That would be strange. Boise is slightly larger than Macon, Ga. The university and state capitol dominate what would otherwise be a backwater town. Moving to Atlanta from there would have to have major culture shocks.Another good DC to hire would be Andy Avalos of Boise State. He's done a very good job since hired as DC in 2016.
Yes!!!! I was telling my dad I hope some more guys are gone and some young dudes come in. Even if our DC is older (im fine with that) just bring in assistants who can relate to the kids and recruit better. Please and thank you!I want someone young. Our coaching staff is way too old. Need some youth
CAM was by far our best recruiter imo, followed by Owens I think.Personally I'd rather have a DC that was a gifted coach with a decisive scheme than someone who was rather generic and a good recruiter. Yes recruiting is a weak spot for us overall, and Roof may have been our best in that department, but we can't expect anyone we hire to vault is into the top 10 recruiting. We need to have as much personality on D as we do on O.
I like Tom Kaufman at ChattanoogaA lot of the talk regarding our next D.C. is in the Roof thread. So a new thread needed imo.
Whoever it is needs to be a fresh face imo. I think regardless of who we choose our D will be improved again next year. I think our talent has been improving and our experience and depth have as well. So the next guy won't have to wait 4 years to rebuild completely imo.
I'm not saying top 20D. I'd guess somewhere in the top 40. If the new guy gets us to top 20. I think we will all be able to say the hire was a resounding success. Here's to hoping.
You mean the next scapegoat to be thrown under the buss.
As long as CAM stays on staff, then I'm not concerned about the new DC being an outstanding recruiter. Sure he needs to pick out his guys and close them, but CAM can do all the heavy lifting. As @tech_wreck47 and @Eli said, we do need to get some younger assistants on the Defensive staff if in fact Woody is the new DC.
I really hate that it's taken pelton so long to start rotating players and keeping them fired up when off field in defensive huddle. He has done a really good job congratulating ALL the players who make plays.I'd like to see the entire D staff other than CAM fired.
