    It’s an irrelevant question

    Once you know someone isn’t the man, then there is no downside in trying someone else. Would someone like Chadwell be the man? No idea, but the point is he would have a chance.

    Now I’m not sold that Dan isn’t the man. But if he keeps TG and we don’t have a massive 180 next year then it’s clear Dan isn’t the man. So no harm in replacing.

    Bill Belichick had a down year in the NFL. Not sure if the Gator fans would even consider him after that mess.

    So? I’d rather have a chance than no chance. No harm in trying an up and comer when you know your guy isn’t it.

    Curious if Gray was fired or just taking another job?

    And yes Belichick had a bad year, because of bad personnel decisions catching up to them....

    Who knows this? You?? Is this your professional opinion after he is 3 for 3 in making it to a NY6 bowl since being hired?

    And when you say "like what?", you could quickly trade a consistently winning program with one that barely become bowl eligible with an unproven commodity.

    What's worse is a defense that is about the same, hopefully a bit better, and a brand new offense that will likely have lower production in 2021.

    But I'm optimistic. I still like Mullen, and I don't think Grantham's defense could get any worse. It has to improve, right?

    So if all that is true, that means there would still be one more coaching position open?
