You may be right, However that’s simply your opinion. We don’t know what Moorhead is thinking and how he views UConn. I know when Edsall left the first time he wanted to be the head coach here, he still may be interested. Do you have any contact to Moorhead to make a guaranteed statement like “ He’s not coming” ?
Edit: there’s sources out there I believe that says Moorhead is on the list of potential coaches, now will he accept if given the job is a decision he and his family would only know.
It is my opinion, but it is the one most easily dictated by logic. If he's interested in coaching at the P5 Level again the easiest path is 2-3 successful seasons as OC at Oregon where he won't be exposed. Go to Uconn and he could potentially struggle for 3 years before acquiring the talent needed to win 7-8 Games. Struggle longer than that and he might have to take a "prove it" job at a different G5 School before he gets the chance to move up again. I could be completely wrong and he could be happy running The Huskies, however coaches at this level have enormous egos and it likely does not sit well with him how things ended in Starkville. He's likely chomping at the bit to prove he can get it done at that level.
