    Doc Holiday has been at Marshall for 11 years and did not have his contract renewed after this past season. I would think Doc would be a good defensive hire for the Gators. He was a great recruiter while he was here and ran our safeties and secondary. I know he may not be as young as he used to be when he was here but he still knows Florida recruiting and in my opinion would be a solid add to our staff.

    Weird he was fired. Sounds like the second best school in West Virginia has some strange expectations.

    Lol now thats funny. Not many folks out their throwing around good names for secondary coaches, especially safety coaches. Dan has a realtionship with him from their time here and well. We could do worse hahaha.

    I don’t follow The Thundering Herd close enough to know if Doc did a good job or not. But our fan base has a strange incestuous relationship with wanting former coaches and players to return and lead us back to the glory days. Bubba Spurrier, Charlie Strong, Doc Holiday, Kerwin Bell, etc.

    A former coach that had success here, with recruiting ties to Florida and was a recruiting coordinator at UF. Who also happened to coach the position of most need on our team.

    He took them to eight bowl games in 10 years at Marshall, and lost his job? I'm assuming there are other issues?

    The president also said he ran a clean program and no outside influences played a role. He was also named the 2020 coach of the year. Muy interesante.

    Marshall needs to look in the mirror. Just what is it they expect to be as a football program?

    Holiday was a very good recruiter, but had a reputation of being a dirty recruiter specially in South Florida and Holiday most be in his late sixths perhaps older.

    Maybe the Governor got him confused with the old west gunslinger and gambler.

    West Virginia is, after all, the second least educated state in the US.
