Stoops compared UK to Iowa in handling Coaches

Neat article from Orlando sentinel talking about the rapid firing and hiring of coaches going on now

Anyway, in it there's this

The 54-year-old Ohioan played four seasons at Iowa (1986-89) for a coach who was there 20 years. On Hayden Fry’s staff was his successor and current Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, now in his 23rd season.


“It says a lot about Iowa,” Stoops said. “That says a lot about the fan base and a lot about the people and the way the coach and the people treat each other. I can relate because I feel I have a great relationship with the fans here.

Makes me feel a little better about lsus alledged interest and possibly Florida's (if the interest is true). Sounds like he at least appreciates the places where they don't can people after just 3 or 4 seasons so we've got that going for us.

Does make me worry more about Iowa whenever it comes open if Stoops is still here.

If I’ve got a good gig going at an SEC school, I just can’t imagine taking a job outside of the best conference in football when you have complete control of the program.
