Tom's Taste-Tester

Some Longhorn fans have taken things a little too far, and so Tom had to make a new hire.

LA Times / USC offers offensive coordinator Graham Harrell a new contract

Spoiler

After making the decision to retain its head football coach, USC has made a move to hold onto offensive coordinator Graham Harrell, whose successful debut with the Trojans has made him one of the most coveted coaches on the college carousel.
USC offered Harrell a new contract on Friday, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke on the condition on anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.
It’s up to Harrell to decide if he’d like to continue coaching at USC, where he required just one season to transform a moribund offense into one of the nation’s most explosive attacks.
The offer, which is believed to include a sizable raise, comes soon after Harrell, a Texas native, interviewed for the same job at Texas. The details of the offer were unclear on Friday, but as Texas looms, USC is attempting to move swiftly to secure Harrell.
That urgency became clear quickly after new athletic director Mike Bohn announced the decision to retain Clay Helton on Wednesday. In a sit-down with reporters, soon after the announcement, Bohn offered impromptu praise of Harrell, calling his Air Raid offense “impressive by any standard.”
Maintaining that standard is expected to cost USC significantly. Bohn promised a “redoubled commitment to tools, resources and access to things that are going to help them be successful.”

Many within and around the program believe that’s a price worth paying. Harrell was hired in January, after Kliff Kingsbury abruptly departed to become the coach of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals. Harrell quickly earned plaudits from players and coaches, as his offense radically simplified the scheme USC had run the season before.
The Trojans have the fifth-most proficient passing attack in the nation behind the unexpected rise of Kedon Slovis, who arrived at USC as an overlooked three-star recruit. Under Harrell’s watch, Slovis stepped in for injured quarterback JT Daniels and emerged as one of the best young passers in college football, throwing for 3,242 yards and 28 touchdowns.
 

Max Slovis, Kedon’s father, said this week that Harrell was one of “the single most influential people in Kedon’s growth.”

I have a gut feeling that if we land Harrell, we will be getting our own version of Lincoln Riley.  When Herman inevitably gets shitcanned, Harrell takes over and away we go.  To me I'm just getting those vibes the more I read about the guy.

It also makes no sense.  If he’s really that good, then we will do well, and Herman will not get shitcanned.  If Herman gets shitcanned, it means the offense probably wasn’t good enough.

That doesn’t make any sense.

When it comes to trusting your gut, you may want to look into adapting the George Costanza approach...

Any programs beating down Chris Ash’s door given he’s a leading candidate for our DC position and thus should be a highly sought after coach...?

I hear there are several insurance companies and car warranty providers who are burning up his phone lines.

Saw articles connecting him to the VT job and Washington St. 

Though if the Ash to Texas thing is as much a fait accompli as we are to believe - it might make sense that no one else would be looking too hard at him.

I just read Odom is “the clear favorite” to replace Norvell at Memphis.

From SI:

Quote

A source close to the Memphis football program told Sports Illustrated Odom is the clear top candidate to replace Mike Norvell (as reported earlier by multiple outlets, Norvell is leaving to take over at Florida State). The source also stated that Odom has the support of several influential Memphis boosters, so I’d be stunned if an announcement wasn’t coming in the very near future. 

 

And, please, no more tired Mangino is fat material. If you think, "Ya know, I laughed at the buffet references the last ten times they appeared. I think I'll post one of my own!" For the love of God, think again. Something fresh involving the eclipse of the setting sun or other pithy astronomical references to gravity would, as always, be welcomed and lauded by all.  I write this not as a thread fascista. I write as a humble contributor.

I don't recall anyone suggesting Mangino was fat (that would be insensitive), just hungry.

Also, I get the feeling Graham ain't coming
