Does anyone think we pick up any AC from the recent NFL coaching turnover?

    MacIntyre,
    Has NFL ties. Has anyone heard any rumors about bringing some Assistant coaches from the NFL. Especially, with the rash of coaches that just got let go?

    There are a few fired NFL coaches I would take on college assistant salaries for sure. Lots of culture and authority issues could develop.

    Why all the hate? These guys from SJSU got there start there and know it's time to step up. You think Saban got his first gig at Alabama? Some of you guys just need to shut the **** up. Let this play out and the you can pull the string and bleed all over Allbuffs if need be.

    I have no problem with the SJSU coaches. I would have preferred 5, but I trust MacIntyre if he wants to bring 7. I was just hoping for a few bigger name additions to the staff.
    John Settle and Tommie Robinson are both available and have a good combination of NFL and college experience. Having a coach on each side of the ball with NFL experience should help recruiting.
    Embree's staff did not fail because they had too much NFL experience. They failed because they lacked head coach and coordinator experience.

    Tommie Robinson

    Veteran collegiate assistant Tommie Robinson enters his third season with the Cardinals and sixth in the NFL after being hired as running backs coach on 2/5/10. A 16-year collegiate assistant who coached in eight bowl games, Robinson joined the Cardinals in 2010 after working the previous three seasons as running backs coach for the University of Miami (FL).
    In 2011, Robinson helped running back Beanie Wells set career highs with 245 carries for 1,047 yards (4.3 yard avg.) and 10 TDs. Wells became the first player in franchise history to record 1,000 rushing yards and 10 rushing TDs in a single season. He also established a franchise record with 228 rushing yards against the St. Louis Rams on 11/27/11, becoming just the third player in franchise history to rush for over 200 yards in a game.
    Robinson joined the Hurricanes after working in 2006 as the running backs coach for the University of Memphis. Prior to joining Memphis, Robinson coached four seasons at Georgia Tech where he worked as an assistant under current Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey, who he played for at Troy State. At Georgia Tech, Robinson coached wide receivers for one season (2002) before tutoring tight ends for the next three seasons (2003-05). During the 2002 season, he worked with standout wide receivers Kerry Watkins and Will Glover, who both finished their careers among the top five receivers in Georgia Tech history. He spent the 2001 season as running backs coach at Oklahoma State where he worked with future NFL running back Tatum Bell.
    Prior to coaching at Oklahoma State, Robinson spent three seasons in the NFL as an offensive assistant with the Dallas Cowboys coaching under Gailey. With the Cowboys, Robinson worked with the team’s wide receivers as well as helping out with special teams. While in Dallas, he worked with future Hall of Famers Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith, and Troy Aikman. Before joining the Cowboys, Robinson spent time working with the running backs at UNLV (1998), four seasons coaching wide receivers at TCU (1994-97) and two years at Utah State (1992-93) coaching running backs.
