Today was the first day I'd heard his name.
After watching those highlights, I'm sure it won't be the last.
Not incredibly "imposing" but Damn does he have a knack for the ball, and forcing things to happen.
I know it was against high schoolers, but that reel is the only thing I've seen close to...

That would be warranted in it's own right, but he brings an upgrade at DL coaching, and a big upgrade in recruiting.
It makes Steele a little less "WTF".

Pendergast/O or Shoop/O would've been much better, but hopefully the recruiting aspect will overcome.

There is at least hope..

[quote]If so, is it a good idea. Especially when recruiting has not really been Les' issue.[/quote]
Look. I know an average of the 6/7 ranked class seems good on the surface.
But not when there are 2 teams in our division ahead.
It's like saying losing in OT doesn't really matter.

[quote]Yes, the Defense let you down in 2013, but it was the only reason you were in the other two games.[/quote]
I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you.
Coaches can be good coaches and lose games and coaches can be bad coaches and win games.
