Just throwing this out there to see what some of you think, but Jon Tenuta is probably going to be out of a job now that Kelly has been hired. His stock may just be a little lower right now than a couple of years ago when it seemed as if everyone wanted him at their school. Just a thought here but why not bring him in as a position coach and assistant or associate head coach?
He has been a DBs coach at numerous schools, including Ohio State. At Notre Dame he coached the LBs and was the Asst. HC. Now the current secondary coach is Tony Gibson, who is a lifelong Rich Rod disciple, so him taking over the secondary is probably not going to happen. That being said Jay Hopson, who coaches the LBs, has not had the ties to Rodriguez that Gibson does and I would love to see Tenuta come in at that position.
His style of defense fits in extremely well with Robinson in that they are both philosophically very aggressive, and love to blitz. This is something that could go along way in helping the defense game plan better. It would also be a huge boost to the position he would coach, and to potential recruits as he has a great track record of players leaving his system and going to the NFL.
