So you think if they did hire a legit P5 DC that coaches still would have bailed?
I can see where assistants were coming into the off-season expecting a legitimate hire and then Miles Smith is named. I'd be pissed too if lovie said he was the best person interviewed. It's almost like he didn't even make the effort to make the staff better. If I were them, that is where I'd be pissed. I'm doing my best to help these kids, recruit them here, and coach a winning team and that is what the head coach gives me in return?
I get nepotism is a part of coaching to a degree, but knowing what Cubit did, I can't believe Whitman didn't out a clause in the contract prohibiting it.
There are a boatload of up and comers at smaller schools that would kill their own mothers for a Big Ten gig.
But the Miles Smith thing smells to high heaven, and that's a problem.
