There’s just something really, really wrong about this (h/t EDSBS).
… Twice in the past three seasons, the opposing offenses entered the BCS Championship Game as high-flying units, largely painted as unstoppable. By game’s end, their moods alternated between disbelief and panic. In such moments, the defensive architect generally is awarded a familiar football nickname.
That tag doesn’t fit the personality of University of Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong. He won’t amplify his resume. Certainly, he wants to become a head coach. His past and present bosses – Steve Spurrier, Lou Holtz and Urban Meyer – say he’s ready. Strong’s numbers don’t speak – they shout.
But he has gotten nowhere.
Twenty-two schools in the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) have hired new head coaches for the upcoming season. How many times did Strong get an interview?
“None,” Strong said. “Not one interview. Nobody called me. Zero interviews.”
The guy’s been a coach for twenty six years. He’s got an impressive resume. He’s worked with some big time head coaches. And he can’t even get a meeting?
