Dinardo, who brought back the magic, but then let the wheels come off.
I think Dinardo showed the future coaches how important it is to put a fence around Louisiana in recruiting. His teams always had alot of talent, no doubt about that.
He had a lot of talent, Hal Hunter beat ark. by 25 (35-10), an it wasn't that close.
Today I heard a couple of NFL analysts discussing why Cam Cameron was fired by the Ravens in December. The words used to describe his offensive scheme... simple, predictable and sophomoric. Isn't that what we already have? I just don't see how adding Cameron helps our situation.
Just curious Red, any chance you know who that coach was that Joe Dean dropped?
I think he hit the current day version of an IED!!!
I never understand NFL hires/fires............a guy loses his job on one losing team and gets another job on another losing team and they think something will change. In the NFl if you don't have close to the best players WHO DON'T GET HURT, you will not win. If you happen to play on a team that the General Manager is also the owner.........you are doomed!
I think the secret in college whether you are on defense or offense, if the coach does not come up with a system that fits the players HE HAS, he will probably not do very well. Coaches that MAKE players fit their systems regardless of their skills usually fail until they figure it out. I think Sumlin at A&M broke the code in the first year.
See I kind of disagree with that. Lets say Norv Turner is the Redskins OC, he obviously is not a read option coach, he likes to run alot of draws and screens, under center mostly. That obviously wouldn't work, however if he were fired and a team like say.....Dallas were to hire him, I think they would be alot better on offense. Point being, I think player personnel in the NFL has to match the OC.
Remember Cam and Les spent a number of years together coaching at UM. Cam is one of the few guys, in college, to have played football and basketball at Indiana University under coaches Lee Corso and Bob Knight.
To add, Les and Chan Gailey spent time coaching together with the Cowboys.
Thats why they are analysts and not coaches. Cam is known in the NFL, the guy knows his stuff. In his last 125 games as an NFL offensive coordinator, the teams Cameron was a part of in San Diego and Baltimore lost a total of only eight games by more than seven points. Thats a stat, not many in the NFL can match.
