Personally, I want someone who comes from and can really recruit the South, can recruit both sides of the LOS, can pull all the vested interests at AU together to follow his vision, knows how to operate in the era of the NIL/ transfer rules and is a winning P5 coach. As far as the integrity question, yes we don't want a bum but the word integrity is a relative term and takes on different meanings. In the first place, people do learn lessons in life so there is that.Then there is this.
Does a person who learned a lesson have less integrity than a person who has been cheating at recruiting for 15 years but was untouchable ? So now, players are openly being paid which puts us in a pro-league and it's a cutthroat business. Finally, if our coach is going to be held to a very high integrity standard then everyone should including some of the boosters and administrators in and around our program. Perspective is important.
