Now that his season is over, who thinks Brady's brother, Jon, will give us a look? Even with Mattison, I think it's important we have someone in place to get commits from McClure and Raven (and Countess' confirmation for that matter). Who are the other candidates?
Jon Hoke isn't coming to Michigan.
Do you think we have a shot with Corwin Brown?
(Also realized I'm talking about a coach like a recruit, just go with it).
As long as Michigan has an open DB coach job, we have a shot with Corwin Brown.
Do you really think brown would come back from his position with the patriots to coach the same position at UM?
I think Corwin Brown is currently, like, the "Assistant to the defensive backs coach" or something like that. IIRC, he's not an actual coach.
So to answer your question...maybe.
I didn't see anyone explicitly called out as O or D coordinator. is that accurate?
"assistant to the defensive backs coach" or "assistant defensive backs coach"??
*office reference, anyone?*
that makes more sense then
Anyone? What would that do for recruiting?
Good point and I would say no, but I also wouldn't have believed the Mattison hire. If Corwin wants back into the college game he could very well take this job, "help Michigan", and then move on (i.e. I'm not sure how long Mattison is planning on coaching, and it could be a positive marker for him to turn our secondary around to get another position).
Corn Flakes Brown!
to have Corwin here. You talk about a Michigan Man. wow
You mean the one who told recruits (when he was coaching at ND) that he would have gone to ND over Michigan had he been offered by them?
I'm 100% willing to forgive Brown and I've love to have him back as a DB coach. But I don't forget.
Did Corwin Brown and Mattison overlap at Notre Dame at all?
Brown came after Mattison, IIRC.
Charles Woodson retires after the Super Bowl and comes home to Michigan to coach the DB's.
watching Charles Woodson every sunday but i give it a couple years and he will be done.
His recently signed contract goes til 2015. Maybe then.
I think Charles finishes his contract and goes to Napa Valley where he does some more hands on work with his winery. "21" is a good, but expensive bottle of wine
as DB coach. I would like that too.
I was thinking that exact same thing earlier today. Great minds think alike. Hope that becomes reality down the line. He would be an awesome recruiter.
What about Ty Law? I wonder what he's been up to last few yrs....he was here with Hoke and Mattison if I'm thinking correctly
you DON'T follow him on twitter and badger him with thoughtless tweets?
If he had wanted the DC job, he could have had it. He squashed that and there is NO way he will move from the NFL back to college for the same job. He has numerously stated he is more of an NFL coach than a college coach. Very, very doubtful.
I swear I heard the same argument about our current DC.... Not saying you said it... I think DB set the tone of not speaking to potential coaches until their season is done. Hoke followed that example by not bringing Mattison in until his season was over. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Jon Hoke came to coach DB's... It's not like da bears DB job is the pinnacle of position coaching.... I wouldn't be surprised if he takes the job by Monday or Tuesday....
He doesn't like recruiting. He is not coming here. It has nothing to do with Mattison. That guy is a legend in recruiting, Hoke is not.
My comparison of Mattison was based on the same thing being said about him "he won't leave the NFL to coach the same position". I wasn't saying that he was going to come here because of mattison...
I think I misunderstood your response. My bad. My only gripe with Hoke is the understanding that he doesn't like to recruit. I wouldn't mind him coming in. I just want it to be a Mattison hire and not a "brother hire".
Most people didn't know about the friendship he has with Hoke. It was evident that they worked together, but I had no idea that Mattison thought so highly and cared so much for Hoke.
Sure seems like it. Although, when asked, he said no. He doesn't like to recruit. I wonder who else is available out of the playoff teams.
We still need 2 coaches, I wonder who they are waiting on.
He said he wasn't interested.
I suppose it's possible that he was just saying that until the Bears season ended, though. Brady seemed to hint that his brother might be the guy, and it does seem weird that they haven't hired a DB coach yet.
Well, I guess we'll be finding out soon if it was indeed a smoke screen or not.
I agree with this and realize its plausibility, but don't you think this is more of a Mattison hire than a Hoke hire? Maybe not, but I hope it is after seeing this Gerg and Shafer disaster.
No idea. I'm sure both guys will sign off on whoever is hired.
But please have a more informative title. I clicked on this thinking we had a DB coach, and now I'm disappointed to see we're still looking for one.
It's going to be Darrell Green.
We need someone young, willing to recruit, and a potential future DC or head coach.
This description screams Corwin Brown.
Its gonna be jon hoke. Brady already asked him if at the end of the season he would come over and he said he would love to. The Bears coaching staff is a nervous wreck wondering if they are going to keep their jobs year in and year out.
Well, if there's anything we've learned over the past several years at Michigan, it's that every job is safe. Just ask Ron English, Erik Campbell, Scott Shafer, Jay Hopson, Rich Rodriguez, Tony Gibson, Bruce Tall, Greg Robinson, Greg Frey, Tony Dews, Calvin Magee, Rod Smith, and Adam Braithwaite.
