Sark hasn’t been hired yet.  Chip brown is saying to expect that.  Chip brown also said lots of things and was wrong.  If Texas hires sark I’m gonna need that bandwagon Bama application 

Folks still take him seriously?

Thank goodness! When I read that report last night, I thought, you were on a roll with making great hires and just ruined it! 😆

Bryce young isn't following lol 

I forgot, your opinion is fact. My bad. 
 

I don’t think he does, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility.

Soooo, does any here have any legit info? Right now social media is a dumpster fire of speculation, old Tweets about Herman, and memes. 

Is there anything solid at this point? Is it Sark or what? And if it isn't Sark, why the hell is UT dragging this out? The announcement of Herman's firing should've immediately been followed up with the announcement of the new guy. 

The Inside Texas have said it’s Sark and they have a post up about his potential staff hires. 

They were the only ones that were right about the coaching change and they had Sark and Kelly as the tier 2 candidates after Urban.

To most people that watch college football it’s a hire that’s done if your top 15 list turned you down.  If you’re hiring a coach with baggage you hire one with problems that won’t resurface with large amounts of pressure.  Hugh freeze screwed up by breaking recruiting rules.  That’s stuff you can keep an eye on.  Sark is an alcoholic.  That demon is hard to bury for life.  Some do it successfully but not with the pressure that the head coach at Texas will endure.  If Sark is actually hired this will prove to be as bad as Charlie strong 

Well you’d be wrong because plenty of people that get paid to watch and talk about college football are saying it’s a good hire.

He’s got 8-9 years worth of work as a HC to show his capabilities.  He’s a .600 coach.  And an alcoholic.  That’s always there.

I'm not saying that but be realistic... Nick saban could follow sark to be is DC at Texas too but we aren't going to say that... 

Young was a few practices away from being the starter for Bama this year as a freshman. He has almost zero competition for the bama starting gig next year and will be playing with more weapons and a much better oline than he would transferring to Texas. 

I mean yes it could happen I guess but come on... If I said "I don't think bryce young is going to texas" would that make you feel better?

Thats where YOU are wrong. Those guys get paid for views. They will say whatever they are told to say that draws ratings. Believe it or not I actually met one of these "experts" once at the casino in shreveport and he said as much.

The catch phase now is ( whatever moves the needle ) is what they will say. Does not have to be right or wrong or true or false. Just move the needle.

Analysts are not reporters.  There’s a difference.  I figured you guys knew that from politics

Only reason I bring it up is because Sark recruited him and he’s followed Sark since his connection to USC.

Just for information sake why do you think Campbell and Franklin are better.  I saw where you said throw some money at freeze who I also like as a play caller btw but what makes those names better than sark.  Wouldn't freeze be on the same level as far as records and baggage? Just curious what would give the other names an edge.

Franklin has done nothing but win... At VANDERBILT and JAILBIRD PENN STATE...

Sounds like Sark will call the plays.  Let's see who who the DC will be.

seriously though, the talent is there... calling the plays isn't the issue.  The issue has been implementing an offense that doesn't revolve completely around 1 player.

Sam was great.  But he was limited bc everyone KNEW he was it.  Texas barely tried to use anyone else.  Look at the bowl game.  Robinson was dominant...  Most people didn't know who he was until after that bowl game.

Will be fired in 3 years tops, rinse and repeat.

Herman needed to go and I know UT has a massive buyout to pay.....but this is really the best that the University of Texas could do? Damn.

They literally just hired an even worse coach.

Did nothing at Washington, got let go at USC, got let go at Atlanta when he was OC there, and anybody looks good being a coordinator for Saban.

Did not know Kevin Eltife has as much pull as he does at UT.

He is on the Board of Regents with the UT system. He is the Chairman of the Board to be specific.

Hope this happens.  Lupoi may be the #1 "bagman" of all time and playing the game.  Cries of "Uncle Red" during the Strong years will be child's play compared to what Lupoi would do making the rounds in Houston/DFW.

Additionally, multiple sources told FootballScoop that a reunion of Sarkisian with defensive line specialist and recruiting guru Tosh Lupoi, who’s spent the past few seasons in the NFL, also has been discussed.
