do not leave me with a sour or bad taste but rather with something more promising.
I look at the coaches being wooed away as a sign that we did something right at South Alabama.
You see anybody beating down the doors for coaches at Georgia State? Not quite.
Unfortunately, in our current position, good quality coaches don't usually last long.
I'm going to view this glass half full, because I think that's what we have. Quality breeds quality and I think we're in good shape.
Coaches come and go, that just the way it is, unless of course you're paying Saban type wages.
Its always hard to say goodbye to a good coach without mixed feelings. Sports are so emotional to start with and when coaches are motivating players to buy in to the system they are trying to sell to the players and to the fans its hard to understand why someone would leave. What we fail to see many times is that the coaches usually have a hard time making these decisions as well because they have bought into the selling of the system as well but usually move on because of a business decision. They have to go through a decision process that they have to weigh everything and make a decision based on what is better for them and their family. Of course this means parting ways with kids that have made a commitment to you and you to them. Its never easy but it is a part of the business that all coaches have to learn to deal with. Usually its the kids that feel most betrayed but they usually come to grips with it eventually. Fans are usually the most unforgiving as they are loyal through the good and the bad and cant understand how a coach can move on. Its never easy but it is part of the business.
Who is replacing Tommy Perry as running backs coach? If it was announced, I missed it.
No word on the Perry or Walker replacements yet, but I expect something soon.
