I almost went with...

On his way to and from seeing his wife and kids.

...or maybe...

For most men being on the road a lot means spending time away from their wife and kids.  Rush is the rare individual that requires it.

But yours is better.

WDE!

The battered wife syndrome people have with regards to Urban Meyer and Hugh Freeze is baffling. Winning does not cover up toxic personalities.

Who did Hugh Freeze batter or cover up for

OL and OL coaches are the smartest of the group. Obviously, there are outliers, but generally it's true. Grimes is Pittman at Arky with panache.  He is very adept and smooth with power and money and can read and work a room beautifully. Also, he has a substantial network to pull from.

 

Here is his Baylor profile. Pay specific attention to his offensive numbers and recruiting prowess.

 

15 minutes ago, :

Jeff Grimes serves as Baylor’s offensive coordinator and tight end coach. He joined Dave Aranda’s staff in January 2021. A 29-year coaching veteran, Grimes made an instant splash in Waco as he was one of five assistant coaches up for the Frank Broyles Award, which honors the nation’s top assistant, for a second-straight season.

 

In 2021 Grimes, a native of Garland, Texas, brought his “RVO” philosophy to Waco. The “Reliable Violent Offense” is an attacking, multiple-formation offense that runs a few plays in many ways with as much misdirection as any team in the country.

 

Under his guidance, the Bears’ offense ranked 10th nationally with 5.37 yards per rush and 30th nationally with 6.32 yards per play. BU increased its rushing production by 129 yards per game over the 2020 season, raising its rushing average from 90.3 yards per game (123rd nationally) to 219.3 yards per game (10th nationally).

 

Grimes also helped Baylor senior running back Abram Smith to a monster senior year, ranking among the nation’s best in yards per carry (14th, 6.23), total rushing (5th, 1,601), and rushing touchdowns (tied for 39th, 12). Ben Sims (361 yards, 6 TDs) and Tyquan Thornton (948 yards, 10 TDs) each had career years for the Bears as well.

 

Offensive Lineman Connor Galvin was named the Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year. Smith and Sims made their way onto the All-Big 12 Second Team, while Gerry Bohanon (QB), Jacob Gall (OL), Xavier Newman-Johnson (OL), Sims (TE) and R.J. Sneed (WR) made All-Big 12 Honorable Mention.

 

Prior to coming to Baylor, Grimes directed a high-powered offense at BYU in 2020 that finished its season ranked in the top-15 of 10 different statistical categories, including scoring (3rd, 43.5 ppg), total offense (7th, 522.2 ypg) and passing offense (8th, 332.1 ppg).

 

With Grimes at the helm, the 2020 BYU Cougars tied for the national lead in yards per play at 7.84, and led all of FBS in plays of 30 or more yards with 45. Overall, BYU scored 40 or more points nine times in 12 games.

 

Under Grimes’ leadership, BYU quarterback Zach Wilson was named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy and Manning Award, as well as a semifinalist for the Walter Camp Player of the Year, the Maxwell Award and the Davey O’Brien Award. In 2020, Wilson passed for 3,692 yards, 33 touchdowns and posted a 196.4 passing efficiency. He finished the year ranked in the top-10 nationally in 11 offensive categories.

 

Led by All-American offensive lineman Brady Christensen, the BYU offensive line allowed only 12 sacks in 12 games, the eighth-best per game average in the country, and helped the Cougars to the fourth-most rushing touchdowns nationally with 34. Running back Tyler Allgeier rushed for 1,130 yards, the ninth-best total in BYU history and the eighth-best total by a FBS player for the season.

 

Overall, BYU had four offensive players named to All-America teams in 2020, including Wilson, Christensen, and wide receiver Dax Milne. Additionally, freshman tight end Isaac Rex earned Freshman All-America honors from The Athletic. Wilson (1st round, No. 3 overall, New York Jets), Christensen (3rd round, Carolina) and Milne (7th round, Washington) were each selected in the 2021 NFL Draft.

 

In addition to his time as a coordinator, Grimes has extensive experience as one of the country’s top offensive line coaches. Since 2000, 17 offensive linemen that played under Grimes have been selected in the NFL Draft including three first rounders (Levi Jones, Nate Solder and Greg Robinson).

 

He served as offensive line coach and run game coordinator at LSU from 2014-17. While in Baton Rouge, Grimes had three of his players selected in the NFL Draft to go along with nine earn All-SEC honors and four be selected as All-Americans (La’el Collins, Vadal Alexander, Ethan Pocic and Will Clapp).

