i've always been big on pry, mack. very aggressive DC. southern's D was top-10 in 2010 when he was onboard. the D hasn't been as good since. if you could bring brent on as HC and keep the current OC, davis, i think you'd have the right mix. brent knows the school, the traditions, the fan base. since he's a D guy he'd be less likely to tinker with the offensive side of the ball, too. the last thing southern needs going into their inaugural FBS season is a wholesale change with all new offensive coaches and a new O. it's going to be tough enough sledding as is! you bring in another staff and completely different philosophy on O and it could be years and years before things gelled.
sewak's got no prayer as HC. i don't care to see him back in any capacity, for that matter! i think his name's being bantered about because he's part of the CPJ coaching tree and everyone knows he'd run the option. whereas, if they go with a HC outside CPJ's tree the O could change drastically.
one name who's very interesting is oregon's OC. i can't say i wouldn't mind seeing that kinda O at paulson stadium! the eagles typically have speedy skill position guys. that could be a match made in heaven. but, they'd need to work on the passing game a bit more. good thing is the current RS-frosh, ellington, has touch and a decent arm. given the reps, he could be very good in an oregon-style attack.
