Default Did Muschamp suggest he was already leaning toward McClendon before the bowl game?

Muschamp said he interviewed between 5 and 10 people for the position. He also said he pretty much knew after the bowl game but wanted to sleep on it. That's all fine, and I have no reason to think he's being dishonest, but something relatively small he said got my attention. He said he brought Werner over for a bowl practice and after he saw how Werner and McClendon seem to mesh well he thought, "This could work." I just wonder if this suggests he was already leaning toward making these specific moves. Thoughts?

I think after we got some practices under our belt Muschamp was very impressed with how McClendon was conducting himself but I don't think he let himself get sold one way or another until the game was actually played. As for Werner and McClendon being a good match and Muschamp identifying that well before the hire that's called covering your bases. I think Muschamp knew he wanted a very experienced staff member addition if he did go with McClendon and was certainly lining things up for that just like he was trying to assess his external candidates.

Default Re: Did Muschamp suggest he was already leaning toward McClendon before the bowl game

Well, it was already a thought process that McClendon was more or less auditioning for the OC job with the bowl practices and bowl game, right? So why have your co-OC and WR coach audition for a job that you've already made up your mind he ain't getting?

And if you haven't done that, then it's certainly fair to say that B-Mac getting the job was a likely possibility that CWM was already playing in his mind, as he considered all the options....

He had already chose Bryan McClendon to be his WR coach last year, and recruiting coordinator. If you don't think he was a LITTLE BIT inclined to do whatever it took to keep him on staff... well, there isn't really much hope for you. He knows the guy, thinks he can do a good job, and proved he can do a decent job in the bowl game/lead-up to the bowl game. Of course he was leaning towards him.

He talked to Lane Kiffin too, but didn't offer him the job.

that was reported very quickly as nothing but comparing notes and not an actual job interview...the fan base would have had a fit if he even thought about bringing that jackwagon in...he is a better fit with the taters

He is a nut, but our offense would have been excellent. He’s back on the track to be a big time HC tho. Can’t see him going to be an OC any time soon.

I think their was a strong lean towards hiring BMAC before the bowl game. He just hoped and prayed we did well in the bowl game so it would be an easier sell IMO.

I don’t think he every really wanted an outside OC. I think that was a bad decision but we will see if muschamp gets a surprise stud OC.

If Kiffin wanted to be an OC he would still be at BAMA.
BMAC wants to be a HC and to do that he must recruit, organize, interact and provide results, starting here. Two years of solid RESULTS he may be Head Coach material for a power conference team. We will get his best effort.

He has his guy. We will see how it works. I think Bentley could be molded into a real weapon. It will be interesting how our offense does in 3 years.

I think everyone is reading too much between the lines to support their own narratives.
