That's a super disingenuous way to phrase it.

He was hired away from Colorado to Oregon by Willie Taggart. Then he followed Taggart to FSU, then to FAU. It's not like he was getting fired or wearing out his welcome.

He's a really good DC and an excellent hire for Dykes.

How much will he be making at SMU? He was making $1.7 million annually when he was fired at Oregon in 2019.

Fired at Oregon after nearly coming to blows with the head coach on the practice field. Fired at USF for striking a player in the locker room. Other than that a model of decorum and self control.

Do you want a snowflake for a defensive coordinator? Mix it up, make em tough. LFG.

I'll take that #9 ranked FAU defense.
how do we not have an IPF?
