Makes one wonder if he'll coach tight ends, so does this mean we found our 10th coach? Someone needs to make a chart of who is added and subtracted on our staff this time of year can be hectic to keep track of basketball and football recruiting and coaching changes.

Someone else has to go.Hopefully the rumors about Pep are right and he's got a foot out the door. Guessing that Drevno steps back and focuses on OL, here's the TE coach, Washington for ST? part of the DBs? Hopefully Partridge is not out the door as well.

Edit that: as pointed out below, Brian Smith has left as well. This could theoretically be it for changes.

If I had to make a(n uneducated) guess, Pep will be gone and Drevno is looking 50/50 or trending towards staying.

Pep has bounced around the NFL for much longer than Drevno, and since the NFL season is still going on, and unfilled head coaching vacanies and staffs exist, like the Lions, there is still a good chance for the coaching carousel to pick off Pep. While college football staffs are still in flux, I don't see Drevno being picked off for a head coaching gig, or even an OC gig, unless at a lower level. Jim's probably going to have to push him out the door, and that might prove difficult, since they've worked together for so long.

If this comes to fruition, Enos moves into the passing game coordinator role, for better or worse. I just wish they would simplify the offensive heirarchy, and have one O.C.

It's like anything else - at the end of a very lengthy and boring job description is the only phrase that most people really need to know about their positions, and that would be "other duties as assigned". I sometimes feel like coaching at larger programs and larger schools fulfills this key part of the job description more completely than most other environments.

Harbaugh is hiring one of his former assistants in Moore and the S&C staff he last worked with. That fits more with what you would do for an OC than a position coach. That his contract also spells out his pay if he is named a coordinator is also telling. I don't recall ever seeing a clause like that for a position coach.

Gardner is a class act. Regardless of the coaching situations, those two have a lot to be proud of. Not that many people can claim to have been the QB at a school like ours. They should both hold their head's up high for the rest of their days. Gardner playing osu injured and putting us in a position to potentially win was as impressive of a showing of grit as I've ever seen.

As others pointed out at the time, Gardner's injury limited the play selection on the two-point conversion. He couldn't run for it, so he had to throw. And it almost worked.

But that's not remotely a criticism of Devin, who gave one of the gutsiest performances I've ever seen. A class act, indeed, as well as a young man who deserved a better situation than the one he landed in.
