    If true, it's an awesome hire. Great coach and tremendous Florida recruiting connections.

    Cheers

    yeah, that would be awesome if true. He has experience with Wally at USF, and held the same position with UNC, for the past 3 years.

    Would be a great hire, IMO. Maybe he hopes to be a DC eventually and wants to work under the best :smile:.

    Looks like a solid hire IMO, it's nice to have a guy who the staff is familiar with. It's also never bad when you we get guys coming in from other BCS programs to coach here.

    This is pretty common for assistant coaches.

    Assuming this is true, any chance he brings a signee with him?

    Definitely a good hire here. A good step for him going from an assistant to being the dbacks coach. Hopefully this strenghtens our recruiting in the south even more.

    You do realize that it is a lateral move and that he will have the same job here as he did there right?

    New HC at UNC too. Makes sense to take a look around at what's available.
