No, not as OC -- but, rather, as Head Coach.
I am disgusted with the reports that CRN is throwing CNC under the bus.
So disgusted, that even though I've argued that we cut CRN some slack -- that he had some of the right pieces in place and we ought to let him see how things play out -- I would just as soon have him gone, now.
Why the turn around? Because I don't think CNC was the problem -- I think CRN is.
In my mind CNC was on of those "right pieces" -- who, if given time and some players, would be a part of the turn around.
CNC didn't choose the Pistol he did his best to implement it. CRN chose it.
CNC didn't choose the O Line coach. CRN did.
CNC didn't choose the receivers coach. CRN did.
So, the CEO fires the most talented department head, and actually the department head with a far more distinguished record than the CEO.
Well, that may be the way things are done, but not in my world. CNC has been a loyal member of CRN's team. He deserves some deference and loyalty back.
My loyalty to CRN? Gone.
I guess CRN's ploy is to fire everyone around him, and then claim he needs time to restock and give the new coordinators time to implement new schemes. Scrambling to save his ass, CRN is flailing about and pointing everywhere but at himself. I've been on his side and CNC's, until this morning. Now, I've had enough of our Head Coach.
He built this mess and I've not heard him stand up and say "I've not done a very good job. I've made bad decisions. I am responsible for everything you see on that field. I could have changed things and I didn't. It's on me -- and if I don't do better, I will quit next year." Instead, he's cleaning house. But, he's the biggest stain in the toilet bowl. It's time for a clean flush.
PS. I was going to write a really long post on the state of both our football and basketball programs. I'll try to get to it, soon. Suffice to say, I'm not a big supporter of either head coach. And, that's sad for me. Because I was.
