Who is dismissing him?
Hmm .... I guess I'm struggling to look at that and see how someone could try to dismiss him as a college coach based on the lower win seasons. Two quite clear rocket-ship trajectories, at two very different situations.
That he could convince talented college football players to come to s__thole inner-city Philly and play for a historically awful Temple program ..... what more do you need to know?
He won the American 1 out of 4 years and finished with 3 losses
He got second in the big 12 once.
He is a 47-43 coach. He has shown he has some upside and has also never shown the ability to sustain success. (Unless you count 7 losses in 2 years in the American as sustained success) He simply hasn’t run a college program for a long period of time yet. He has never coached a redshirt senior he recruited as a freshman. He has never coached a true senior he has recruited at the p5 level
He is probably the best coach Nebraska could’ve landed. He is far from a guaranteed success or failure
