    I know it is a loooooooong shot but I am going with Orgeron, even if we could only keep him a few years. Recruiting stud in our footprint and a damn good coach.

    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.

    While Tini's NCAA work is atrocious.

    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.

    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

    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?
