"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Video: WR Coach/Recruiting Coordinator Jeff Hecklinski
Seems like a good coach and a passionate guy. He certainly has a lot of talent to work with.
Holy cow, Thats the first staff member I seen that was not a senior citizen hehe (except Brady ofcourse)
He probably carries a comb in his back pocket at all times, just to remind the other coaches that he has a full head of hair.
I had to laugh at how serious Hecklinski was the entire time...
...until Karsch said thanks at the end, and then Hecklinski got a big, goofy smile on his face.
Also, he's got kind of a strange voice...
...but I like his "no excuses" attitude and if he's replacing Chris Singletary, he must be pretty good at what he does, because I thought Singletary was a good recruiting coordinator.
"It puts the lotion on its skin..." is the first thing I thought of when I heard him.
Sounds like an awesome guy though. Of course we're gonna get it done, what kind of stupid question is that, this is Michigan.
Wow! An assistant coach under fifty years old with hair.
I like it!
You've got to love this group of coach's commitment to "no excuses". I love how at the end he said, "we WILL get the recruits." So far they seem to be living up to that promise.
Is Chris Singletary gone or does he have another title now?
First it was reported he was gone.
Then it was reported that he's the "Assistant Recruiting Coordinator."
I don't know 100%, but that's what I heard last.
Chris Singletary wiil probably go back to his old position as an administrative recruiting coordinator. He got a lot involved as a recruiting focal point in the past three weeks because Rich Rod and his staff were let go and BH and staff were brand new (except for Fred Jackson).
If DB didn't like him, he would have been let go when Rich Rod was let go.
Wow! According to thefollowing link, he has a EE degree.
Oops, it is his wife who has an EE degree.
It'll be great to see how he develops the pool of talent that we have.
LOVE the intensity.
I know ths is OT but watching this interview I couldn't help but see the Adidas logo the whole time on his jacket. Does anyone know if we will ever go back to Nike? I've heard in the past that a coaching staff has nothing to do with this decision.
If I was a recruit he would have sold me already. I loved how he is truely passionate about wanting to find kids who know the level of greatness that will come with restoring the program.
