It might be splitting hairs, but you went there. He inherited the OC as the same time he inherited the HC, so he was never an OC before being a HC.  As southcarolinaram pointed out, there is a correlation in that there was no national search. Perhaps not enough of a correlation, that can be argued, but certainly not zero correlation.

I agree that the leash right now should be short. Need to be on top of it now, so that it does not spiral.

He was still the OC, even for a short period of time. He was not the HC he was the interim HC. Like Jared.

Comparing the national champions and a coach with Alabama pedigree to a coach with Lock Haven pedigree is no correlation. You want to find a very young HC at our level who succeeded, then we can discuss, but tapping into a guy who played at Alabama and coached for 7 years at Alabama , to me, is apples and oranges. We obviously have one very pertinent example in Ed Foley. 

The leash is shorter because we were a perennial national power and have a very large budget and a any roll back to mediocrity should not be tolerated. Its been definitively proven that you can win here. The bar should be set very high.  And, I am just surmising but I would assume he is not locked into a long term, high dollar contract, which always shortens a leash.  That's what killed us with Hill and Pecora. You want a seasoned HC then you have to give them a long term deal. You take a flyer on a hot up and comer, you dont need to do that.
