Outstanding coach, better person.  No controversy.  

When Tom Landry was fired in Dallas, he was replaced by jimmy Johnson, when coach Shula was encouraged to step away from coaching in Miami their next coach was Jimmy Johnson.  Two HOF, franchise building coaches replaced by the same coach.

Not certain of the time frame, but what about Fred Pagac and his son.  I believe dad played in the 70's and junior in the 90's  The elder was also an assistant for several years.

Hendrik motor sports, biggest cheaters in NASCAR.  Rick spent a year under house arrest for unethical business practices; Chevy ponied up so he could lure Jeff Gordon from Bill Davis (ford); Gordon was given numerous passes through tech when winning that first championship; how many times has Chad Knauss been suspended for rules violations.  Joe Gibbs Racing was too good so they had to put a restrictor plate on their carbs to enable Chevy to be competitive.

Ditto.  Won a small wager when he picked up the Heisman.  Could not believe what he did to the Bucks in the Rose Bowl.  Did not have great numbers but like his boss in Oakland would say, "just win baby."

One of the things setting Archie apart was that he fit the Heisman Creed.  As Woody said, he was a great player and a better man.  Following the guidelines would have disqualified Winston and Manziel, and Mayfield would have been a tough sell.  Tebow and Cincinnatis Roger Staubach hit the bill.

Dabs for lying, cheating, pious nests, etc.  Woody new Clemson was dirty 40 years ago and they still are.  Herman is a close second.  Too smart for his own good.

Without hesitation I am a Bob Knight guy.  He was far from perfect but was head and shoulders above John Calipari, Jim Boheim, UNC, etc.  Far from perfect as we all know but look at how many of his formers players have gone into coaching and teaching.  Not to mention what he has done for Landon Turner.  He expected his players to learn in practice and execute during a game.  Steve Alford wrote a book about his experiences with Knight.  The title escapes me but it provides a lot of insight into his mind and methods.  If he could only recruit a center.

I am hoping that Weber gets drafted ahead of the xichigan running back that gained 1k behind a Warriner coached line and with a pass/run threat at qb, then decided he did not want to risk injury and his draft status in the annual bowl loss.  Lo and behold, he is not even listed.

That said, we all know what a crapshoot the draft is.  After all where is the sequel to "Draft Day"?
