"Head coach followed up someone. I think Tony Levin Really whiffed on his first offense. Coordinator Higher and that they had a rough. Go Out of the gate. We've seen that. The leadership at Houston is incredibly volatile. To put it mildly you know the his last season. The team goes eight and five. Again then the next year Tom Herman comes in and he. has a huge season and then the next year, which would have been Tom. I guess it's Tom, second year he goes nine and four and has the same record in the A. C. Five three. What do you think? I think you're much more familiar. With the inner workings of the Tony Tony Levin regime than. but You. Don't see a lot of examples where first time head coach. Well you don't feel examples where the first for where the first time head coach who who flounders. Gets a second chance and redeems himself on his obviously the exception but you know if you WanNa, blame will must champs. At the time wanted to blame, we'll Muss Champs Florida tenure on him. Being first time head coach was like things have gotten much differently at South Carolina so I think it depends on how much you learn from the experiences you have, and then you know and I've made this point several times. You know in stories in also on the podcast. I'm sure is the most. The biggest aspect isn't whether you win the press conference on Day One. It is how well you put a staff together and sometimes and I think it certainly happened with all champ at Florida and it happened with Tony Levin at Houston If you miss a couple of critical hires. You're digging out of a big hole, and you may not be able to get out of it because depending on how volatile the leadership how much they trust you and whatnot, or how much pressures on them it's just. It's hard to undo that. Michael in Atlanta enjoy the PODCAST. Guys, thanks for providing us the great content, even though we may not always agree. Do you think there's a bias towards office? Offensive minded coach in College Football Reading Athlons, Recent head coaching ranks where they put Dan Mullen ahead of curb smart. or where you guys constantly but. The head of Kirby though Kirby's Def- is this the same person who's constantly writing in into to get on us about Lincoln. Riley out of curry can't remember though curry's defenses performed better than Riley's offense, tougher league, and he's beating them head to head Mike Leach gets a lot of love is an offensive genius, but defensive-minded head coaches appear to fail to get similar love especially up and coming coaches. I think Michael has a point here to some degree. I still would hold up Lincoln Riley ahead of Kirby at this point And I down loans a really good coach, but I don't know if I would put him quite ahead of Kirby at Michael's email. He does mention that. Kirby Smart has beaten Dan Mullen three years in a row Look, when I went back and looked at my top twenty five rankings of coaches this year. There's a couple of guys who are defensive-minded guys who I had high on my ranking, probably had them higher than most people did, and that's Kyle Wittingham Gary Patterson. But then I feel like there is. The, there is something to be said for its I. Feel like it's easier for the for the people who cover the sport whether it's the people announcing the games or writing about them to kind of gravitate towards Lincoln Riley as a play caller or Dan Mullen in this case as a play caller or certainly. Mike Leach I mean it's. It's a little easier. You know the the. The cliche is often sells tickets and I. Think they create a buzz with that, and it's just easier for people to grasp. Grab onto scheme that on the offensive side of the ball even when it's defensive. Guys I. Don't necessarily think people look at them. Define him as defensive guys now. Nick Sabin, they certainly do as I you know my examples. Gary Patterson and and And and Kyle Wittingham. Hold Up, then you start to get into. It's just not a Lotta. Guys right now. I mean you could put. We both had oprah on our top five I. Don't know that you know because he wasn't. He was a defensive coordinator for one season in the SEC at Ole Miss, but for the most part people unless you were a coordinator, a level I think they don't see it that way, but you can kind of go through the list here whether it was James Franklin or Jimbo. Fisher I mean there's a lot more than you know then what? Than what Michael talked about Scott. Satterfield fits into that category. Former OC I think there's is. Matt Campbell even though he's a defensive player, was was an offensive coordinator. David Shaw was an offensive guy You know Paul Chryst so there's there's just a lot of them. Just kinda piles well. Just look at who gets the Big Hey coaching jobs, right? Tom Herman Offensive Guy. Head coach at Texas Mike Norval, exciting offenses at Memphis gets the Florida state job meanwhile. Brent Venables still still still defensive coordinator is Brent Venables