    All Pro DT with lengthy NFL career probably doesn't have money worries, but is smart enough to realize he's missed a lot of his families "growing up". Being an assistant coach is a lot of work away from his family, so it makes total sense to me that he could say, "I don't want to miss so much family". He's now proven his ability, he can get a job many wonderful places given the right timing.....but he's 41 years old with 5 children. I get it totally. The very best coach. We benefitted greatly from you being part of our family, but I'd bet the young men under your coaching REALLY benefitted from your expertise and quality.

    Not much. As far as recruiting goes, this is just about the perfect time for a coach to leave. We have all our FR signed and have enough time to make an impact on any recruit we want with just under a year left until next signing day.

    Weis as actually a good recruiter and I dont think he was that bad of a coach that offense was doomed from the start and got worse once Brantley got hurt

    I am a big fan of Bryant Young. I grew up in SF. To his defense regarding recruiting he was starting from scratch. He wasn't recruiting big names while at San Jose State. It's not like other coaches that have been on SEC caliber kids for 3-4 years and jump from say Auburn to UF and just continue on. He really had to build relationships from day one when he arrived at UF. Several of our recruits and especially in this cycle have mentioned him as a big reason they have interest. Will we get a "better" recruiter, maybe, but I think he was hitting his stride. Great person.

    If Pease didn't show you anything with the variety of sets and shifts, working with a young quarterback and no playmakers, and establishing a dominant rush attack with an unproven and untested back, then I don't want you on any jury.

    Considering we're talking about Coach Bryant Young, I'm not even touching this.

    Losing Coach Young isn't the end of the world, a lot of the recruits loved the guy and so did Mushchamp and the rest of the staff. However, the hiring of Brad Lawing was a huge get. He's got great experience with ends and tackles and if Mushchamp can't get the guy he wants for a replacement, I believe Lawing will do just fine, with the line and recruiting.

    Maybe not, but we can kiss our Chicago prospects good bye. I guess recruiting is a lot about salesmanship, and maybe Muschamp prefers the hard-sell type, but to high school coaches and players up here, Bryant is God-like. He can walk into any school in Illinois or Indiana and be recognized immediately. On the heels of Morrison's early success, it looked like we were going to continue some success here. I expect to see some big name prospects drop us from their lists soon, especially if it appears Young was forced out.

    Wow...
    I disagree with almost everything here.
    No doubt coach Young was respected. I agree.
    Everything else is a non factor . His leaving will Hurt us zero. Respectfully, jmho

    Strange we only recruit 2 or 3 kids a year there and I am not so sure we can kiss those kids goodbye now. The next hire will have his own stomping grounds.

    While I like his aggressiveness and think he's a brilliant offensive mind, I think his work as a developer of talent (perhaps the biggest thing for a college football coach) leaves a lot to be desired and that his scheme is overly complex for young players- give him a squad loaded with upper classmen like his first 2 ND teams and he's gold, give him a bunch of young guys and you have what he gave us in 2011. I do think he's probably a better OC than Pease in terms of ceiling but his floor is lower (not a fat joke).

    I agree. Look at his record, he hasn't recruited that well. I'm a big fan of coach Young but as far as recruiting goes, he was raw.

    North Carolina was not Young's turf. Hiring Lawing was obviously a big help in that region, even though we were doing well there before Lawing. Young was just starting to make inroads in Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. No way we get Morrison without him. We wouldn't have even scouted him, never mind signed him.

    I'll reserve judgement until we hire his replacement, but this staff is heavy on southerners. Wouldn't mind seeing someone who can open up other regions.
