I'm also quite curious to see who he brings in.
It sure seemed like he already locked up Jeffcoat (DL) and Lindgren (OC/QB). Clark (DB) and Baer (DC) also sounded likely along with the S&C coach he got from Stanford.
That leaves: RB, WR, TE, OL, and LB along with someone taking ST.
Ron Gould for RB coach, Brent Brennan WR coach, no idea for TE coach, Chris Klenakis for OL, and Bob Gregory for LB coach would make me pretty damn happy. And leave Baer in SJSU, that would make me really happy.
Yep, BnG. You have big time money, get a big time staff. Not just guys you are comfortable with.
Didn't we just have this thread?
It will be pretty disappointing if he brings both coordinators.
This is my biggest concern right now
Why is coaching at this level that different? Is coaching a team to 10-2 really that different between WAC and a low level Pac12 team?
Good coaches are good. Where they coached isn't relevant. Are all the coaches at SJSU likely great? My gut thinks Mac isn't considering a few but he is very bought into a few others.
ron gould is fine... wr i want Matt Lubick damn it
Lubick would be fine with me. He'd help recruiting in AZ and CO. I just figure Brennan is more likely because he already worked for Mac at SJSU.
Did you see what happened with Hawkins? You are also missing the point. The assistant coaching money pool was sweetened with the idea the new coach could go out and compete for the best assistants not to just give money to his friends. Clemson went and got Brent Venables from OU for $800,000 per year.
What happened with Hawkins is that the brains behind the operation stayed in Boise. If Peterson had come with him, CU would have been in a lot better shape.
Honestly, I think some of you people are way too concerned about "winning the offseason" with name coaches. Maybe some of his SJSU "no name" guys will become name guys. IMO, he can hire anyone he wants, he's the coach and should know better than anyone else what he wants to do scheme/player wise and who the best candidates to prepare the players for that are.
I think you have to give him the benefit of the doubt until he puts a product out on the field.
Just get the right coaches in place for us to succeed. If that is the San Jose coaches then fine. I don't need a "name" coach to be hired to give me a warm feeling. If you are calling for a name coach, then I've got a name for you to remember: Hawkins.
I am interested to see the overall makeup of the staff as well. The point BnG is making is that more money allows MacIntyre to target coaches he was not able to at SJSU. There is no way in hell MacIntyre got the exact staff he wanted at SJSU. Now he can at least try.
Maybe we can steal DeWayne Walker from Cal now
I was thinking Derek Mason :nod: That would be one hell of an upgrade at DC!
There has to be some way to get a quality coordinator that will stay at least five years, if not more. Continuity is HUGE in my opinion. I don't think you can overstate how important it is for guys to be in the same system for their entire college career. You learn it when you're a freshman, then when it's your time to step into a starting role at some point down the road, you and all of the rest of the guys on the field, know your *****. You can play loose and react because you've done it thousands of times. Plug and play. Mastery through repetition.
Misleading thread title, expected battle royale between Mary Kay and Avon.
Other than eye-liner what's appropriate on the gridiron?
:nod: I'm with you on this,WW. Confidence is a great equalizer - which is gonna be handy, considering it'll be a couple years before we can challenge top teams with pure athleticism.
Uh, don't ask - don't tell?
A quality coordinator who will stay at least five years? Good luck.
You know for the pigs.
Any idea what the timeline is for having a final staff put together? I imagine it is pretty important to have a finalized staff by the time the dead period ends.
Now that Mac-as-coach is a reality, I've cooled a bit on the whole Stitt thing, but the upside is that he would be more likely to stick around than most. The downside is, of course, that he may not be ready for the OC job here - gotta hit the ground running. I guess we'll see.
clearly, the new makeup of the staff is....
but the change is only cosmetic.
really can't wait to see who stays, if any?
Bingo!!! I never said I needed a big name but I want to know that we are out there using the money to recruit the best coaches that we can find. To win at this level you need coordinators who can coach and recruit. CU fans have been bitching about assistants since Neuheisel, I forget who the crazy DC was.
Continuity is just as important with top athletes. Show me any team that keeps changing offensive or defensive philosophies/schemes and I will show you a loser.
Just collegiate level? Or any level?
AJ Christoff, blitz or bust....
That is right. Supposedly wanted to change the entire defensive gameplan for a game 15 minutes before kickoff.
