    interviewing for the DC position and getting turned down or canceled on before he just gives the job to Bill Clay? Who else is in the running still? Which mid-major has the best defense and DC? Who can we get besides Bill Clay?

    Good questions. No answers from me. I don't understand it. Can't we just give some great coach a 100k raise and get him over here?

    I am glad Miles is taking so long with the DC. It is so critical. I would like to go the Texas route and just offer a great existing DC enough more money that he comes over. Or, I would like to get an excellent NFL position coach who could be considered a candidate for an NFL DC job but is interested in returning to college coaching. It would be great if we could get one of Belichik’s defensive postion coaches, because if they are good enough for him, they are good enough for me.

    Texas didn't waste anytime. They got Auburn's DC. Seems like a very good hire too.

    How do you know Miles is getting turned down, you been listening to his interviews? Maybe he hasn't offered it to all of these guys you think he has.

    I know when I hire someone I never just get tired and hire just anybody.

    SportsTalk radio today in Knoxville hosted by Jimmy Hyams from Natchidoches and formerly of the State Times / Morning Advocate said that Georgia defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Rodney Gardner is interviewing today for the DC job at LSU. This would be a very solid hire. Gardner is going places, he was instrumental in assembling the talented Vols 1998 national championship team as well as significantly improving recruiting classes at UGA for the last 5 years.


    Besides being a great recruiter in this conference I cannot say much else. I want to know about his defensive philosophy etc. like ... does his alignment include a drop linebacker?
