    Well, it certainly can't hurt.

    Will AJ make a good coach? We probably don't know the answer to that yet, but it's nice he's getting a shot with the Texans at a coaching career.

    He was like a mother bird to Hopkins when he first came in so we'll see.

    Still would've liked to see Welker stick around for one more season with Coutee though.

    He will probably take on a Welker role

    I would love to see what AJ could do with a young talent like Wesley.

    Very cool. I have no doubt that he will be a solid addition to the staff as a mentor and excellent example of a very dedicated worth ethic and high standards.

    And also glad to see that there's apparently no hard feelings between AJ and O'Brien.

    Will certainly be cool to see Andre around the organization again and back on the sidelines on game day.

    He’s an adviser, not a coach.

    yeah.. he will advise players how to run routes, handle opponents, be open to QB on field, how to be a vet on field and off, act as stable force and leader in locker room. I hope he does not advise how to select agent...

    This is great move as well as excellent PR giving a beloved player larger role. Congrats AJ!

    One of the first things I wondered. Is this purely a cal pick or is OB all the way on board with it?

    Maybe that's a stupid question.

    Yep, that's a stupid question. LOL

    BOB picks the coaching staff.

    I think AJ's going to be a great hire if his work with Hopkins is any indication.

    Except AJ is supposed to be working with both the coaching staff and the scouts so both OB & Gaine had to approve (or be instructed by Cal).

    About what? OB presumably doesn't have authority to hire AJ to work with Gaine & the scouts. Are you claiming OB has authority over Gaine?

    I don’t think he’s there to help the guy that told him he wasn’t good enough anymore. I think he’s an ear/mouthpiece for Cal and or the FO

    I think/dont know for sure that BOB has control over who on the coaching staff he hires/promotes etc... See: Tim Kelly

    I also dont think that Cal told BOB to hire AJ. I do think AJ was hanging around the club alot last yr and when Welker moved on it was logical to move AJ into Welkers spot and since AJ's a local legend they gave him some PR stuff to do as well.

    I think BOB hired AJ because he saw 1st hand how well he helped show Hopkins the ropes. In short BOB hired AJ on merit and AJ wasn't a forced hire by Cal/Gaine. Things are changing down on Kirby.
