When we were hiring, the coach would go back and break the news to his HC and players before the "official" announcement. Hope I am wrong but if he wasn't going to take the job he would not have gotten on the plane. Just my 2 cents.

Jeff Grimes got on the plane. Paul Chryst got on the plane. If a dear friend of yours got a dream job and wanted to fly you out to discuss possibilities concerning running a franchise you both had a deep history with ... you wouldn't get on the plane? I guess it would be concerning how distraught so many posters would be on the various Longhorn websites. I think he's staying. Just my two cents.
Anyone who thinks Gray should not think of himself and his career and his family is crazy. He needs to do what is best for him. If that means giving up 650K a year to coach at UT with his son walking on here - then that is what he should do. If he decides that this opportunity is too good to pass up, then he should take it - end of story.
Hook 'Em! ...'til early in the morn.
And here we go again on another thread where Jerry Gray's decision has been made yet no one knows for sure. Amazing the power of message boards and those that post.
I love how some people on here say that he should stay. If they were in his position they would probably handle the situation the exact same way he has, which isn't easy. 3 years at a 1 mil per year, is not easy to pass up. Now if he stays, what does that say about him? That his dream of coaching at Texas is greater than any monetary reward he would gain by being a DC in the NFL. JMO.
If a bullfrog had wings, it wouldn't bump its ass
Whether or not he stays, I will wish him the best.
Someone for a Rival site just tweeted that his source says Gray is staying...take that with a grain of salt.
