Coincidence our and Lea's last game were against each other? I'm betting he was impressed with our Special teams when we played against ND in the last game of the season. Believe that was the game when the announcers were singing Lustigs' praises, stating that other teams have tried to pry him from SU. Bet Lea watched the game afterwards and may have brought it to his attention.At first glance I thought they had coached together at Syracuse but they just missed each other. Is there another connection that I am missing?
Our receivers do drop a ton of passes, usually on 3rd down when a catch would move the sticks. Taj Harris, our best receiver, is a culprit. His numbers would have been even better if he didn't drop so many.West, White, Achuff, Ferri and Gilbert.
look Lustig is a good coach but the best assistant is ridiculous. Outside wide receivers are arguably the 2nd worst player development spot on the team.
If DFB has any doubts about Cavanaugh I’d say bring in the OL guy (Mattox?) that Gilbert has worked with and then get a WR coach that can recruit.After some research on the current staff it looks like seniority wise Monroe has been with Dino for 10 years all the time as a secondary coach and Lynch has been with Dino around 10 years and has served as COC/ RB/ OL. as per Lustig he came on board in 2017 and in his 4 years here he served as STC/Outside Rec. and AHC to me that shows Dino really felt very strong about Lustig's coaching abilities and he did a damn good job the 4 years he was here and taking the Vandy job was a no brainer for many reasons. Now we will find out how Dino realigns his staff ,the most interesting promotion will be who gets the title of ( AHC ) ? I might take a guess and say Tony White ? As for the new hire to fill whatever position becomes available I would like to see us bring in a young proven recruiter with some strong ties in the NJ area.
We matched the last SEC school who poached our coach and they spend a lot more than Vandy. (We still didn't retain said coach)
Who wants average when we have been among the best in the country?You would think that since they play half the season’s games in a dome, it shouldn’t require a lot of the coaching budget to return an average ST unit.
Better than average is obviously nice but when there’s a finite number of dollars, you have to pick and choose.
He had outside receivers. He did a good job was was a top 5-10 ST coach. You say you wants mediocre st unit for a good WR Corp until you lose a game and miss a bowl over a missed FG or a blown coverage on a return for a TDSpecial teams were great but I’d take a mediocre ST unit to get a wide receiver corps that catches passes consistently. I don’t know anything about Lustig so maybe wide receiver issues were out of his control to address?
Agree. One third of the game.Some of you are putting way too much stock into Wr coach. You can have stud receivers and a average Wr coach and you can have a great WR coach but average Wr play. They are important for development of fundamentals and all but special teams can win or lose games. No one seems to notice specs until there's a big play but specs are important throughout the game. Whether its field position , protection etc...
Ok you convinced me. How about a good special teams coach with deep tri-state ties and is a great recruiter?Some of you are putting way too much stock into Wr coach. You can have stud receivers and a average Wr coach and you can have a great WR coach but average Wr play. They are important for development of fundamentals and all but special teams can win or lose games. No one seems to notice specs until there's a big play but specs are important throughout the game.
