      Broken record mode here, but wow do I not miss the days of having a DC running things and constantly searching for a compatible OC who wants to “run the ball and shorten the game, aight”.

      I can’t even bring myself to check out volnation. I’m too embarrassed for them.

        For some reason I thought Chaney was already on staff there...

          The crappy thing is that the puppies might get a better OC.

            Either way, the Dwags are on the edge right now. Either they get over the hump this year or their 15 minutes is over.

                This is great news! Georgia is having to deal with serious turnover in their assistant ranks relatively early in Kirby’s tenure. We’ve seen how that can hamper a program. This is just one more thing that will eat into Kirby’s time and hopefully have a negative impact on their program and recruiting. Losing both coordinators in the span of a month, with one bailing out late in the hiring season, is good news for us.

                    As in Tony Romo? Why would Saban consider hiring a guy with zero coaching experience and zero recruiting experience and zero connections to the Southeast? And zero Super Bowl rings to show off to potential recruits?

                    Not saying it may not be true but it makes no sense whatsoever. He is not such a big name in the football world as to step into a job of that stature.

                      Chaney had a three year contract that ended after the 2018 season. Apparantly Georgia had an option and declined. Chaney was technically unemployed so it makes sense that he took another job.

                      Honestly, every time I see Georgia play I'm astounded at how pedestrian their offense is for a team that is loaded, two and three deep, with players we were drooling over. I guess Tennessee gets to toil under that mediocre yoke for awhile now.

                        Coley was made the QB coach and co-OC before Chaney left to Tenn. He will just be given the tittle of OC.

                            At least he can keep the same jacked-up truck with the driver-side tobacco stains.

                              Yeap, looking at all these teams scrambling to find an OC makes me glad our HC is the OC, and he is a good one at that.

                                  Heard on the radio while driving home that the Dwags had the option of matching the Voles offer, but declined. Kirby is likely to promote from within for both OC and DC because he won’t change his offensive or defensive philosophy. He’s an elite recruiting Mushchump.

                                      If that's the case (Chaney realizes he's underachieved) he could just be job hopping to ensure the big paychecks keep coming in for a few more years. It could be a similar move as Holgersen leaving WVU for Houston (and the guaranteed $4 million pay checks for 4 or 5 more years). He just had a really good team w/ a Heisman type talent at QB and went 8-4. He may have seen a drop off coming next season and the WVU boosters probably aren't too happy w/ 7 to 8 wins a year. Chaney will likely get at least $1mil from UT and that will be good for 2 or 3 years.

                                        I do. That team has been loaded with five star talent at the skill positions, they should be scoring 50 points a game. Chaney ought to be smart enough to know he's been underachieving for a long time and his job isn't secure. Only a place like Tennessee would look at that guy as some kind of "catch."

                                              Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
