Nick Sheridan Moving Up Coaching Ladder

Submitted by JC3 on December 20th, 2012 at 11:21 PM

Former Michigan QB Nick Sheridan has been QB Coach/Passing Game Coordinator at Western Kentucky since 2011, and with Willie Taggert taking over at USF he's brought Sheridan with him.

From Footballscoop:

South Florida: Willie Taggart announced via press release this afternoon that Walt Wells and Nick Sheridan will join from Western Kentucky. Wells will serve as offensive coordinator / offensive line coach and Sheridan will serve as quarterbacks / passing game coordinator. 

Congrats to Nick.

He was "death" on the field, but I have never seen anyone here write that he would be anything but a great coach when his "playing" days were over.  Sheridan was always a guy whose brain and heart were a fuck of a lot bigger and stronger than his arm and legs.

Nobody is surprised that he is moving up the ladder.  It was all but a "given" to anyone who watched him or knew his history.

May be he'll take over for Borg....kidding guys! Just jokes!

That's great for him. Had a class with him back in the glory days. Seemed like a good kid. Happy he's seeing success in the coaching ranks.

Wow, pretty damn impressive to be a D1 coordinator at that age, even if it is only co-coordinator. Here's hoping he becomes QB coach here in a few years, or even OC.

as someone in the field of education, i concur with MCalibur --  it's a dumb thing to say.


for example, there's tons of prof's out there who can "do" just fine and yet couldn't teach a fish to swim. 


just because there's a dearth of outstanding teachers out there doesn't mean anyone can stand up and do it well.

i don't limit myself to sausage making.  i believe sausage education is an important subject for  youth today, as are all the sausage arts -- sausage sculpture, sausage philosphy, and sausage R&D.  needless to say, it's not easy being king.  some punk last week even tried to steal my identity...

it was a joke.  As an instructor who chose this field because it was something I wanted to do, not because of incompetence in other money-making fields, this is something repeated quite frequently among my colleagues - as a joke.  Meanwhile, this moronic little aphorism has some truth to it, because it is easier to teach if the subject is something you struggle with yourself.  Have you ever tried to learn something from someone who understands the concept naturally <- very difficult.  Try not to take things so personally.  By the way, the moronic little aphorism "I want to take a massive dump on people..." makes you sound like a 15 year old boy.

Nick Sheridan is a Wolverine that will never be rememebered.. But somebody had to be the QB during that year.  I wish Sheridan the best and hopefully see him on the sideline soon!
