I think Bruce is only interested in working with Munch, and will again when Much gets another HC gig.

But with the 2013 football season behind them, it is definitely time for head coach Kirk Ferentz and his diligent staff to take on the next task at hand — finishing up the long and arduous task of recruiting.

Usually, the team’s top recruiter is given the task of securing a quality quarterback. For Iowa, this job has usually gone to Kirk Ferentz’s son Brian Ferentz , who is the Hawkeyes’ offensive line coach. Kirk Ferentz spent is playing days as a Hawkeyes under the tutelage of his father before beginning his coaching career under legendary NFL coach Bill Belichick. Since returning to Iowa, the younger Ferentz has proved to be one of his father’s most trusted coaches.
...
...It has been assumed by some that Kirk Ferentz was always keeping the seat warm in Iowa City for his son. The younger Ferentz wouldn’t have assumed the throne by bloodline, alone and was given the opportunity to learn and coach under his father...
Could have been family. Could be he got some guarantees. Could be Texans made him wait too long or he felt he was "second fiddle"?

Default Re: O'Brien & His Coaching Staffs

The Falcons did have some OL injuries. But some have most of NFL teams. Dunn's first year on his own as formal OL coach showed nothing to base a smart choice for OL coach on this team. I believe we will regret this appointment......and can only hope that the rest of offensive coaching will mask this wart......until it can be removed......just make no sense whatsoever to me.

All this conjecture with no data... you know I couldn't stand that, soooo....

He'd been at ATL for six seasons; these are the sacks allowed numbers from ESPN.com....

2013 -- 44
2012 -- 29
2011 -- 26
2010 -- 23
2009 -- 27
2008 -- 17

here are the Texans' sacks allowed totals for comparison...

2013 -- 42
2012 -- 28
2011 -- 33
2010 -- 32
2009 -- 25
2008 -- 32

This might not be such an awful hire.
IF he can bring our pass protection up to ATL's pre-2013 levels of proficiency

Wasn't he just an assistant O-Line coach until 2012, when they got worse?

I feel like since he's the HC and an offense oriented one at that, he's got more leeway in my eyes with his offensive staff hires. I think Godsey is a good hire though.

I like the defensive staff, especially RAC and Vrabel. I also like that WE DON"T HAVE MARCIANO ANYMORE PRAISE JESUS, but I think he was canned before O'Brien got here.

Not a lot of big names for sure. Also concerning that we're going without an OC.

Though, Crennel/Kollar/Vrabel is pretty damn exciting.

Yes, I heard that too and it is a concern for me as well. I was hoping he was just waiting to name his OC when NE was out of the playoffs. Maybe he's waiting for the Super Bowl to end before naming his OC. Yeah sure, that's it, he's waiting for the Super Bowl to end so he can pick his OC from Denver or Seattle. That must be it! Right?

Not hate..........just pointing out that McClain is not as "embedded" with the Texans as some believe.........and much of his predictions in the past year has been misses.......and much of his "news" has been "after the fact."

FWIW, I like McClain. I don't get the hate he gets from people on the board here and definitely don't get it from the bloggers which I see all the time on twitter. Just seems petty.
