First, find a great recruiter who has ties in the school's geographical area. Then, because he may lack some elements that make a great head coach, surround him with assistants that are strong in those areas. ASU hired Herm who may have lacked some of those characteristics(age?), so they hired Pierce to fill the void. The risk with that is the great recruiter gets a head coaching job elsewhere, and based on his UofA background, that was a risk with Pierce. So what ASU did is make Pierce head coach of the near future and I believe that will work. Regarding the new UofA head coach, there is no evidence that he can recruit.
