FIU Has A Head Coach? 


Florida International has reportedly hired former North Carolina and Miami Hurricanes coach Butch Davis. However, FIU has since denied the report.

Since FIU is heading to the Conference-USA with Middle, this could be a pretty big deal.

Thoughts?

RE: FIU Has A Head Coach? 


I know FIU fans must be jacked up but to be honest, he has a ton going against him. He ran UNC into the dirt with all of the illegal stuff. Will he do that with FIU? He can recruit. No doubt. If he wins down there, will he stay longer than a year?

To me, it's a rebound hire. He has talent to work with. Medlock is an outstanding QB. They have defensive talent. However, it's like a Pitrino hire. Lots of press with it but no stability for long term growth. He's there to prove that he can coach so he can get picked up by a bigger school. That's it.
