That constantly blows my mind. Spurrier was basically a GOD at Florida. I never understood what he was thinking leaving that job for the NFL.

I agree - that is why I qualified that any coach that "really wants" to coach in the NFL ...

most of them are not really suited for coaching at the big boy level anyway and are very happy where they are
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

Jay & Sean are going to make it happen ... "He has the ability and the desire, he just has to do it.” - J Gruden

Franklin could be the best kept secret in coaching. He comes off as a winner and to me that goes along way in getting his players to respond and believe in what they are trying to accomplish. I would not be disappointed at all if they gave him a shot and then he could get a very solid OC and DC as well.
Keeping the Faith in Indy!!!!

Looks like an interesting choice and I've seen a couple teams interested in him. I'm glad they're talking to him.

I would think that one of the reasons would be the recruiting aspect of college football. I imagine that the traveling, stress, having to kiss up to high school coaches/"advisors", etc., that is involved in recruiting takes its toll on coaches. Your keeping your job is basically dependent on the decisions that 17 and 18-year old kids are making. Obviously with the NFL you have other issues of dealing with high paid athletes, but I imagine the recruiting gets real old after a while. I'm sure there's other reasons but I could see this being one of them.
Suck and Luck

He was making around $2 million per year at UF and here he made $5 million.

also, dealing with boosters that think their money can buy anything. And ncaa rules violations at every door step...theres pros and cons to both I guess

No, we haven't seen that.
