Todd Dodge To North Texas

Southlake Carroll's Todd Dodge is headed to the University of North Texas as its head coach. Random thoughts from my large Sports Brain: - I'm not so sure that the Southlake job isn't a better gig. - For a salary of $200,000 a year, North Texas got a bargain. Heck, the school has received that much in free advertising over the last 24 hours due to the coverage. - The Dallas Morning News had a good headline: "Enter The Dragon" - Dodge's last game at Carroll will probably be next week against Austin Westlake High School. His next game after that will be September 1st against the Oklahoma Sooners.

As a proud North Texas alum, I am very happy (OK, AMAZED) that we were able to get him. I hope he brings a few of his current players and recruits well at the high school all-star game he will be coaching next month.

I believe in the Mean Green!

I am sure he sees North Texas as just another stepping stone!

What's the odds that a FORMER UT QUARTERBACK can coach a win against OU?

Here is a qoute from an ESPN article that ran today from Riley Dodge...his son!

"I'm going to continue weighing my options," Riley Dodge said. "There are a couple of schools I've been looking at. But North Texas has to be way up there now."

North Texas will continue to suck. SLC will continue to be good as long as they pour the amount of money they have been into the football program.

Football is all about money these days.

The step coach dodge takes between high school and college should be pretty smooth, after all he is used to the hardest part of college football and that is recruiting. He has been recruiting for years.
