Who is available that comes from a solid coaching tree? Synder has produced Stoops and Mangino Mack Brown: Chizik (lol) I want someone that has learned from one of Masters. Does it mean he's going to win? Nope, but they know what it takes to win by observation at the college level. What coaching tree does your candidate come from? Still too early to tell about the Harbaugh coaching tree, but David Shaw is kicking all sorts of ass and Stanford hasn't skipped a beat.
