Athlon - Opposing coach; Hiring Dorrell “a massive setback for the program”

“These guys got absolutely punched in the face by the coaching carousel. To have that much heat going after one year with Mel Tucker and have him leave so late in the cycle, and to hire a failed former conference coach? This is a massive setback for the program, and it’s hard to see how they can rebound from this … Mel had just started to untangle some of their problems, but they were full speed ahead, especially in recruiting. We would ‘feel’ them out in recruiting in places they had never been. Their problem since they joined the Pac-12 is that they still want to build a roster in Texas and pick scraps in California. You’re in the Pac-12 now; you have to reverse that. You don’t have any brand identity in Texas. The previous staff started to turn that around. It was basically as wide a net as they could cast. They had offers out on everyone … How are you going to sell Karl Dorrell? How does that work? He had an unsuccessful run at UCLA. Every coach in the league is going to use that against them … With the shortened offseason, I think they should stick with as much of what was working for them with Mel. He kept three or four of Mel’s guys on staff for that reason. They’ll try and get through this year with more or less the same systems and then make his changes in the next offseason”.