choice though but I. Have you ever heard of I mean? Kirby smart did get a huge job and you mentioned a minute ago. Will Champ got a huge job? I mean and it has happened Dave Aranda by the way got. You know got a really good job I think that's the difference right there. You know, David Rhonda. Link Bob Stoops handed over the keys to one of the most successful programs of all time to first time head coach because he's an offensive guru Dave Randa has been one of if not the most respected defense coordinators for years, and when he finally gets the opportunity, it's at Baylor, which is a good program, but not a Blueblood so I- Lincoln Riley Physically Air Lincoln Riley. Was There Ryan Day was there. That's part of why they got elevated into those jobs I think. Yeah I think it's a combination of there. Aren't I mean Jimmy Lakes Jimmy Lake just got the Washington. That's a really good job, and I think he never happens I'm saying that. Flip a coin. It's usually going to go to the just think it's easier to sell to the fans and the boosters. Hey, here comes the guy who who who put up forty fifty point game his last job versus here's a guy who's very respected for his defensive game plans, so I don't know I i. think that's a little of a stretch I mean. Pat doozy gotTA good power. Five Job Jeff Half Li got a pretty good power five. Yours is about you know. Mid Level Power Five I. Know, but I mean we're also. We also talked about Georgia and Florida and Washington Hurry Smart Marketing Georgia. Florida the most will most jail the one I mean. You GotTa go back to? Oklahoma hired Bob stoops as a first time head coach because he was Steve's really good defense coordinator for Steve Spurrier and Gosh I mean..

"So let me ask you this. How did you feel about yes? Reemerging in the has more bank rather than what they've done to this sort of thing this progression none of what did you do. So I think this is. A great album doesn't matter it's by bandits called yes. How did you feel going from that? Went from one thing to another thing. And you mentioned genesis and you had a favor period attendances but very favorite period of genesis although I continue to enjoy genesis until they got a little too poppy for me by the mid eighties but part of that Duke and then there were three. I was still fans of that if they begin to change a little bit. I think Abba Cap was the last one that I kind of said. Oh yeah they're really good but with yes. You know. It's funny. I did see the drama tour with Trevor Horn and Geoff towns from the bottles right. I actually enjoyed that. It was in the round. That is kind of sacrilege. If you'RE A yes. That's the album that you're supposed to not like Trevor Raven coming in and revitalizing them putting them in to the Music scene of that Mid Eighties. I thought was great. I didn't care it Keeping these guys active and out there you know they were still amazing musicians across the board. I even saw Anderson and Wakeman in how without Chris Choir. I the One and only time. In fact I saw interesting Grouper Wakeman. And how after Tony Levin had gotten ill and jeopardy? Lynn had to step in and replace him for a few nights and was up there with charts plane yes music. I wasn't a huge jazz or classical fan at the time and didn't realize that this is a normal thing to me. I was just like long away that. Oh my God. This guy's up there. I play yes. Music with jarred at the May each has learned this yesterday. Kind of back to yes songs. It's an album which I haven't heard in a while that it was absolutely really really loved to you think that the chops were enough that this is an avenue live album or are they stories about this. Having a Lotta Verba which was a common seventy practice. Sure it was a common seventies practice. I'm sure some of this was done but my understanding is that Eddie Offord. Who was the producer on? This and the engineer was their lives. Mixer on tour kept this pretty close and let's face it. If anybody could pull this off these musicians could I mean there? That fucking good. You know. I'm not sure they needed a lot of over dobbs compared to some of the others which was common at the time and I don't believe that that was really done a lot. I mean it is done with all about six different dates so it is spread out a little bit more than some live albums I think but I think they were able to capture themselves in the moment just because they're that good of course I mean there are a lot of musicians who he thinks that immortals don't and you think what's your problem with that that sounds terrific. Oh no no no no. Because for a fraction of a millisecond was supposed to play triplet. No didn't yeah. There's a bit of improvisation but not terribly a whole lot in there. They're still pretty much keeping with the songs if anything it's even more powerful than what you get off the record. My favorite yes aren't of all. Time is heart of the sunrise.

