With the Mattison and Washington departures, we now have vacancies at LB coach and DL coach. Who are the top candidates to replace them? Any "likely" candidates you expect JH to interview for the vacancies? What about pipe dreams that just might have a chance?
Would you prefer someone with more experience (maybe an NFL position coach) or an up-and-comer with a tireless work ethic who maybe is less well known?
Would you prefer candidates with a strong regional scouting impact (what region....And be realistic if you're gonna say FL, GA, TX, CA - how much does that apply when recruiting to MI?) or someone who is not known as a recruiter but is a great X's and O's coach?
I have no insider info and no clue who they will bring in, but want to have a thread looking forward at potential fits instead of backwards/negative. Personally, I would LOVE them to get Charles Woodson on staff regardless of the role, and groom him to become a DC in the future. No clue if he has any interest, but even without any coaching experience I think he could be an instant difference maker as a LB coach and elite recruiter. (yeah, I know, he was not a LB, but that's the spot that's open. Maybe Partridge goes back there and Woodson would take Safeties?)
