Good we passed on him as HC. CGC is the man.
Fixed that for you.
Absolutely. We want our recruits to know that what they learn here, is what is being practiced at the next level. He's got family in Ga. I think. Rumors suggest he may take a job.
You think he would do that? No way. NFL coaches are constantly recycled. He will land as a QB coach with an NFL team in no time.
And Gailey was once fired as an OC then hired as a head coach by the Bills like a year later.
Shoot, Wiz may be coaching the Falcons next year.
Man, that would really suck for him. I hate seeing someone fall that hard.
Bruh. He passed on us.
He played for the Falcons. I could see him taking the job if it was offered to him.
And part of his demise might also be attributed to who he had for a TE Coach, Rip Scherer - Yes, THAT Rip Scherer, who almost made Patrick Nix look competent.
No way he'd do as poorly as Dan Quinn the past few seasons.
I think it may have been both. I think TStan knew he couldn't afford to make an unpopular hire because the on-field results would suck for a while. I think Whisenhunt also wanted more money and a bigger salary pool for his staff than we were willing or able to provide.
You really think the fact he played for the Falcons has one thing to do with him accepting a job there? Kinda like his old high school team?
He just seems dull. No way he could connect with kids like our current staff. No way the recruiting is trending the same way. I’m happy with the direction we went.
I don't think Whiz was ever a serious consideration, and for good reasons. He had no experience with recruiting and knew nothing of the current landscape of HS coaches. A lot of the Old Guard wanted him because he is a Tech Man. But I think he was interviewed mostly out of respect for both him and The Old Guard who support the program. TStan hit one out of the park with the Collins hire.
I am off topic here, but the issues the Falcons have are not related for the most part to who they have hired as coaches, gm, trainers, consultants or any such personnel.
It goes back to the ultimate branding, philosophy, culture and goals of an organization.
The Falcons were founded as a play toy, to a certain extent are still operated as such.
No team owner in NFL history allowed his minor aged children to make draft picks such as the original owner did.
From day ond they never tried to create their own image or brand.
Until such time they will remain forever who they are now.
Exactly. If Tech had hired him, I would have gone full Greg Schiano and flown back to ATL to protest in the streets.
THIS piece of information opens my eyes to Whiz' ability, or inability, to discern. Pass.
