    IF,and not so sure it will happen,PJ is gone I would think according to ESPN a younger OC from a big school wou;ld be considered..I think ESPN listed 10 OC guys who are able to run a big show.I dont see anybody big name wise who would entertain Tech but throw couple of Million at them and who knows.......still say he wins seven to eight and he is golden in eyes of the Hill.

    At the end of Gailey's tenure I suggested Charlie Strong...I'm not sure right now as I'm honestly not as knowledgeable about college football as I was in 2007.

    12 out of 13. When will this stop?

    If CPJ retains his job at end of season, it will be because ( in my mind ) he has at least beaten ugag. If not, what is the point except to prove that the Hill does not care at all what GT people think and they are sapping the Institute for all it is worth.

    If we need to hire someone new it should be the very best coach available we could get. I don't give a damn if he went to GT / ugag/ bama / ND / or SW La.

    This is a business (only going to become more so) and we need to stop screwing around or drop the sport.

    Allways good to look inward for promotion but I sort of agree with you.......this is big time football and it needs big time guy to run it.Still think the Hill is happy with high graduation rate and seven and five and loss to Georgie but we either accpet this(which no one will attest to) or we get better and get to next level.Big mistake was Carson,not that he was not that bad but total culture turned during his tenuare..He had some good teams but he was no Dodd....Nobody was or is another Dodd so lets get the best out there and give him couple of million and see what we can do.Now if we have a guy working for us then fine but make sure he can do the total job.That is all.

    Ed Orgeron. Forget his record at Ole Miss. Cutcliffe's recruiting had flatlined and Orgeron inherited a team with little talent. He got only 3 years there. Houston Nutt won big with Orgeron players. He turned around an USC team that was left for dead after the Kiffin firing. I think he learned from his time at Ole Miss and will be a better coach now. Tech needs a game changer in the recruiting department.

    He at least has a good personality, so that'll be one major improvement.

    Hilarious. This thread has been open for 36 hours. There's been several that have been calling for Paul Johnson's firing since 2010 and none have offered up a solution in this thread. Yet, there's another player/program bashing thread that's up to 7 pages. Wow.

    I actually think this is an interesting conversation. I'm very interested to see what direction we'll go. We've gone with the nfl head coach. We've gone with the extremely successful FCS coach. Could we go the young coordinator route this time? Only drawback is if you go with a Chad Morris or a Rhett Lashlee, one great season or two good seasons at GT and they are gone. By the way, is GT head coach even a better job that Auburn or Clemson OC? Definitely debatable. They could stay at their job and not have to face the huge challenge that is building a program at GT and probably still be in the mix for big time jobs.

    1. Kurt Roper- He's got an impressive track record as a QB coach and he did a pretty good job the Duke OC. If he does well at Florida he will be a hot commodity and if a big job is up for grabs at the same time, we'll have virtually no shot.

    2. Rhett Lashlee- Auburn's OC. 31 years old. This would be an interesting hire. Young coach with an offense that I love and can work with nfl talent. But can we bring in nfl talent? That will be the $2 million question.

    3. George Godsey- Might not be ready until we fire the next coach in 5 or 6 years but here is the "Tech man" that everyone wants. Could be the best long term option. He might be the one guy that if he had success here, he would say no to bigger programs.

    4. Ted Roof- Don't like the idea of this but he's a good recruiter and would likely retain Pelton and other coaches that have done well recruiting. Only question is if he could bring in a good coordinator and offensive staff. I think this is a last resort but could be reality because I don't think we'll have a lot of people lining up for the job.

    5. Jeff Monken- Just kidding.

    Well agree some may come and stay for a few and leave.....but throw couple of mill on the table and....they will come I assure you.Good picks though on your first five...could go with them but Roof is a long shot.

    I think Roof is more of a realistic candidate than you think. And I don't think we'll have a lot of coaches lining up to get the job like you think. It's more than the money for most people. It's about long term success. Think about Lashlee. He'll do his homework and realize that GT has a ton of restrictions and is a tough place to win at. He's 31 years old. Why not stay with Malzahn, make plenty of money, have a lot of success and he'll for sure be a candidate for a much better job. Spurrier is getting old. Richt won't be at UGA forever. Florida doesn't love Muschamp but won 2 national titles with a similar offense under Meyer. A guy like that will have a ton of better options. If he comes to GT and fails, he's done for a big time job for a while. Why would he risk that?

    Don't forget the superstar candidates we had last time our head coach position was open. Paul Johnson, Randy Edsall, Chris Hatcher. Get ready for more underwhelming candidates.
