Uses a 4-2-5 scheme.Western Kentucky guy.
He coached there beforeOn paper not happy. Was hoping for an attacking D. WKU was 7th last year in conference games for sacks and also 7th in TOs. Good news 2nd in ypp, 1st 3rd down, 2nd in red zone TD. What Navy did with inferior talent in a stronger conference was much more impressive. Disappointing to go from an attacking D to an unknown. BTW why isn’t NC State trying to hire this guy?
Here is a write up on candidates for the open NC State DC position. It includes an evaluation of Clayton.He coached there before
He has coached some strong secondaries
Not sure how he is as a recruiter
Looks to have a lot of ties to N Carolina and Virginia, could help out with that area
Either we’re going after that commit because we hired this coach, or the rumor mill site writers saw us going after this kid and made up a plausible rumor.Could be coincidence but maybe this is why we were going after the DE/DT WKU commit.
The less lbs on the field, the better.Uses a 4-2-5 scheme.
A 2017 Frank Broyles Award nominee for the nation's top assistant coach and a 17-year coaching veteran, Clayton White enters his third season as defensive coordinatorwkusports.com
Stanard has as bad, maybe worse, defensive statistics than Ward did as a DC in two different situations. Not sure how you could be convinced this makes sense, if true.If we’re keeping Stanard and going with this guy, I could be convinced. I know everyone wants an “attacking guy” but even this year we finished in the middle of the conference in sacks. Our DL has been ok.
I’m wanting the LB and S play to get better - mostly on bad angles and slow reads.
