James Madison's new football coach, Everett Withers, speaks during a news conference at which he was officially introduced, Tuesday, Jan 7, 2014, in Harrisonburg, Va.

Everett Withers' head coaching days are in their infancy at James Madison University. He hasn't even named his coordinators yet, but he has an idea of what he's looking for on defense:

I want to die fast if I'm going to die. I don't want to go real slow and let people bend but don't break. I want to go try to get the quarterback. We want to be aggressive on defense.

It's interesting because up until he was hired by JMU, Everett withers was a co-defensive coordinator of a defense that was decidedly not aggressive.
