    With the recent Bobby Pertrino hire it got me thinking.

    Could Jason Garrett be a good college coach?

    I honestly don't know why I thought of Garrett when I heard the Petrino news. I really don't tbh.

    But I did, so the question still remains.
    Could Garrett coach at a D1 college?
    Is Garrett even charismatic enough to attract top recruits?
    Do you wish Texas, Penn State and Louisville asked these same questions weeks ago?

    I think he could. Jim Tressel wasn't exactly captivating and has the same demeanor as JG. He's a good character sell to fans and alumni and would never embarrass your program. Also college is much more pass happy with spread offenses and game management is a little easier.

    Yes -- I do and he just might someday and If so I will root for him. I'm just not sold on the present -- yet.

    No. I'm not a Garrett hater but I've come to the realization that him not coming up through the traditional ranks and learning all aspects of the game have left him inept and therefore unable to adjust his gameplan or even implement a good one. His lack of knowledge,that many head coaches have, prevented him from insisting on any sort of defensive changes during the season.

    Maybe he'll prove me wrong but I feel him being around another year is another of Jerry's desperate attempts to get credit for building a team. I truly hope I'm wrong. It was 4 years ago we had out last playoff win. It's beyond discouraging.

    I'm not a Garrett fan at all and think even at a college level he would make game management mistakes BUT his process comes from Saban and Saban 's process works in college, didn't the pros. So maybe he could be. Not saying he would be a Saban. Saying he uses same philosophy that works in that league vs pros

    That would get a college fan base/alumni to reinstate its faith in the program.........?

    As long as he doesn't coach at texas. Let him coach at tcu smu or OU for all I care (not that stoops would leave or is a bad coach)

    If you were a 20 year old college athlete, would you ever listen to this guy?

    Not sure. He would have to prove he could recruit blue-chip talent. Maybe he could start at a small school and work his way up.

    He has been in the Cowboys training program for coaches & that has to count for something.

    Put that on your resume & people are impressed! :confused:

    There are 125 D-1 Colleges. Presbyterian College in SC is the smallest of them all with a football team. Maybe his training should start there.

    Garrett could coach at a college like Princeton or Harvard where winning isn't the goal. I say this in a good way (even though I think very little of Garrett as an NFL HC) because I think Garrett is too honest a guy to coach at a big-time college. To coach college football at a big university these days, you have to be able to turn a blind eye to the money, drugs, and women being offered to the stars for performance. I would love to see some undercover SEC college recruiting by the boosters and the coaches. It would be hilarious. It would alsdo kill college football.

    Was willing to give Garrett a chance, he's had that on an NFL level, my mistake.

    I think college football is the much better destination for him. He is "safe" and has a clean image, ADs would love that. A team full of RKGs, parents of recruits would love him. It would have to be at a school with higher academic standards than the norm though.
