“I can’t tell you how many times we passed up hotshots for guys we thought were better people, and watched our guys do a lot better than the big names, not just in the classroom, but on the field—and, naturally, after they graduated, too. Again and again, the blue chips faded out, and our little up-and-comers clawed their way to all-conference and All-America teams.”
—Legendary football coach Bo Schembechler, “Recruit for Character,” from Bo’s Lasting Lessons
Do we want somebody whose heart is not in it but is the current "hotshot."
I think this would apply to coaches even more so than it does players.
The famous Michigan Man speech saw the exit of Frieder from mbb coach because he took a job elsewhere before the 1989 tournament. So Bo famously said "A Michigan man will coach Michigan" and Fisher finished coaching that season. Somebody who wants to coach Michigan and be loyal to Michigan is what the program deserves.
