Serious coaching question [1]

Why do so many on here think that paying big money to a big name coach is going to bring instant success? I've seen so many arguments that we have no history, no recruiting power, why would anyone want to play here, why would anyone want to coach here; but yet we should fork out $2+ mil to get a brand name coach?

We're all complaining about the buyout, the mistake to extend BB's contract, etc. What kind of contract and buyout would be expected to hire one of these coaches? And, what if, they aren't successful either? Then what?

It's funny, all this coaching talk, yet we just won a championship in football, with a coach nobody wanted to be hired bc we needed a brand name coach, Mike Leach was one of those I think. This cheerleader coach then went and hired an OC two years removed from high school, when we needed a brand name coach, Ralph Friedgen was Tnets's choice at the time. Not saying a no name, up-and-coming coach is the answer, but how many schools have been burned by going after the big fish.
