As I expected, due to too many people expecting one of the two. BB never hires who people expect, I personally think if the coach comes from the NFL it will be another coach Anderson type guy. A guy who is an assistant to the position coach.
Hope he makes a good hire, and pretty soon because I’m curious!
I’m not sure why anybody thought we could get Montgomery unless the Packers fired him. The Hogs are only offering a DL Asst coach or a perhaps a co-DC position. 2 years ago Jerry turned down the co-DC job at Oklahoma and headed to the Packers. I figured when he met with CBB, that much of that meeting was discussing the installation process for a 3-4. Then, perhaps asking if he had any suggestions as to who would be a good hire for the installation if (wink wink) Jerry wasn’t interested.
We have 2 vacant positions and possibly a 3rd with the 10th new coach. I still expect him to hire an experienced coach in the 3-4 system in some capacity, a DB coach for either the safeties or corners who’s a great recruiter. I think Paul will keep the other with his DC position. I could be wrong, but I don’t think he’s had a DC who also coaches the entire defensive backfield. Hopefully, he can then still hire a new 10th assistant who is a great recruiter and a special team wizard.
