So, Heater is off the board. Who else in on our list? I haven't heard much from the rumor mill here.
I have a suggestion though: given that a lot of people are buzzing about bringing in an assistant who can really recruit, at the expense of more competency in LB coaching, why not focus on an ex-Wolverine LB who has NFL experience? It seems that, of late, a lot of the big-time recruiters among the assistant coach ranks are younger guys who have played pro ball. Wouldn't it make sense to give someone like Larry Foote a look (contract up with Lions, but only 29) or Ian Gold? These guys can talk about what it takes to play in the NFL and that spells credibility with recruits. Who knows, they might be able to coach up some LB skills, too.
