Is age a factor for a National Championship coach

Is age a factor for a National Championship coach

Submitted by readyourguard on November 13th, 2014 at 12:32 PM

I was reading the article from Pat Forde on the Coaching Carousel and as he described Stoops, I started to think about the age of championship coaches.  Stoops won his title at OU in 2000 at the age of 40.  Forde described how Stoops (and Ferentz) aren't living up to the standard they set for themselves earlier in their career.  As we embark on a coaching search in the next month or so, should the AD consider a candidate's age (not in a discriminatory kind of way, though)?  In the last 20 years, 15 of the 22 title holders accomplished the feat by age 54, 3 in their late 50s (55-59), 3 in their 60s, 1 in their 70s.

How old is everyone on this blog?

I want to prove a point on my post on the "This is why you should yell" post, and every other make noise post/forum.

I'm guessing everyone on this board is between 16-50. Those are the people who make noise. Most people 50+ rarely use online, so it does no good posting "make noise" on here because WE ALREADY DO.

All the people who try to get everyone to stand and cheer should make up signs AT THE GAME for non-internet users to see. Say something like "I don't stand because I dont want buttlock, you should to0, it works".

I am 22.
