Too many differences to make that direct comparison. To start with, Medved has coached at a variety of different types of programs...non-DI, low-level DI, high major, you name it. He has also done it in different parts of the country...South Carolina, Minnesota, Colorado. Additionally he has done it working for coaches like Tim Miles, Dan Monson, Jim Molinari, and Larry Davis (who was Cincinnati's interim head coach for Cronin a couple years ago.) Guys who either had success or at least have insight at coaching at a variety of levels.
Geno Ford had never been out of the state of Ohio professionally, and outside of two non-DI jobs had no experience outside the MAC prior to taking the Bradley job, and with a much more limited coaching network.
