MM was the right hire at the right time. We needed a turnaround specialist. If he was going to stick around here, he needed to turn it around and then take it to the next level. He wasn’t able to take the program to the next level, but he did resurrect it from the train wreck it had become under Hawkins and Embree. Hopefully for MM, he will get another shot as a HC somewhere and learn from his mistakes here. Good man, solid coach, needed to move on.If you’ve been closely following college football for a few decades, there is always a bit of 2nd guessing the last staff. Even more so for the strength coach...it’s like the sun sets is the west and water is wet. I do like the things we hear out of camp about HCMT and staff, though.
I will also say that while I think former HCMM has a good football mind, his tenure at CU would probably be viewed much more negatively if it weren’t for the incredibly low bar set by the prior two staffs.
