On most hires, 4 days of vetting is long enough. We're not a Power 5 school, but we have a Power 5 AD and a Power 5 football coach. Pretty good for a local Baptist school.
Not sure you were around when this conversation occurred. There were some here, who were not happy with the Ian hire, because we "only vetted him for four days." Additionally, many bought into the story, that he was directly/wholly responsible for all the problems at Baylor. We had in fact, been considering him for a very long time and when the time was right, we pulled the trigger. It might be the best hire LU has ever made, except for one of your Oldtimer members.
There were also a lot of nay-sayers that surrounded the HF hire. Which may have been the second best hire ever at LU. At least there was a reason to question that hire. So far, it looks like a home run.
