Which football assistant would you want head coaching your team?

Tom Herman will make an excellent head coach.  He got my vote.  I think it's only a matter of time before he and Luke get some offers.  Want them to stay of course, but can understand if they look to become head coaches.

I took Herman but I wouldn't be sad to see coach Warinner as the head coach.  He performed miracles with the O-line last year.

You want to talk Ed Warinner miracles, think about how he helped coach the Jayhawks to an Orange Bowl win.  He was their OC at the time.

It was a miracle they were even in the game to begin with. Mizzou deserved the berth more.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

These questions are getting harder.  Can we get a layup?!

As much as I love Tom Herman, I absolutely would love to see the mayhem a Kerry Coombs led team would incur on opponents. Granted, the injuries due to extreme adrenaline rush and speech induced toughness may cut his head coaching career short.

I voted Herman -- he's young but shows much potential, seems to have the confidence of his players, and shows that he can play to his players' strengths.
On a side note: I love these polls, but does anyone else think that the choices should always be in alphabetical order?  I sometimes get the feeling my answers -- and the results in general -- are often influenced by the order of the choices (response bias).

Vrabel gets snubbed

Yeti's have feelings too.

I'm going with Fickell. I don't think he'll have that "deer in the headlights" look the next time he steps to the plate. He'll get to select his own staff the next time around and build from what he's learned from two great head coaches. Besides, defense wins championships.

I voted Herman, but my heart tells me what you just wrote is true. I think Fickell will make an great HC next time he gets a shot...which personally, I hope is a long time from now.

I hope the entire staff can stay together for at least 3 more seasons. Might be too much ask with the success the program is already seeing.

Alabama,Georgia and Florida have an excuse with all those transfers and players leaving year for the Nfl. It would be inserting to see how our apr scores were when cooper was here. We had allot of players leave early in those years

Looks like your comment jumped through a wormhole into an alternate part of the universe!

Why not, may I ask?

Herman leads this poll overwhelmingly.  Look at the influence MEECHY has on this website. When MEECHY speaks, the 11W community responds

I'm just happy to be here
