For as much complaining that was done during the HC search, what the hell is going on with the DC search? With recruiting time slipping away, getting a DC on board to speak with our wavering recruits (e.g. Countess, Crawford) would seem to be critical.
As we move into week 2 of the Hoke regime, what could possibly be taking so long? We have the big free agent in Shannon, who doesn't seem to be moving anywhere at this point. If we're getting Bedford, why hasn't he moved over yet? If it's Austin, then there's no excuse as he's just hanging out. If we're taking a DC from another college team, I'm sure even that team would like to know in order to fill their spot before recruiting.
At this point, the only thing that would make sense to me is if we're taking someone from a team that is/was in the playoffs. The three most obvious choices in that group would seem to be Greg Mattison (DC, Ravens), Mike Trgovac (DL, Packers) or Jon Hoke (DB, Bears). But even then, there's nothing stopping any of those guys from accepting a job while still continuing to work with their teams (like Weis did after he took the Florida OC position.
While not at HC frustration yet, this is slowly getting there for me.
