He will have financial and all sorts of other support from the AD that will help enhance his chances of coming out of this better than before.
I’ll have to wait and see how it all shakes out to determine whether I agree with this line of thinking.
But make no mistake DD sits behind the eight ball today. He’s got an awful lot going against him. Average year (didn’t beat anybody significant), forced to fire his OC. Very difficult 2016 schedule. New QB to break in. Poor recruiting. Apathetic fan base. And the rival down the road beat your tail and managed to keep both Fedora and Chizik.
He’s not in a good position right now. It will take an awful lot to reverse course.
