Isn't Borges the QB coach? I might be inadvertently making your point for you...
You should check out Roy Manning's coaching bio.
It wouldn't surprise me at all to see Manning hired. Aside from being a Michigan alum and a good coach, he is a young African American man who can likely relate to some kids in a way a that a 50 year old white guy might not be able to...just sayin
What about Tyrone Wheatley?
I would take Wheatley over Hart.
I must say, I'm a little lost here. What the hell does Mike Hart know about being a DL coach?
I love the guy and would love more than anything to see him back here, but uh, as a DL coach? Not exactly what I pictured.
Montgomery was the DE coach, so essentially he micro managed a bit with Mattison and Hoke both also coaching the DL. The thought is that those 2 can still coach the DL and that the incoming coach can really be put anywhere Hoke sees fit. I do agree with the overall suggestion that the new coach should be a young, energetic, and eager African American though and Mike Hart certainly fits that bill.
Rabble rabble Dave Brandon rabble rabble
We don't need him as a DL coach, we already have two, right? He would be a heck of a recruiter and eventual replacement for all-time running backs coach, Sir Fred Jackson.
While this move was not really about $$$ I feel like this would not have happens at an SEC school.
People don't leave for promotions when the path ahead of them is blocked at SEC schools. Weird....must be the only place that that doesn't happen. If he really is being offered recruiting coordinator responsibilities, it's a great resume booster and I would have been surprised to see him stay here when the path ahead is blocked.
I'm sure the staff will find another replacement and I'm sure energy and recruiting ability will be evaluated. Brandon understands what it takes to bring in good talent, so I wouldn;t worry about being out-bid.
It was about money
Look what Cam Cameron is making at LSU and tell me DB would ever pony up that kind of money for an assistant coach. The only reason we got Mattison was because he wanted to be close to his daughter and granddaughter.
Charlie strong? Young, black and coached defense! Dave brandon should give him a call.
Charlie Strong was a D Coordinator at Florida and now the head coach of a team that won a BCS game...I'm sure he wants to come here to be a position coach.
I guess that will hurt us with Mone; and McDowell; and Marshall. And who knows how many othe recruits he was in on, recruits he's going to try and steer towards Oklahoma now.
Most of all, though? It's just embarassing.
sure thats the only way to look at that scenario. It may be a positive theres an opportunity will be coached by the HC. It works for Saban he coaches the DBs if I'm not mistaken.
But not embarrassing...when other schools come after your coaching staff it is a compliment. Look how many have been picked off Saban's tree. His program is just fine. Now if we go the way of Mack brown...not so good.
have this happen all the time. Who wouldn't jump at Coaching the new players we have brought in and the one's in the pipeline!
Your first sentence is correct, your second sentence, more arguably, as well. Notably, though, neither has anything to do with either of the things I said.
Has anyone ever thought about will happen when Fred retires? I'm wondering if Tyrone or Mike will get the running backs job. Someone will be left out and I can only imagine the blog when that happens.
I'm rooting for Mike Cox.
Is Glen Steele interested in coaching?
Now that is an idea! He his a teacher and HS football coach, I think in IN. Never know!
Upvote this man.
OU's D-line play has been atrocious the past few years, so success there, both in recruiting D-linemen and in coaching them, will be ascribed to coach Montgomery.
Lets hire Dashawn Hand's hs coach.
Sparty just beat us to it. Mark Hollis just read this post and has issued a press statement letting the world know that "we pioneered that idea, it's not exactly rocket science at this point".
As noted by others here, we don't really need a defensive line specialist... So why not use the free coaching spot to hire a special teams coach? Maybe one who is at least comfortable with the idea of trying a rugby-style punt formation? But they must be fluent in The Brunette Technique.
It took me a good minute to get the reference.
Best of luck to Coach Montgomery, definitely sucks.
LGBT peeps just snapped their fingers and twirled their wallet chains at you!! Lol!
BUT IT"S DAVID BRANDONS FAULT!!!! He should just pay Mongomery whatever the hell he wants!!!!!! We should just pay all of our football coaches in the gazillions cause we're Michigan!!!!!!! Also, while we're at it, we should just nuke China!!!!!!!
Well, it looks like I shouldn't be so cynical and give more credence to such rumors. I scoffed at this early in the week. I always thought he would leave, but for a co-DC or DC gig. He did well here, and we may see his name as a DC or even head coach in the near future.
Lets stop bitching and crying about him leaving and discuss who his replacement will be. I think it will be Glen Steele.
Toney Clemens! What too soon
Is he related to Roger?
No, but he is related to Samuel Langhorne
Jerry Montgomery coached 1/3 of the defensive line for 2 years and a lot people assume he was the DC in waiting? I'm really happy that those people don't work for the Michigan football program. Holy shit.
Bring on Les Miles! But only if Saban can't be lured here.
.. get a QB coach now? I think we are set at DL.
