The Utah St DC and the Hawaii DC seem legit. I just want someone with some fresh ideas that will be aggressive. The bend but don't break defense makes me sad.
I would like either of those. We also need to find a dynamite recruiter. Have too.
His defenses in NCAA are almost always in the top 10
While Tini's NCAA work is atrocious.
this or Kevin Clune for me
also someone who wants to "attack"!...while i understand we lacked personell its still not an excuse to play prevent victory defense in the first quarter!
Hawaii's DC (Clune) spent 2013 under Orlando (Utah State's DC) before getting the promotion in Hawaii. He was a long time LB coach at USU and Weber State.
I think he's a bit inexperienced but Hawaii did have good improvement.
I'd take a long look at this and really look around. Some very good candidates who may be able to bring some assistants with strong ties in TX or CA/AZ/HI would be nice.
I have to think MM would have started the ball rolling on this.
He should be available this coming Sunday evening.
Lol. If only.
Exactly. I wouldn't be surprised if he has already made the hire, or close to it. You don't wait around for something like this.
I suspect we may be far aling in the search process. If we are right in assuming baer was warned, bc he already found a new role. If he was notified a week or 2 ago, hcmm already has guys in mind and probably already started conversations

Mac wants younger, high energy, good recruiter. Per FootballScoop. Tosh Lupoi?
Manny Diaz (La Tech d coordinator)
Harlon Barnett (Mich. State secondary coach)
John Papuchis (old Fusker Dcoordinator, worked with some fierce d-lines)
Outside of the box

Seems like there have been a few good DCs to go this route lately. Wisconsin's DC was at Hawaii and came from USU before that yeah? Maybe we can back up the brinks truck for that guy..
Duane Akina - Secondary Coach at Stanford this year who was at Arizona for years.
Todd Orlando - DC at Utah State
Dave Aranda - DC at Wisconsin (if he doesn't get retained at UW or move on to OSU)
If he's available, I think it would work. I know he wants to be a HC. Maybe he's willing to be a coordinator again in the Pac-12. If so, sure. But as DC? Definitely as DL Coach. Definitely as Assistant HC & Recruiting coordinator (make Walters Pass Game Coordinator to make room there). But Orgeron is not an Xs and Os guy.
Wasn't Manny Diaz the one who was brought in to save Texas and then got canned because the defense regressed?
