Tennessee poaches OC Jim Chaney away from Georgia.

Dave Warner remains MSUs OC
Not sure how good a hire that is for Tennessee. 
If Kirby Smart plays his cards right he can make a massive upgrade at that spot.

Disagree, I think he's perfect for a team with a talent advantage.  Like we were discussing in the thread about how maybe having Tua wasn't best for Alabama, because they went away from how they are built, Chaney can stay within the framework that works, but has more wrinkles.  HobesHon, Harbaugh should hire him, I think he'd do great in Ann Arbor.

His career trajectory is the exact opposite of falling up.

Started in the NFL, then worked his way down to a G5. 

Had his career instead unfolded in reverse, then he would have been continuously falling up.

NY Jets are hiring Adam Gase to be their next head coach. 

Pretty solid hire imo. Not completely sold on Darnold yet, but he’s a HELL of a lot better piece to work with than Ryan Tannehill’s trash ass and I believe the Jets have a crap load of cap space to go sign some free agents.

Former Husker quarterback Zac Taylor is reportedly the Cincinnati Bengals’ choice as the team’s next head coach.

Northern Illinois, the Huskers’ third 2019 opponent, is looking for a new head coach as Rod Carey takes the job at Temple.

what thread is that? cause it's wrong, whoever suggested that. we didn't do much different from what we've been doing, we were just amazingly more effective in doing it.
also, haven't checked this thread in awhile, bama has had quite a few coaches jumping to better spots.
oc coach locksley to maryland hc
wr coach gattis is oc at mich.
qb coach enos is oc at miami.
ol coach keys is ol/assistant hc at ga tech (his alma mater)
might be more movement coming.
good for them all, but man this is getting old. i'll be honest, until about halfway through the season i'm not sure i knew all of our coaches names.

Interesting thread!

It's a few days old now, but Oklahoma hired Buckeye Co-DC Alex Grinch as DC.

Sooner fans are mostly very impressed, although there have been grumblings that the Buckeye defense in '18 wasn't stellar.  The response to that from the cheering section has been that Schiano ran the defense.

A lot of Sooner fans believe that if we had had even a mediocre defense the last two years we'd have won national championships #8 and 9.  Two once-in-a-generation QBs in a row, and what we have to show for it is four conference championships and three semifinal losses in the CFP.  Four consecutive conference championships is no small thing, but with offenses led by Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray, there seemed to be potential for much more than that.

I think Grinch will do fine.  The defensive talent isn't Bama- or Clemson-esque, but it's good enough to be near the top in the Big 12, instead of #8, 9, or 10 in just about every category.  And it's getting better.  If Grinch is as good at OU as he was at Wazou, he'll do fine and so will we.

Sark to Alabama as OC? Damn. Alabama had a lights out offensive staff and that offense broke every record under the sun- and now they go from that to a re-tread in Sark? Really? Weak ass hire. Probably going to see the same thing happen at Bama as what happened in Atlanta. Falcons go to the Super Bowl and have a record setting offense- then Kyle Shannan leaves and Sark comes in and Atlanta's record breaking offense falls off a cliff. Deja vu?

Not all college coaches succeed in the NFL and vice-versa. Saban stunk it up in the NFL. Spurrier too. Who knows what Sark could have done at USC had he not been a drunk. If he's past that, he might be good.

I don't know man. Not a believer in Sark. At all. Never thought he was all that. He's all hype. Literally. When he was at USC he was an errand boy. That was Norm Chow's explosive offense. What'd he do at Washington? Nothing. What'd he do at USC? Nothing. He basically just got fired from the Atlanta Falcons and the fans were happy as hell to see him go.
To me he's a dinosaur, coattail riding past his prime never was. Sort of like a Pep Hamilton, but probably got bigger opportunities to prove just how mediocre he is because he's white.

On the surface, it's a head-scratcher (surely the money the Cardinals would be paying him as an OC is significantly more than for the same position at Alabama).  But it might not have been a bad move on his part, since there's more stability in the college ranks for assistant coaches than in the NFL.  At Alabama, he's not getting paid to think.  He's getting paid to pay lip service to Nick Saban.  And that seems to be something he's more than comfortable with.
