Let's put the money on the table to get somebody that has a proven track record. Stop going after these guys that MIGHT be a bargain or MIGHT have a bright future. We just fired a coach that won at least 9 games each year so he better be replaced with someone that we KNOW is going to be able to do the same.

Why take a chance hiring a Coordinator that MIGHT be a good head coach and end up right where we are now in another 7 years? Find someone with a proven track record of winning/recruiting at a high level and fork out the cash for them.

Learning on the job doesn't work. An experienced head coach already has staff he wants to bring along with, and some he might want to replace. A coordinator brings along friends to also learn on the job, and it's proven in tihis case, it just doesn't pan out..

There are to many options to limit yourself in this way. WAY to many of the top coachrs today came from coordinators and lower level divisions. Bring Frosty home.

What matters are results and character.

At some point a Coordinator needs to make the move to HC. It's the coordinator that can find the right assistants to compliment their systems and ideas that'll make them successful. Some assistants never have the aspiration, but being an HC as a prerequisite seems unnecessary.

Many great coaches have been hired with little or no head coaching experience. On the flip side, many head coaches with experience fail at bigger programs (Hoke). It all just depends on the individual. If you find the right guy then go for it. No one really knows if you're getting a good coach until a few years in unless you're hiring an Urban, Saban, etc which we won't get.

not as long as he hires successful coordinators and to a lessor degree, assistants.

While it is always a risk (Muschamp, Kingsbury, Pelini), there also is high upside - see Bob Stoops, Chip Kelly, and obviously Tom Osborne. It's a worthy gamble over hiring a proven-but-mediocre head coach.

I think our offense will score a lot more points than last year and the defense will shut more teams down on 3rd downs.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.

Give him time to see if he can figure out a winning formula here. It's not like anyone else has been successful. Not much to lose. It's too bad there has been so little success. I think Husker fans would be overly supportive of the program especially with some improvement.

Let's face it. With a few rare exceptions, Husker basketball has never been better than mediocre at best. Let's give Fred plenty of runway to turn things around. We certainly don't have much to lose (pun not intended).
