It's insane how everything looked great when we were winning the first two years but it was falling apart in the places we can't see as fans.

Mullen being an ego manic caused this but I'm still worried about Napier. The Sharkhumper was on the Bama staff and we see how that played out.

Ego mania is common trait in football coaches so it's hard to judge when it goes too far, especially from the outside. By all accounts, Napier is a good dude with a right sized ego. That's a good start.

I'm very interested in the Staff he hires. I think an experienced Staff is really important for him given his lack of experience at this level. Maybe he can lean on Spurrier and Stoops for advice? I like what Harsin did at Auburn.

Looks like Napier really likes his RB coach so that doesn't bode well for Knox who I thought was unfairly criticized by clueless fans. Knox was a good coach and never lacked for talent at the position despite folks criticizing his recruiting. Knox is going get a good job whether it's with us or elsewhere.

Where does he rank as a coach? Mullen was top 10. Is Napier top 20? 30? We are getting a better recruiter but did we get a better coach?
