Here's a nice update on Coach Roof's new gig as a Gopher:
He's an impressive guy, but has another difficult job ahead of him. As a native Gopher, I wish him the best of luck!
Nice guy, good recruiter, tried hard but was way over his head as a HC. Best of luck Ted!

Hopefully Ted was the last of the Duke head coaches who never had a real chance to succeed.
Based on what we hear from Cutcliffe, it sounds like the players never learned how to work hard on a consistent basis. It sounds like the bar was quite low in a number of areas. I don't think that any lack of facilities or administrative commitment can be pegged as the cause for that problem. Except to the extent that it kept us from hiring good coaches.
