Not sure how I feel about this. I think he's been a horrible coach everywhere he's been and leaves at the drop off a hat. But it is a big name coming to Boca.

It is a big hire for them, and you would think that coaching under Saban for a few years has taught him a thing or two about how to run a program. He will be pushing for results quickly, though and if he has success I don't think he will be around for too long.

There's a thread for this in the non FIU section.

Good for them. Very good, actually. They felt they HAD to counter FIU's move of hiring Butch Davis with another big name coach, notwithstanding the public comments their AD said. They did. C-USA teams that come to South Florida to recruit are going to feel the crunch on those kids we used to battle for. FIU...and now FAU....are poised to get most of those top kids that fall through the cracks and don't end up in FSU, UF and Miami, and to some extent UCF and USF.

While I'd prefer FAU to remain behind in terms of coaching pedigree, I welcome it, as I'm sure Butch does. Let those recruiting battles start and let's get a top staff and improve our facilities as soon as we can.

Go Panthers!

This is an interesting move. Despite his record as a head coach, OC at Alabama to HC at FAU says a little something about the state of our conference.

Anyone have info on the contract specs?

Good for the Burrowing Owls. But I sure wouldn't trade our new coach for their new coach.

This is a big time move just in terms of recruitng...this guy has learned from the best how to pull kids and he comes from the Alabama hype.

Not good for us but I trust Butch. I also think he will be gone in two years.

I wish I could say we shouldn't be concerned, but FAU is very much in our league from both an athletics and academics perspective. This is some real competition for us. Congrats to FAU, this is a big time hire for them. They should be concerned about using FAU as a stepping stone, no way he stays 3+ years if he goes bowling twice.

Why did this get moved to a forum no one uses? The mods knows we don't get that much traffic here. Just leave it on the main page we all check into.

BTW FIU better step up their stadium game (facilities in general). FAU's stadium in 100x better than ours and now with an Alabama coach, we may be left in the dirt. Not to mention Charlie strong at USF. $$$$ IT..

Because this isn't an FAU forum, it's an FIU forum. General discussion belongs elsewhere.
