    His name is gaining traction on a return to UF. What is everyone’s opinion on him? Both as a coach and a recruiter ?

    His perceived recruiting prowess is the hook, imho.

    How was his coaching at his last two stops?

    Bandwagoning on the familiar name

    He's a recruiter and nothing else. If you think our tackling is bad now, wait until he gets here.

    His recruiting is just the right amount of dirty to not get us in trouble.
    Coaching? Meh, but can't go anywhere from where we are but up.
    I still blame Grantham and feel TGray was dealt a shitty hand(cuff) by Jabba the hut.

    Tough to be sure, but that's my sense on Gray as well.

    247 its reporting that he it’s the leading candidate and that he could be coaching both the CBs and the safety’s.

    Maybe but I still blame Jabba as it is his scheme. Who in their right mind leaves D. Smith one on one inside the 15, all the while playing soft coverage. (This Bama's last TD against us).

    No so fast my friend, Marquand Manuel name in the mix, could this be a co-coordinator scenario ??

    Love the Marquand Manuel choice. Will attract recruits and also will be a sound coach who has worked at the highest level. Also, making Him CoDC night push Grantham out sooner than later!

    First of all it’s 247 who it’s reporting it not me and to be honest I haven’t seen Manuel been mentioned by anyone except a few fans.

    He's an elite DB coach and recruiter, but he's average as a defensive coordinator.

    Jaycee Horn at South Carolina has a 2020 first-round grade at DB. He also coached first-round picks Matt Elam, Keanu Neal, and Vernon Hargreaves and 10 of his players ended up being 1st or 2nd team ALL-SEC players.

    He recruited overall twenty-three 4-star players (or higher) in the past 9 seasons. An average of 2.5 bluechips/year.

    If he comes back to coach DBs, then it's a better fit than English or Gray combined.

    If MM is in the discussion, that’s really intriguing. ESP as a Co-DC.

    LSU's DB coach. He's got to be getting tired of the BS.
