Posted by mmt0315 on 4/17/2014 12:13:00 PM (view original):I agree with the problem but not the solution. I think current prestige should matter - that A- mid-major ought to still be a plum job, but they do need to make is so that up and coming coaches can qualify for the job.
Ive been saying this for years but they need to change how prestige works as related to job hiring process. A schools current prestige should have no relevance only the baseline. This was if someone has built up a midmajor and leaves an aspiring DII coach or another DI coach could take over that program (if qualified) without the team going Sim and being ruined, thereby negatively impacting a smaller conference. Its terrible when someone gets a midmajor to a B+ or even an A- and leaves and the only people qualified are coaching at elites.
If firings are ramped up I'd like to see something like a diminishing requirement over the course of jobs maybe even so that a job someone might not qualify for on day 1 they do on the last day to encourage more human coaches. If said new humans wind up being no better than simai, fire them with the new firing metric and start again...
I would say that current prestige does make it a better job, but I agree with mmt0315 that baseline prestige should be used for the jobs process.
If the team has a higher current prestige than normal, then better coaches will apply and the decision engine can pick the best candidate.
But it still lets up and coming coaches apply to the job as well.
In most cases, just about any experienced Div2 coach is better than a SIM for a div-1 job .. why does the team have to die as a SIM coached team for 3 years before a normal coach can apply?
