The next head coach...the right head coach...can get this program back to a 10 win level by year two easily.
If Golden were to leave tomorrow and the right candidate came aboard, he would not find a team bereft of talent.
In fact, it would be far from it. And people like you and others with actual coaching experience (VACane) can speak to the fact that it is not being coached up. I say year two because many of the notable coaches achieved great success in year two as they took over programs that already had good talent waiting for them:
Pete Carroll, USC (Trojans 5-7 year before)
Bob Stoops, Oklahoma (Sooners 5-6 year before)
2000: 13-0 (NC)
Nick Saban, LSU (Tigers are 3-8 year before)
Nick Saban, Alabama (Tide is 6-7 year before)
Urban Meyer, Florida (Gators 7-5 year before)
2006: 13-1 (National Championship)
Granted other coaches like Harbaugh or Briles took longer than two years, but they inherited programs that were more bereft of talent.
That is NOT the case of Miami next year.
