So we have the following changes on the coaching staff

Offensive Coordinator/QB coach - Montgomery replaces Mullen
WR coach - ? Replaces Gary
Defensive Coordinator- ? Replaces Wallerstedt
Inside linebacker coach - ? Replaces Wallerstedt
Defensive line coach - ? Replaces Lambert who was interim replacement for Curry. Lambert has hard enough time focusing on the game.  He can't coach a position also. 

So we are having the tryout meeting on Friday.  Our season ended almost 2 months ago and we still have all these openings on the coaching staff?

If you look at that, we have 8 FT coaches. We are allowed 10, used to be 9 but they just added 1 more.

Skalaski replaced Curry and is over Special Teams.

I'm thinking Brad Queen may be the 9th assistant:  https://twitter.com/coachbradqueen - check his bio

Wouldn't shock me if Lambert handles defense. That is his background.

I actually really like that idea.  With the extra assistant now, it takes the load off of somebody else, and allows for more player development, which is going to have to be our forte at this level. 

I think they are going to bet the farm on a grad transfer at QB.

Good, so he will have no one to blame but himself when we field the worst defense in the conference.

Guess Lambert is a trendsetter if he goes w/o a named DC. We'd be only program in the country doing that.

Couple of things.
As the defensive line was young and wasnít too bad, they could actually become a strength next season.  Iím still concerned with the LBís and I have no idea what we have in the defensive backfield as we play such terrible schemes and zones.
A good qb could make this team respectable.  We have good, not great rbís who got fewer yards than they should due to the box being stacked.  If the freshman WRís are decent and a new qb can get them the ball, we might not lose 45-14 every week. 
Maybe we lose 35-28 instead.

Have you ever heard of the Dubois Rose method?

Sounds like Brad Queen has been promoted from grad assistant to a defensive assistant coach position.  We have 2 open vacancies remaining.

Lambert will definitely hire a DC, anyone saying Lambert is going to be the DC is wrong. He will have lots of input in our defense but you canít be a HC and a DC at the same time.

There are plenty of schools that have their head coach call offensive or defensive plays.  There are many NFL teams that do as well.   In fact, with Lambert knowing his own situation, I'd be more surprised if he wasn't planning to take a more active role with the defense.

We save money by not naming a DC, allowing us to pay our lower level coaches more, or pay Shane Montgomery more.

I'd prefer a DC that knew what he was doing.Lambert showed us his chops as the ST coach.. No thanks

We will hire a DC, Lambert may end up calling plays but we will have someone else with the DC title.


You wonít find one HC at the FBS level with an OC/DC title next to their name.

Lambert has one year left.  I don't really care what he does.

EDIT:  I take that back.  Be outlandish.  Give sportswriters something to write about other than the losses each week.  Wear a kilt and talk in a brogue in the post-game press conference.  Call everybody Skipper.

Mike Leach at WSU... I believe Paul Johnson at GaTech is also both HC and OC

If he's going to be outlandish, I prefer he surprise everyone by going undefeated instead of wearing a kilt.

Montgomery makes almost $8k less than Mullen. We didn't up our investment there.

To be fair, I understand what he's saying.  Mike Leach has an OC... he just doesn't have to do the same amount of work as most OC's.

With that said, many of college football's brightest minds are head coach/playcallers. To this list you can add:

Scott Frost
Dan Mullen
Chip Kelly
Lincoln Riley
Gus Malzahn
Scott Satterfield

There are far fewer head coaches that call defensive plays, but it wouldn't be unheard of.

28? You are assuming we upgrade the PK!!!
