Hays explains the long, exhausting process of getting hired by Kingsbury
Posted by: Pete Roussel on February 12, 2013
Please excuse the sarcasm.
As told by Lee Hays:
"Kliff called. The first thing he said was, 'Are you in?'"
"I said, 'Yep.'"
"(He said) 'I'll call you later with details.' That was it. The next time I heard from him was about a week later."
Kingsbury previously worked with Hays while the two coaches were a part of Kevin Sumlin's staff at the University of Houston.
The rest of Kingsbury's staff includes Eric Morris (co-offensive coordinator / inside receivers), Kevin Curtis (defensive backs), Mike Smith (co-defensive coordinator / outside linebackers), Trey Haverty (safeties / special teams coordinator), Mike Jinks (running backs), Matt Wallerstedt (defensive coordinator / inside receivers), and Sonnie Cumbie (co-offensive coordinator / outside receivers), and John Scott Jr. (defensive line).
Watch as Hays explains the exhausting process:
