Good place for this job jumping Sparty asswipe.  Working for his new head coach, who like him, also reneged after accepting the Temple offer.  They deserve each other.

That is a point.  But whatever happened to making a commitment and standing by it - at least for a year or two, for Christ sakes. 

And Miami fucked this up bad - are you telling me Mark Richt hasn't been thinking of retiring for a while and it just came out of nowhere?  Might have been a good idea to mention you were thinking of retirement when Diaz got the offer from Temple.  For all we know - Diaz might have accepted the job knowing Richt may retire, and knowing he was potentially going to renege.  This makes more sense to me than it just coming "out of the blue".

Temple made the offer in good faith, trusted him to meet his commitment - and got hosed.

You obviously haven't been following the board lately. Nowadays your only priority should be making more money and climbing the corporate ladder. Anything else is for bleeding heart pansies and needs to GTFO. You need to be prepared to go to work for the person who insulted your mother if it represents career advancement. Period.

Even if you're already old, rich, and have already held the position you're being promoted to.

Uhhh, what? The board's position would be more accurately articulated as "It's a business, so don't judge someone for treating it as such."

No one is saying a coach is an idiot for being loyal, they're saying not to expect a coach not to take a better opportunity just because you don't want them to.

Corporate loyalty is horse shit, do you think if he was performing poorly that Temple would keep him for the full length of his contract with them? Damn sure they wouldn't, so he shouldn't be expected to do the same.

Also, Miami is a much better job than Temple and any reasonable person would do the same in their employment case, just better be prepared to pay any training costs incurred or deal with burned bridges.

Richt is the bad guy there. He hired his moron son for a job he was completely unqualified for, then abruptly quit his job at Miami after Diaz had already left when Miami insisted he hire a real QB coach instead of his nepotism hire. 

It's just a bad situation. Miami put a lot of faith in an accomplished coach who was an alumnus, and he kinda shit all over that faith by hiring his unqualified son and then refusing to fix the error once it became clear that situation wasn't tenable. 

The only thing we have a good feeling Diaz knew is that Richt was going to stick with his dysfunctional offensive coaching situation, hence why he got out of dodge before everyone got fired over it. Everyone around that situation thought Miami wouldn't press the issue because Richt had done so much fundraising for new facilities.

It sucks for Temple but everyone at a G5 knows the score. They're not equal with P5 in terms of money and ability to compete. It's honestly less disruptive to leave after 2 weeks before you've really started doing anything than leaving after one year.

That's probably not really warped.  Seems like most people feel that way.  I think I'm the warped one.  Temple >>>> FIU because weather.  The hell with all that heat in the summer.

For the money Miami was probably offering over Temple, I could probably deal with it for a few years.  All else being equal, though, I'm going north.

I think that was the spin that uninformed Bama and Sparty slappies were pulling out of their asses.  Bama to soften the sting of losing a coach, Sparty to soften the sting of Harbaugh actually bringing top notch talent to AA as opposed to Dantonio's strategy of pulling coaching assignments out of a hat and handing them out to the same old losers.

Haa!  WTF is going on in Tuscaloosa?  I guess modern football has passed Saban by.  Perhaps the Bama faithful are yelling UNACCEPTABLE!!!! ??

And it makes me want to go listen to see what Pete Finebaum is saying...  Almost.  Not really.
