Good hire for the Horns.

Sips do what they want in that conference, schools like Tech are powerless to do anything about it. He'll stay until the Butler job opens up.

I never cared enough to look but just did and he's a tu grad. Have fun at the dildo parades and good luck navigating the eyes of texas fiasco.

So, that means that the sips can now lay claim to being in the National Championship game a couple of years ago, right?

Isn't that how this works?

Will work about as well as BCG in Kentucky. Never a good idea to hire a tough guy to coach pampered prima donnas.

Back when we were in the dumpster fire (and SWC) wasn't there a kind of "gentlemen's agreement" about not hiring head coaches away from conference opponents, and not hiring assistants away without a promotion? It seems like whenever someone brought up the idea, it was considered unthinkable.

In retrospect, maybe that had more to do with power dynamics than to the "gentle" nature of the parties.

Back then, there were multiple big, rich programs, and if the sips started poaching from the conference using the money-whip, there would be tit-for-tat retaliation, raising salaries all around, to the overall detriment of the conference vs. non-conference opponents.

Nowadays, the sips can do whatever they want to the dwarfs, and they just have to bend over and take it. And, as we know, if the sips can screw over their business partners and get away with it, they will do so without hesitation.

How can anyone blame him for wanting to leave to coach at his alma mater?

Beard was an assistant at Abilene Christian a few years ago. I guess if you can't beat 'em join 'em.

I didn't realize he was a sip grad. I can definitely understand that he might want to return to his undergrad place, due to memories, such that pay isn't a big motivator.

In my experience, trying to return to a past environment/circumstance just doesn't work; things have changed. You can't go home anymore.

If I'm not mistaken - Beard is a Tom Penders product. Wonder if he'll bring the man perm back to Austin?

Those agreements pertained the other SWC schools. Not t.u.

Yep, Texas stole Tech's football coach after one year in the 80s (David McWilliams?)

That's right at what he was making at Tceh, except longer (Tceh offered him an even longer contract) so as he said, not financially motivated.

I did hear that he did not like being an Under Armour school and that it's hard to recruit to an UA school because kids prefer Nike.
