Yeah the temptation is to stay in house, just human nature, and i just think you need to fight that just a bit.

Replacing coaches may be a way of life, but replacing good ones ain't so easy ND. Look what happened when we got rid of Lewis and brought in Groh. Night and day. You listed the right qualities to look for though.

Well 60 if you have followed me over they years you'll know I have always advocated coaching. Called Lewis the possible problem with WRs long before his departure. I agree replacing them isn't easy but any HC worth his salt has to be able to identify coaching talent around the league and can't hesitate to hire the best guy; not his best buddy.
A long time ago as I was moving up the working ladder a guy told me that I should always be training my replacement. That way you always have people good enough to fall back on

Gotcha ND. Was there an assistant to Groh? I think the guy really has talent. I remember MD always bitching about our wrs coaching as far back as I can remember too. I also remember Aggied spent the first week of camp working on his stance!! That's detail man.

Frankly, up until this year our WR Corp always lacked 1 thing or another , every year Back to AR.

This year was an improvement, in route running , hand catching, blocking and especially I think in learning how to get off the lines better. Also the talent level has improved over all.

Now we just have to keep it going.
