Re: What's your take on our assistant coaches?
Get rid of Ward & you'll go down the tube fast. Look, Spurrier's lack of enthusiasm for recruiting has been well documented. Now you take a guy who is arguably our best recruiter & is well connected & liked in the talent rich Atlanta area. Replace him with a guy that "needs a few seasons to get his feet under him & establish relationships" & see what you get.
If Spurrier was a dynamic recruiter, you might very well get away with that. But with basically 3-4 guys carrying the water for most all our recruiting, canning one of those guys would be a monumental mistake imo.
As for Botkin finding all these diamonds in the rough, Moore is the only one who's showed much of anything so far. Signing guys means squat, signing difference makers is the objective. The jury is still very much out imo.
Adams has great promise as a recruiter, developing players is still very much to be determined.
Sands has to step it up in both areas.
