With all of the criticism directed at Pep and Drevno the last two years it got me wondering if they are the most vilified assistant coaches in recent memory or if it just seems that way because of recency bias. Certainly guys like Al Borges, Darrell Funk and GERG received their fair share of criticism but not at this level.
I've been a fan since the late '70's and for me the most frustrating assistants were during the Carr years with the Mike Debord/Terry Malone/Stan Parrish offenses. I always felt they had a ton of talent that never reached their full potential. Those teams were stacked with the likes of Brady/Henson, A-Train, David Terrell and Marquise Walker but I thought the scheme and play calling was way too conservative. Going back even further, I remember people bitching about Cam Cameron quite a bit as well.
I'm sure I missed some, but these are the coaches that come first to mind. My question is, who of these offensive masterminds would you prefer? Would you rather have Pep or Debord? Is Drevno < Borges?
