Default This Could Be The Way To Go For A DC!

These are some of the top DC in all of college football by Rivals.com. I personally wouldn’t mind Bud Foster seeing that V-Tech has had a defense that even puts many of the top nation’s programs to shame. If G. Kubiak is looking for young coaches then this would be the best way to go. I think that this is the route to go in order for all Texan fans to get a top notch DC and at the same time allowing G. Kubiak to mold a new coach to his football philosophy

DEFENSIVE COORDINATORS

1. Bud Foster (Virginia Tech)

Nobody has been on Frank Beamer's veteran-laden staff longer and no Hokies assistant is more responsible for the program's rise into a national power.

Sure, the defending ACC champs are best known for special teams, but they also have developed a reputation for stingy defense under Foster, who is entering his 19th year in Blacksburg and 10th in charge of the defense. Twice a finalist for the Broyles Award, given annualy to the nation's top assistant, he uses an aggressive style that often doesn't allow offenses to stick with their game plans. That was certainly the case in 2004, when the Hokies finished in the top five in the nation in nearly every major defensive category.

2. Bo Pelini (LSU)

The arrival of this defensive guru in Baton Rouge is another big reason to believe that the Tigers are a legitimate national title contender.

A former NFL coach, Pelini has worked magic with less talent in his career. In his only season at Nebraska in 2003, he directed a defense that tied a school record by creating 47 turnovers and gave up the second-fewest points in the nation. Last season at Oklahoma, he worked as a co-defensive coordinator and the Sooners allowed just 94 rushing yards a game, the sixth-best total in the nation.

Expect similar results to follow with the Tigers. Pelini's attacking style should mesh well with his new personnel, and he has one of the most talented defenses in the country to work with.

3. Gene Chizik (Texas)

Mack Brown's biggest offseason acquisition was probably not a recruit or any transfer but a new addition to his staff.

With NFL veteran Greg Robinson leaving for the head coaching job at Syracuse, Brown was focused on finding someone with a major reputation and an impressive resume to run his defense. He may have landed the best candidate on the market in Chizik. A 20-year coaching veteran, who designs his defenses around speed, he produced great results as Auburn's defensive coordinator. The Tigers finished 13th or better nationally in total defense in each of his three seasons at the SEC program, including 2004 when he captured the Broyles Award. Gene Chizik left Auburn for a chance to direct the Texas defense.
Duplicating that type of production may be more difficult now. Unlike at Auburn, Chizik won't be working under a defensive-minded coach like Tommy Tubberville.

4. Mickey Andrews (Florida State)

It's no surprise that Bobby Bowden's right-hand man landed on this list. Andrews won the first Broyles Award in 1996 and has long been considered one of the nation's top assistants.

That might be most apparent right now. While in recent years the Seminoles offense has struggled to put up the big numbers of past teams, the defense has remained an intimidating force. It has finished among the nation's top five in rushing yards allowed in seven of the last 12 seasons, including 2004.

Andrews excels at utilizing his depth, normally rotating a handful of players along the defensive line and several of his back-ups have developed into stars.

good post.

The only thing I worry about with grabbing a guy like these is how they will be able to lead other coaches on Defense that have been with NFL teams for a while.

I think that any number of these guys would be well respected seeing that most come from top notch programs and have conrinued to have success over their entire careers.

Sometimes when I get on the MB I get disgusted with one bogus opinion after another, but mostly i see people sincerely interested in the team, do research, and post good opinions. Although sometimes I dont agree with them, I can respect them. I was really impressed with this one in particular. Good job.

I agree with you on Foster but also favor Chizik...I used to watch alot of Auburns games and their D was always stingy.

I agree that it's nice to see such a well thought out post, but I am unsure that I want to bring in a college coach with no NFL experience as our DC.

Unless I overlooked it(and if I did...my bad!), or it wasn't listed, none of these guys have NFL experience.
That, in itself is not a bad thing, but in our situation with an inexperienced HC and relatively young staff (Sherman not withstanding), I think I'd lean toward a DC who has been in the league before.
All of these guys sound like solid NFL DC candidates, at least at some point. I would just feel more comfortable going the other route.

I really like Mickey Andrews. It seems they have the hardest hitting defenses and it mostly comes from the Defensive backs. IMO, he is the only one from the list i would like to see as our DC.

Mickey Andrews has been at FSU for a while now it seems. Wonder why he doesn't leave. Methinks he's next in line for the head job there, which if I was told I'd be the next to takeover FSU....I'd stay put too.

I appreciate everyone's opinions. Just looking for a way that might fix the problem our team is having with establishing a new DC. There has been many coaches that have risen to the top in the NFL as HC's/OC's/DC's. EX; JimmyJohnson and Nick Saban.

Good article on Ray Rhodes gives insight to his relationship with John Marshall.

I hope it is Marshall. Sounds like a great defensive coach with a really solid football background.

Marshall has an impressive resume, without a doubt.

"Marshall spent three seasons (1999-01) as the assistant head coach/defensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers. His defense ranked fourth in the NFL with 105 takeaways over his three-year tenure.

"...was part of two Super Bowl squads in San Francisco from 1989-97 working with the defensive line from 1989-93, linebackers from 1994-96 and two years as defensive coordinator from 1997-98."

And the fact that he's just a linebackers coach right now means that we'll have no problem from the Seahawks if he becomes our DC.

I like this choice. Good information all the way around.

Marshall would have been with SF at the same time as Kubiak. He does like to bring in coaches that he has been with before at some level. Maybe that is why there is such a lack of news.
