1. Have more insight to his defensive staff assistants
2. Sometimes you get tired of a place. App State looks like a well run program, unfortunately coaches and family like a change of scenery and a new challenge.
3. It was also a guaranteed thing to make more $$$$$$.

Sloan didn't leave because he was ready for a change of scenery. He and his wife love App and Boone ,but he couldn't pass up a chance to be a DC under a head coach he has a good relationship with. If he had a choice to be the DC at App or move to GS he would still be in Boone. Not saying GS is a bad job, but he wouldn't have had any reason to leave App in that scenario.

As a program, it is ALWAYS better to be in a position of getting poached and at least having a chance to defend from losing a coach. Obviously Georgia Southern hasn't been in that situation for the last two years.

You also can NEVER underestimate anyone's desire or willingness to move on to new challenges even when they are seemingly entrenched in sheer happiness and showering in constant contentment with their current situation.

I say this in general terms but clearly Appalachian State has been a more stable "model" than Georgia Southern since we both left the SoCon, at least in football. But it is hardly a shock as GS in now on our 3rd head coach while Appalachian has maintained that core of their staff.

It will be an interesting subplot to an always interesting story, to watch the transition of both teams as they navigate this next set of changes, whatever they end up being.

I don't think it will be much of a change of scenery for them since they were at Georgia Southern prior to taking a job at App. I still think he would have a pretty good reason, namely the money. Sloan was getting paid $140,000 at App according to USAToday. Woody is paid $220,000 according to the same article. Sloan will be paid $250,000 at GS. Not saying the money is everything but it could be the cherry on top of a perfect fit for Sloan.

App has been insanely fortunate in that regard. I don't pretend to know the whole stories but Monken and Fritz were both excellent coaches and two of the best at running the option offense. So of course they were highly sought after (and Monken is CRUSHING IT at Army). That is the plight of the FCS and G5 schools though. Revolving door for good up and coming coaches.

The door will continue to revolve as long as success follows the program. Unfortunately there is no way to defend it with SBC budget unless you try to follow the Arkansas State model of coaching contracts (at least for HC).

Fortunately Southern was able to poach an elite Co Defensive Coordinator away from a powerful SBC program. Hopefully if Sloan can resemble success like Woody had at the helm then Southern will have a lot of wins under their belt.

Woody is a nice guy and obviously has a sharp defensive mind, but imo not the social skills to be a HC.

Since becoming head coach, Satt has had to replace very few asssistants. I believe it's been seven in five years.

In fact. Woody was his first hire.

All this commingling is making me feel dirty. GS former and current staff poaching crAppy does bring a tingle up my leg. Sloan needs to grab one or two more just for funzies.
