Fundamentally sound performance thrashing Edsall today. Almost beat JoPa last week. Very impressive.
I think it is a safe bet to say that had Edsall left earlier Addazio may have replaced our new coach. I definitely could have seen Al Golden taking this job....and who knows if Miami had been upfront about the Shapiro mess if things would have turned out differently. I know one thing is for sure Addazio wasn't very popular the last few seasons with Florida fans. Jury is still out for me on him.If only Randy Edsall had left earlier!
Addazio may be a good head coach. Can't really tell yet. But...I am not sure where he gets a rep as a good recruiter. He was a good recruiter at Florida..who can't recruit there? Also..he is playing with Golden's players...let's see him do it with his own.
Lastly..he wasn't a scapegoat in Florida..his offense was horrible. Gator fans, rightfully so, were happy he left.
Again...he may turn out to be a good head coach..but he was a bad OC.
Isn't that why we got Coach P?
Not sure if that was stated as a reason. Posters here pointed out that he had success getting CT kids at Syracuse (Freeney, McIntosh brothers, Tebucky Jones . . .etc.). If I remember correctly, Addazio left Cheshire high to join Coach P's staff in 96 or 97. Then on to Notre Dame, then to Florida.
