    don't forget, you simply match the salary and that $875 in Seattle has $830k in buying power, and $983k in Oklahoma. There's a nice $150k bonus even before you raise his salary. Could throw him $900k on a salary and it's like getting bumped $200k from his last salary.

    This is all before mentioning you are now coaching at a blue blood compared to the Pac-12 where football is becoming an afterthought.

    I agree. Their depression levels in the PNW are unreal. Couldn't imagine putting myself through 9 months of darkness every year.

    Sounds like a no go on Odom, per FootballScoop. There have been some other names coming up though so I don't know what level of target he was.

    It now sounds like he was the first offer made. So swing and a miss. Not sure how big a miss is, though. His track record at LB isn't very long. Grinch seems to like him, though.

    The downside of hiring young coaches is they usually know less people.

    well joke is on us, we may be hiring the #Virginia Tech Hokies CB coach who sucks dick, but oh guess what?! He "shockingly" coached DBs at Texas Tech from 06-10.

    Apparently VT fans are begging us to take him...

    Fun fact - his CBs had LESS INTs than ours did last year (3 between all of his CBs and Motley/Norwood had 4).

    I don’t know specifics but DeAngelo Hall and Brandon Floweres seemed to really question some techniques and style of DB play in some podcasts they did early in the year. Granted they don’t know the guy and we’re used to how they were coached.

    Without a doubt it’s not a splash hire.

    they are working on Manning or Gray for CB coach. Unlikely to get Gray with only 1 position, but Manning would be another coup. Ace recruiter is the word, and Grinch has some big time CBs in 2020 already looking at his hire in Norman

    RUFFIN IS DEAD WEIGHT, SABAN WOULD NEVER KEEP HIM

    BUT MANNING IS A LINEBACKER COACH, HIS RESUME IS SHIT

    ODOM HAS ONLY COACHED FOR 2 YEARS?!?

    IS IT TOO LATE FOR LINCOLN TO RECONSIDER HIS DC HIRE?!? (yes, someone actually wrote that)

    I’m a little concerned about Ruffin and recruiting but he’ll be at OLB, which probably has the most young talent of any position group on the defense. I’d rather him be there than ILB or DTs, both of which are the biggest needs in 2020. Lincoln is never going to fire him so if he wants to continue coaching, OLBs is probably the ideal position spot for him to be at
