He got up to a high level and then sort of choked.

It was kind of funny that time when @The Sheriff created a thread about Slapperty McChokerton:    

It was a glorious day....

the alabama job was just as a placeholder while they were on probation. Mike shula took it and went 10-2 in his 3rd year and was fired. that place was a mess

Moore praised Shula on Monday for providing "stability for our
program through four years of NCAA probation" that ends Feb. 1,
2007.

Shula was fired after a 6-6 year, not after going 10-2, which was his only winning season in four years at Alabama.

I think Leavitt has done well all things considered. 

You may say....well how happy would he be with the DC job at FAU but he is only 3 hours away from his 94 year old mother. 

It's slightly closer than FSU. 

Had he stayed at Colorado versus going to Oregon....he would have made about $400,000 less for 2 years and would have still been fired. 

Had he stayed at K-State as a DC in 1995 and taken some other job.....who knows how that would have played out.

they were on probation

nobody in their right mind would take a job when the school is on probation.

Shula was a QB there and they still fired him. he has never had a HC job again.

it was career suicide as far as being a HC and Leavitt knew it.

Leavitt couldn’t carry Myers jock from a coaching perspective (all things considered relating the role). Just a reality. I like Leavitt but he’s at least 2 rungs below Myer. I think it’s safe to assume Leavitt considers himself to be pretty lucky and appreciative for all that he has achieved.

means nothing as urban coached in big boy leagues while leavitt  was mired in the minors

urban improved as a coach 

leavitt regressed
