Defensive Staff Next Year?

    Forget good ones that resonate. If we were asked to name 8 current CFB OL coaches or be murdered, we're all leaving.

    That is really the majority of the battle.

    It's surprising how many well-regarded and successful coaches have a hard time with firing a shitty assistant.

    Obviously finding the right replacement is key, but even Saban doesn't always hire the right guy (e.g. Bill O' Brien) so just because Day had to fire someone he hired isn't as much of an indictment as an unwillingness to fire the under performer.

    Or Jeff Hafley, who in his one season was probably the best DC we've had since Heacock.

    For the record, I knew of Day and Hafley because they were both hired from the 49ers. In name, anyway. Day did well in helping to steady a hard broken Kaepernick as a passer for one season. Hafley's DB crews in SF were nondescript.

    All I know is Alabama has an ex-NFL head coach (Doug Marrone) coaching OL. Crazy how stacked Lil Nicky gets his staff.

    Marrone performed poorly this season and is likely being told to move on. Bama fans hated him.

    Fair point. And it was probably Barnes working closely with the DBs more than Coombs

    Yeah. All that talk about a new staff is nice. But my main question is: will they be playing music at practice 8D

    Always the tough questions!

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    I genuinely don’t know. It could’ve reverted back after Barnes assumed playcalling duties. Coombs could’ve been basically DB coach from week 3 on.

    I don’t know what this staff can do but I knew the last one had become a train wreck. Recruiting I’m not worried about the kids we were getting weren’t working. I want players who can play defense not run sprints and push iron.

    And people laugh when I suggested Bowles at DC, Reid at OC, and McVay as QB coach.

    Does Mark Pantoni's tweet that all 11 coaches are recruiting today mean the changes are complete?

    For those worrying about the recruiting prowess of the new coaches because they don't have a 247 page full of 4 and 5stars. Check out Jeff Hafley. Take out the kidd he recruited while at OSU and he was a regional coach who recruited NJ kids to Rutgers and Pitt. And only had 4 4star kids that he ever landed before taking the OSU job. And when you look then, he looks like a superstar! The OSU name will talk for itself, and the coach just needs to lay out his plans for that recruit, how they will succeed after their football career is over. And coaches from the NFL can certainly show kids how to make it to that level.

    There is more to it than that or nearly every coach ever brought in to sell the OSU brand would have similar results in recruiting. They do not.

    I do agree that there is no way to know until they get going.

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    Actually, no. Both Urbs and Tress had issues with that, so Day's holding on to coaches was nothing new.
