Yeah, would like to see a link of some kind before totally buying into it. But if he is getting a promotion it makes sense. As much as we would love for assistants to stay put as long as they are advancing it is a good thing for them and can't really fault them for it.This is disappointing, if true.
My buddy said he saw it on GI. So if Burns is reporting it, its likely happening.Yeah, would like to see a link of some kind before totally buying into it.

This is the pitfalls of Coaching U. PJ Fleck encourage his coaches to follow their dreams. How about finding some experienced coaches who want to stay for the long haul?Yeah, this would hurt. Great to have guys advance and I guess overall it shows PJ surrounds himself with good coaches, but I don’t care for the turmoil. Hope the new guys we add to the staff will be hotshot recruiters. I wouldn’t mind seeing if we could get Addae to come back to Minnesota but it might be hard to get him away from Georgia.
Hard I think to find that. Even those who say they want to be in for the long-haul and build something get faced with a hard decision when another team shows $100k+ over their current salary.
I don’t want coaches who don’t want to advance. Being content as a DL coach for 20 years isn’t a good thing
Agree. What Kill had was rare in having a group of guys with seemingly no desire to advance their careers. Either that or they weren't viewed as good options that people wanted to hire.I don’t want coaches who don’t want to advance. Being content as a DL coach for 20 years isn’t a good thing
I liked the way our rush ends played last year and I really liked not giving up any turnovers on punt return and having strong punt/ko coverage. If we got a long term DL coach who checked all of the big boxes, I'd be 100% in.Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it...*cough* robwenger *cough*
In the end I think continuity as the coordinator position is way more important than continuity at the position coach level. Don't get me wrong, best case you have both, but as long as the voice at the top of the offense and/or defense stays consistent the team will be in decent shape overall.One of Fleck's issues with assistant coaches are some of his ties to east coast and Schiano. Often assistants have a draw to move closer to familiar territory. Also guys who have be HC's in the past are going to look to be Coordinators if possible.
