    As bad as we have been in the last four years (dead ****ing last in the conference). i think the D has kept us in games vs. the "Boise Playbook" horseshot we were sold.

    Eric Kiesau - Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks Coach

    C - Outstanding recruiter. Did a decent job as WR coach considering what he had to work with. As OC has produced two totally different game plans. CSU was a disaster. Toledo was a decent plan until the defense collapsed, but still didn't produce first half points (only 3). Can only hope he is trending upward in the OC role.


    Darian Hagan - Running Backs and Returners Coach

    D+ D Scott finally got to show that he is a big time back. The fact that he has spent so much time watching from the bench because he can't pass block, etc. speaks in part to his position coach. The need to rely on Sumler because the other backs don't know the offense, don't know all the facets of their position, etc. fall on the position coach. I'm not sold on Hagan.


    Dan Hawkins - Wide Receivers Coach

    D- - As HC or WR coach he is making the calls on who gets playing time. This puts Dustin Ebner and Jason Espinoza supplanting Andre Simmons and Will Jefferson on the field squarely on his shoulders. His coaching at the position basically gets an INC two games in and without Simas seeing the field yet, but his management of the talent is pretty indefensible.


    Denver Johnson - Offensive Line Coach

    D - The talent is there and healthy this year, granted they are still fairly young. They've been horribly ineffective at times, scheme issues seem obvious. It's early and maybe he'll bring this grade up, but for now his results are not good.


    Kent Riddle - Special Teams Coordinator and Tight Ends Coach

    D+ - Special teams have been atrocious in the past, but this year there is progress. KO returns have given good field position, Goodman has been a totally different kicker, kick coverage has been good, DiLallo has looked decent. Punt returns were bad against CSU and nonexistent against Toledo. His past failures hurt his grade here. As TE coach he, along with Hagan, are blessed with the best and deepest talent on the offense. Hands and blocking have been below their capability.


    DEFENSIVE STAFF

    Ron Collins - Defensive Coordinator

    D- - Something in his scheme screams "beat us deep" apparently. CSU came out attacking deep immediately with an untested QB. Toledo made our D look silly in the first half. Something Collins is doing is being easily exploited. I was hopeful he had made good halftime adjustments against CSU, it appears CSU actually just took their foot off the gas....


    Greg Brown - Defensive Backs Coach

    C- Secondary has talent, especially at corner. Guys keep getting caught flat footed and either allowing catches by covered receivers or allowing guys to run right by them with the ball. Not sure what is up with that. But he has done it in the past, gets some benefit of the doubt.

    Brian Cabral - Inside Linebackers Coach

    B - This guy can coach and recruit. Apparently he can't turn Smart into a cover corner or Sipili into Alfred Williams, but that may be more on the scheme than Cabral. Plus, his Buff credentials get him the benefit of the doubt...

    Bob Foster - Outside Linebackers Coach


    INC - Mostly because I have no idea how to grade him. What is his job? Is he a position coach? A backup plan for Collins? A support system for Hawk?? At this point the play of the OLB has got to owe as much to previous coaches (Collins, Cabral?) as to Foster. And frankly I think the OLB have played OK, but certainly not above their talent level (we've got good talent there...)

    Romeo Bandison - Defensive Line Coach[/QUOTE]

    F+ - Players don't develop. Hell, not many players even sign on the DL. Can't recruit, coaching successes are a SHORT list. The + is because Abe Wright had a nice season once. So Romeo has that going for him, which is nice...
