A big reason he did this instead of promoting Ambrose, is so there was room on the staff for Bob "Emperor Palpatine" Foster to be a full-time employee with no recruiting responsibility. Now, he's got his mentor Foster with postition responsibility that limits him to only coaching Beatty, Rippy and Ahles. Brilliant. The first major development that came out of Dan Hawkins becoming the WR position coach is that Josh Smith decided to transfer. The second major development has been a depth chart rotation (position groupings) that has resulted in Espinoza and Ebner getting more opportunities than Simmons or Wright. Speaking of Simmons, he was considered by Kiesau to be the gem of this year's WR recruiting class and a guy that needed to contribute this year. He has gotten worse since Hawkins has been coaching him. In general, our WRs have gotten worse this season. They drop passes, they don't gain separation, they run the wrong routes, they jog around completely clueless when the initial play breaks down, and the 1st year guys are still so confused and worried about making a mistake that they play slow. Dan's decision to coach the WRs himself has been an unmitigated disaster. He's so bad as a WR position coach, it makes his head coaching look decent by comparison (and it's taken away from his ability to fully dedicate himself to the HC roll). Epic FAIL.
