    Any one hearing rumors about our new QB Coach?

    I have no inside knowledge, but searched around for NFL coaches that might be available.

    Of the Four NFL coaches below and Walt Harris (is he definitely out or could he come back into the picture after Embree interviews others) , who would you most like to see in Boulder? I think I like David Lee, HC and OC experience.

    Richard Curl, coached with Embree.

    Kevin Rogers, coached with Bieniemy.

    David Lee, coached with Dorrell and may be available soon.

    Carl Smith, available and started coaching at CU in the 70's

    I don't know much about these 4 guys, but they have coached some really awful QBs the last few years.

    Kevin Rogers coached McNabb at Syracuse....and, despite Wally's imminent protest......interestingly, was Bob Stoops first choice as OC in 99. However, KR took the Notre Dame OC job under Bob "Mister Excitement on the TV" Davie. Stoops hired Leach, Leach got Heupel to commit, and so on. I've heard this story many many times from the step-dad.

    David Lee is responsible for Chad Henne. Just sayin.

    To be fair, I'm sure he gets way more blame for Henne regressing this year than he deserves. Lee was apparently the one that came to Sparano and Henning with the idea of the wildcat a few years ago, from his days at Arky. Hilariously enough, when Pennington had a good year and Henne had a decent first year as a starter, I remember a lot of fans wanted to fire Henning and promote Lee. How things change..

    On paper Rogers looks very good (NFL coach and has been both an OC and recruiting coordinator). My only concern is that the Vikes offense has been miserable the past five years under Childress. You could probably say the same about the Browns, Dolphins and Rams, but I watch the Vikes quite a bit and except for last year, when I think Favre was changing the play calls at the line of scrimmage, the Vikes offense has been ineffective and predictable. Run on 1st and 2nd down, play action pass on 3rd down (fooling no one) and then punt. They played not to lose, keep it close and then hope for a game winning field goal at the end of the game. Watching the Vikes and the Buffs has been painful. If Rogers is our man, I hope it was all Childress and Bevel stifling Rogers and EB and their offensive creativity will come out.

    Buffnik, why do you prefer Fisch over a more experienced coach?

    Shawn Watson.

    As a QB coach, he'd be pretty good. As an OC, he's a nightmare.

    Wll, if JE is in Hawaii, I guess this issue will not be resolved until he gets back, at best.

    Hey, it isn't worthess. Did you notice it has had 301 hits. Now, assuming that people only fall for it once, it gives a great indication of how many members Allbuffs has! Its like a survey, if you will.

    I heard a rumoe from a coworker today that CU was set to hire an NFL QB coach, but that coaches team 'backed into the playoffs' and he isn't available now....

    If the rumor is to believed, that would mean it was Jedd Fisch.

    34 year old QB coach for Seattle

    He worked with Jeremy Bates, so there is a bit of USC connection there

    Yeah, that's about the gist of it.


    One thing from the bio......"Following an aortic aneurysm, Fisch handled off-the-field duties for the Texans in 2003 with his responsibilities including opponent tape breakdown and game analysis." Is this stress related? Something to be concerned with in the coaching profession?

    Some guy started coaching in the 70's is available or on the list?! Gawd!

    I think the QB coach position is a good place to start in college coaching....does that mean you have to end there? Like there is no one else to consider?!

    Not generally stress related. Most commonly associated with smoking. Rare in someone that young. There are other congenital and miscellaneous causes as well. But it is very difficult to know anything else about his condition without knowing specifics - i.e. how big the aneurysm is, where on the aorta it is/was, was is surgically corrected or left alone etc. Some are high risk, and some are low. But if they rupture, you're toast. Luckily, if caught early and monitored or corrected, they generally have a good outcome. Nerd out.

    It looks more and more like Buffnik is right and Jedd Fisch will be our next QB coach. Dionisus1122's posted a rumor about the delayed QB hire due to the coach's team backing into the playoffs. Anouncing the WR & S&C coach today instead of waiting to announce all 3 together looks like we did not want to wait until the Seahawks lose. I have read a couple other articles on Fisch and he looks promising. Here is another article.
