    Murf Baldwin (Top Billin), post game video indicated that Rex Ryan needs to be the new DC, and found a lack of effort by everyone on defense to get off blocks yesterday.

    I would give a long look at Diaz and Manuel. Diaz is probably gone. Manuel probably makes 500k in the NFL. Getable if he's interested. Jump on Coach O as an assistant NOW!

    On board with MM.
    Has a SB ring, has DC and all-round secondary experience, has South Florida ties and still young enough.

    Look at consistent top defenses and go from there. Would like a guy with ties to the program and young.


    However, if any change occurs, Mullen’s approach tells me he will go with someone that has been on his staff before. A retread.

    Surprised Venables hasn’t left for a head coaching gig yet.

    The guy that got stripped of playcalling duties by Saban and fired by Dabo? No thanks.

    Jim Leonhard would be great, but UF could never land him.

    Pruitt was DC at Georgia when our Treon led offense ran for 400yards.
    No thanks, we already saw what that crap looks like yesterday.

    Anyone with an ounce of character and one that doesn't do throat slashes/choke signs to 21 year olds. He should never be in a position to influence young men again.

    Marcus Freeman at ND. Still in his 30's has a great reputation. No ties to the south and he may be the coach in waiting in South Bend. That said he is a huge upgrade. Back up the Brinks truck.

    He looks to be one of the rare few that is content being an elite, hands on coordinator and not interested in being CEO.

    I don't need a big name. Give me a guy that can teach and coach a fundamentally sound defense. One with sound run fits and solid tackling that makes the other team earn everything. I am so sick of exotic pressures and guys out of position and our defenders looking at each other after another busted assignment. Give me elite offense, solid special teams and a sound solid tackling defense and I'll be happy.
