Good question, maybe he was just temporary so that he could hit the road recruiting?
I think everything will still go through Harbaugh. I think the more interesting question is they just hired a guy whose coaching history is almost entirely spread tempo offense, so does this mean UM is fully invested in going that direction?
Shea looked a lot more comfortable in the spread. Have to build that in this year. Year 1 without urban and fields will only get better. Have to think this could be harbaughs best shot at beating Ohio state and finishing in the top 2 of the division for the first time. Building an offense your QB is most comfortable with makes sense.
Eddie "The Bag Man" Gran to UGA?
They finished second in the division and were favored in a game at OSU last year.
Good for gran
We also have 3 stud wrs that have been poorly used
We finished 8-1 in the conference this year, which was 2nd.
I'm hoping this is a sign that Harbaugh is turning the same corner that Saban turned a few years ago, Time of Possession and 15 play drives are not what win you big games anymore.
Bizarre to give him playcalling responsibility for the first time but maybe that’s what Michigan needs.
This move sets up Gattis to take over a loaded Maryland team in 3 years.
Play calling is pretty nebulous under Harbaugh. Arguably 4 people called plays this year and would be said to have play calling responsibility.
looks like bc co dc Anthony Campanile will get one of the open d spots at Michigan
All of this came from one guy in Kentucky media? I’m not buying this 2 hour Gran ordeal at all.
Not sure why, but guy is staying
I’m not doubting that he’s staying at Kentucky. I’m doubting if he was actually offered the OC job at Georgia. Seems like he would have mulled over it a bit longer at a minimum. If he wants to be a HC, taking the UGA job seems wise.
yea he wasnt offered, it was a raise play.
Agreed. Only other option is Stoops has told him I am going to try to get outta here while I am hot and you are next in line.
South Carolina defensive line coach Lance Thompson is not expected to return to the Gamecocks next season, a source told The State on Thursday.
Thompson “will not be kept,” ABC of Columbia reported on Thursday. He has coached South Carolina’s defensive line since head coach Will Muschamp was hired prior to the 2016 season. He was one of Muschamp’s first hires, coming with the head coach from Auburn.
South Carolina had already added Thomas Brown this offseason. Brown will coach running backs in 2019 and took assistant coach Pat Washington’s position on the staff.
When Brown’s hiring became official Wednesday, athletics director Ray Tanner indicated that more football staff changes could be coming. It’s not clear when the Gamecocks will officially address Thompson’s status.
“Believe Will already has his replacement lined up,” FootballScoop tweeted Thursday.
Thompson has had a long career in the Southeast, coaching at Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, LSU and UCF, often for Nick Saban.
He is listed by 247Sports as a key recruiter for five-star defensive end Zacch Pickens, plus four-star Joseph Anderson. At past spots, he played roles in recruiting the likes of Julio Jones, Da’Shawn Hand and Jonathan Allen to Alabama.
Thompson came to USC as the defensive line coach, but his role was switched to tackles coach before this season. Mike Peterson worked with the outside linebackers, Bucks and defensive ends.
Whoever gets the job will inherit a stocked cupboard of blue chippers, which includes Pickens, Anderson, Josh Belk, Rick Sandidge, Javon Kinlaw and Kingsley Enagbare.
Wait I thought it was UofSC
It’s a weird hire. Gattis was passed over by both Franklin and Saban to be a playcaller. I’ll be interested to see if that was a mistake in the long run. The schematic differences between his prior experience and Jim’s philosophy are also interesting. Is a good recruiter and WR coach, though.
I think after our performances in the last 2 games, plus against OSU in general, Jim is willing to alter his philosophy.
Agreed. I'm curious to see how it works out. Definitely a risk, but I guess you can argue it was just as risky to keep the status quo on offense. Next year is a huge year for Harbaugh, and he's going into it with a first-time play caller who almost certainly is going to run an offense Harbaugh has resisted his entire career. The upside is pretty big, but the risk is, too.
Bama had Dan Enos who did a terrific job, that makes sense. Penn State is a different story.
It's pretty from people like Feldman who are talking about this being some amazing hire. He can recruit, he can definitely coach WRs, who knows if he can call plays.
Like Feldman but he loves to pimp guys that give him access, him and Sumlin as a prime example
Feldman sucks off Franklin because he gives him access to the program he doesn’t give any other reporter.
You think the offensive scheme/philosophy is changing? Is Pep Hamilton leaving?
Gattis has pretty much only coached spread offenses and has been named the play caller, so I would guess we'll see a significant change in some fashion. Not sure if Hamilton is staying or going at this point.
Harbaugh's passive-aggressive management style is to hire your replacement and assume you'll get the message. It's also his approach to recruiting and marriage.
Big hire for Charlie Strong, he's got a year or two left to turn things around
Yeah, Feldman is unbearable with guys he likes. Mario Cristobal, Kevin Sumlin, Bob Stitt, Leach, etc.
I think Gattis is at Michigan first and foremost to recruit his ass off. I'm pretty sceptical that Harbaugh would change his entire offensive philosophy for a unproven OC calling plays for the first time in his career.
RichRod also in this group
Andy Ludwig back to Utah to be announced tomorrow
Is Gattis a better hire than Nuss was? That is the question.
If he’s not better than Doug Nussmeier then may god have mercy on your souls.
Can’t be any worse. He has just never called plays before.
Initially the big rumors were Bo Davis or Travis Jones but the new scoop this morning was that they are gunning for Marion Hobby.
Feel like bo Davis gets brought up by every team every time they need a DL coach and he never ends up getting the job
I could believe it though because Will Muschamp seems to only like to hire people he's worked with before.
He has a show cause in effect until April
Feel as if team mods would have done this research but then again given the intelligence of our mods...
It's from Tony Morrell but he said the way the show-cause is written that it only prohibits him from participating in off-campus recruiting activities until April but he could still be hired.
Isn’t that how most of them are? I mean Bruce Pearl’s was still in effect when Auburn hired him I believe.
Wouldn't USC still have to show cause for hiring him though?
Your honor, our cause is that we'd really like to do it.
Yeah I like Davis and wish we would hire him.
Been rumors that we might be cutting ties with Kool and bringing Bo back too. Who knows. I feel like there's a possibility we might have 7-8 new coaches next year.
Is Saban pushing Enos out?
That seems hard to believe
That's a rumor out there. IMO, would be stupid if true.
On the other hand, writer on BOL says Enos has been deeply involved in picking an oline coach, so the whole thing may be a bad rumor. Who knows?
