So our grand plan after firing Gus is to basically hire the South Carolina coaching staff. Great job guys.

You sound like them. Three coaches? Hardly the USC staff. It’s not like Rocker is some stranger out of left field.

There’s some good coaches, but they were in a terrible situation under Boom.

Interested to see how it plays out.

What was the terrible situation? Muschamp was a horrible manager? Can't get 5-stars to South Carolina? What?

TIFWIW The Bunker has Aaron Moorehead as a name to watch for WR coach. Was Mason's WR coach at Vandy from 2018-19. Nothing but a rumor at this point, but the post said auburn talked to him recently.

Geez. Would it hurt Harsin to hire someone we can get excited about? I’m fine with hiring Mason, but we don’t need anyone else from Vandy.

Moorehead wouldn't be a bad hire.

GA at Stanford under Harbaugh and Shaw.

WR coach for Frank Beamer at Va Tech and Sumlin at A&M, coached and recruited a few pros.

Coached under Mason at Vandy.

Spent the past season as the Eagles WR coach.

He's the current Eagles WR coach. He coached at A&M as well. Here's an article about Christian Kirk talking about him. NBC Sports

quote:

Listen.
 
That’s Christian Kirk’s message to the Eagles’ wide receivers. Listen to your new wide receivers coach, Aaron Moorehead. 

That’s what Kirk did, and he’s now one of the most promising young wideouts in the NFL.
 
“He’ll do great with the Eagles,” Kirk said. “People might think all of a sudden a good coach goes to Philly and all their wide receivers are automatically going to be world-class receivers and go for 1,000 yards. But that’s not going to just happen. But if they buy in and listen to him and work hard at their craft, they’re going to get better. If they buy in, I know he’s going to get the most out of them.”




quote:

Moorehead, 39, spent 2003 through 2007 playing for the Colts, and he comes to the Eagles from Vanderbilt, where he spent the last two years. But it was at Texas A&M that he coached Kirk, who caught 234 passes for 2,856 yards and 26 TDs for the Aggies from 2015 through 2017.
 
Kirk had the 5th-most catches, 8th-most yards and 7th-most TDs in the BCS during that three-year span, and the Cards drafted him in the second round in 2018. In two years in Arizona, he has 111 catches, 1,299 yards and six TDs.
 
“I was recruited to A&M by the previous wide receivers coach, David Beaty, but he left (to become head coach at Kansas) a week after I got to campus,” Kirk said. “They hired Coach Moorehead, and his first day in the building we spent a lot of time together and it was clear right from Day 1 he understood where I wanted to go and what I wanted to accomplish, and he knew how to get me there.”
 
It was the start of a very productive relationship that got both of them to the NFL.
 
Kirk is one of three NFL receivers that played for Moorehead at A&M. 


quote:

Josh Reynolds, who played two years under Moorehead, was the Rams’ 4th-round pick in 2017 and has 61 catches and 7 TDs, and Damion Ratley was the Browns’ 6th-round pick in 2018 and has 25 catches in two seasons.
 
“He’s got a great offensive mind,” Kirk said. “He knows the game inside and out. He played the position in the NFL. When you get to college, you have know idea what it takes to have success and hopefully get to the next level. Now here’s a coach who played five years with Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, and has the ability to share what he learned from those guys as far as releases, running routes, just every detail of playing the position. If you haven’t played the position at the highest level, there’s always going to be those questions – ‘Well, you haven’t experienced it.’ With coach Moorehead, he’d been through all of it. Played with Hall of Famers, played in a Super Bowl.”
 
Moorehead is the first Eagles WR coach that played in the league since Greg Lewis, who was his teammate under Ron Turner at Illinois.


quote:

“He’s a guy who’s been around great players, been on great teams,” Kirk said. “He knew exactly what I needed to become a better player. He worked me harder than anybody ever has, but that’s what I needed. He knows what everybody in the room needs, and he’s never going to take anything less than maximum effort.”

re: Rumored/Hired Assistant Coaches (On-field staff done)
So the UCF WR coach emerges as a top candidate (reportedly) for our WR vacancy. Then he cleans out his office and, as far as UCF fans know, disappears. Insiders claim Auburn hasn't spoken with him yet, and now more names are emerging for the WR position. Am I the only one both amused and a little concerned by this? Has anyone had contact with this guy recently?

re: Rumored/Hired Assistant Coaches (On-field staff done)
Would people feel better about these same hires if these same coaches hadn't been at South Carolina when we got them, if Bobo had just been let go aa Colorado State as HC for example?

The Boise State guys might be unknown names but they've been successful there and beat some big teams because they coached up less talented players and outcoached "better" coaches. We haven't coached up or out coached anyone in 8 plus years.

With higher end talent, and this group of coaches rubbing off on each other, who knows what can happen? That's more refreshing than knowing exactly what we would get IMO. Harsin and Greene have accomplished one thing we needed badly already, got the boosters and good old boy bull shite out of the decision making. For that I hope they are wildly successful and the bull shite stays out.

Remember Saban and Meyer had zero SEC experience but high winning %'s before coming to the SEC and made names for themselves and their assistants. Saban still does it regularly with guys who have zero SEC experience as coordinators. I'm not saying that will happen again, but again who knows. I will take that for now

re: Rumored/Hired Assistant Coaches (On-field staff done)
Look at some of the guys we have on NFL rosters who were later picks or undrafted and what they are doing, now imagine if they'd been coached up. Stidham came to Auburn a possible 1st round pick and left a 6th rounder. These guys won't let that happen.

I was with you until you said this. Stidham still looks bad in the NFL.

Muschamp is a shitty head coach who meddled in his teams offenses. He went 28-21 at Florida and 28-30 at USCe. It would suck to be an OC with him as a HC.

re: Rumored/Hired Assistant Coaches (On-field staff done)
Yes but he could have looked good enough if coached up to get taken early and be a bust, 2 years of coaching himself at Auburn hasn't helped him there either along with being down a complete offseason as a starter with COVID. No denying his potential, go look at what people were saying about him when he got there and even before his last season at Auburn.

What about Peyton Barber, Brandon King, Jonathan Jones, Carlton Davis, or Darius Slayton?

I’m not disagreeing that players have not been coached up under Gus. I’m just saying Stidham is a bad example of what players are now doing in the NFL.

re: Rumored/Hired Assistant Coaches (On-field staff done)
I know, my point is Gus wasted 2 years of a possible NFL level QB sitting on his hand and farting, would you agree?

My point is people would be pissed if our staff were all Boise State or all retread SEC guys. We got a mix, and they've all had successes before. What hires would have made these people happy? Urban Meyer with Briles or Hugh Freeze as OC and Veneables as DC?
