  • Roots in Louisiana. Coached there under Saban. Helped OU transfer to the 3-4. Some NFL experience.
  • #5 by Dwight_K_Shrute on 10 Feb 2017
  • Has never been a position coach at the FCS or FBS level.  His time at LSU he was a recruiting intern and QC coach. Same at OU.  Some may call this negative, but it's just a simple fact.  Again may turn out to be a great coach but on paper we have some of the least experienced coaches in the SEC.

    Well you "figured" wrong!  Great hire, and here's the top 10 reasons why:

    1.  He's bald.
    2.  He was the defensive quality control coach at OU....so, he was no where near the woman beaters of  Mixon and DGB.
    3.  He looks crazy...and mean.
    4.  He went to LSU during some of their worst times, so he understands the "territory".
    5.  He has never coached at Baylor.
    6.  He's bald...and mean.
    7.  He once spoke to Saban.   
    8.  He coached the Falcons in the SB LI, so he has as many rings as you or I do.  Not pretentious, but probably needing a job.
    9.  Saban.
    10.  He's bald!

  • Seems like a very solid hire, the dude is known for helping teams transition to a 3-4 base. Louisiana guy so you hope he recruits it well. Our Louisiana recruiting has increased quickly thanks to Coach Michael Smith

    These seem like blue-collar hires...nothing sexy about them (resumes) but the recommendations suggest they are really good at their jobs (installation of the 3-4 seems to be a recurring theme)

    I guess it's better "at the moment" to have say our  3 & 4 Star players know his assignments than to have 5 Star elite athlete's (looking at you Ole Miss) playing out of position and lost.

    This year's Defense job is to build a attraction on national tv (ESPN or otherwise) and have commentator's gloating like a middle school girl over their performance...

    That will attract the right attention in Texas & Louisiana

    Great hire.

    OU and LSU connection means that you understand recruiting and winning at the highest level. NFL credentials help.

    As noted above, the recurring theme of installing the 3-4 means we are hellbent on players instinctively knowing what to do in the new scheme vs having to think.

    Ok,  I hope this is ingenious hire.  The guy has no experience in coaching except for the film room, and he has absolutely no experience coaching linebackers.  I hope him the best,  but this hire is a grasp at straws.

  • This, from an Oklahoma article two years ago, is all I need to know about him.

    "Mike Stoops' unit was the foundation of OU’s 10-2 record, earning them an Allstate Sugar Bowl berth against the team that helped make it all happen.

    “When we made this move to a 3-4, they helped us with a lot of install,” Mike Stoops said of the Alabama influence on the 2013 Sooners. “Chad Walker, who is our quality control guy who works with me in structuring our defense, spent four or five years with Nick. He’s helped me tremendously to put this thing together. They understand it better than anybody. Coach Saban has been running this and variations of all kinds of defenses.”

  • Holy cow patties, what is CBB thinking? This guy is the worst hire possible. He has never coached in the SEC, has never been a head coach and has never won a national championship with a team in the SEC. This is the worst hire ever.....fire Jeff Long, fire CBB and fire the cheerleaders coach. Hell while we are firing folks, fire the guy that cooks the hot dogs at the stadium.

    Says the guys that hate CBB and can't see the effort being made to get better. You try something, if it doesn't work, you make a change and go again until you get it right. They can live in last year all they want, but it is obvious the CBB refuses to live in last year. He is letting last years failures motivate him to improve the coaching staff and make changes in our areas of weakness.

  • To me, it's another example of how Bielema wants to go off into left field and show how he's the smartest guy in the room. It may work/it may not. It's an "unknown" variable, because he's never actually been a primary recruiter or a primary LB coach.  But I guess we'll see how it all turns out.  Bielema has gambled his future here at Arkansas on these last two hires, so for his sake and ours, I sure hope he got it right!
  • #47 by goodguytex on 11 Feb 2017
  • Seems like he is gonna wind up being solid recruiting help in Louisiana. There are big recruiting opportunities there and doors that are open that we need to take advantage of. Not just in Louisiana but Texas as well. Hopefully this coach as well as Coach Scott can help. We will see.


    He's a new Orleans native too. I bet he's got some relationships already established with HAS coaches in the area which has been a recruiting hotbed for programs like bama and LSU.

    It's come out in the media that LSU firing their WR coach and recruiting coordinator right after signing day has ruffled a lot of feathers with HS coaches in the New Orleans area.

    And supposedly there's a boycott from New Orleans area coaches with the LSU program. That's an opportunity we need to take advantage of.

    But either way, it's not just about one or two particular coaches. It's about an overall improving our defense. Making them solid in fundamentals, technique, and playing up to our potential. Hopefully these coaches, under Rhoades leadership, can help them do that.

  • Looks like a good hire to me. Who coaches ST now?

    My guess, when the 10th coach gets approved, we hire Charlie Partridge.
