For two decades he fought and maneuvered Louisville from a hardly heard of program. To a nationally admired and often envied program. We are only talking about Louisville. Because of what Jurich has made it into. So yes, Great AD.

The way he did that was obviously a problem according to the FBI. I am not judging him, simply pointing out that there's more to the story.

Paterno was unable to get another job after the scandal. Just sayin.

That's because he didn't want one. He was actually cleared of any wrong doing by an independent investigation and died not too long after he left Penn State.

For a moment there, I thought you were talking about Denny Crum.

Yeah, I'd bet good money that dying thing adversely affected his hirability.

Really? He got there in 1997. They were a basketball power before he got there. They had Denny Crum and TWO basketball NC's prior to his arrival. He also hired none other than SMILE as head football coach. He stood behind and protected Rick even when it was obvious things were not right off the court. So now he gets to maybe go to another court..................................The best thing he did was maneuver them into the ACC after they practically begged others to take them and they wouldn't. What great things did he do as AD of Colorado State. When he backed Pitino I started to have doubts about his credibility. When he rehired Bobby I knew he had none.

I guarantee some on here would love to hire any number of coaches in that realm. That's how easy some idiots think it is to be a coach.

by 'fought and maneuvered' I assume you mean hired hookers and paid off recruits?

Maybe he allowed his coaches to assist in illegally getting players to help the program..

Shirt should show an official bracket, with last few games they won and the fbi taking them out in finals,, On another note, KY and alot of the big East might drop in recruiting over the next few years waiting on others to turn over. It's wild to think an investment banker selling suits to pro players would get busted for running ponzi scheme and start all this mess just to stay out of ponzi charges.. Wow

Saban isn't going to retire anytime soon.  This is his life.  All he knows.  And if he did you have to think Alabama would take a run at the HC at Clemson.
Why would he take it and be in Saban's shadow when he is making his own shadow now? Recruiting is fine at Clemson and you can't do anything but worse than Saban other than go undefeated every year. Too small a window to be appreciated!

Clemson is a great place. IF I was coaching there and some other school called it would take an emotional attachment to that school for me to consider leaving. That being said IIRC he has that with Bama.
