I know if I was a OC with a handpicked staff I would not want to go to a school unless I could bring my guys (those who want to come) with me.
Does this play a factor with some guys as we have several guys already hired?
Anyway, what might be some other reasons why we are approaching month two since Mario’s hire and have no OC or DC and have lost our DB coach.
Honestly not really sure there's a definite reason; he's being thorough and deliberate, there's no arguing that. Whether it pans out in the end remains to be seen.
Maybe some guys aren't as invested in recruiting as he is, and from what I've read, he essentially demands it from his staff members. Could be a turn off for some that are lazy, but that's not why Candle turned it down (chalking that up to just not wanting to answer to any superiors).
Maybe some guys want to bring in their own guys as staff members, but Lashlee didn't have an issue with it (and plenty of others don't as well). In the end, I don't think there's a definite reason - just that he's decided these hires are the most important in his coaching career, and he's taking every second to make sure it's the right move.
He definitely has no excuses for striking out on guys, given the salary we're offering - and there's been no evidence of that other than swinging and missing on Candle (which I credit him for attempting, would have been a slam dunk).
I personally think it's a tad bit ridiculous, but no one will remember how long it took unless these hires were bonafide trash; he'll be judged on how successful the offense and defense look, not the time it took (rhymes *****).
