Now, he’s taking over an FCS football program, and you have to imagine his ability to recruit was a major draw for the Tigers.
FCS teams won’t ever pull kids P5 teams get, but if players think they have a better shot at the NFL with a former pro star leading the way, then they’ll give TSU the time of day.

Now, we’ll have to see how he does given the fact that he has no head coaching experience. No matter what the outcome is, it should be exciting.
