No way he leaves. His position is a more prestigious one than Arkansas HC

I hope he doesn't leave, but that snippet makes me uneasy. Just how he struggled to answer that question leads me to believe he is considering it. Hopefully I'm wrong.

I see where you draw your conclusion. I think BV really feels the way he says, but I think it all will depend on the offer. He is very loyal to Dabo and to Clemson, but he has a family, a career and maybe some personal goals for his future. Maybe his goal is to be at Clemson with his family, but maybe it's to be a HC somewhere good, and Arkansas is a pretty good gig by most standards. Frank Broyles certainly became a coaching icon there. Now, they do have bad, extremely horrible baggage, as well. Hootie coached there, so it isn't all a bed of roses.

To me it's interesting that he mentions a moral compass. I too have a problem with all these coaches demanding absolute loyalty from their players and then running off to a different school to make more $. Seems somewhat hypocritical to me. I know it's been this way for a long time, but it still seems a little crazy. I mean, Dan Mullen is coach of Mississippi State one day, and then he's making nutty gator gestures the next. Can't imagine the Bulldog fans were too thrilled with that. I don't know, how does anyone else feel about this?

No he won't leave he is to loyal to his players. I think loyalty means much to him. The trustees need to step up and see that there is no leaving with any coach

Are you serious? MONEY makes the college football world go around.
When the right opportunity meets the right price...any coach is available.

... to you and your family when you find out that you've gotten yourself in over your head and that although you were a great assistant/coordinator, you're not a cut out to be a head coach.

Failing at your chosen profession and getting very publically fired is no fun.

Some people can see that ahead of time and others are blind to the lure of the money.

And for some people, the money is enough.

Big difference betweeen interest and mutual interest.

The media needs to back off and let these men and the young men they coach fulfill their championship goals without distraction. Although, if current news is any indication, media members have a problem keeping their hands off of things or taking no for an answer.

...ask BV "where's the loyalty" unless you want to be escorted out with repeated shoving.

but I feel like the price required to get Venables to leave his nice, stable, comparably low stress job as our DC and go into a tough, high stress, high failure rate of Arkansas's HC job is a high one. It would have to be an insane dollar amount, and one I don't think Arkansas has in their budget. I could be wrong, but I would be shocked if he goes there.


I don't think he'll go there but arks budget is infinite

I think popular alumni are founder of Tyson chicken, Jerry Jones, and cofounder of Wal-Mart to name a few. I don't think money is ever a problem there

Don't forget the buy out they would have to pay. But it is time for another contract with BV to assure the stability of keeping him happy loyal. I would say a new 2 mil contract that would make him the highest paid assistant, and with a hefty buy out clause!!! As we have seen over the past 5/6 years, the key to championships has been with Dabo keeping his staff together and bringing in great replacements if and when one leaves. I think that BV would be irreplaceable, and Dabo would have to just hire the best that he could get to replace BV....
