this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Corwin Brown's defense team is claiming that the events at his home in August were connected to brain injury from his days as a player.
The whole thing is just sad.
As per the Chicago Tribune:
Corwin Brown not hired by Buffalo
Still available ... we'll see.
Corwin Brown is out
As is everyone else apparently
there was much talk this past season of M's assistant coaches perhaps being let go and with all the changes at ND i am hoping that RR can snakeoil corwin brown. any ideas on current position coach's status, what the schedule is for their dismissal/hiring and what role they have in recruiting?
also, is corwin a good fit or am i just too sentimental about the 1990s?
This is from an article on Jabba calling the offense for 09 on ESPN.com.
"I thought the best chance for us to win this year would be to make me the offensive coordinator," Weis said.
Weis also announced that defensive coordinator Corwin Brown has been promoted to associate head coach and now will be co-defensive coordinator with linebacker coach Jon Tenuta.
Tenuta, who joined the team last year and helped change Notre Dame's scheme to a more attacking style, will call the defensive plays in 2009.
"Because I'm now running the offense, not just the play-caller, Corwin is now kind of my second in command," Weis said. "There's going to be times where I need input from him, especially during the season, on some matters as it relates to the defense overall and special teams, because I'm going to be spending the majority of my time during the season with the offense."
Corwin, I like you, loved the hit on Bettis (took bad he still scored) at the goal line in ND, but dude, you aren't calling the defense anymore. You are Weis's caddy. Why would he ask you about the "defense overall" if you don't call it. I know this assistant head coach thing is the rage, but really? You have special teams and errands to White Castle. Polish up the resume and take a look around my friend. Something better has to be out there. The best chance for that team to win is not for fat ass to call the plays, but to use oil from his blubber to heat the offseason practice facility, could use more reps.
