I've been looking over his resume and it's impressive to say the least. He has done a great job at BYU and sure seems to embrace the challenges of that institution (as UCLA would bring its own). Also, he has been extremely impressive working with the history and people of BYU which would definitely be a plus at a school like ours. Furthermore, he has a Pac-10 background as an Oregon State alum and coaching experience there previously. In many ways, he combines the experience that so many of us want with the youth and enthusiasm that others are clamoring for in a way that makes me wonder why he is getting ignored instead of guys like Mike Leach, who is interesting but has not won anything significant at Texas Tech (though if he could bring Crabtree with him, I'd throw a big party).
What I'm wondering is what you fine people think of him and whether or not we could get him.
For me, he'd be an amazing long-term option as he's only 41 and has coaching experience and success.
Naturally, someone like Steve Spurrier would work too (he's my favorite candidate, though Bronco is a close second), but who knows if DG could give the Ole Ballcoach the sales pitch he's looking for, especially if the LSU job opens up.
