I'd hate to see the kind of top notch talent Cristobal can pull pitching Western Michigan and the Broncos' rich history of existing.

This guy is trying to make it a habit to accept one job and a few days later take another one, huh?

He turned down the Pitt and Rutgers head coaching jobs 5 years ago to stay at FIU. I can think of few other coaches who made dumber career moves.

He got fired from FIU after the next year. And now he can't even get a coordinating job anywhere.

Turning down that Pitt job was a really dumb career move, I couldn't understand it then, and I don't understand it now.

The only question I have is this: was he actually really offered that job? Because I would have dope slapped him myself for not taking that job. What an idiot. How do you choose FIU over Pitt?

This article from the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette describes him as the front runner for the Pitt job. Pitt Coaching Search: Florida International coach a front-runner | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It's not 100% clear he was offered the Pitt job. At the very least Cristobal withdrew his name from consideration after Pitt was taking a very hard look at him.

Mario has to be the dumbest person as it relates to his own career. Turned down better Power 5 offers from at a time he had (when he was HC at FIU). Then, accepts a job from Miami as a position coach, only to a couple weeks later accept a job at Bama. Now he gets hired on as Oregon's Co-OC, only to then interview for a HC at Western Michigan.

Is Cristobal's co-OC title really meaningful, or is it just a symbolic title like Shannon had at UF before this year where somebody else is the real coordinator?

Can you seriously blame anybody for leaving Golden's staff for Saban's staff?

I think he would have been a far better fit at FAU then Kiffin. Maybe his 12 month plan is to wait for Kiffin to Kiffin and jump to a new job at the end of next year, then he goes from WMU to FAU which is sort of an upgrade?

Not sure how this series of moves is a dumb trajectory. Maybe Oregon plays out, maybe not. If he want to be a HC this makes sense.

You really have to question his integrity at this point, has nothing to do with "dumb" or not.
