The main reasoning I have behind this is that the new DC(hopefully Randy Shannon!) will have the 15-16 bowl practices to implement their scheme. Then once we go into the offseason the kids have some a much better understanding of the defense, hopefully leading to an even bigger improvement next year.
Has this occurred recently, and had it been successful - That would be a Head Coach hiring a new coordinator before a bowl game, and that team still ends up winning? What are your thoughts? ......this is under the assumption that RR will be back.
