Everything than any team from the SEC does when it comes to college football is heavily scrutinized. From the schedule they play to the amount of practices they have, it appears that there is always something to talk about in the Southeastern United States.
With the offseason here for a number of teams, it only makes sense to talk about the coaching hires for the teams that made changes. All of the new head coach hires in the conference came from within, which had one national writer a bit skeptical.
Dan Wolken of USA Today gave his grades for the various coaching hires, and the highest-graded SEC school was Missouri with the hiring of Barry Odom at a “B”. Kirby Smart’s hire in Georgia garnered a “B-minus” while South Carolina’s pegging of Will Muschamp as the next head man earned only a “C”.
His biggest criticism for the hires is that none of them really stood out as the best moves for the future of the program. He calls Muschamp a retread, and states that Smart’s hire was a “big roll of the dice” for the Bulldogs. He discredits the hire because it was Smart and only Smart as the target.
