    Might be old news but I heard it for the first time this morning on 610am. Heard a snippet that Hoke and London are both either considering or have been offered other jobs at the college level. Hoke, I think, as a defensive coordinator for Texas A and M and London as a defensive coordinator for Virginia, I might have the schools or positions wrong or mixed up, going off of my memory. Hoke for sure I would hate to see leave. Hoke, Marciano, and maybe London are probably the only 3 I would keep for sure out of our coaches now. Thoughts?

    I agree, I hope Hoke becomes our DC and Marciano stays as ST coordinator, and I think London is pretty good too. Oden the assistant DB coach would be ok to leave as the main DB coach with Hoke's promtion. I think I heard that McNair is going to be evaluating each coach individually so we might be able to pick and choose which coaches stay rather than wiping all of them out.

    I think Hoke was officially offered the A&M DC job, but I think he'd rather stay in the NFL as a DC if it is offered to him, and he would not have to move and switch to another team, so hopefully we'll make him an offer. Not sure if he'd take college DC over NFL DB coach, but among our current staff he'd definitely be the most likely candidate for DC, and I'm not sure who is going to be unemployed in the NFL that we can bring in as DC that would be better than Hoke. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Man it is gonna be a wild offseason. We have alot of teams switching coaches and a talented draft. Plus to top that off we have some players that can play hitting the FA market. It should be interesting and with some of the teams in cap hell we will have some big names going to new locales. I cannot wait.

    As long as we don't end up with Martz, Marriuchi, Haslett or any other re-tread. We need an up and comer with some fresh ideas.

    Gene Chizik (UT Longhorns) for defensive coordinator. Check out his bio in the above link.

    Was at Auburn before this year. You know when a guy like Chizik does what he did at Auburn last year...and then does the same thing the very next year with the Longhorns, you know he's got the goods. That's no fluke. There's no drop-off.

    To see UT utterly dismantle TTU when TTU was rolling over all other teams in its path, made me a believer. Chizik's Longhorn defense looks like an NFL squad out there.
     
  10. This is the second rumor we've seen recently about some coaches leaving. If you read between the lines, this coaching staff is not going to be here next year so they are looking or being sought for jobs. It's the end of the Capers era.....and Casserly gets to keep his job. Go figure.
