Schlabach - UGA Mulling CLE OC Todd Monken for Offensive Role


quote:

Changes are expected on Kirby Smart's offensive staff as well. Keep an eye on former Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Todd Monken.


From today's Get the Picture:

quote:

Schlabach is fairly well connected in Athens, so take it for what it’s worth. (I might also mention this isn’t the first time I’ve heard Monken’s name mentioned, so take that for what it’s worth, too.)


SI summary on Monken:

quote:

Monken is not a traditional “Air Raid” coach, at least not in the sense most think when they hear that phrase. If you watch his offense at Oklahoma State or Southern Miss it bears almost no resemblance to what you’ll see from Mike Leach and his disciples.

Monken runs more of a spread offense that is built around throwing the football, but his offense is more balanced. While his offenses always lean heavy on the pass, the ability to be effective running and throwing the football is what makes them so explosive. The threat of the run also makes his pass offense more dynamic.

What I like most about Monken’s offense is that he will attack the entire field with the throwing game. His Oklahoma State offense attacked down the field quite a bit, but on every snap you had to be prepared to defend every zone, short to deep, inside and outside. Monken will attack with vertical stretch concepts, horizontal stretch concepts and he’ll run some triangle concepts that are a big part of the West Coast offense.

Monken also attacks with the play-action and screen game. His screen game attacks inside and outside, and will go to backs and receivers. He’ll get his running backs the football many ways. In 2011-12 his top back was Joseph Randle, who caught 71 passes in two seasons under Monken. In 2015 at Southern Miss, his top two backs combined for 79 caches and 799 yards.

Corrected title - wasn't paying attention and had first name wrong.

So would this be to replace your OC, or would Monken be some sort of position/advisor/assistant coach?

Theoretically it might indicate a shift to a Co-OC situation, not unlike LSU/Clemson.

You copy the program that just won the title. What's wrong with that?

Hard to argue with results. You should be flattered, are you not?

Would be an excellent hire, he can run a vertical high octane offense.
