Re: Josh Gattis

So just out of curiosity, what makes this guy so great? He has one year of OC exp. and that is as a Co. He took over play calling for a team so loaded with talent, that any play that he called was going to work. He has developed WRs into very successful players every stop he has made. Named 2015 bi...

Re: Josh Gattis

Gattis wouldn’t stay long. Haven’t we been over this enough already? Jerry Moore was an anaomly and pretty advanced in age by the time he was really successful. We aren’t going to find an awesome coach who will stay for 20 years. I’d rather hire a great coach for 3-5 years than a mediocre coach who...

Re: Ledford

I honestly think it is going to be Horton ... Would be a horrendous hire. Honestly, all the remaining candidates we know of are pretty underwhelming. Ivey, Horton, Woody... none of those really excite me. I really hope there's something to the Josh Gattis rumors. And to clarify, Woody wouldn't be a...

Re: Josh Gattis

How long until Satterfield finds a place on his staff for Gattis? I would instantly lose any inkling of respect I have left for him I’m getting there with the Ledford move, if true. Would be interesting to know the inside story there and why Ledford wouldn’t want similar money for a HC job over ass...

Re: Ledford

I honestly think it is going to be Horton ... Maybe, but he doesn’t seem to be the young, energizing coach with familiarity of this scheme and the recent success that I thought was a big factor in the hire. Ledford was a really attractive candidate that checked those boxes with great recruiting con...

Re: Ledford

Football scoop reporting that ledford will be following Satt to Louisville. Hope that means we had someone better lined up... Wow. That is surprising. I wonder if he just really wants to leave state for some reason. You would think he could get the same money at state, especially if he asked for it...

Re: Ledford

Gillin said in the interview he didn’t get a search firm. He assembled a committee check backgrounds and references but he has 100% say in the process Not sure what interview you're listening to but he clearly says they've engaged Parker out of Atlanta to aid in the search (5:10 mark of the intervi...

Re: Ledford

Horton ain’t happening My guess is that Gillin has Ivey, Ledford, and Bryan Brown as his top 3. I expect him to lean towards someone who worked for Satterfield. I highly doubt it is brown. He is already in Louisville and already said goodbye to the team. I think if there was a possibility of him ge...

Re: Coaching Hires for Other Schools

From the SB nation article on Collins to Ga Tech, looks like He typically has a 4-3 defense which could leave Woody looking for a job. We currently have a DC opening. Hmmm. I really don't think Woody would come back unless he's HC or AHC. even then... he wants the p5 experience sounds like he may g...

Mike Kent was blamed for Florida’s downturn under mcelwin. Really got in over his head there. Hopefully there was an observant assistant that knows sigrianos program we can promote ASAP

Re: Iron Mike gone

He can’t stay for the effing bowl game? What kind of conditioning is Louisville doing days before Christmas break? This one is ridiculous and really pisses me off.
I knew he was going, but I really thought he would stay for bowl game. He is a great motivator on the sideline.
Hope he shows up in NO

Re: If Doug Gillin called you...

Sloan Agreed. Aside from the fact the dude coaches for the stink, what makes so many think Sloan is the answer? He was a decent recruiter but don’t see what else makes him the most qualified to be HC. Ledford has better recruiting ties with his nc state experience and as associate HC at state . Ive...

Re: Brown & Ponce Gone?

And the downward spiral starts (IMO). We may hire a head coach who will go get some name guys from the ACC and SEC or even risers in those leagues. We just don't know yet. I hate to lose Bryan Brown but I have felt our play calling could improve on offense so I feel good about the chance to replace...

Re: Brown & Ponce Gone...

I would replace Sloan with Ivey. As much as I would like to screw Ga Southern as much as possible, I don’t want a Georgia Southern coach as our head coach, no matter how long he spent on our staff, and, he is in the same situation as Brown. An Oc with 1 year experience. I know he improved the defens...

Re: If Doug Gillin called you...

Tim Horton, he's spent the past 7 years doing one of the most difficult/high pressure jobs in college football which is being a recruiting coordinator in the SEC West. That would be a huge advantage for us. His familiarity with Malzahns offense would refine and add wrinkles to our current read opti...

Do not doubt the possibity of Ivey getting a look by DG.. ;) ... Also possible that Clark stays. Our staff may not get gutted the way we thought.
Guess or inside knowledge?
