He was the interim head coach for that bowl game, but he didn't call the plays.

Money is the biggest consideration in moves, but not the only one. If Boom brings in a new OC, that means that McClendon does not get promoted and is stuck as the #2 guy for multiple years. And it may generate so much tension and animosity that he opts for a fresh start.

Remember, two years ago he was the Head Coach for UGA in a bowl win and calling plays. The title of Co-OC does not mean much if he is not calling the shots.

According to media reports, John Lilly called the plays for UGA's bowl game when McClendon was IHC.

McClendon has been pretty circumspect about the co-oc title in on the record comments. I'm sure he's very pleased to be getting a chance/look in the bowl game and practices. Either way it's a good chance to grow as a coach.

Yeah, we gave him a title so we could give him a multi-year contract and lock him down.

But it is like any job - you are looking for a promotion, with more money, more authority, more responsibility. If he can't get that here, he will go somewhere else.

Ph/JDCock, McClendon may not have actually called the plays, but he put together the game plan (heavy on the run) and ran the Offense. I would actually be okay with McClendon as the OC and Bentley calling plays - as was rumored at one time - Bentley has a great track record at doing that.

If I remember correctly the university only gives multi year contracts to assistants who are coordinators. By giving people titles they are able give them 2 or 3 year contracts.