"In. Pet cremation. Out of that stems very very interesting story. We'll visit with him. A funeral for a monkey believe it or not that's all ten o'clock hour joining us now one of my favorites. Tony Levin used to have more access to you and your head coach university Houston than I do. Now. I had to go through marmot almost had to go to Harriet to get hold of the day. Well, it Mike. I apologize. I when you would you called, and I saw you text. I was excited to connect with you. And I'm sorry. It was so it was so difficult to get a hold of me. This is I think a really interesting story though. Because you you you did the coaching thing for many many years, and and you did with coaches football coaches, do you in all over the country? You hit the apex? She became the head coach at university of Houston last year with Purdue before that western Kentucky. I mean, a lot of different places in in a lot of you. You've been all over from the NFL and then last year yet in the pit for me at the end of the season. And you said, okay, let's take a look at this. Maybe there's something else. I can do. And that does not happen. Very often coaches take me through the last few years of your life. And what leads you to becoming a franchise owner of a Chick-fil-A? Well, it's it's it's a good question. My question I've been asked quite often hear almost for the past year. And you know, coaching is something that I did as a profession for twenty two years. I was passionate about it. I I loved every minute of it. We had ups and downs. So we moved as you mentioned quite a bit. I look back and think of living in San Marcos, Texas for three years, and then the Auburn Alabama for two years, I'm interested in Louisiana for eight months, and the story goes on with just a little two and three you're stops along the way, and then we came to Houston coach university of Houston as both an assistant and head coach for seven years. So really a third of my coaching career was spent at the university of Houston, and you know, the last few years, my wife, and is, you know, Mike have four young children oldest thing thirteen and in coaching. It's to say at seven days a week every day of the year is truly an understatement. Level with this gun as you know with recruiting. It's it's day and night, and texting and social media in high school coaches, and parents, and certainly the recruits and then the during the season grind if you will of seven days a week and being at the office from really six AM so past midnight every day in it got, you know, just where for me looking at our children in missing, really everything. They've been a part of the basketball teams them better involved in music play piano or eleven year old now plays the saxophone. So the flag football the basketball soccer. You know, just I was able to take a step back when I was like oh from Houston at the end of the two thousand fourteen season. And again, our children were getting involved in all those types of activities. And and really say is there's something we could do where I could still do what I'm passionate about. Coaching round. But you know, being around people developing a team developing people, helping them achieve their goals and spend the quality time I'd like to with my family in owning a Chick-fil-A has allowed me to do that. You know, again, we've traveled all over the country. My wife's from Alabama. But when we came to Houston, it's a place we fell in love with and wanted to stay if we could so to be able to have my own business now, and we have over one hundred employees. I call them actually team members over one hundred team members there from fifteen years old sixty five years old and everything in between the chance to feel like I'm still putting a lot of the same qualities or characteristics. I had coaching to work in a restaurants, and then on a personal side being able to, you know, spend the quality time I'd like to with my family. Why is it Tony that that most coaches though, as long as they have employment will keep coaching and we'll go anywhere to coach. What what is it? So addicting about it. Well, there's a couple of things. And again, that's a that's a great question. You know, over the course of the last again, I'll say almost a year since I stepped away from coaching professionally and I say that because I'm coaching my kids like football teams right now. But I can't tell you the number of coaches that have reached out to me really with two things one either either. Asking me, how's able to get a Chick-fil-A franchise, or what that transition has looked like because they've been thinking about it, so long or coaches that have said, you know, they they give me a little bit of credit because they thought about it. But didn't know what else they could do. And we're worried about stepping away from from the game. So there's there's things that people say before coaching gets in your blood, and you know, there's a little bit of a rush when you run out the tunnel is one hundred thousand people in the stands your national TV. But you know for me, and I've I've done that I loved it. I have amazing memories. It'll last year by entire life. But for me right now to to the kids bedroom and listen to her eleven year old practices saxophone. I I prefer that right now two hundred thousand people cheering for a football team in do you find a lot of parallels? As you run this franchise. Are you seeing obviously you're still in the infancy stages less than a year? But but do you see similarities assured of