Hiring Matt Luke was a mistake.
Keeping him will be a bigger mistake.
I know Luke isn’t going to be let go after one season, but keeping Luke and firing both coordinators isn’t going to result in more wins. It’s just delaying the inevitable.
Ross Bjork needs to hit the reset button and go hire a proven winner. If he doesn’t, he and Luke may both be looking for jobs in a year or two.
In the meantime, get ready for empty seats and an empty win column.
This may not seem fair to Luke, but maybe it wasn’t fair of Bjork to give Luke this job to begin with. He was an offensive line coach named interim that was basically a figurehead to two coordinators already in place. The NCAA hamstrung the program. The chances of this working were slim.
Now he has to go out and find coordinators that want to work under him on a depleted roster. Good luck with that.
This just isn’t going to work out.
Hiring new coordinators is simply delaying the inevitable.
It’s time to start over with a clean slate. Mike Leach would drive to Oxford.
If Bjork wants to change the narrative he will make it happen.
