Re: Is this Shawn Elliots "hotseat" year?
I doubt he'd be fired this year, unless the run game sucks too. However, there needs to be a solid improvement in the OL for TFL's/Sacks allowed in order for him to secure a long term future at USC.
He's a great recruiter, players like him, other coaches want him (Saban), and he is a good run game coordinator, but he now has 4 returning starters and the most depth at OL that we've had during Spurrier's tenure. All the pieces are there for him to succeed, now he just has to do it.
