If we give credit for Rod do we assign blame for the ones he couldn’t retain? 
It’s too early to assess him. 

The comment was recruited and developed.  Those that haven't been retained were recruited/signed prior to his arrival.

The comment was that he would get on board when  Passwaters recruited and developed players.  Brown signed after Bennett and Passwaters arrived and played under him last year.  You mentioned he "fell in their lap", but I am not sure how you arrived at this.

Let's take a hard, honest look at this please. 

Who is going to sign with North Texas to play defensive line because of coach Passwaters?   I guarantee Enoch Jackson knew more about defensive line technique than coach Passwaters when they both arrived based on him spending 2 years being coached at Arkansas prior to coming here.

Now, if you want to give coach Bennett credit for being the pull on these guys (getting to play on his defense), they by all means...  Do that, and I would agree.

So when two studs decide to come play at UNT because they want to play in Phil's defense (in Brown's case... instead of going to a service academy where he'd owe 4 years of service afterward.  Maybe he didn't really want to do that, and NT provided a way out?), I'd say they fell in Passwaters' lap.   It's pretty easy to conclude this.

Let's see guys like Treib & Vailea improve.  Heck, let's see Jackson and Brown improve, and I'll be on board.
Something tells me he won't be around long enough to find out.
