Not too shabby, Gus.

In Gus Malzahn’s five years as a college assistant coach, his quarterbacks have combined to throw for 175 touchdowns  and rush for 45 touchdowns.  That works out to 44 touchdowns a season.  And, yeah, I know Cammy Cam and Tulsa are in the mix there, but so are Casey Dick and Chris Todd.

Dude can coach a little.

    Anybody wanna lay odds for 2012 on these?
    -CMR HC, Grantham DC
    -Kirby HC, Bobo OC
    -Malzahn HC, Grantham DC

    Malzahn has been a solid OC. Agreed with Senator, a proven D1 HC sould be priority. UGA has the $$$ and in state talent to compete with the top powers.

    Mullen if he is clean in the Cam saga is still my top pick. Mullen has won at what can be debated to be the 2nd hardest program in the SEC to win at. UGA’s advantages would keep solid a DC on staff to compliment Mullen.

  3. Does anybody mean, UGA will get Tressel????? LOL

    Yeah, but he can still coach these nuts. CHEATER.

  5. Still believe that the entire coaching staff is safe for 2012 & then McGarity will make wholesale changes if he has not been satisfied with the results. Warnings & expectations for 2012 after 2011 but no actual dismissals until after 2012.

    I was one who thought that if CMR left that Mullen was the right guy to pick. Now I’m not so sure. (Let me be clear, I want CMR to succeed and stay, so this is merely speculation.) The bloom is coming off the rose with the spread. That’s why FLA is ditching it. The reason it worked in the first place was the novelty of it–defenses were not as familiar with it as other offenses so they struggled against it. College DCs are getting better at defending it because they now see it so much of it. The best offense, year in and year out, is the pro style offense used by almost all teams in the NFL and currently employed at UGA. Urban Meyer left in the nick of time. His “flavor of the month” offense is about to go stale. If UGA were to make a coaching change it should be the HC from a top program that runs the offense described above and has a reputation for sound D. Not endorsing anyone but it should be someone like Bob Stoops (who probably is dying to get into the SEC with the right team).

      I can’t imagine why would Stoops want a dose of SEC competition. He’s already had multiple chances, I guess, at the UF job and didn’t bite.

      It’s like Bobby Bowden picking the ACC over the SEC for FSU way back when and, more recently, about what Jimmy said about Butch Davis at UNC…

      “I do think that’s a place you can win at, and the ACC isn’t nearly as hard, at least right now, as the SEC.”

      • Mayor of Dawgtown

        I didn’t necessarily mean Stoops himself. He is just an example of the type of coach I would want. That said, I have to disagree about Stoops’ availability. While he won 1 BCSNC and has played for others he just can’t seem to get over the hump now at Oklahoma and I am certain that he has taken notice of the fact that the last 5 BCSNCs have been won by SEC teams. It’s got to be the right school with the right offer at the right time, though.

          Good points. Can’t they oversign in the Big 12? LSU just gave Les a contract extension which means they are probably going to lay him off soon. Timing seems to be everything. My recollection is that if Spurrier had not accepted the South Carolina job, two or three weeks later he could have had the LSU job instead of Les getting it.

    Malzahn was the wide receivers coach at Arkansas. He wasn’t allowed to touch the offense, other than to “suggest” plays. And he was even demoted at the end of the season by Houston Nutt. That Nutt sure knows how to manage personnel.

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      That’s why his name is “Nutt.”

    • Dog in Fla

      Nutt didn’t know Malzahn could bring the wood. He thought he could only bring Mustain and the wide receiver with him to Arkansas.

      When and if Malzahn takes a head coaching job in the SEC, his first game against Houston will have to be the 3:30 p.m. blood game.
