So if we got Mike Vick to be our QB coach, do you think QB recruits will flock to VT? I really don't think the coaches athletic accolades make any difference to prospective recruits. They want someone with a proven track record for developing talent, not a track record for being a talented QB.
How good someone was as a player is a mind bottling argument. Cutcliffe never played a snap of college ball, but the man is one heck of a coach. Leach is another example of this.

Not a criticism, but how do you know this to be fact? I do not know one way or the other, but all I have heard in this regard is one or two posts on this board and since those people offered no evidence either, I am waiting for someone to show me facts in this regard. I just do not want to jump to a conclusion when I do not have emperical evidence.
Any attempt to justify the hire by throwing out stuff that is 10 years old is Spin.
If you have a Heisman Trophy quarterback I would expect that you would have a good offense. Show me an OC that put up good numbers with somebody that nobody has ever heard of before and that is who I want.
The only coach that VT has brought in that was older and who was successful was Kevin Rogers.
We need to bring in an OC that is going to boost recruiting, and create some buzz around our offense for the first time ever.
CZY keeps talking about how we have "A well thought out Plan", well no offense but that sounds like BS after every game with regards to his game plan going into a game. Maybe our thinking just isn't any good.
And no CZY this is not a dig on you, this is a dig on a bunch of coaches that are completely out of touch with their entire fan base.
Welp, here's what an OU fan said about his good years..
"Arguably the best offensive lines of the Stoops era (including first rounders/Pro Bowlers Jammal Brown and Davin Joseph), Stoops' best WR group (Mark Clayton, Brandon Jones, Travis Wilson, Mark Bradley--all drafted in Rounds 1-3, all on 2002-2004 teams), Adrian Peterson, Jason White (though you can certainly argue he was a product of the talent around him, as much as anything).
When you have Adrian Peterson running behind five returning starters on the OL (including 1 four-year starter and 2 three-year starters) and four WRs that would go in the first three rounds, the OC's predicability is largely irrelevant until you run into one of the few defenses in the country with better talent."
Wouldn't you be much more excited if you didn't have to use a "but" when talking about a potential OC?
Grab a highly successful young guy from the FCS - who has not failed yet - and give him a shot.
As others have stated before... His on field accomplishments mean absolutely nothing. Also, he was a QB, when most recruits were still in diapers... They probably have NO clue who he is or what he did as a player.
How successful was he when he ran the show?
The excuses about SDSU and Kansas being places that no one can do well is garbage. Brady Hoke came in after him at SDSU and completely turned the place around and is now at Michigan.
Also the BIG12 defenses are constantly trashed on here as terrible. So he's playing against terrible defenses week in and week out and he still can't get an offense that ranks in the top 100?!
