Doug Meacham anyone?

Recommended Posts

11242888.jpeg

Meacham is not getting as much pub as Riley and Briles, probably because he is a little older (50).  He played in college at Ok St. with current TCU asst  coach Curtis Luper who is an outstanding recruiter.  Perhaps we could lure the both of them?  He's certainly a guy that deserves some consideration as he is from this area.

4. Doug Meacham, TCU co-offensive coordinator: The former Oklahoma State offensive lineman has been coaching since 1989, but is yet to get his first head coaching gig. That may change this winter, as he's raised his profile a bit at TCU. He took over a TCU offense that scored only 25.1 points per game in 2013 and immediately improved that number to 46.5 points per game in 2014. This year, the Frogs are scoring 44.3.

In his one season at Houston, before joining TCU's staff, the Cougars scored 33.2 points per game. It's obvious that between his eight seasons on Mike Gundy's staff at Oklahoma State, and his years at Houston and TCU, Meacham has learned how to put together a potent offense, and he might be ready to branch out on his own at this point.

I would be ok with it.  But, is he interested?

I can't help but think that RV has ruined the interest from quality coaches.  I have to admit, I would be hesitant...  If we had a president to clean house, I think our chances of hiring a quality someone would be much greater.  But, I suppose I need to reserve judgement before we actually make a hire.  I have no-confidence in this department though.

So much this. Every instinct I have tells me this is going to be a reactive failure of a hire and we will be doing this same dance in 2019.

Hope I'm wrong.

I would be happy with Meacham as the choice because he is the one who calls the plays for TCU even though he is listed as co-offensive coordinator with Cumbie. To me that is much more responsibility than Cumbie. Meacham also has more experience in coaching then Cumbie as well.

I would be happy but at his age he may not want to go to a rebuild at a lower level school at his age. Besides, think of all the message board clatter that will take place if he doesn't actually move within the Denton city limits.

      Patterson talking about North Texas during today's TCU presser

      A former Texas Christian University wide receiver filed a lawsuit against the school and the Big 12 Conference, citing a pattern of abuse and harassment, according to a published report Thursday.

      Kolby Listenbee, who was hurt during his senior season in 2015, alleged that Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson and members of his staff "continuously pressured, humiliated, and harassed" him to return from the injury, the Star-Telegram of Fort Worth reported.

      A sixth-round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 2016, Listenbee claimed the harassment began shortly after his injury was diagnosed. In the suit, he said coaches wanted him back on the field quickly due to "their quest for a national football championship."

      There is no good time to bag on the fans if you are the head coach of a football team that just finished .500, with a losing record in the Big 12. It helps, though, when you have your own statue.
      Nonetheless, Gary Patterson selected just that time to charge forward and politely rip the thousands who wisely elected not to show up in the cold and the rain for TCU’s snore blowout home loss on Saturday to Kansas State.
      But, good news, TCU fans — the Horned Frogs are going to the Liberty Bowl to play Georgia. That should inspire them.
      After the loss to K-State, GP was understandably disgusted with a crowd that did not show up from start to finish ... kinda like his team.
      The announced attendance was the laughably inflated 42,746. Call it a major upset if 20,000 showed at Amon G. Carter Stadium on Saturday. And those people deserve medals for sitting in that muck to watch that boring game.
      “I was happy with the student section that was here. I wasn’t happy with the rest of it. Didn’t finish the deal. When we win championships we want TCU to be along but rain or shine, everybody’s got to be there. You’re all in or all out,” GP said. “I promise you, if we were in Manhattan, Kansas it would have been packed.”
      Start with the reality that there is less than absolutely nothing to do in Manhattan, Kan., and move to the fact that TCU is a private school with an enrollment of 10,000 located in a major metropolitan area.
      This transparent shot from the head coach at TCU fans is long overdue. It is also pointless. This is one hill not even GP can conquer.
      This is simply a numbers game. While the support has grown exponentially for TCU athletics, and specifically TCU football, since the school was dumped during the original creation of the Big 12, there are not enough alums and T-shirt fans to create a demand to consistently fill a 45,000-seat stadium. Especially when the team is average or bad.
      TCU attendance is the ultimate “It is what it is.”
