- Funk is almost certainly gone for obvious reasons. When the offensive line is that bad in any single year, the coach should be fired.
- Jackson will "retire." We haven't had an effective RB since Hart. His only reprieve would be his recruiting prowess which the staff may deem valuable enough to be reason to retain him.
- Wellman might be out. The team was clearly weaker and smaller than it should have been.
- Mallory is looking to leave too, so I figure he'll leave once he gets a job somewhere else.
- Maybe Ferrigno? The punt formation has been terrible but I see that more as being done under Hoke's direction. The tight end situation hasn't been great but it hasn't terrible either. I guess it depends on who Nussmeier wants to bring with him.
- I don't really see any other changes beyond that. Hecklinski has been great and I don't know much about LB play but it seemed like youth has been the big problem on defense and Manning has only been there for a season so I don't see him or Smith being let go.

and the guys above who responded.

I'm interested in learning more about it.
|2 days 23 hours ago||No, but arguing that the case of Beilein is the rule rather||
than the exception isn't a rational assessment. I'm not rooting for us to lose or for the staff to fail, I'm only advocating for a rational inspection of our team and staff. It may not be popular, but I hardly think that I'm yelling about nothing.

at the hands and feet of Denard. Have you seen anything in the past 2 seasons that inspires confidence in you that this staff will succeed at the highest levels? I want to believe in this staff so badly but the vast incompetence that we've seen plainly discredits any of the unbridled optimism that seems unjustly prevalent.

The clearest memory of the Lions from my childhood is my Dad yelling at the TV whenever they played.

good in my childhood to think of for the next 20 years.

Based on the past season and the moves since then, this seems to fall in the category of the latter.

See Funk's name by "Offensive Line." Maybe, they hired someone new and gave him a Mission Impossible mask of Funk's face to keep it under the radar because he's actually a native North Korean. That's probably the best case scenario,

an odd show, to be sure, but it is excellent and part of television history. I really enjoyed and if you like True Detective, there's a good chance that you'll like Twin Peaks.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Woah, I wonder how that will||
play out. Those two are doing a phenomenal job and if the new protagonists don't have the same acting skills, the show could really suffer.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||For those who have watched Twin Peaks,||
do you see some similiarities between that and True Detective as well? True Detective is a little darker but this is as close we've seen to Twin Peaks since it ended.

It sure seems like it. Like others have mentioned, it is quite common for such titles to be had for any number of positions in academia, non-profits, thinks tanks, etc.. A void existed and by fulfilling such a void, the potential of the organization is being maximized.

I've stopped watching and pretty much watch reruns of Scrubs and Entourage instead.

I think we all know the answer to that.

|8 weeks 21 hours ago||I think the defensive staff will stay intact sans Mallory.||
Mallory is clearly looking for other opportunites. I don't know if he's being forced out or if he's just looking to move up.
I think it's fair to say that the entire offensive staff is not secure. We both agree on Funk for performance reasons. Rumors of Jackson retiring have been floating around since before the season began. And like I said, I think Ferrigno performance hasn't been impressive enough to keep at all costs. His job is at the discretion of Nussmeier. New boss, new people.
|8 weeks 21 hours ago||From what I've seen, the whole offensive staff is potentially||
open to change, depending on approval by Nussmeier.
That being said, here are my thoughts on a few coaches:

I've played multiple iterations of NCAA and in all of those games, I've managed to lead my offense to scoring 100+ points in multiples games and averaging 50+ points per game. I don't have any bowl victories, but that's only because I end up winning the national championship every year.
I'm a pretty good recruiter too. I've managed to get more 5 stars than 4 stars in most of my classes.
