I hate people keep saying, well he was a bad HC for Tampa and short comings as a HC, wont be good for tOSU...
First off, the dude was one hell of a college coach to do the things he did with Rutgers. Second, there have been guys who were horrible HCs but have been amazing assistants. If Urbz thought he would be an issue on his staff he wouldnt of hired him.
Do you guys know his whole history? He was a DB coach for Penn St from 91-95, Defensive coach for the bears from 96-98, From 99 to 00 he was the DC for the U. In 99 miami had the 12th best defense and 00 they had the 7th best defense, then he left to be the HC for Rutgers until he went to Tampa Bay.
I think this was a great hire, you have a guy who has HC experience, DC experience, DB coach experience.
The only bad thing is he might be here for 1-2 seasons but you look at Ash he was only here for 2 seasons too. Urb knows if he hires great assistants, they are going to turn into HC candidates
