Or Chip Kelly in 2009, Tressel or Carroll in 2001, Saban in 2000, or Stoops in 1999.

None of those guys met all of your criteria* at the time they were hired by Tier I (or, in Oregon's case, upper Tier II) programs. Yet, each quickly led his program to a national championship appearance and/or title.
