What's your take on our assistant coaches?
I'm not a big "fire this coach, fire that coach" guy. And to can a guy in the season is extremely drastic. That said, here's my (worthless) opinion on our coaches:
I love Spurrier. He has faults but who doesn't? This is an assistant coach thread, so...
Mangus- I like him. I think he does a good job and he's a good recruiter. Safe, IMO.
Spurrier Jr- good coach and recruiter. Wish he'd have done a better job with the non qualifiers but, despite his last name, he's safe for me.
Sands- my jury is out on him. Seems to do a decent job. He needs to push Davis to a monster year.
Elliott- I like him but I'm beginning to cock my eye at him. Shaw bailed that line out so many times last year. Of all the individual units, I was most disappointed in the offensive line on Thursday. They played soft and better man up. He's safe but needs to produce ASAP.
Whammy Ward- He's safe but, as Ellis' players filter out, he won't be safe if his defense is bad two years straight. Next year will be his prove it year, IMO.
Deke Adams- IMO, he better improve this bunch or he should be gone in December. I've not seen much from him in the way of coaching and development.
Botkin- Same as Deke, IMO. I know we have talent at LB but I've not been blown away by their play.
Grady Brown- I think he gets a mulligan this year if the young'uns show some improvement. I think Brown has done a good job.
Joe Robinson- Seems like a nice guy but I thought he should have been let go last year. He can't get guys to block and tackle on STs. And I don't care what he did at LSU.
Odd thread, I know, but ACC football is too painful to watch.
