Can a football team compete consistently for championships over a 20 year time period with a head football coach who is also either the OC or DC? When you go back 20 years, in college & the NFL, it is few and far between where the head coach is also the everyday coordinator and they win a title let alone multiple. I really like Dan Mullen. However, when you look at history, should he consider taking on the HC role only so he can focus on the details of all 3 phases of the game and not just focus on game planning the O? Is his time so focused and stretched as the OC he doesn’t spend enough time on the details of D and ST? If I did my research correctly, Florida State is the only college program who had a coordinator who also was the head coach calling the plays since 2000 to win the Natty. Not saying Mullen has no idea what’s going on with the defense or special teams, rather just suggesting based on history, being a head coach and full-time coordinator doesn’t seem like a sustainable long-term plan for success. Looks like you can have some very good teams, win some big games, but the teams in college who have shown the most long term success are those with a true head coach.
