    You are right you should never make an emotional hire....and most good programs do not but some do. Some work out some dont...tha end.

    O'Leary was a good coach at Tech and a darned good coach at UCF save for his last year. O'Leary's 2013 UCF team could play with anybody.

    Nobody has said a word about Lance Harbor's mid-game promotion at West Canaan. In the championship game, the Coyotes were losing at half when Harbor stepped in and led the team to a victory. He has had a pretty successful run since then as well.

    Not to bad for a guy with zero coaching experience. Just goes to show that experience is a small part, but the ability to lead means the most!!

    Not going to lie, Pike. I have never heard of West Canaan.

    How do we know this was an emotional hire? Hiring Dell most certainly would have been an emotional hire back in 2015 but Chad has been here for a long time. TK has seen him as a coach for multiple years and he must have had a plan that made sense to TK and to the committee. We can say this was an emotional hire but it seems that is as much conjecture as you claim the analysis of interim coaching success to be.

    We don't know all of the moving pieces in the search so it is hard to make assertions with any solid details. Houston could have been offered and turned it down. Others could have been higher on the list than Chad and the negotiations broke down. Or Chad could have interviewed better and had a better plan. We don't really know. I don't think anyone asked TK if anyone else was offered the job other than Chad.
