I get everything said here but cut the guy some slack. I know he and his team are too good to be true but I get his thinking. When any of us mortals are making a decision like this it is done relatively privately but in coaching at this level, nothing is private. I doubt i could live in that fishbowl.

Coaches at this and probably most levels are a different breed. I am sure he feels his family is first but I am also sure as he said, the team is his second family. And if he quits and is miserable, it's not good for his family. Bill Snyder said as much when he came back to K-State and he's no Urban Meyer.

Could be, but another thought I had is that a lot of top names guys were being mentioned to replace him, and his current OC was being overlooked. Not to mention the bad position this put Strong in, having accepted the Louisville job but being a possible candidate at Florida. Staying in this capacity gives the OC and rest of his staff a chance to show what they can do, keeps Strong from having to deal with this, helps recruiting and leaves the door open if Meyer can come back.

Leaving the way he was going to was creating a huge mess. This seems like cleanup, veiled as a comeback, in my die hard FSU fan view.

Technically they only paid him $8 million (or was it $7 million?), although they do take a cap hit. Having said that, I don't think anyone in that office knows what is going on right now. - StingArmy
