Why would that be? Didn't he pretty consistently have top defenses?

re: Ellis Johnson offered AU DC job.


if you're already on the hook for BVG's contract it seems like it would just be best to retain him and continue the progress made towards moving to the 3-4. Rather than pay BVG his buyout AND the amount it would take to lure in Ellis

unless Malzahn just hates that D, which could be the case.

i don't see why they'd can BvG personally

i know it's malzhan's show, but he was running that team 1 fricking year ago. he knows all the guys on the staff, other than BvG basically

BVG doesn't run a 3-4, but I'd be happy with either. It seemed BVG had a tough time adjusting to spread offenses, but given the time I think he'd be really good.

Down to FSU/AU for him. Word on the street is that AU will be able to offer way more, though

Auburn has no talent on defense, that's their problem
