    Not sure what your point is. Being a great recruiter at bama and a cheater at tennessee are not mutually exclusive points.

    Don't know if Mullen can pull a top tier DC from another P5 school. But Marquand Manuel is a former Gator player and has a lot of NFL coaching experience, even being the DC for the Falcons for a year. It would be risky in some ways, but imagine he would be a boost to recruiting. I think his name came up very early in this thread, although it could be on another board. Whoever it is, Mullen better get it right.

    He was the same person at both places. At Bama it’s called good recruiting . Tenn, it’s called cheating. Everyone is a good recruiter at Bama.

    Much bigger recruiting "budget" when you're a NCAA sacred cow.

    Not gonna lie that season when it became "TebowTime" you could just feel it. It's a shame Fox kept him under wraps and the play calls were terrible till the 4th qtr most games.

    Oh and let's not forget they traded their pro bowl WR the week of Tebows 1st start for like a 6th round pick or some shit. I think a guy with his athletic accolades who would go put in his dues in the Baseball minor leagues to try and earn his way is probably humble wouldn't have any issues sitting behind and learning from. A HOF'er like manning.

    well it is the PAC 12.

    In all honesty I think Manny Diaz would be the guy at UF if he’s fired at Miami.

    I would be fine with Diaz. Would help with South Florida recruiting, for sure.

    Perfect statement. But…he is in nfl for a reason. A head coach busted for paying players is NOT hireable as our DC. He will soon have a likely 5 year shoe cause penalty on himself, forget him as a DC at UF.

    Tons of suggestions I like and dislike. But upon further thought…there isn’t even a job opening yet. While it is nearly unfathomable Grantham isn’t let go…under Mullen I think I’m gonna wait until TG is gone. And at that time, while some choices for a new DC terrify me, I think in the end I will be happy to have anyone else as DC.

    It's hard to find articles about Coastal's defensive schemes but I've read that they run a base 3-4 defense that morphs into a 4-3 and other looks. I know that's not saying much but it's all that I got.
