I don't know. I think he will need to i mprove his mechanics (feet) and ability to read defenses and manage games. But if he is drafted by a team with great position coaching and patience, I think Haskins has a high ceiling.

Unrelated but my favorite tidbit about the coaches you mentioned was that Dennis Franchione left TCU for Bama and then left Bama after 2 seasons for aTm. This was after he had Bama at 10 wins. His departure lead to the Mike Price situation and eventually to Mike Shula. I love anyone who can troll the Gumps in such epic fashion.

You underestimate how bad that pathetic front office is. The Bengals went to the playoffs 7 times from 1968-1991. Not great, but they did make 2 Super Bowls and should have won 1 of them. Enter Mike Brown. 1991-2003 is they are the worst franchise in sports. Marvin is hired in 2003 and immediately takes a 2-14 team to .500 2 seasons in a row, then has the best team in the AFC. He then takes the team to the playoffs 7 times in his tenure which is the same number of playoff appearances as they had in the 32 years before he became the head coach. With any other team Marvin likely wins a Super Bowl.

The only college experience he has: Michigan State graduate assistant 1991 Ohio State LB coach 2017-18 That's it. The rest of his career was in the NFL. I bet he's a decent NFL coach, but it's quite obvious from the play of his unit the past 2 seasons that he isn't a good fit for the college game. And that's ok, not everyone is cut out for different levels of coaching/teaching. Many of the best high school teachers would struggle teaching 1st grade and vice versa.
