    We have a history of that - we interviewed Bear Bryant, but selected the other Alabama guy as our coach! (Of course, that was before anyone had ever heard of Bear)

    LOL

    Ok gret interview may be a stretch for Baldwin, but I have first hand reports (once removed) that Leach was a bad interview at the time. Of course he went on to get the job at Texas Tech.

    UL Basketball Re: Errol Rogers Resigns

    Turb, I listened to Mike Leach for almost a year on the college sports network. If the interviewer says that man had a bad interview then I will say the interviewer was an idiot. He is absolutely knowledgable, insightful, and the most motivasional guy I listened to in years. I simply cannot see him being intimidated about a job at UL or not being prepared mentally or vocally unless he was simply trying not to get the job, and using the interview to garner interest.

    On another note, I have it on good sources in additon to not getting the Bear, we also passed on Mac Brown. Just saying.

    AND...we passed on Brett Favre as a player. Granted, we had Brian Mitchell, and had promised him he'd stay at QB, but ouch!

    UL Basketball Re: Errol Rogers Resigns

    Brian competed for the job and won it, the starting position was not given to him. He was told he could play the position, I do not believe he would have backed down from competing with anyone, but LSU said you will not be allowed to compete. They kinda told Marshall Faulk the same thing.

    Stokley had some good teams in those years, and if he had those two competing on the team who knows where this program could be, can you see BM as a slot back and BF thowing to everyone else. I will say I do not like BF but he was still a dominating qb in college and pros for sure.

    I totally agree with you. I made a post about this a few months ago, and someone who seemed to be more "in the know" than I am, said that the reason we didn't take Favre was that Mitchell was established already, and would not be moved due to some assurances that had been made regarding him staying at QB. It would have been unreal to see Mitchell at RB, and Favre at QB. Oh well.

    The thing is I can't define "bad interview" for instance . . . some athletic directors are intimidated by a coach who is overly sure of themselves and 'could' constitute that trait as a bad interview.

    The title of this thread keeps making me wonder why resign (to quit a job) and resign (sign again) are the same word. If Errol Rogers was to resign (sign again), that might instill panic among the fan base.

    Uh Hello,

    None of us really have any influence in this process anyway, but I am sure Scott will do whatever is best for the program.

    I panicked 1 year ago. I'm not proud of that fact, but I am resigned to admitting that it did happen.

    Resign vs re-sign. Ah, the power of a simple dash. And thank God the dash disappeared!

    Coach Errol Rogers never beat Broadhead at any level. Gary would surely be a step up for the Cajuns.

    Point taken. We can't just consider who beat Errol Rogers because everyone has.

    It's a nationwide search, folks.

    Not saying the hire won't be relatively local, but this search goes past Lake Charles.

    And, keep this in mind. We have sixteen sports at UL and only two female coaches.

    Scott will hire the best candidate. But if it's close, a woman gets the job over a man this time.

    I heard the same Jay... A national search and spending that money on CARR is what I dont understand though. The best person for the JOB lives here... Has helped McNeese to two CONF Titles and Two trips to NCAA tourney, with the kids he brought in. And this year he has three of the top 5 players from LA signed with McNeese... What determines if it is close ? and does it matter how many women we have as coaches, to me its like oh if its close lets hire a woman cause we dont have enough women on staff, thats not hiring the best candidate... I cant stand the women excuse or the black excuse... Just hire the best person...

And this year he has three of the top 5 players from LA signed with McNeese, hopefully we hire him quick so those recruits can have a chance of getting out of there letter and resigning with UL... KeKe Veal, program changer and 3 Time Miss Basketball... Jalen Johnson, who played AAU for me for 5 years and is one of the best PG in the country, and Kia Wildridge who is also a great defender an PG... We need these three at UL...

    I don't understand why so many people are having a hard getting why following a structured, successful process is the way to go. Well, maybe I can understand why you don't want to go that route, Brad, since you have a family connection. Nothing against Brodhead, and if he is the name that rises to the top, I have no problem with that. I just have a hard time with the "hire the local guy because he's local" concept. Does that give him some strong ties? I'm sure it does. But I don't think it HAS to be a local guy. I don't think it is a waste of money to look and see who the BEST available candidates are. Again, if that turns out to be Brodhead, great! We've too often in the past gone down that road you're suggesting and more often than not, it hasn't worked out. I think a structured process takes out a lot of the emotional biases and generally leads to a better hire. Is it perfect? Of course not. But, in my opinion, it has a much higher chance of success.

    I can agree on some of that...
