    Offense I'd be in favor of hiring Mangino.

    All in all he did a pretty good job.. He is a hellova coach.. I'm talking about OC and maybe OL.

    We do need fresh and talented new blood on the staff, I'm just not sure that a clinically obese white dude with a history of abusing players in the answer.

    Moving Norvell away from the WR position is retarded.

    I'd be in favor of boomermagic human centipeding himself to Mangino.

    Two Things
    1) It allows him to focus more on running the off.
    2) Wyatt is a better developer as a WR coach. If you can't get Wyatt, it opens a spot for another top notch recruiter.

    Norvell has made the receiving core at Oklahoma top notch and he obviously has a hand in the passing game. He gets the title of Co-Offensive Coordinator without all of the pressure. We would be dumb to mess that up.

    And for defense we can bring in Ray Lewis. Next Sunday night he'll be retired and can give those young boys that killer instinct.

    I didn't realize a promotion and pay-raise was messing anything up. We did the same for Wilson. Norvell can recruit...coaching is suspect.

    I'd be in favor of hiring Mangino.

    To address the OP..

    I think Mangino is a great coach.. Dude got KANSAS to the Orange Bowl. The magnitude of that achievement cannot be understated.

    That being said... You and I agree that bringing in elite difference makers is where we are lacking and Mangino is simply not going to recruit. He finds it as distasteful as the current staff so the only way he works is if there are multiple changes with young, hungry, aggressive coaches who are willing to do the shit work of schmoozing barely literate athletic wonders so full of themselves they honestly believe they shit gold nuggets.

    Suspect coaching? The wide receivers have performed pretty damn well under Norvell...

    He is so big as to be in poor health. I think he needs to lose at least 200lbs to regain some health and be effective as a coach. He also needs therapy for his temper. Part of the reason for being fired at Kansas was because of his out of control temper on the field. Did not bode well for the school's image. I am not in favor of hiring him.

    I don't think his weight has ever made any difference.. Temper ? Probably so..

    To be fair, Mangino is most likely hungry.

    Head coaches don't recruit, they close. Position coaches are the ones that have make the calls, texts, messages, emails, and cards week in and week out.

    This is how OU could use Mark M. Hire him as an administrator in name only.

    Let him break down film of our personal and of recruits.
    Mark has an eye for finding undervalued lightly recruited talent IMHO.
    OU’s best teams have always had a number of these types of players starting on the team.
    Let Mark make recommendations to the staff, but leave the coaching duties up the rest of the staff.

    You still have Josh calling plays ? You still have the same coaches doing what they haven't been doing very well..

    Mangino wasn't the problem, Hybl was. Heupel isn't the problem, Jones was. At least I hope that's the case or we be f'ed next season.

    If Landry was the problem and our 5 million dollar coach didn't know that and a bunch of our fans did we are f'ed anyway.

    Heupel and any other offensive coach are the problems. Why doesn't Millard touch the ball more? Who our we offensively? We do not do anything great on offense. We do some good things, but when it comes down to the nut cutting we 52 all over the field! I will be willing to bet that Heupel and company do not implement any zone read or read option game with Bell. This would be to his strength and Heupel doesn't play to his teams strengths. See Millard.

    For some reason even though I have posted over 300 times here, it's saying I have less than 50 and can't start a thread. I know many of you don't like the Animal but Mark Rodgers said there is a coaching change that much of the public will enjoy and be in favor of that will occur before NSD. Just letting you guys know.

    Mangino can't even wipe his own ass, how do you expect him to do us any good going forward?

    Oklahoma has lost a lot of offensive linemen since then as well and the reason why is Schmitty. Most of the time it has been for valid reasons though.

    I agree
    I believe Mark M could make suggestions that would get the most out of the offensive squad.
    I believe that our coaching staff would respect his opinions.
    But much more than this^ Mark M. has the ability to find 2 or 3 star players who turn out to be very good college football players….. More than anything else we need to find more under the radar types of players and they are out there. Our best teams always have them.
    We can get all this by making Mark M. an administrator. As an administrator in name only his baggage would not impact the players

    ND kicked OU's ass, so I'm trying to remember that you are a smart guy. Why would they make a coaching change before NSD? Then deal with decommits? That makes no sense and neither does Mark Rodgers.

    I have heard he has lost a lot of weight. I think he's still considered obese, but not near as big as he was. FYI...

    I'd take him as our O-line coach right now. If he can take Kansas to a BCS bowl, we could definitely use him. He would definitely make the guys up front tougher which can't hurt.
