    It looks like it's headed in the direction for the 10th full time assistant to get approved. What position group would you prefer we hire someone for? I really haven't decided - just looking to start a discussion.

    Somehow my math is not adding up or my brain is tired. We have 9 right now with Vinson Reynolds handling the whole defensive line and Nick Monroe the whole secondary. Somehow your list adds up to 10 with both of those splitting up into 2 separate coaches.

    Aha I knew there was something. I kept looking at the SU website and comparing the list. I would also look at special teams or my second choice would be splitting the corners and safeties into two coaches.

    Tough call. The 10th guy could be valuable many ways. Specials are always a need. That said, we probably need another set of eyes on the Dline and secondary. Defense in general. Great to see dollars allocated to the coaching staff;)

    I didn't include coordinators. Just positions. Coordinators are also position coaches. Have to be. Can't have just a full time specials coordinator, what's he going to do when the team is in their position groups or running Offense defense. Which is probably 95% of the practice

    I'd probably lean towards splitting the corners and safeties

    To add another part to my question, is there any particular recruiting territory you would also try to add with this hire?

    The problem with a dedicated special teams coach is that there's not enough for him to do on a daily basis. College football is all about development, and no one is going to be a dedicated special teams player. So unless there's someone who is a kicking coach, it wouldn't make sense.

    I'm interested to see if schools hire a specific recruiting coach. Could see an SEC program doing it. A school like Bama could hire Locksley to just go recruit full time.

    I didn't think DC's Ward or Bullough coached a position. Am I mistaken?
