          Like Riley is gutting this program by taking players with him, BV can pull those amazing Clemson defensive players with him also.

            There's been a 3pm press conference scheduled all day with Joe C, Bob and Harroz to discuss the situation. I would be more than shocked if it was to introduce a new coach.

              I don't see it, personally. The ceiling for this type of hire is Bo Pelini at Nebraska.

                I saw a pic on another forum of his son doing the horns down.

                  There is a picture with the Clemson QB and Brent’s kid giving the horns down on twitter in the last hour

                    I've always liked BV even when others wanted him out as DC. And he has been a big time success at Clemson. And I was always bitter that Bob brought back Mike and pretty much forced BV to leave or take a demotion to co-DC. BV was never going to stay under those terms. I would love to see BV come back as HC.

                          Not that I think it's a bad hire, but it sure feels like it's a rush job to stop the bleeding. IF TRUE.

                            I am starting to get on board with Brent V. Listened to Gabe and Teddy's podcast and Teddy swayed me.

                            Brent V is more aware of what we need to do to win a title than Lincoln Riley. He knows what it takes. He was part of our initial rebuild, which is one of the greatest ever. They took a few decent players, got a few more, changed the culture, developed players to their fullest, and won it all in two years. I realize it was a different era, but what an amazing accomplishment. He would have more cache than Kirby Smart.

                            Is he still considered "young?" LOL

                                I'll believe when I see it, but I'd be totally cool with this.

                                  Not sure this is the right choice. Feels a bit like getting the band back together/safe hire. Was the Clemson success his doing or the fact that Clemson is smack dab in some of the most fertile recruiting grounds in America and a crazy good DL for a few years?

                                    As close as Bob is to the OU program, I wonder how that would affect Brent's decision to return. Kind of like how I would not expect Heupel to return if Bob was still in any way involved.

                                      Brent would be the perfect coach to lead OU into the SEC.

                                          10 years from now he will be 60. If he still has the fire by then great. If not, we will be able to find someone else by then.

                                                The whole "band back together" description is how I labeled the Riley hiring (with the whole Leach air-raid stuff). That turned out way better than I expected (until now anyway). So I get where you're coming from. And I also asked yesterday in another thread if Venables' success at Clemson was because he became a better coach or he had better players playing for him. Until he shows up here and coaches, there's not a good answer.

                                                  I have seen some Tweets from former D players that were under Brent at OU that are pulling for him.

                                                    Maybe this will test the theory that moving to the SEC will allow OU to recruit crazy good DLs. Brent has been the right hand man of 2 different HC that have rebuilt their programs all the way to win the NC. And he has reportedly turned down many lesser jobs - maybe he was waiting for this one. I'm in.

                                                        It can be both, but need the players. Would need to bring that level of recruiting and "The recruiting tactics" that are used to get those players. Everyone needs to get ready to be okay with that. Venables as just a coach (or even Urban Meyer) would not be enough. Need the Jimmies and the Joes.

                                                                  Yeah, I almost hate to get my hopes up. He's a great recruiter and probably more suited for the SEC than Riley. I just assumed by now that he'd never take a head coaching job. However I just read that his son, Jake announced last week that he is forgoing his last two years of eligibility there so the timing may be perfect.

                                                                  Comment

Great coaches don’t sit in comfy Coordinator positions year after year until they find the “perfect” opportunity. Great head coaches are alpha types that gamble on themselves. I could be wrong, but I see Venable as a coach that loses 4 - 5 games each year. That’s the worst kind of coach. I would rather find a coach that succeeds wildly or fails so horribly that he’s easy to replace. Venables is the kind of coach that might lead OU into mediocrity.

                                                                    Comment

He's an amazing recruiter and has deep connections in the south now. Oklahoma is always gonna be able to recruit our state and texas but if we can get a head coach that can pull georgia players we take him. Georgia players that we are getting are players that Alabama, Georgia, Florida, etc. aren't getting. If he's ready to be a CEO after watching Bob and Dabo do it then bring him (and some recruits) on.

                                                                            Yes, but the offenses run in the Big XII now and most of the SEC are not the same as they were when he left. Also, Brent would be HC and not DC. Finally, I think Teddy Lehman made a good point when he said he has worked under 3 HOF coaches, all a bit different, Dabo being the most different of all. It's fair to say he has picked up things from all of them.

                                                                              Venables was supposed to be the DC with Mike as the secondary coach. Venables and Swinney themselves have both said as much. BV was just offered stupid money to run his own show at Clemson. He literally stated that in a few interviews. He said “Oklahoma wanted to keep me here and they saddled up to the negotiating table very impressively. This is just my best path to possibly become a head coach one day.”

He is more au Courant than Riley when it comes to winning on the highest level. He has been in the room. He knows what it takes. Riley can only guess or ask others. He is on the outside looking in.

                                                                                      BV getting much needed time away to grow as a coach and Gundy has served under Leach, Mangino (NC), Long (NCG twice), Kevin Wilson (NCG), Heupel, Norvell and Riley. I’d wager he can be a very good OC simply based on his expertise and experience around exceptional offenses through the years.

The one that was blamed for the 55-19 Orange Bowl, meltdown to Boise State in OT, the thumping by West Virginia in the Fiesta, and the loss to Texas in 2008? That one?

Was the Clemson success his doing or the fact that Clemson is smack dab in some of the most fertile recruiting grounds in America and a crazy good DL for a few years?
                                                                                              When Clemson won their first title they had average recruiting like below OU when stoops was here. BV has made tons of 3 stars NFL starters both at OU and Clemson.
