What about Chris for QB coach.
thinking the same thing...
Knows the game, I think he would recruit well and has the NFL/Heisman pedigree to get kid's attention.
I'll take more proven and preferably black.
im ok w the first part but bigtime "wft" on the second...
What the hell does a coach's skin color have to do with how well he prepares his players for success in college and beyond?

I had this same discussion with two knucklehead posters when A&M were searching for their head coach. They gave reasons why they would not hire a black coach and I let them have it saying Texas A&M fans don't give a damn about their coach's skin color but wins and losses. Well, a week later they hired Sumlin and there is not a cross being burned in anyone's front yard.
People need to quit with this nonsense about someone's skin color.
Doesn't he run a football school-type-thing in Bradenton? How is that not experience?
Also worked with Cam Newton.
No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton cans getting tutored by a former Panthers quarterback who had his fair share of college success.
90 % of the clientele are black and many low income. It has to help.
I prefer much more experience than skin color.
"I never knew I had a foot until I noticed it was on your neck"
90% of college QBs are black? Since when?
I like the idea . . . of considering Weinke. Not hiring a man because he's black.

If I had two equal guys at the position, I would take the black guy. Just a business decision. This is business.
Incredibly narrow-minded view of the world.
Your business decisions include:
Pagers--the future is here.
Investing--used scratch off lottery tickets.
Dippin' Dots: it's the ice cream of the future, for the last 25 years.
I would love Weinke as a QBs coach. I don't remember Craig being the most proven coach before we hired him, I thought he was looked at as more of a recruiter. After seeing what Cam Newton did his rookie year in the NFL after training with Weinke during the lockout, I'd like to give him a look. You know he will be loyal and isn't going anywhere for awhile. I would think he would be a great recruiter given all his connects in Florida and the fact that he was a former Heisman....for us nonetheless. He can emphasize education with the parents because he's gone the route of going pro and needing to have an education to fall back on. I think he would be awesome.
Then again I think it would be awesome if Deion was our DBs coach just so we can snag every damn elite DB in-state since we've seem to not been able to do that lately. Not sure how much coaching experience he's got, I know he's got some and I know he worked with Hester which isn't very reassuring...but it would mainly be Pruitt's unit and I Deion could learn from it. Deion could be to Pruitt as Craig was to Jimbo....
Now obviously neither of those will happen but I think it would be interesting. Weinke is definitely the better option.
So we need to hire a homeless black guy?
It worked for Happy.
Always thought the Spanish version was better.
I say hire 'em both. They would KILL on the recruiting trail. Regarding the "coaching thing" they have enough knowledge and personality to pull it off.
Craig was hired because he was an ACE recruiter, especially in the state of Alabama. We are all aware that Jimbo coaches the QB's and while Craig facilitated smooth communication, his main job was to r-e-c-r-u-i-t. Why would we take someone with little to no recruiting experience to replace an ace recruiter? And no, having a heisman does not necessarily equate to being a good recruiter.
I love the idea of having some of the ol' Noles back on the team, but this would not be the smartest hire IMO.
There are legit reasons to want black coaches, but it's a dangerous subject to talk about, as shown here.
