He can be humbled and still want a better job


We don't know what other schools were interested in him last cycle. And honestly, being OC at Bama is a better job than just about 90% of the other jobs that were available last year.

Is it harder for a coaching candidate to get the OC job at Bama or the HC job at CU? And when the CU job opened after Mel snuck out..... well, I hate to say it, but if you were his agent, would you tell him to jump at that opening? Would any agent?

End of the day, I'm thinking he just didn't see it as that great an offer, he didn't have any connection to CU, and he decided to wait for a better offer. I don't think that makes his recovery and redemption disingenuous.

And while I was bummed at the time, I am happy where we are at. All worked out in the end.
