Instead of the common ideas of our new DC such as Rhoads, Casteel, Hopson, and what not, imma throw a new name into the fire.
According to Wiki
"In 2005, Holliday traveled to the University of Florida and became the Gators' associate head coach, safeties coach, and recruiting coordinator. In 2005, Holliday was named one of Rivals.com's Top 25 Recruiters, while also tutoring a secondary that only allowed 52.3% of passing to be completed which was 16th best in the nation.
He guided safety Reggie Nelson to a consensus All-American honor and to become a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award and Bronko Nagurski Trophy in 2006. Also in that season, the Gators' pass defense efficiency was fourth-ranked nationally and second in the SEC while only surrendering a nationally tenth-ranked 10 touchdowns all season and sixth in the nation in scoring defense."
He's at WVU now as the Fullback/TE coach, but as RR and Doc Holliday were born in WV, and played a defensive position at WVA, they have that connection.Plus he can recruit Florida and VA which RR would love.
I'd think he'd run a 4-3 defense, which most Michigan players would prefer. Even though he had a good stay at Florida, he also has had success as a WR coach.
And while I'm in this pipedream, lets say we get Vance Bedford as the CB coach, and Ed Orgeron as the DL coach and Jay Hopson at LB coach.
That might be one of the most decorated Defensive coaching staffs at Michigan ever. At the very least, we'd get so many good players from recruiting.
So, what do you guys think of my pipedream?
