Frank Bush was hired as LB Coach. As long as he doesn't get near the X's and O's (this guy was worse than Cecil as a DC), this is a good hire. Lots of experience (even some as ST's Coach) and, you guessed it, has Oiler connections.
Hmm, interesting. By aggressive do you mean, like, gambling-wise for INTs, or just play tougher, or be Cortland Finnegan aggressive?
While Cecil was DB Coach, we kinda had a template for DB's. Finnegan was the prototype (although Finny's hot head is his own doing, lol). But yeah, be physical with your WR, be a sure tackler, and don't back down from anyone.
But we ran a base Cover 2, which that was ideal for, and I'm not sure how much zone ya'll run. He may approach your players differently because of the scheme.
Dave McGinnis is gonna stay on as Assistant HC! Yay!
I'm also assuming Marcus Robertson is going to be staying. I believe he played under Jerry Gray before, so that may be why (not 100% sure on that). But hopefully Gray puts his imprint on the DB's to make up for what Robertson may lack.
We got a new RB Coach the other day - Jim Skipper!!! He was on the Panthers with John Fox and coached Stephen Davis, DeAngelo Williams, and Jonathan Stewart, but was let go in the coaching regime change. It'll be nice to have an actual RB Coach this year, instead of a QB Coach subbing in. :) Linky dink!
