Holloman maybe a grad assistant soon as well.

Thats the best news I've heard in weeks. He could be a HUGE help back there with fresh NFL knowledge(Does Dallas run a 3-4?) and work ethic. Even better to know that we welcome him in so quickly as a GA.....Kudos to the staff

Does anyone know if Shaq is still on as a GA?

He is no longer a GA - Shaq is now part of the official coaching staff, as a Quality Control Coordinator, along with Scott Spurrier.....

I have no doubt the defense will play fast as we have a bunch of athletes on that side of the ball. It's the discipline part I'm worried about.

I still remember that Ellis Johnson said he had the best football smarts of any player he had ever coached.

That says a lot.

I think he will make a very strong contribution.

Devonte certainly played his position well, too and he was doing very well with the Cowboys. I feel so sorry for him but think he could be another strong addition to the coaching staff.

If our d played as fast as coach Ward talks they would be unstoppable.

Devonte as GA?

Yes please!

it is bittersweet to be able to get holloman back. sad about his injury but glad coach ward thinks enough of him to ask him to join the staff. winners always land on their feet somehow. :)

We are so classy it's awesome. I love how he's like, "We said the system, and we stay true to our word." Then on Holloman, "If he's released he will be out here next week." We take care of our own. Recruits will see that and want to play for us because of it.

I want us to be fast but the last I time I remember going full blast speed was against Auburn 2011 and they used it against us and basically picked us apart with screens and QB draws, we never could stop them when we needed to. Not saying this will happen, just saying we should be a little wary of going full, full speed.

They also went full full speed against Ole Miss in '09 though, still can't believe they didn't tire any that game. I'm only 22 but I've seen the highlights from 1980, '84 and '87 they were moving like the fire-ant and black death years.

I think he is talking about lining up fast between plays to their changing formations, and making quick adjustments to the plays as they launch. The execution is still about playing your assignment.

Really feel that Holloman is going to be a great assistance to the coaching staff. He is a real leader and will let these players know what it takes to get to the next level. :happycoc:

I think he is referring to the fact that TAMU is running a very fast no huddle type of offense, and he wants our guys to be ready for it. It hasn't been talked about much, but they run one of those systems that can be crazy up tempo when they want to.

He's had good things to say about Taylor Stallworth all offseason. He's gonna be a big time player for us in the future.

Would love to see Hollman on the side line
