    Obviously it's difficult to keep quality coaches. I can understand why one would want to work with the Packers Organization, especially for more money. The Browns, however, are another story, I think you'd have to pay me 3x the money to work in Cleveland rather than with the Buckeyes. :biggrin:

    Nah.. it's totally different atmosphere...

    In Columbus you have to meet a certain expectation or you suck. In Cleveland, you just have to do better than the shitty guys before you. Could you imagine the status of these coaches if they were to bring Cleveland to the SuperBowl in the next 5 years? lol.

    I hope they both stay because they would be tough to replace at this time and they are both very good coaches. I had the chance to hear Hazell speak at the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association clinic and the guy knows his stuff and does a very good job of teaching it. We need to keep these two.

    Amen. As a lifelong Browns fan (from the white helmet, Otto Graham to Dante Lavelle era) it's sad to see how far they have fallen from the promise of their first two years back. For a coach this seems like an assignment to Siberia as oppossed to a step to a headcoaching assignment. The team you go to has to win in order for you to move on and up. I thought he (Tucker) did a phenominal job. By the end of the season that was as good a defense as you were apt to see despite all the injuries.

    These would be two HUGE losses if we did lose these guys. I sure hope it's not b/c our administration will not increase their salaries (I have a feeling we could afford it).

    With that said, these guys are really good at what they do. There's a reason both of them are mentioned in coaching circles for their position, and were featured on's flash piece with top coaches.

    I really don't want to lose these two. Not only are the amazing coaches but they are two of our better recruiting coaches. I remember a number of recent recruits mentioning both these guys, along with Fickell. Man, could imagine losing all three!?

    One reason I did not mind Snyder leaving. I feel Tucker is the real gem on the defensive coaching staff with recruiting and his coaching ability. But I am torn with him coming up to coach my Browns...

    Oh well, go with the tie breaker. Buckeyes could win the national championship next year vs the Browns being 3-4 years away from the playoffs. BUCKEYES!!!

    We're not going to be able to hold on to Tucker for too much longer unless we make him DC, and that does not appear to be in the cards anytime soon. If he ends up in Cleveland though, the Browns will be putting together a coaching staff with lots of connections to OSU. Maybe that would help open up the pipeline for OSU players to Cleveland.

    I would have thought we'd be able to hold on to Hazell for a few years. Further, he seems like a guy better suited to, and more interested in, the college game. But, he is a hot commodity. I predict he'll rise to the top over the next several years.

    This business of losing our favorite assistants is always painful. But, if you think about it, there's a strong upside. If Tressel can establish OSU as a stepping stone to coordinator spots, the NFL, or head coaching spots, all of the best and brightest up and coming coaches will want to come to OSU to serve an apprenticeship under Tressel. Woody had that kind of thing going. How many of Woody's assistants could we list who went on to bigger and better things?

    See, what I was thinking back when Snyder was interviewing for the LSU job was that if he went (which at the time I wasn't too fired up about), Tucker would be immediately promoted to DC which I was all for. Now, we could lose Tucker and then if Snyder has a good year...him next year. Who knows, with our defensive talent this year and the rate at which the NFL has been snatching up college coaches like crazy lately, I have a feeling we could be having practically an entirely new staff come next season. I would hate to see that type of "coaching colonic cleansing" (like that alliteration?) take place...but it is realistic nonetheless.

    Bollman, well.......

    If you are looking for teams that aren't losing coaches look towards the bottom of the standings.

    So long as they are moving up it is all good.

    That's why I wasn't upset over the talk of Snyder being interviewed at LSU. Tucker is regared as one of the best recruiters on the staff behind JT and Fickel while Snyder is regarded as one of the worst. You can't expect to keep these young guys around a long time. If they're even close in coaching ability, you have to keep Tucker over Snyder due to his recruiting. There's going to be a lot of leadership and experience returning next year so the growing pains would have been a lot less for Tucker next year than Snyder last year.

    Terps coach Franklin takes job with Packers
    By Rick Snider
    Maryland receivers coach James Franklin resigned yesterday to become the Green Bay Packers' receivers coach.
    Franklin starts in Green Bay today after receiving an unsolicited call from Packers offensive coordinator Tom Rossley, who said he'd heard of Franklin from friends. Former Maryland coach Mark Duffner is now the Packers' linebackers coach. Franklin said he wasn't looking to leave Maryland.
    "I'd just like an opportunity to become a head coach some day and this is another step in the right direction," he said. "I've had an unbelievable experience at Maryland. I was fortunate to work for [coach] Ralph Friedgen and learned so much in a short time. I have very, very strong feelings for Maryland and the area."
    Franklin, 33, coached five seasons at Maryland after one year at Idaho State. His departure is a double hit for the Terrapins because he also served as recruiting coordinator for the last two years. Earlier this month, Maryland signed a class ranked in the top 20 by several national recruiting services.
    "It wasn't me, it was coach Friedgen and the system," Franklin said. "Maryland will keep on rolling."
