You aren't taking into account the level of job CU is


I have rose colored glasses myself, trust me. I love CU. Im not saying this as a knock on your post.

But this isn't the job that a warm coaching prospect (I wouldn't go so far as to call him a hot prospect) jumps at necessarily.

It's one thing if you have ties to the school, but Sark taking the CU job last year would have been just for the sake of becoming a HC again. He has no ties here.Texas, I think we can agree, is twice the job CU is, on just about every level. Prestige, money, TV, recruiting.

Agents for these coaches aren't dummies. I'm not saying they knew, specifically, that the Texas job would open and all he needed to do is wait a year. But he must have been able to make an educated decision that, at worst, similar job offers would come in if he sat tight, and that he had a very good chance to win a NC if he stuck around one more year at Bama. When these search committees form, I am sure the same names get thrown around. He probably knew last year his name wasn't going to go away after another playoff run with Bama.
