Like I have said before, I wonder why no one looks at North Dakota State coach Chris Klieman. His teams beat P5 teams pretty regularly and if you watch them they look extremely well coached. I wonder what he would do at a place like UT with vast resources. Who knows? Maybe a lot of schools have shown interest and he's just happy where he's at.

His predecessor built the program and is now at Wyoming.  Would be another option, since Wyoming is at least FBS.  Hasn't done that well at Wyoming though.

I also wonder if he could recruit in the South? 

We could do worse though.

Regarding Tee Martin, this is being reported on other UT sites so please don't accuse me of trolling. In fact, I just became aware of it yesterday. I'm passing on what has been reported elsewhere. His wonderlic testing was very, very low which could be alarming to someone who is looking at him for a head coaching position.

You act surprised.  You do know he went through the Alabama educational system, right?

Surprised you went there...actually NOT surprised you went there. But since you did bring up the educational system, in this particular case there could be much more compelling questions to ask about the "educational system."

Edited to say, think about it...

A more serious answer...Wonderlic doesn't mean much IMO.  There are other players including QBs who have scored low but gone on to great things. 

Intelligence tests are controversial anyway.

Two of the lowest 5 wonderlic scores in history went on to have outstanding NFL careers.

We're talking about Tee as a COACH here - I'd be surprised if many successful coaches scored low.

This is the sort of thing that runs the risk of getting you tarred and feathered among UT fans, but I've said from the beginning that I believe Tee would be an abject failure as a head coach. I just don't think he has the wherewithal to do it...regardless of his Wonderlic score, but that would just reconfirm my stance.

I'm thrilled UT didn't go that route, and I think there's a very real reason they didn't. I would've taken Tee as our OC, just because he's one of our own and he's had that title (even if in name only), but I'm not even convinced he would be a great OC. There are a lot of questions about how much freedom he has with the offense at USC.

All men dream: but not equally. Those who
Dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds
Wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the
Dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they
May act their dream with open eyes, to make it
Possible. This I did.

To see if you can score better than Tee. 

I have my doubts.

OK, but take it yourself. Who knows, it may help you in some way.
