If we can't get Mullen then it is time to change directions – Belotti, Mora, Cable, do nothing and really will not have any impact on the kids being recruited.
If we go Top Coordinator, we can make some noise. There are three guys poised for a big jump:
Brent Venables – Oklahoma D Coordinator
Kirby Smart – Alabama D Coordinator
Bud Foster – Va Tech – D Coordinator
$1.5 to $2MM can grab these guys and we have money for a big time staff. Venables is a mean ass recruiter from what I have heard. These guys all have nice stories to tell the recruits and are deep college guys and will get a big time job very soon. Do we not go after next years top candidate to grab the safe choice? This is not taking a flyer on a Dorrell type. These guys are known as the best in the business. Venables being the Home Run.
Time to get the best Top Coordinator and stop going after the 6-7th available ex head coach
