This is not intended to be an attack on Dabo. Clemson fans are still raw about the SCAR game, but it is time to move on…
What are good HC’s known for? Coordinators are easy. look at a few names:
Rich Rod: High Powered Offense
Nick Saban: Defense
Charlie Strong: Defense
Urban Myer: Offense
Mike Leach: Offense
CPJ: Triple Option
The list goes on an on…......
What is Dabo’s specialty? Recruiting and that is it!.....He was never a coordinator and was just an offensive position coach. I guess you could include “manager” but in college football you have have the ability to multitask and be known for that…..
Dabo’s success is directly tied to having competent coordinators all the time. I don’t think Dabo has the ability to take over one side of the ball like the coaches mentioned above have in the past and can do in the future….
That leads to the main discussion….Are Clemson and/or Dabo on Borrowed time? If Chad Morris leaves, that will leave a major void in Clemson that is not as easy to duplicate like a pro-style offense…...The Defense is still a project.
If Dabo had a chance to go to another school like Tennessee or Auburn (Doubtful), he should take it. If Clemson goes into a tailspin, he won’t get another head coaching job at Clemson’s level and He wouldn’t be considered for a coordinator position.
Clemson on the other hand is an a dicey situation. If Dabo succeeds, we all succeed as Clemson fans, but if he busts…whew…who knows?
The situation at Clemson can be potentially more volatile than it looks right now….......
What are your thoughts?
