I am going to make this short, sweet and to the point. The best football coaches aren't the newest and hottest offensive guru's, or the newly appointed geniuses according to ESPN. The most successful football coaches are born leaders, organised, trusting of their employees, and CEO like. Successful football coaches run their teams and institutions like fortune 500 companies. There is a certain chain of command, respect, and level of politics that goes into keeping the players happy, prepared, and ultimately the team winning.
So you want to know the point of the story? Point is Hawkins on the surface looks like a CEO, his angry speeches about "this is the big 12 brotha" sure as hell made him sound like CEO, and we all believed he had a plan to turn this thing around. Well he didn't, he failed, 14 straight road losses later he and the administration need to figure out what the hell went wrong.
Since Nick Saban or Bill Parcells aint walking through the door anytime soon I say we take our time and make sure we get it right. We need a Chief Executive Officer that will come in and clean house, lay down the law, hire a massive staff and demand respect. We need a Saban disciple, a Bob Stoops disciple... someone who learned directly from the best of the best day in and day out. We need a leader of men, not the newest fad play caller from Oregon or Texas Tech. This new leader will bring in his own version of a goofy offensive coordinator, and replace him just as easily when some crap team hires him away after a we win a few Pac 12 Championships.
MIKE BOHN IF YOU CAN READ- PLEASE HIRE US A CEO, PLEASE HIRE US A NO BULLSHIT FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION CHIEF EXECUTIVE TO RUN SHIT.
GOOD LUCK. IN THE MEAN TIME JUST BEAT NEBRASKA PLEASE.
