    Re: What is Brent Venables waiting for?

    Al.com did an article on this before the game. He says hes,genuinely happy in Clemson and says its low pressure and he has timr to spend with family. Would lose that as a head coach and eoukdnt work for say, Saban (or an sec team), because he would hate the work load

    I think hes a good fit for an NFL DC, and would have an even lighter workload (no recruiting) but he seems to enjoy college more, same as Saban.

    he was a head coach for like 3 years at NC State maybe?

    I also was never able to figure out how a pain in the butt like Lane came from a quiet and humble dude like Monte.
    I've actually THOUGHT the same thing many times...Coach Kiffin recruited me when I was in H.S...and he was always so nice and professional...my parents loved him! I did not go to N.C. State but I certainly thought long and hard about it just because of him.

    But they came into that game Ranked #1. And the #4 team BEAT them.

    Some people just don't like change. I found out I was not cut out to be the boss of other employees. I made what I considered to be good money and had a relatively good career. Sometimes you realize where you are is where you want to be.
    I have no idea if CBV is like this, but so far in his career it appears that he is happy with the job he has.

    . That 99% is waaaaay too high! I believe you believe that. But on the other end, we hear something different!

    Dabo has done a great job keeping his staff together, it’s a big reason they’ve won 2 of 3.
    Brent has put down roots until his son is graduated.
    I can't really blame him.

    $2M+ a year, in Clemson, SC, where that money goes a loooonnnnggg way, maybe the most secure DC position in college football, the HC stays out of your way, no HC pressure, neither he nor his family live in the HC fishbowl, does what he loves....sign me up for that!
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Re: What is Brent Venables waiting for?

    There is a report that the Chiefs just fired their DC and BV is being considered as a replacement. He is from Kansas. A lot more down time in the NFL, than College! Not likely to happen , but we will see.
    Venables is on a roll, but wasn’t he the DC when West Virginia hung 70 on them 5-6 years ago?

    I give credit to those individuals who know they have a good thing going and have all they need and are happy and don't go mess it up because everyone thinks you're supposed to keep moving up. Sometimes the Peter Principle takes effect too. Not all coordinators make good head coaches, but I could see Venables taking the KSt. job someday after his kids are grown.

    I would think that if he keeps producing top defenses he will go to a far better football school than KState.
