    Maybe, but a position coach isn't changing the offense. Hiring a Co-OC or passing game coordinator etc might.

    For position coaches, give me recruiters and recruiters who know the southeast. If we have to pay "the going rate" then we have to pay the going rate. I'm tired of US being the ones losing coaches to Bammer or Ugly bc we are paying 1/2 to 1/3 of what they get there. (Though Im quite glad to have gotten rid of atrocious Charlton, we shouldnt lose any talented guys like that.)

      I’m like minded. Not looking to partially revamp the offense via new blood position coaches tweaking it. Much more pressing need to upgrade recruiting at that level. I think the Jimmies and Joes are the glaring priority. Of course Dan could always hire an actual full-time OC if we want to advance the O - that’s a good subject for a separate post!

        BMFs thought regarding upgrading the O with a new hire just triggered a random Christmas wish. Chris Petersen as OC.

        I'm talking about on-field assistants. He also took Marrotti. Mark Pantoni is the recruiting coordinator.

        Edit: he also hired Brian Voltolini, who worked w/ him at Utah & Florida - in an off field role.

        Marotti is the highest paid off field assistant at Ohio State, making $785K (plus bonuses - he'll get about a 25% bonus so far, more if they advance in the playoffs).

        Voltolini makes $237K and Pantoni makes $200K (plus the same bonuses as Marotti), making them the 2nd & 3rd highest paid off-field assistants.

        I remember someone mentioning that we should steal him away from Crackumbus.

        I lolled. That's probably double our whole off the field budget.

        Normally Id agree. But I'd be ok with it if that person was very well thought of and expected to be a stud recruiter. Give them an easy spot like WR or RB. Maryland did it with a hs coach and it looks like it's working.
        This I 100% agree with. I would like a guy liek Baker would know the culture of UF, but the experience in the system doesn't mean shlt. I mentioned Bush Hamdan, bc he's now learned from Peterson. Guy from isu, bc he's learned from Campbell. Sometimes its not even a schematic thing; could be an interesting way they're organizing practice.

          To be consistent, if we blame him when guys don't come, we should credit him when guys do. Can't have it both ways.

          Like who? Watkins and Copeland, who were committed the day he was hired?

          Butters Specials Marks or Weston?

          Or Fraziars?

          Maybe we should give him credit for the ones he landed who werent we could have been anybody else because they were obviously going as juco like Manuel and Arjei Henderson?

          We are trying to be consistent. That's why you acknowledge that a guy like Grimes that was transferring close to home regardless, isnt the recruiting win that a high schooler is.

            I’ll reserve judgement on Weston since Seider found him and he never camped

            We really shouldnt be in the position of taking huge reaches.

            Just like Whittemore they were offered by butters and their slots honored. However, let's be realistic here, we had no other options anyway. We tried with dozens of others and whiffed. Realistically those guys should be walk ons/pwo. It's not like we had competition for them.

            He was going to be canned by Petersen but he would have had a harder time doing it. Like Mullen and him hanging onto his boys he knows, Hamden was a former QB under Petersen at Boise State. The new HC at Washington, Lake, is a DC and knew the offense sucked.

            Yep. They've been slowly dropping and have underperformed considering their QBs. Wouldnt dream of him for OC, but ok as wr coach. would actually help is hold onto him longer.

            Would be a big get. Was a 5* recruit.

            @DK_Thompson: Justin Shorter coming to campus today means Florida is likely in the driver seat. Likely meeting compliance, academics, and doing tours.

              I think he’d be a really good pickup after some of the Savage treatment. Looking forward to seeing him suit up for us in the fall!

                I'm not sure whether you intended to be punny or not.
