Our special teams coach decides to test the market. Not that we have had tremendous seasons under him. Our DC I could understand - this guy is not getting re-inked unless the market is just wretched.
We recognize that we are likely taking a step back on the defense with the hiring of Will Clanton, but the talent pool is not terribly deep and we do not yet have the budget to bring in the best of everything. Lets see where this goes.
Excellent motivator, good at scouting and developing DL. Average at LB, average at gameplan, average scout of DB, but good at developing them. 525K is the request.
We find a slightly cheaper special teams coach to chase as well. Our first guy elects to work at Nebraska, but we get our 2nd choice in Donnie Knight.
