  • Bubba Wishing He Was A Jayhawk?

    Sounds like the Tulsa hiring process was limited by the president's desire to have a cheap hire. They couldn't hire any of their top choices because they only wanted to offer $500,000 (only $50K more than Zenger is getting paid). They ended up with one of their position coaches. Hope he knows what he is doing.

    from the outside, it's an interesting hire. However, reality is Blankenship is a Tulsa guy who coached at Union (and was awesome there) for a long time and decided to make the move to a college staff a few years ago. I think they're tired of the revolving door there and are looking for some stability. I suspect the money, or lack thereof, was really limited to gauge people's legit interest in sticking around to earn the position.
