    What is Brent Venables waiting for?

    Any idea what job he's got his eye on? He definitely could have a HC job by now, if he wasn't waiting on a certain one.

    Why double your responsibility and quadruple your pressure when you can coach your favorite side of the football, make tons of money doing it, and be a part of one of the two best teams in college football?

    Judging by his sideline demeanor and intensity he's not wired to be a HC. Way too emotionally involved and animated.

    It's all about ego and control. I'm pretty sure if Dabo meddled in, or changed too much of what Venebles was trying to do he would already be in another job. Dabo is smart enough to stay on his side of the football and let him handle the defense. He learned that lesson faster than Spurrier did.

    2 mil a year and winning championships. Some just donít aspire to be head coaches. They are perfectly content with being where they are.

    Not everyone wants to be the CEO. I know that I have no aspirations in that regard in my company, though I might be qualified. The reality - I prefer time spent with my family to time spent playing politics for my company. Venables could very well find himself in the same position.

    He has a great income and has achieved a work/life balance that makes him happy. He may never take the next step. Not sure why he would?

    Although I agree, I will say Kirby was so out of control on our sideline, we had a guy in charge of wrangling him in with a rope tied to his belt! 😂 It seems like that might be something coaches can overcome when needed.

    But Dabo is certainly emotionally involved.

    $2.2M I'm sure plays a role in his staying put as DC. The only assistant coach who gets more is Dave Aranda, at LSU, who gets $2.5M.
    He's got it made and enjoys what he does.

    Also, his son was a freshman redshirt (3* and 4* LB, depending on who rated him) this past year so i'm sure that means he'll stay another 4 years...
