Anyway time for some Bulldog football blogging!
I know its a bit late but Jeff Grady and Jim McElwain will fill the open tight end and offensive coordinator positions, respetively. Grady is a no-brainer and a freakin good hire! Mark it down, he will be one of the hottest young coaches in the next few years. McElwain is not a your typical run of the mill NFL assistant Pat Hill pulls out of his ass to fill the OC spot every few years.
McElwain is a college coach, his one year coaching QB's in Oakland hardly makes him an NFL "guy".
McElwain, however, has not been an offensive coordinator since his days at Montana State. But he was the assistant head coach at Michigan State under John L. Smith for three years and coached the receivers and special teams. He held the same position under Smith at Lousiville, as well. He should fit in well and hopefully will be the guy to get Tom Brandstater over the hump.
Spring ball is just over a month away and I can't wait!
If the returning lettermen have a good spring, then the potential for a good 2007 is there. None of the 2007 recruits will be in for spring, meaning they will only make the depth chart better come fall. Check out BarkBoard.com for spring position breakdowns in the coming weeks.
