    Schiano/Grinch didn't "work" because one or both didn't want it to work. Grinch has expressed his desire to "run the whole thing" which brings up the question; What was he promised? I doubt he was promised to immediately "run the whole defense" so maybe it was dependent on Schiano leaving?

    This is pure speculation on my part, but my guess is he came in under the assumption Schiano would likely be moving on following 2018 with him taking over DC duties under Urban in 2019. Then, Urban retires and Day takes over. Grinch being an "Urban guy" wasn't given any assurances by Day that he would become his DC, or Day flat said "look for other opportunities" after the miserable 2018 defensive performance. So, OU it was.

    If so, he found a really great opportunity:

    Oklahoma finished 112th in YPG. That's a lot of money for a bar that has been set incredibly low.

    Granted OSU wasn't a whole lot better.

    His recruiting noneffort makes me think it went South before that. Maybe he thought Schiano was gone and then they had a poor working relationship.
    Either way, thinking he mailed it in this year. Maybe he comes out gun blazing at OU and proves he's really good, or maybe he has some more learning to do about collaboration at big time programs vs being a big fish at a small school.

    Hell yeah he mailed it in... professionals don't mail it in. They suck it up and get to work.

    Disappointed to say the least.
