    Atlanta Falcons: Former Washington wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Bush Hamdan has been announced as quarterbacks coach. The defending NFC champions have also announced former Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood as assistant offensive line coach, Dave Brock, Charlie Weis, Jr., and Justin Outten as offensive assistants, and, as FootballScoop first reported Monday, Georgia State defensive line coach Jess Simpson as a defensive assistant.

    As a current Atlanta area resident and fan of the local team, this major coaching influx does not excite me at all.
    Happy for Justin, not thrilled to see the names of Flood and Weiss.

    Welcome to the ATL, Justin!

    Charlotte: Source tells FootballScoop Brad Lambert is adding former Oklahoma State offensive line coach Greg Adkins to his staff in the same capacity. With the move, it is expected current offensive line coach Johnson Richardson will move to tight ends.

    A step down from P-5, but FBS nonetheless.
    Not sure if his family is still in Tennessee. If so, he'll be closer.

    Good for Siriki.
    I talked to him for a bit at the team hotel the night before the GA Tech disaster.
    A very nice fellow.

    I would have given Dino 1 year extension easily after the year.

    We are stupid not to extend him if the administration believes in him.

    Coach Frost is definitely a bit peeved Nebraska has come back to relevance a bit. He definitely wanted that job sooner than later. Getter tougher to win in Florida, especially at a directional school. So many big time coaches now pulling recruits even in state, let alone from SEC, ACC, Big 10, etc.

    Why? I love Babers, but why give him an extension now?

    Give him an extra year if we believe in him. So when he turns it around the bump up doesn't have to be as large.

    I think if Dino starts to win with his players, he'll stay. I truly believe the indoor track plays to his advantage and he knows that. The cash is secondary cuz he knows it'll come.

    He already has a 6 year deal. Scott Frost's was 5 originally. They're now the same length. Extend Dino if he's successful next season and the ship is moving in the right direction

    I don't think it'd make a difference

    i am not sure that cash is secondary, although that appears to be true in jb's case
