Default Coaching Changes?

Does anyone think the HBC will replace anyone of the staff that isn't hired away? Is Deke's job safe? Did he do enough to keep his job? How about Joe Robinson?

Also, if Whammy does leave and I hope he doesn't, would we promote a current asst or look elsewhere?

Will we lose more coaches this off-season and if so, who do you think will take another job elsewhere?

From what I have heard, no one is being fired. I am also not aware of anyone in danger of being snatched away. I understand some schools are interested in Ward as DC but he has indicated he won't make a lateral move. I haven't heard his name mentioned as a HC.

I would like to see the staff stay in place, but realistically speaking, I expect a couple changes.

I would like to see Joe R. have another year in the system. His special team's at LSU were awesome, maybe he just needs a few more starters on ST's to help.

I'm not quite sold on Deke, but he definitely earned another year in my opinion.

I hope we can keep Jr and Elliott on staff, but I have a hunch they will get some very appealing offers in the next couple of weeks/ months. Both seem like they would make great OC's. Could we see Spurrier give one of them the OC label, to keep them on board?

I think Deke is safe. He's a pretty good recruiter from what I hear.

I do wonder how much longer Jr. will work for his father.

Florida and Wake are already looking for positions to be filled and since Franklin was a candidate for the socal job, I expect him to get more offers. Especially with the rape scandal they have going on in Nashville. He might be thinking it's time to get out of dodge before the crap hits the fan.

I think Whammy needs another year or three to get good head coaching offers. He's only been a DC for two seasons now and its not like we sucked on defense when he took over. Also, he has about as sweet a gig as you can get as a DC, with the HBC pretty much totally focused on offense and golf, he's basically the assistant head coach. Hopefully everyone will hang in here. They should give mangus a raise since they had to skip him last time for the incident. All the defensive guys deserve raises too except deke who is a newbie. Sands also probably deserves one.

You are absolutely correct, I forgot about their titles.

And yes, Mangus just might get a lucrative offer.

What a bonus it would be if we can keep everyone on board at least one more year.

Default Re: Coaching Changes?

Ward-Can't see him leaving yet. Heck, if he stays he could be the next head coach when spurrier retires.

Brown-Can't see him leaving either. Still a young coach, and has no exerience on the major college level outside of us.

Botkin-No way this guy leaves after Whammy brought him back to the college ranks.

Adams- With the D improving, I think Adams is safe for another year...how the young guys progress through the summer into next year will be telling of his coaching ability.

On offense:
Mangus-I could see it. Wake needs a new coach, and I think Mangus would fit there. Could he go be the OC at Florida? Out of all our coaches, I think Mangus is the most likely to be snatched up.

Sands-Can't see him leaving, but you never know.

Elliott-Can't see him leaving, but money talks. Seems like a guy that this is where he wants to be, and like Ward, could be the next coach after Spurrier retires (at least could be the OC officially).

Spurrier Jr.-Again, don't think he goes anywhere, but how long does he want to be under his dad? Does he want to go and make his own name. I can't see him taking the OC job at Florida, and I can't see him being a HC yet. Only way I see him go anywhere is as an OC.

Robinson-Could be a guy I see we relieve of his duties. Special teams really didn't improve much this year, but I think he did discover Elliott Fry

Mangus is only two seasons away from the incident though. I think that he might need a longer while to rehab the image and demonstrate stability. He's the kind of guy that would get a good offer when we win a title.

I'm hoping this is the attitude that all our asst's have. Win the SEC at SC and wait for your dream job.

I think Mangus needs another year to pass from his arrest before he gets serious offers to move. I could be wrong but that incident has cost him.

I can't see that happening. High reward (if Muschamp can fix things), but high risk (that coaching seat is hot as heck right now).

Interesting that Muscamp also fires his OL coach.

But no way Mangus gets that job. Clay Helton and Neil Calloway are front runners for those positions.
