Remember sharp had a fatality

Shrarp asst coaches included pelll ford stockley all tough coaches . Year before- football program had a fatality from training . This shook vt and tragedy to the family .
Clemson needed new asst coaches since the existing coach inherited the legacy of frank Howard . It was perfect timing for ford and pell to leave quickly . Then the Clemson story starts with head coach fired and Charlie pell took over .then following season just before bowl game he takes the Florida job and Danny ford assumes interim coach . Then the Ohio state crazy game and The 81 championship . Vt realizes they need an established football expert and pulls bill Dooley from unc. That was a ‘buzz williams’ type of hire at the time. Watching vt through the years; I respect the institution so much in the effort to improve extend efforts and if not successful readjust and being strategic . As much as I have complaints with Fuentes it was a solid hire and a reach to broaden how to develop a program . We are experiencing some setbacks; so we need to allow the program to get through the fog’s more strategic therefore the cloud may take 2-3 years
