    Happy for the guy. A few general thoughts about CFB coaches from this:

    1. Coaches evolve with time and experience. No one is born a great coach.

    2. Coaches naturally wear out their welcome. There’s a built-in transience to their profession because fanbases grow tired of them. They either build up unrealistic expectations or they never meet expectations. 8-10 years seems to be their ceiling at one location with few exceptions. Most all are fired at some point or move on to escape the eventual execution.

    3. Their success is dependent on many people and factors, some of which are uncontrollable by the coach himself. He must fit his surrounding culture, the school’s administration, and past legacies to be accepted and succeed.

    4. In today’s climate, a coach is only deemed as good as his last season.

    Add your own?

    Yes that is great for coach O, but he had prior head coaching experience, Clay Helton did not, and he got handed one of the top five programs in America. He has destroyed this program along with the last three AD's which includes Bohn.