a game on Saturday? Absolutely. I do and Chick-fil-A to give one of their franchises to somebody there. They've got a very strict lengthy interview process, and I was kind front with them from the beginning in terms of, you know, my my my kids would debate whether or not I can even make serious. I've not I. Great at making food, and I was trying to explain to them early on. I think I've demonstrated some leadership qualities along the way the ability to assemble a team and manage and develop people, and in, you know, hopefully, instill confidence in people. So there are so many parallels between what we're doing now. And again, I feel like I'm I'm still coaching house was at a meeting last week with about fifty Houston Chick-fil-A owners and one of them said to me, what does it feel like not to coach anymore in my media response was I'm still coaching every day at the restaurant and each day. We'll have close to forty of our team members working, and you know, there's there's different issues that come up in different. You know decisions we gotta make whether it's personnel or whether it's for the growth of our business, and and we've got leadership team, which I kind of see is my assistant coaches that helped me make some of the higher level decision. So there's so many things that. So into it on a day-to-day basis, and then just the competition. So there's certainly there's restaurants around us business around us, the Houston market's actually the number one market in the nation for Chick-fil-A. So there's there's our own competition just miles away from us. So it's I I knew going into it there'd be a lot of parallels to what I've done for twenty two years. And now that I've been in it for really right at six months. That's very very true while I've got you here. How did you turn? And how did the staff turned Purdue a team that had really been a doormat in the big ten in turn it right away last year into a bowl team and this year contending in the big ten west. Well, first of all, I think it starts with Jeff Brown the head coach there in coach Brown, and I go way back to assistance in two thousand and three if university of Louisville, so our family, his family are very close in deserves at least credits at the top. So he. He is a player coach, but he is a football coach and he comes in. And he knows offenses. I'm sure most people are where he calls the plays offensively who studies defense and he's got tremendous knowledge in the kicking game in the players by in to him. So I joined the staff at western Kentucky, and he'd already been there two years. And as soon as I ride I noticed the the buy in that the players had for his culture if you will. And then once we got the Purdue, you know, he the players can tell that he genuinely cares about him. And he really demands, hey, if nothing else we're gonna play hard when I leave the scoreboard. We're going to have a great plan in all three phases. And if we do that, we'll look up when the game's over we'll win more than we live, and that's really what they've done. And you know, when you look back at some of the experts when they look at recruiting rankings over the year. I think what the former staff Purdue might have been last in the big ten in four or five years. Leading up to coach Brown and staff taking over now, you're gonna half ago, and you know, offensively he does some things where they're gonna have a chance to be aggressive and put points on the board. So with the big ten kind of being a little bit more run oriented. It'd be able to stop the run and be a little bit more low scoring when when he's able to put points on the board gives them a chance every week last question how you know one of the things that you mentioned the scoreboard, and it's easy to define yourself in football because on Saturday you figure out if their game plan worked or not sometimes in retail or operation like Chick-fil-A. You don't know from day to day, you get a number for sure, you know, your your sales your gross sales. But you're not quite sure if that number was an aberration. Where did you just happen to be? The high school band stopped by with hundred people. I mean, there's lots of variables you that. You don't control how how do you define winning and losing in the retail industry, so to speak versus football, another excellent question. Yeah. So in in one thing that's different is for me. At least is the pace of this because we're open every day during the week but Sunday's AAA closed on Sundays. And it's and it's game day every day. So the Chick-fil-A especially in the Houston market, and and they're getting up into the twin cities. I know there's a couple of them. Yes. But but it's very popular here. And now, you're exactly right. I don't I don't measure our success by sales certainly some owners of of of any business measure their success by sales. But for now, it's it's I want our guest to have a great experience. Enjoy the food. You know, it is quick service. So they don't want to be waiting very long for to get their meal if you will. But you know, if they have a good experience, they give us positive feedback. That's what we're striving for. And we think you know, the rest will take care of itself. I miss you. Big fella down there does that mean. I might get a free fry at least if I come in. No, you know, we'll have a special day. Fries free. Yes. Let me know if you're coming down, and I will let you know the next time we're back in the twin cities. I promise you promised me. Always good. This is good.