 

LSU’s offensive line helped pave the way for four consecutive 1,000-yard rushers in each of Grimes’ four seasons. In 49 games as LSU’s offensive line coach and run game coordinator, the Tigers had at least one running back reach the 100-yard rushing mark 34 times.

 

He spent one season as run game coordinator and offensive line coach at Virginia Tech in 2013 following four seasons as offensive line coach at Auburn from 2009-12 that included the program’s second National Championship in 2010.

 

During Auburn’s 2010 national championship season, Grimes’ coached an offensive line that helped set school records for total yards of offense (6,989) and points (577) for a second consecutive season. The Tigers were No. 5 nationally in rushing yards per game (284.8) and led the SEC in scoring (41.2). Auburn’s 2010 team set school records for rushing touchdowns (41), passing touchdowns (31), rushing yards (3,987) and had three offensive linemen earn individual honors.

 

Grimes also had successful stints leading the offensive lines at Colorado (2007-08), BYU (2004-06), Arizona State (2001-03) and Boise State (2000). He got his start in collegiate coaching at Hardin-Simmons (1998-99), and also served as a graduate assistant at Texas A&M (1996-97) and Rice (1995). Following the completion of his playing career he coached at Riverside High School in El Paso (1993-94).

 

Grimes earned his bachelor’s degree in education from UTEP in 1991 and a master’s degree in education administration from Texas A&M in 1997. He and his wife, Sheri, have four children, daughters, Bailey and Jada, and sons, Garrison and Greydon.

I am not really sure why so many have chosen Lane Kiffen.  He does not like to recruit and it is showing at Ole Miss.  We need recruiters.

Some of us may not have realized that.  I know I didn't.

I honestly chose Kiffen because none of the names on the list really excite me, I thought (wrongly, it seems) that Kiffen did attract talent, and he seems to be innovative offensively, which is the best way in today's version of the game to make up for lack of talent while we're rebuilding it.

I don't know who we need to hire.  For some reason it seems like the list of coaches who would be considered great hires is smaller than it has been in the past.

IMO, Stoops' program building process is a bit slow for what we need.

This! Stoops would be a great fit, but I don’t think Auburn has the patience. We need someone that will generate enough excitement to kill the portal.

I'm forming an alliance with Bird.  I don't think we'll hire Grimes, but I think it could be another Smart-like mistake if we don't.

Also worth mentioning, the dude was smart enough to get the heck out after Chiz and not jump onto any of our staffs since.

Yes, they are flawed individuals like everyone else. If you and I had our personal business exposed to the world people would think we were scumbags too. Like I said, if they hired an Urban, they could put some clause in the contract to make sure they walk a fine line. I don't think Urban wants to humiliate himself any more than he already has,

Second of all, I don't view these coaches like they're above anyone else. Same with athletes and celebrities. I don't put anyone on a pedestal. Thinking you're going to hire Mister Rogers as a HC is just silly. Being a moralist is mega lame.

I’m liking Grimes, also. Been at AU before so certainly knows AU/SEC. Great recruiting.

I definitely agree with being a moralist in our own personal/business lives, but being a realist with understanding people with unbridled autonomy many times make poor choices. Contractual boundaries will help but close scrutiny usually is best path.

Of course, if history is any indicator, it will be none of these. It will be a hire out of left field that no one was expecting. 

Jose Mourinho?

Yes , yes it does. That’s why they keep getting jobs. UM will have his pick. Hugh Freeze will be back in the power 5 soon enough.

I don’t mind people being moralist but be a moralist 100 percent of the time. Don’t pick and choose.

do you not think that could be a result of where he is and maybe not his process? meaning, could he do build a program faster at Auburn?

i know thats a speculative/hypothetical question.

For those few that are selecting that i do not want a Head Coach change is that serious or not. I respect everyones opinion since I have no magic 8 ball etc, but if serious how do you think CBH can turn things around?

 

Just curious...

CBH has done nothing to prove he can turn things around. I want to win games obviously, but I want him gone ASAP.

I was think about that exactly.  Maybe he has proven himself so that he doesn't have to invent himself again, like Harsin was having to do  Maybe, at Auburn, he would have that natural, built-in advantage of location.  I don't know, but he is a great coach and I appreciate his approach.
