Default You are Mack Brown

So lets say you are Mack Brown. You have a lot of positions to fill on your offense and defense. Who do you hire as your offensive and defensive coordinators?

Here are some names I would consider for the Offensive Coordinator spot:

1. Bryan Harsin-OC Boise State. He has done wonders making Boise State into a offensive powerhouse. Doing a good job at Texas will lead him to any job he wants in the country.

2. Gus Malzahn-OC Auburn. Another name I keep hearing. Does not have as much experience as Harsin but has really turned the Auburn offense around.

3. Mike Leach-Former HC Texas Tech. Can you imagine his pass all day offense at UT? This is the kind of job that can rebuild his reputation and help him get a chance somewhere else.

Here are names I would consider for the Defensive Coordinator spot

1. Kirby Smart-DC Alabama. Has been studying under the tutelage of Nick Saban. And we all know Saban knows defense.

2. John Chavis-DC LSU. Has been under Les Miles.

3. TCU DC Dick Bumpas, Led the league in fewest points surrendered.

Ok. Now, its your turn. Who would you consider if you were Mack Brown.

OC- Leach heknows the recruiting landscape in Texas and California

DC- Randy Shannon, he's a very good DC who was in over his head as a HC. Great recruiter who can help expand the recruiting base into Fla.

He was the 1st choice as DC before Muschamp was hired. But he got the HC job at Miami. You wouldn't have to worry about Shannon leaving UT for a HC job since he flamed out as the HC at Miami.

Shannon is an interesting name. He did do a great job as Miami D Coordinator. He definitely was able to recruit. I would be ok with that name.

If every OC is open to coming to UT, here's who I would choose:


Offensive Coord. Dana Holgorsen (OK St.) His offense averaged 44.9 PPG and had the third best passing offense and number one team in terms of yards per game total.

Defensive Coord. Dick Bumpas (TCU) His defense had the fewest points allowed per game and he has, IMO, perfected the 4-2-5 scheme. Has a good eye for talent and with the recruting power of Texas, he should have an easy task at rebuilding the Texas D.

Default Re: You are Mack Brown

Why on earth would a DC or OC from LSU, Bama or Auburn leave their current position to do the exact same thing at UT? You can't possibly think that is an upwards move from those schools to UT. Believe it or not, those schools do have money to pay their coaches. Every one of the guys mentioned should be expecting a head coaching offer, not a lateral move to a school that just went 5-7.

The only scenario I could see this happening is that the incoming DC/OC thinks that one more 7 or less win season will be the end of Mack, and they can take his job. Even still, they would be better off building their resume at their currently successful programs and then interviewing for the spot after Mack has officially gotten the boot.

For OC, any guy that runs a pro style offense. Tired of this bubble screen BS, time to get back to running it down people's throats.

For DC, any guy that has had success in recruiting SEC country.

Well, Major Applewhite left the OC position at the University of Alabama to come coach at Texas. And it wasn't even a lateral move. He went from OC to RB coach.

David Shaw, OC at Stanford, is the latest rumor. That would not be a bad move at all.

He has coached QBs, RBs, and WRs. I could see him coming over to Texas as OC and coach either RB or WR. Then Applewhite could coach QB.

Chizik and Muschamp both came from Auburn.

Holgorsen is headed to West Virginia to be their OC.
