In an issued statment: "I'm committed to Pitt."
We'll see what happens...
It doesn't sound good. But I have heard that statement from many coaches right before accepting another job.
I have no interest in the Texas OC job
Chryst is a good man however. I believe his word
If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
UW is fucking retarded when it comes to hiring coaches. They always hire someone who will develop into a good one. They'll never hire a big name coach or an already developed coach. You can kiss a lot of prospects good bye
If he stays at Pitt I respect him for showing them loyalty and not bolting. Would really suck for us. Ugh
For whatever reason, if it's not PC, I think Barry will blow us out of the water with his hire....
Just a gut feeling.
I wish BB would've left last year. Stupid POS.
I hope so......Do you know if they tried to match the Arkansas offer or they said it was too much and let him go?
Ball tweeted, "Danny o brien just messaged me this.. 'let's do this'... it shall be done then my man. #wiscONsin."
Thats what we thought last year for the OC hire. I think this hire will be a candidate that will be good in a few years. And then he'll bolt because we won't pay. UW and Company are to fucking stubborn sometimes. No wonder we haven't gotten over the hump to national power house.
He needs to be offered the job before he can say anything else.
The Bigeddysprings is not a horse.
How do you know he wasn't offered the job already?
Yeah im not really surprised about that response.... The least it does is save his ass if he doesnt get the job at wisconsin.... I mean why would he not want to come back.... Better school, already has the connection.... everything is just better at UW then Pitt... But hell everyone has their own reasons
Maybe he has? The full statement reads different.
I hope he does, but losing a 3 in a row Big 10 champ with a very good recruiting class coming in coach doesn't scream to me confidence. I know its BB decision, but some of this has to fall on Barry for not keeping him.
If you were Pitt what buyout clause would you have inserted in the contract Chryst signed?
My thought process... If Alverez wanted to keep him, he would have. Call me crazy, but something else is going on.
I have a feeling that BB may have been getting some internal pressure (BA, boosters)--prior to the B1G Championship Game. Otherwise, why bolt?
Did he strike while the iron was hot? Before BA acted himself? It just seems really odd. Obviously there is more to the story, but my gut says BA would have kept him if he wanted...
Alvarez or Bevel? Keep dreaming. It will never happen!!!
Who's more likely than those two? Some random like Butch Davis?
That's what UW is known for. They never shock and aww. Chryst is the biggest name they'd hire and he's out. So search deeper. This hire will be a "mehh" hire and recruits will flip. It'll be a coach who'll be good down the road. This hire won't do anything for us NOW.
I agree, there is something else going on. BB to Arkansas does not seem right. I could see him leaving to another BIG school or NFL. But to the SEC that he disdains? And to a average school at best in the SEC? Doesn't add up. I didn't think he would ever coach in the SEC. I think he is going to get exposed by all the other great coaches, and the fan base will eat him alife. I say he lasts 3 years.
Bevel has NFL experience. That'd be similar to hiring bill obrien and look what he did at PSU. Bevel would be a huge hire considering it'd be almost a lateral move for him. It ain't going to happen.
