I have one main priority: GET GERALD.
I want Gerald as Co-DC/DB coach. $550k year. Right now he makes 200k.
Having Gerald recruit for Jimmy – I literally cannot imagine it.
Position by position…
All I want to see here is an OC picked that is innovative and good. I think Jimmy will pick a guy who he feels would be hard for him to defend against. Then you have to let that guy pick his coaches.
That said, I’m going to put the offensive coaches in order from the one I would least expect to go, to the one I would most expect to go:
Junior (knows Jimmy, great recruiter, well regarded)
Huff (recruiting has been great, my understanding is that the offense itself has created a lot of issues for our OL)
Moobs (I think he’s probably gone, but I don’t know)
Pao (Same as Moobs, but more confident)
Bush (just not a real role for him)
I would be surprised if Junior or Huff are GONEZO, I would not be surprised about anyone else.
Coach K staying was obvious to me. I didn’t understand worries about that. Obviously he’d stay.
Ikaika is great at coaching and recruiting. I think that’s a good combo. Let’s keep him.
Everyone else is tricky.
I love Will personally and I doubt Jimmy would can him. I think he could get moved into a S coach kind of role. I don’t see him as a key piece, honestly.
Bobby Greggy – Jimmy has worked with him forever. I would be pretty surprised if he were shitcanned, but like all things, it’s probabilistic…
I think it’s about 40% likely he gets fired.
Ultimately – I think Jimmy’s going to need to replace himself on D and get a New OC and that’s another reason I feel like Bob may get another chance. Jimmy’s got a lot to do and not a lot of experience with putting a staff together.
