    Are there any coaches out there who can recruit and coach, preferably at the same time?

    FWIW - I think we're better with him than without him. And I really don't think it's close.

    What do you base that on? I’m still unaware if our assistants were responsible for mediocre LB/secondary play because they couldn’t teach TG’s advanced system or if TG’s system is just awkward and counter intuitive. LBs out of position in coverage and unaware of receiver routes, our talented(we hope) DBs giving so much cushion amd not challenging or disrupting at LOS. And I go by the disappointment and frustration other posters express.

    But is CR a good coach? Did Michigan really want him or was he just a candidate after all? Did we counter offer because he’s really good or because a third assistant leaving for a down program would look bad, and we don’t have any strong replacements in the coaching Rolodex? I really don’t know but I would like to know the answers.

    Do we really even know why our two secondary coaches were shown the door?

    Yes. To save Grantham’s terrible ass who will be gone after this year regardless. Take that to the bank. It will be his choice too because Dan doesn’t have it in him to take out the garbage. Sucks but true. Our defense would be so much better in 2022 if we ripped the Grantham bandaid off now. Reminds me of giving muschamp the extra year. It’s never worth it.

    English was a mediocre recruiter and bad coach. Period. I am glad he is gone. His replacement is an improvement.

    I thought Gray was a good recruiter and a good coach. You would not have known that watching our secondary last year, but ... there could have been other factors at play. Rumor is, he somehow got us in the hot water with the NCAA that led to the show cause order. I do not know that for fact.

    It was English who got the Gators in trouble while recruiting a player in Washington state.

    It was English that was involved with the recruiting muck. But the more that’s come out it looks more and more like it was a setup to screw us over and might be a very common practice. Coach ends up on willies staff after atm and us get narc’ed out by coach with video provided. That coach set the meeting up. That whole thing stinks to high heaven
