Sounds like a younger Frank Solich. I've always liked Solich.Interesting read: A look at the Arkansas search - FootballScoop
>>That name is Willie Fritz.
Before we get to what Fritz is, let’s first acknowledge what he’s not. The 59-year-old Tulane head coach isn’t going to wow anybody. He may not win the press conference like a Lane Kiffin would, he wouldn’t impress Twitter like a Mike Leach or a Hugh Freeze would, and he might not beat Nick Saban or Ed Orgeron for many recruits on Day 1. (But then again, who does?)
But what he is is a ball coach. He’s a ball coach’s ball coach. And more than that, he’s a winner. He’s done it at literally every level of college football, except the Power 5.<<
>>Fritz has spent now 27 consecutive seasons as a head coach at five different colleges with five different cultures, five different challenges from a resources and support perspective, five different recruiting profiles, and he’s won at all of them. You simply don’t win 68.6 percent of your games across 27 seasons at five different schools without knowing how to build a winning football program. That success does not happen by accident.<<
