I'd guess Tom has some relationships with current Buckeye staff

their offense and defense seem to be doing well

but, Obviously the Buckeye staff is being well paid.  Will take more than $$$

Right now, I'm hoping for Graham Harrell from USC for OC.

I think he's a perfect fit for our current situation. He's familiar with the Big 12, has experience with big programs, obviously understands a multi-receiver passing offense, but also teaches Green Bay's west-coast style. Crucially, he's actually coordinated an offense by himself before. We wouldn't have him for long, since he'll be a mid program HC if it works out at Texas.

btw, my post above is in no way trying to suggest that Hermann should hire a Buckeye assistant

Your post makes some good points

I just hate to see UT become Texas Tech

That's the easy reference for Harrell, but I don't think it's accurate.

I think Harrell has the ability to coordinate multiple forms of offense. Green Bay loved to use TEs and also throw the HB swing and flat passes. This season, when Texas TE Cade Brewer got hurt, our offensive staff simply had no answer as to how to change away from power run first. When you can put Devin Duvernay, Brennan Eagles, and Jake Smith on the field at the same time (and yes Malcolm Epps), this doesn't even need to be a question. Texas, though, just threw up their hands and continued business as usual.

I don't think he'll have an issue working with Herman's "run first" mindset. The difference is being able to exploit a defense camping on the "run first".

I can't remember the last time we had a good tight end who also stayed healthy for even half a season.  Was it Jermichael Finley, who was right after David Thomas?  Has it really been over a decade that we've been able to rely on that position?

A good healthy tight end sure would be useful to our offense

Loved Thomas wish we had one like him again

Before that, Bo Scaife was hurt every year - until he wasn't. It's like Spinal Tap's drummers.

That, though, is the reality of the college game. If your important players didn't sign, didn't make grades, or got hurt, you can't go to the waiver wire to keep running your favored schema. You have to be ready to go into team meetings on Sunday and say, "OK, here's how we're thinking on offense this week!".

Losing Brewer and Colin Johnson was a significant hit to talent, and no doubt. However, the plays Texas ran showed me that they just didn't have the intellectual capacity to scheme with the players they had. So many versatile pieces could have easily been repurposed without a huge learning curve. The OCs just never did their homework.

I don't understand how anyone who is already coaching at the P5 level comes to Texas for what could *easily* be a one-year stint.  Joe Brady from LSU?  Why?

It's not like any of them will stay around if the gig doesn't work.

Better start raiding Tulsa and Houston.

I’m sorry but how many times have we seen this movie.  At Texas or anywhere else.  Sacrificial mass coordinator firings are the final chapter.  Next season is just the epilogue.

I find myself feeling similar to T95.  I could use a shot of Droog Optimism right about now! :)
