I talked to McKnight this spring and he talked about doing a lot of deceleration training to help defensive players with open field tackling. I am sure he doesn't deserve all the credit but we are a much better tackling team this year. Also our O-Line seem to be a lot more athletic this year. I am anxious to see what the team looks like after another year of his training.
The question is when we start winning and people take notice, can we afford to keep this assistants we have? Herman is a young guy and I'm sure would like to be a head coach someday. I can see teams coming at him strong at some point. I really, really like Wally Burnham. That guy is old school and is definitely getting all he can out of our D.
Better chance of Ash being our DC once Wally hangs up the headset.
exactly what i was thinking ... but having shane around doesn't hurt one bit ... makes my wonder why levitt wouldn't bring him on ... thinking we got a steal ... not to mention his success in recruiting we've been seeing ...
I still think the D Line coaches are average.... They could be worse but they really haven't done much for me. I think Wally has done a heckuva job tho and I agree, I would like to see Ash stick around and take over the Defense someday.
