"Splash hire" has me dreaming of doing something insane like stealing Kendal Briles and his $1M salary away from Arkansas.RG said it's going to be a big splash hire, Langsdorf is not that.
I think the only way Langsdorf gets the job, is if 5-10 folks have turned it down and it's late January.
Weren’t there similar rumors with the head coach job? And then with Sarkasian didn’t want the job, RG gave up and let Karl Dorrell write his own contract.One of the donors from 247 who allegedly has AD sources has said RG is looking to make “splash” hires at OC and OL coach. This was said at least a few weeks ago.
Actually don’t think Helfrich as an OC would be bad at all, and checks a number of boxes. However, I have read that Frost and the Nubs may be targeting him.
When has CU FB ever moved quickly on a hire? I think it would be great if they landed a candidate right after the CCG's, so recruiting might get a bump, but I am not holding my breath. I would say the chances of a drawn out unsuccessful search, eventually ending on a Langsdorf promotion, are about 45%.Anyone get a sense on how fast a new OC gets hired?
I'd think dang soon since signing date is 12/15/ and there may be a few players who are waiting to see if the transfer portal is their future or not.
There is also no real reason to withhold an announcement of "Danny Langsford has been promoted to OC", so the longer this takes, the more unlikely it is that's the direction.Dorrell moved quickly to fire. I’ve got to think he and others were considering possibilities well in advance. I’m hopefull, the position will be filled relatively quickly, within 10 days.
