There is no guarantee with any coach we hire. Urban Meyer might not work out for tOSU and if we get Petersen, there's a chance he wouldn't work out for UCLA. The important thing is that UCLA goes out and hires top guys that give UCLA a chance to be national player in CFB.
Also, hiring a good coach will not be the end of the hard work by those here on BN and other Bruin communities. We'll still need to put pressure on the administration to ensure that the new coach is getting the full support necessary to be successful. We'll need to make sure that those football facilities are being improved, that there aren't any "monopoly is over" ads and that the money is there for assistants.
Most importantly, we’ll have to keep fighting to ensure that the next coach has a competent AD.
