|Oklahoma needs Lon Kruger's steady approach.|
It is typical for a new coach to enter a situation and open fire. Press conferences, booster clubs, whirlwind fan engagements, recruiting, phone calls, more meetings, etc…
The game’s top assistant coaches now attend workshops and seminars learning how to detail, and basically survive, their first 100 days on the job while they, oh yeah, find time to bunker down and prepare the current roster for the upcoming season.
“Busy” borders on insane. “Loud” abounds, choking out virtually all quiet time. Coaches cling to their printed plan tighter than they do to a signed letter of intent and sometimes just seem to hope they don’t become a paralysis-by-analysis statistic.
