The sad thing was, he probably would have had a great career long term at SMU, but Hogs came calling and he got $$$ in his eyes. He had some good recruits lined up when he bolted and took them with him. So, now he's set for life and can coach at a level he likes.

Hopefully he still likes us and will send a good recruit or two our way.

SMU did give him his 1st D-I head coaching job and an opportunity to see if he could succeed at the highest level (at Arkansas in the SEC), so he should be grateful

I assumed this was an April Fools joke. But now it's April 2nd... :?

If I planned on staying in Allen, I think I would sell HP to avoid that 6-7 day a week commute.

But the wife may balk tired of all Chad's moves....

2014 Clemson South Carolina
2015 Dallas/HP
2018 Fayetteville, Arkansas
2020 Auburn, Alabama
2021 Allen, Texas

If Chad plans on really making Allen home, then this 15 min commute would be better IMO:

Good for Chad. I wish him well.

SMU football has moved well past where he left us.

Good for us.

Will Chad steer recruits away from his former schools?

I recall the formal introduction of CM at SMU . The first thing out of his mouth was , what I am is a High School Coach. Turner's reaction was hilarious !

He told the truth ... He’s ate a lot of humble pie . Good Luck Coach.

Didn't Chad and Paula keep a house in HP while Chandler was still playing? I'm guessing she didn't move around a lot in terms of home base but maybe moved out to Auburn.

Pretty exciting that he decided to keep coaching instead of just sitting out. It'll be interesting to see where Tom Herman ends up. They were both hired in the AAC in the same year.
