    Could we go a year without a DC?

    Oh stop whining about DC threads -- I actually want to know. Could we go a year without hiring a DC and then get someone better than what's available out there now? Or is anytime a good time to find DC candidates? Would shorting the coaching staff by one just be too problematic? You wouldn't want to hire a fill-in person if you knew you were going to be hiring someone in a year (well, less than a year -- end of next season).

    Maybe? I'd say it's unlikely to be what we do, but hypothetically it could be a better option than whoever's still available out there . . ?


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    true this, but we can also get someone who just started at a different school, ala terry price.

    i could see us going a year without one. it may not be the ideal situation but rhoads could handle the play calling. it might even be a good way to ease him out of the position. and on top of those things, it would help the athletics depts financial issues.

    Some might argue we have gone more than a year without a D coordinator.

    Re: Could we go a year without a DC?

    what is the continual worry about a DC?
    geez... he WILL hire one, just not on OUR timeline, but - his.
    It's not like they are practicing right now.

    let it happen, i'm sure no matter who the selection is --
    some will think the sky is falling because of whatever knowledge they think they have and some will trust the coaches decision.

    I for one, will wait - and support the team until then.
    let's try to talk about ANYTHING else... for a change.

    Re: Could we go a year without a DC?

    Surprisingly, I actually like this idea. Have PR coach the defense next year and then as soon as we can go looking for a DC, go after him hard. It might not be all the bad seeing as PR was a DC not that long ago

    Re: Could we go a year without a DC?

    Not a bad idea...I just don't like the idea of having a first year head coach trying to balance that responsibility with preparing the defense all year. That would be a pretty tall task for a first year head coach.

    Re: Could we go a year without a DC?

    According to an article on rivals, all the coaches have been hired except for LBs and WRs coaches. Hypothetically, I don't think you want to go without a DC, especially for a program under a first year head coach.

    We have had a defensive coordinator recently? Did they get paid?

    33 is in contract negotiations....

    That's why he's disappeared lately.

    Was he trying to tell us something in this post?
