Coastal Carolina, Absegami and Amsterdam are real coaching hot beds. I bet he learned a lot from that girls basketball coach. Still, he cannot do much harm as assistant coach STs and he can be coached up.

Texans new S&C coach changed Jeremy Lin’s career
Quote:
But by the time he left Cambridge, Lin wasn’t that same skinny kid anymore. Four years later, he weighed 200 pounds and had a legitimate shot of making it in the NBA.

He can thank the Texans’ new strength and conditioning coach, Craig Fitzgerald, for that. And he does.

“He’s a great, great, great guy,” Lin said after a Rockets practice last week. “I can’t say more about him. He changed my career definitely. When I showed up, I was 170 and I was the weakest player to ever show up in the Harvard basketball program, just weight-wise. And when I left, I was one of the stronger guys there. He just taught me how to be more mentally tough. He pushed me. Man, he’s awesome.”

See, Fitzgerald, whom Bill O’Brien is bringing with him to the Houston Texans from Penn State, was the director of strength and conditioning at Harvard while Lin was in college and had a huge impact on the point guard’s career.
Quote:
“He just pushes you in ways you don’t think you can be pushed,” said former Penn State defensive lineman Daquan Jones, who is projected to be a high-round draft pick, at the Senior Bowl. “It’s a different type of workout. You test your body in every type of way, in every weather condition. It’s just something that gets you in shape and gets you ready for the football game.”

Jim Bernhardt will join Bill O’Brien as his Director of Football Research as part of a new staff of 16 assistant coaches announced Wednesday. O’Brien refers to Bernhardt, his former position coach at Brown University, as his "right-hand man". For the past two years with the Nittany Lions, Bernhardt served as the Director of Player Development.
“He’s a fantastic friend and a great mentor,” O’Brien said January 3 in an exclusive interview with Drew Dougherty. “He helped me get into coaching so I owe him a lot.”

This Bernhardt got this job because "“he helped me get into coaching so I owe him a lot.” ? Does this sound like Kubiak's rationale for hiring his friends from Denver ?

Kubiak wasn't the first coach to do it nor will he be the last. It was just that Kubiak's friends didn't cut it while they were here and he didn't fire them quickly enough. Let's just hope O'Brien's friends are better.

Correct. As I have said before, Pete Carroll fired his buddy as OC not to long after hiring him. I'm sure it was a tough decision to make, but, he made it. We see how that turned out.

Maybe Kubiak has evolved, but, when he was here, the guy was terrible at making hard decisions.

So basically we've got a college coaching staff for the first time coaching an NFL team. Anybody a little nervous about that experiment ?
