Name a coach we could hire as our OC with that resume?
Chuck long still does not exite me...
I would still want to know what the hell he has been up to the last 5 years.
I get your point, but this and many other businesses are a what have you done lately for e business.
And with good reason n
List his last 8 years of accomplishments the same way and see what reaction that gets.

And seriously, an OC with absolutely no interest in recruiting? No, thank you.
I'd ask him why he has nothing on his resume since 04...
I would say he had 2 decent years and 1 really good one as an OC a decade ago. He was fired from SJSU and was abysmal at Kansas. Oh and the fact that he's not even an OC anymore, he's a WR coach at a high school. Also what the hell does it matter what he did as a player?
I believe I would call you a cherry picker.
Sounds like a name of a crap high school coach who should never step one foot into Blacksburg. Stay home, Chuck, VT doesn't want you.
I don't understand why his on the field accomplishments as a player matter in any way - completely irrelevant. I don't care if he was the Heisman runner up! Just b/c he was a good player doesn't mean he's a good coach/coordinator. Actually, in most cases, the exact opposite is true. Most gifted athletes don't make good coaches b/c they cannot empathize with lesser athletes and understand why those athletes can't accomplish what they could.
This scenario you presented is completely flawed b/c you're talking about his entire career. What is failed to be presented is that for the last 10 years of his career he has been mediocre to bad, IMO. He had 3 good seasons as an OC b/w the years of 2002 and 2004. After that, it was down hill. Your example would be equivalent to measuring how a football player will play next season, based on career stats, but is on the downside of his career. Take Randy Moss for example. Would you want him on your team next year as a WR? He had 4 TD and something like 30 catches this season. His career stats, and stats per game are great, but his stats for the past 5 years have shown a downward trend.
Where did you here that? Just because someone in the terror domensaid he has a big family and is happily married, people made an assumption that he wouldn't recruit?
The facts support that he was a very good OC at Oklahoma. He didn't have good results at Kansas, but that entire program was on fire. It matters what he did as a player because he was a very successful QB and I would think that would be attractive to guys like Logan.
