Didn't think of it that way. Also any thoughts on a coach in waiting scenario?
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
I would highly doubt that happens. I don't think that has worked at a single place it has been tried. Off the top of my head, all of them have failed.
Not sure that works for either side. If he gets an offer he can't refuse then he is seen as breaking a "promise" and that is just stupid. I also think that if this works then Frank may want to stay a year or 2 longer than what maybe he thinks he does now.
I agree we have some coaches on staff that need to be taken care of when this gets done.
Honestly, if he comes in and cleans up the offense and we get seriously into the MNC hunt, he's likely to be the next coach if he wants. Other coaches are either too old or too young to be considered
I don't think it happens either. Some think if Pep wanted something like that it would be considered.
I think your boy tugs just made his last post
My feeling is not the slightest chance in hell it happens. I would seriously doubt it. Haven't we only seen those in situations where the guy named coach in waiting in alread on staff?
That is just my feeling. Could name him HC, Weaver retire, frank replace him, and the Hokie bird gets named OC. I know as much as everyone else here, which means I know as little as everyone else here.
Hahah where does it say that Pep has been hired by VT? Just because Beamer is meeting with him doesnt mean much. Weve got a better shot than last week, still a few sticking points however.
Ill be the first to admit im wrong if we hire him, and ill be very glad to admit that. Just dont see it happening still.
What's he done now? LOL!!
Frank will still interview everybody he wanted to talk to even though Pep had a great interview. Unless one of the three blow Frank away I take it you guys will be happy. Maybe not telling you something you guys don't already know but same person told me that none of the guys Frank wanted to talk to runs the spread he wants a power running attack.
I know your close to Shane or at least claim to be maybe Shane still wants to be the RB coach and that won't be the case if Pep is hired. So maybe Shane can tell dad to go in another direction. LOL!!

Down in the Islands for a week, ran into a UVA fan at a little island beach. Nice guy, doesn't like CML as much anymore but likes the TOB hire.
Did you tell him that UVA sucks?
That's where I need to be is the Islands, cold as shit this morning in the Noke.
Man...I'd kill to be on the bow of my boat looking for cobia wearing nothing but my trunks....cold beer in one hand a rod in the other (no nomad).
Bring on summer
How do you keep the handle in your butt? Do you oil your butt guide? How thick is your rod? Want to see my Ugly Stick®?
Chad you couldn't pay me enough to see your Ugly Stik. Been doing some light tackle fishing for bonefish and snapper. The BVI are great in the winter.
I've been hitting all the retention ponds in the area, these things are filled with bass. When I see a no fishing sign, I start casting.
Damn been a slow day. Guess you guys will be happy as hell tomorrow though. I would have thought somebody would have broke the Pep story even more by now, maybe they have I don't have access to VIP on the Scoop. Should be tomorrow, Friday at the latest. All about the $$ now.
it better be soon or I might drive myself crazy
Maybe your MODS know just are respecting their sources and not saying anything until given the green light. It's hard when sports guys here in Roanoke are telling more of what they know than the insider site is.
why would the o coordinator at Stanford move to tech. Honest question not trying to insult. Stanford as a program is more prestigious at the moment and I would assume they have more money to offer as an institution. Not to mention the west coast weather and solid returning offense. Really looking for an honest answer from some VT fans.
From what I have read.. He is originally from the east coast. He wants to raise his kids at a not so populated area like Cali. He also does not want to live in DC(Graduated from Howard) so what better place to raise your kids away from a very populated city.
Pep is an East coast guy, went to Howard and some people say he wants to come back toward home.. Palo Alto cost of living is ridiculously high, as successful Stanford is they don't have a big fan base/following.
Advantages for VT = closer to home, cost of living a lot less, much higher salary that what he is getting now, ability to run our offense and bring in his own guys.. Also a stronger fan base/following.
Things are quiet right now with plenty of rumors around that Pep has already accepted the job but our guru's say that isn't the case. Time will tell.
