    Tate Martell to linebacker?
     
  4. Ohhhhhh. He thought he had to transfer to the defense. I see the mistake now.
     
  5. Doesn't seem correct. He was ST only during that time. Only had a position title last year.

    Very, very good ST's coach, I dig it.

    it's going to be pretty simple who is to blame if the secondary is lackluster next season and beyond: Hafley. Day is putting a ton of faith in his boy Hafley. Barnes hasn't even coached DBs and he has one recruit to his name, so I can only assume Day thinks Barnes is worth an assistant position (and worth giving the boot to Taver) to coach the special teams and be Hafley's well-paid lackey.

    Anyways, I guess Hafley's getting the total control he wanted over the secondary. I still have big question marks with recruiting of the DBs and can only assume Washington might be a guy that helps out a lot there.

    It's pretty funny, Greene and Kurelic on Bucknuts were saying that Day was either going to hire a high-level secondary coach to go with Hafley or he'd hire a special teams coach with recruiting acumen. Turns out, Day did half of both: a special teams coach with no recruiting acumen and who is going to assist in the secondary but has no experience with that. Yay?

    Won't lie... seems like a wasted hire.

    Should have went out and got the best recruiter possible.

    ST's could've been a joint deal.

    I may know less about all of the new hires than anybody else on this board. But from what I've read, Hafley and Washington appear to be considered unanimous home runs on this board. Mattison appears to be a solid double if not triple. Offensively, Yurcich is talked about like he's a home run. And then the same guy who made those hires takes a called third strike on Barnes? That seems highly unlikely to me. What seems much more likely is that Day made another solid hire with Barnes, with the hire being based on more than all of us know combined. Or to put it another way, trust the head coach.

    Seeing a lot of negativity on the part of some posters with little justification.

    Day may prove to be another Urban, another Earle, or another Fickell. I'm thinking between Urban and Earle. Which on balance wouldn't be all bad.

    I'd settle for him being the second coming of Ryan Day.

    The last guy with that name that was the head coach had a 1.000 win %.

  15. Gotcha. One of the quoted tweets up-thread botched it then and had it backwards (LB coach the entire time and ST his last year only).
