.
I upvoted this, for your feel goodedness.
But to answer your question I think Jujuan Seider would be a "better" hire.
Other than that, gotta go with fsufsu. Jimbo got his ass kicked on this one as far as assistant hires.
Good get for Miami.
Just another FSU meltdown thread
Lol and which targets were seriously considering them? Keith Bryant took and official to FIU. Was he even considering them? No. Like i said before i wouldnt touch anyone that was on skip holtz staff. Their on field product has been awful. Despite him getting OVs from prospects they had zero shot with who did he recruit that FSU or uf would rather have had?
I have (banned)
Please tell me how this guy is a below average hire?
How does one get his "ass kicked" when he may not have even been a serious target?
I don't get this line of thinking. As stated above, this is just another thread for Fisher's detractors to complain in.
I didn't say he was. But please explain to me why he isn't. His hype comes from his "Miami connections". Nothing more, nothing less.
Lol don't be delusional.
Getting a person on campus is the MOST important step in recruiting. Especially for a Official Visit.
I guess Ole Miss with their 14 consecutive losses to SEC teams really impressed kids like Golson and Tunsil.
They definitely had zero shots at them by your logic.
USF has been decent in the past but this guy was able to get ELITE talent to visit them just because of his ability to create relationships.
Im right there with you Kum. I dont think he was ever a serious candidate at FSU. I also dont get why people think this is a good hire.
Did USF get any of these recruits you speak of?
Miami area recruits will visit Miami regardless of who the coach is. Recruiting is about signatures, not visits. Ole Miss proved that. USF and Miami did not.
A member of USF's original recruiting class in February 1996, Larry Scott returned to USF in 2005 as director of high school operations, before first moving into coaching as a graduate assistant in 2006 and later as the tight ends coach, a position he accepted on Jan. 23, 2007.
Scott coached the tight ends in 2008 before switching to the offensive line in 2009. Scott returned to the tight ends in his sixth year with the program in 2010 and took over as running backs coach in 2012.
In his return to the tight end position, Scott and his group helped USF to its fifth-straight eight-win season, making it one of only 15 programs nationally and one of just 10 in BCS leagues that had accomplished the feat.
The offense saw tremendous improvement in 2011 as USF improved its national ranking in total offense 75 spots from 2010 to 2011, the largest jump of any school in the country. The most dramatic improvement came in the passing game, where USF improved by 85 yards per game. Only two teams saw a greater jump in the passing offense national rankings, as the Bulls improved 59 spots. In addition, the Bulls finished first in the BIG EAST in rushing and sacks allowed.
As the offensive line coach, Scott helped mentor center Sampson Genus to a second-team All-BIG EAST honor in 2009 as voted on by the coaches. Florida State defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews called Genus the best center they had seen all season.
In addition, redshirt freshman tackle Mark Popek was named Freshman All-America by both Sporting News and ESPN, while guard Zach Hermann earned third-team honors by Phil Steele.
A unit that had to replace a lot of experience lost from the 2008 team, the 2009 offensive line turned out to be one of the team's strengths after facing question marks across the line coming into fall practice.
In his first full season, USF saw the development of Cedric Hill into one of the most feared tight ends in the BIG EAST. He continued to help the offense and his position group excel in 2008. Hill earned second-team All-BIG EAST honors, while Ben Busbee stepped into a prominent role alongside Hill.
Where Scott has made arguably the biggest impact on USF is in recruiting. His work in Miami and throughout Dade and Broward counties has helped USF reel in a string of highly-regarded classes. In fact, many considered the 2008 class among the best in program history. Then, Scott and the entire coaching staff went out and signed a 2009 class that was ranked as high as No. 21 nationally and was praised again as the best in program history.
Never interviewed at FSU so no one kicked anyone ass here.
Time will tell if this was a good hire or not.
If I remember correctly he didn't interview here because he turned down our interview.
People need to go lay down or something. Who would freak out over this?
