Co-DC Greg Mattison (Official Thread)

    Looking over the timeline, Mattison was sole DC from 2011-2014. Durkin was hired as DC for 2015 and Mattison demoted to DL, then one year into a three year extension. Durkin left after one year for the Maryland job and Don Brown was hired Dec 21, 2015. Mattison was offered a two year extension which he signed Feb 17, 2017 to continue as DL coach.

    So he is presently still under contract for another five weeks, but denies having been offered another extension.

    If I'm him I view my loyalty being repaid with diminishing roles and diminishing extensions not commensurate to the product I put on the field given the level of difficulty regarding the job I walked into.

    Dude was a damn miracle worker given what he inherited from Rich Rod's recruiting classes.

    I would be good with Washington as the LB position coach, but would still love Marcus Freeman...I think he could learn from the senior coaches here and be groomed for the DC position pretty quickly. But I will defer to the staff on that one, either scenario sound great to me.

    Amen. I always despise the state up north, but I always respected Mattison and the way he coached and went about his business. I really think if he applies his style of coaching to the talent we have, we are going to have a hell of a good defense.

    His granddaughter was at TSUN, he was a holdover from Hoke, but wanted to stick around while she was there, so he volunteered to take a demotion in order to stay on the staff.

    In all fairness, I think it is quite progressive to know Hail to the Spincters in sign language.

    Nah he's good at his job just old. He's there to guide the new young up and comer DC then retire.

    But seriously, a little bit, but he doesn't have the track record of incompetence that Beck did so "trust the coaches".
