What Does Kansas Need In A Football Coach?
The question about whether to wait on hiring a new football coach at Kansas is ridiculous. Kansas needs to get the coach they think will be successful regardless of when that time comes. If the pool of candidates now isn’t good, wait until after next season and let Emmett Jones coach next season. If you find your man now, hire him.
This hire is about building a program. Hopefully, Kansas is past the days of finding a coach that brings attention to the program. That clearly hasn’t worked. No, Kansas needs a coach with a vision and a history of building a program.
So you can tell that I don’t think Emmett Jones is the man for the job. That doesn’t mean that he wouldn’t be a great coach. If Kansas thinks he is and hires him, that’s great. But that is a risk I don’t think the Jayhawks should take right now. I would prefer they find someone who has done it before and is itching to do it at a Power 5 program.
Now, there is some concern that if Kansas doesn’t keep Emmett Jones that some players will transfer. Really?! Let them. If the hired coach is as good as Kansas hopes, he will get players and have success. The coach is the most important concern right now. Get that right, and the recruits will come. The best players want to play for a winner. If you don’t have the coach, the winning will never come. Kansas knows that. Kansas has been there.
Another Kansas Basketball Transfer
Kansas G Bryce Thompson entered the transfer portal on Tuesday. Thompson had a rough freshman season with the Jayhawks. Thompson dealt with injuries all season and never was a major piece of the team.
Thompson was a five-star recruit, but he struggled offensively with the Jayhawks. He didn’t shoot well behind the arc. He didn’t draw contact going to the basket. The best part of his game was the mid-range jumper which is used less and less these days in college basketball.
Thompson is thought to be looking to transfer to Tulsa which is near his home.
Broncos Players Are Skipping Voluntary Workouts
The NFLPA said today that the Denver Broncos players have decided to skip voluntary workouts. The released statement said that the players do not feel that the proper protocols are not in place to keep players safe. They are reportedly concerned about getting sick at the team facility. They point out in the statement that players have been infected at team facilities in recent weeks.
At the same time the Broncos are refusing to participate in voluntary workouts, they have the second-highest participation rate in team facility workouts this offseason, behind only the Dallas Cowboys.
Notes: Former Pittsburgh RB James Conner signed a one-year, $1.75 million contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
