    Re: Official: Fountain to coach Tight ends and offensive tackles

    That seems kinda weird to have someone only coach TE and Tackles? I dont think I have seen a staff that the entire offensive line isn't coached by 1 coach.

    We have a staff of specialists. Maybe its time to get aggressive.

    Nope when tackles and TEs are together, that mean stretch with a zone read. TEs will do a lot of hold...eerrrr blocking on the ends now and scooping with the tackles.

    I'd like to see us using the TE a lot more in passing situations. Or to make it even easier..to use them like other teams did against us all year.

    i am still incredibly confused as to how these decisions are being made w/o the input of the eventual OC. Either an OC is 'hired' and being kept under wraps for some crazy reason, or the hiring process is disjointed and chaotic.

    Interesting that it took this long to announce the retention of a current staff member.

    Re: Official: Fountain to coach Tight ends and offensive tackles

    Tackles/TE combination is very common.
    It most likely means he will be with the TE's wherever they are at during practice (with recievers or OL) and when they are with the OL, he will work with tackles as well..
    For the sophs that I coach, I am the OL coach, but have another guy with me that primarily works with tackles and TE's.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I think you guys are reading entirely too much into the timing of these hires!

    Probably not officially announcing until contracts are signed (thus, official). I would suspect CPR knows who OC & DC are, and those people are having input on assistants.

    Re: Official: Fountain to coach Tight ends and offensive tackles

    I have met Fountain a couple times and found that he was probably one of the most personable people I have ever met. Extremely nice guy who made you feel absolutely welcome. Happened to meet his family also. Beautiful wife and kids who were just as personable as he was. His sons were little gentlemen. Well pleased that he is staying. I can't help but feel that he was very well liked by our players and TE seemed to be one position that we were improving at.

    Re: Official: Fountain to coach Tight ends and offensive tackles

    I dont think this is to bad of idea. We have had pretty decent tight ends but with our line struggling a little, I think it may work a little better this way to get those couple positions more attention. Getting them more one on one attention should produce a better player.

    Taking a quick look at Houston and their coaches for comparison:

    Houston Coaches

    Kevin Sumlin - Head Football Coach

    Dana Holgorsen - Offensive Coordinator - Quarterbacks

    Jason Phillips - Assistant Coach - Co-Offensive Coordinator/WRs

    John Skladany - Defensive Coordinator-Safeties

    Leon Burtnett - Assistant Coach - Linebackers

    Joe Gilbert - Assistant Coach - Offensive Line

    Jim Jeffcoat - Assistant Coach - Defensive Line

    Tony Levine - Assistant Coach - Special Teams Coord/Inside WRs/TEs

    Clarence McKinney - Assistant Coach - Running Backs

    Zac Spavital - Assistant Coach - Cornerbacks

    Kliff Kingsbury - Quality Control - Offense

    Joe Alcoser - Director of High School Relations

    David Douglas - Graduate Assistant Coach - Offense

    Justin Moore - Director of Football Operations

    Wesley Nurse - Quality Control - Defense

    Calvin Thibodeaux - Graduate Assistant Coach - Defense


    We do not see the tackles/Tight ends mix...
