Very, very close to NOT being OT, given Cam and Les and all.

I actually thought that's a better gig than Cam was going to get.  I figured, the way it played out with the Ravens, he was going to be damaged goods and would have ended up at a much lesser college program (middling BCS program, for instance).

No way.  He's been an NFL OC for a long time, and a HC for a short time.  The way things ended in Baltimore tarnished it a bit, but he was still a good OC while he was there, and he was a fantastic OC in San Diego.  He has coached a ton of great players in college and the pros, so I would have been surprised if he didn't get a job at this level.

What college OC has a resume anywhere near Cameron?

I agree with you that Cam Cameron has not been a good HC at any point, but that's not what he's being hired to do here so who cares.  

Sure, he had a talent in SD, but every team has a lot of talent.  He was able to make that talent very productive for a number of years.

At least one thing makes sense about this: Cam's worldview will mesh well with the stereotypical Deep South mindset. It apparently alienated some players in Baltimore.

Cam's reputation here was the opposite of what people call "a player's coach". It's been a long time, but he certainly didn't endear himself to many of the players here.

I'm sorry to thread hijack but since I haven't commented much here since the haloscan days I do not have enough points to start my own thread.  My wife and I (both 2-time alums) got married in Ann Arbor last year.  As part of our big day we had pictures taken at the big house. Our photographer selected one of our pictures from the tunnel for a contest that he is currently having.  First prize is a 30x20 print.  We are currently in second place and need more votes by noon EST tomorrow.  If you could find it in your heart to click the link below and leave a a comment we would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks in advance and Go Blue!
