Re-evaluating the 2017 Coaching Hires

Recommended Posts

I found this article interesting because of all the ties to the Ducks program. It goes to show you that “slam dunk” hires are not always what they seem. Neither are the non-splashy hires. This year’s rash of coaching hires will turn out the same way. There will be a lot of big names looking for jobs in 3 or 4 years.

The author’s opinion on Mario’s updated ranking is interesting, but I think he got it right. I also think they got the Jonathan Smith’s re-ranking absolutely correct. He’s definitely top 3 in that class.



It's crazy to think about how quickly that cycle went south.

A very interesting article--thanks.  And it goes to show how tough it is hire a winning coach, as the odds are very much against you.
