Is his thing the triple option though? Or does he do that simply because of personnel at Army?
If it’s the former, that would probably scare away some suitors.
He is a protege of Paul Johnson, this is the system he runs, and you're probably right that it will scare off some foolish teams.
But the reason why is this silly notion that it's a system implemented "because of personnel". Monken has wildly succeeded with this system as an assistant playing with and against major conference athletes at Georgia Tech (where they won the ACC in year 2), as a head coach in FCS (including a win over Florida), and now at a previously moribund service academy.
The idea that running triple option is some little guy gimmick is totally irrational.
if a school is replacing a successful coach who has retired or moved on to bigger things, it would behoove them to keep that train rolling.
If IW can become a decent passer, he would kill in a triple option offense. (Depending on how durable he is I guess)
It is probably my favorite football offense in the entire world.
No that's the thing, he doesn't NEED to become a decent passer in the traditional D1 football sense. What he needs is to be is a great decision maker with the ball.
