These are some of the top DC in all of college football by Rivals.com. I personally wouldnt mind Bud Foster seeing that V-Tech has had a defense that even puts many of the top nations 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. .
