For the life of me I do not know why ppl are so eager to have McClendon as the OC! True, he may do ok. Also he may be worse than what we had. He has done nothing and proved nothing. This is why we need to hire a proven OC. Someone who has done it and been successful while doing it. This is a very important hire. You can't be serious when you say " ah let's give the co-OC a chance and see what he's got.

If there is a target out there that we want for OC and we can't land him for whatever reason and there is no one else we want available then yeah maybe give McCLendon a shot.

I agree, especially for Will. His short legacy and future as a HC maybe wrapped up in this hire.

Rolling the dice on an unknown may not end well. But there's so much about this we don't know.

Haha I hear you, brother. But you're gonna have to take your lumps from time to time until the next big "sources say" topic comes up. Lots of posters had to do the same after the Muschamp to be Spurriers new DC back in '14. We know you meant no harm, just going to get a good ribbing at times.

If Will doesn't finish with a good O this year, he will be tagged as the problem. He realizes that this hire is extremely important because the knock on him is great D no O. As conservative as Will is, I can't imagine him take a chance on an unproven OC. The OC will be someone we have heard of that is proven but runs a balanced offense. In any event the O should not be nearly as painful to watch as it was the last two years. If we had an O this year, we could be 11-1 but no worse than 10-2. Will knows that. He can't afford to miss another opportunity next year as the schedule sets up well for us.

Brian Wright from Toledo looks like the best move, if he's available. Seems to be the candidate that presents the fewest question marks.

Even if it doesn't work out, you can't really blame Champ for making the move. He's a proven offensive coach and a power 5 hire is the next logical step for him. If it's not us, it'll be someone else.

Pruitt trying to hire McClendon as our WR coach if he doesn't get your OC job and would come.

Just a nugget from our board.

I'd love for him to kill his audition in the bowl game and get the job (+hire a dedicated QB coach). He seems primed to take on a larger role and I think he'd make a great primary OC. I'm not sure about his play calling ability, but UGA seemed to approve in their bowl win a couple years ago. We don't have the same RB stable here though.
