I finished Urban's Above the Line book this week and was pleased to see Coach Studrawa recognized. This was written long before the recent move. I am excited as the OL will benefit from two great coaches (as long as they are aligned).
Urban has a very fine line to walk. He does not want to micro-manage, nor should he. So he has to provide direction and ensure alignment while providing a great deal of autonomy to his staff. His staff is comprised of guys who get it done and are very confident in what they do. Overconfidence is a possible outcome and I have wondered did Coach Warriner believe and insist that he could perform the OC role from the field. It took a loss to gain acceptance (on his part) for the change to be made. Once that decision was made he had to solve the problem on who to coach the OL which then created the problem of which coach to displace. Time will tell but it sure looks like another winning decision for UFM and the team.
