One thread is devoted to dramatics so I want to discuss replacing Craig. I don't think we hire a Qbs coach. I think we hire a CBs coach so Pruitt is more free to work towards insuring our 11 man D works as a unit. We need someone at DB who recruits So Florida extremely well. Jmo. What's yours?
My take is you are a giant dork
If we hire a QB coach, I wouldn't mind trying one of our own legends.
Weinke, Ward, or Kanell.

Your ability to just start a new profile and keep posting is embarassing for the site moderators that ban you and try to act like they try.
Dude all you ever bring to these message boards is negativity! I def. wouldnt hate that FSUX2. Sounds Cliche but i really believe Jimbo knows what he is doin as far as making the best possibble hires!
I would love it if Jimbo coached the QB's and hired an OC. That would free him up to focus on the entire team.

Yea, sounds like a plan. Let's do it!!!
i wonder why Coley hasn't bolted yet...? He will clearly never be given a chance here as an OC. I don't know how good he is but he certainly is not coordinating our offense.
Love it, but 5 year plan aside, I doubt he gives up playcalling control for a long time.
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
jimbo has a 5 year plan right.? maybe he is showing coley how he wants the offense ran then he is gonna pass it to him.... jmo
How bout JImbo coach the QB's, Coley the real OC, then hire a TE coach that also coaches Special Teams, or Sunseri can do Specials as well as DE's?
I've owned my own business for 16 years and at times have been ultra controlling and tried to do too much because no one is more invested than me. But at some point, you realize there aren't enough hours in a day and you need to delegate. And then it comes down to putting people in a position to succeed by playing to their strength's. Jimbo will learn that. Right now it's his first shiny new car and he doesn't want anyone to drive it.
A lot of Noles want that OC hired but I think its a pipe dream. Jimbo made it clear he will be calling plays here.
I would be fine with bringing in Weinke. I think he was in line for the job at USF ?
We need another ace recruiter though, dunno who or what is out there as far as ace recruiter QB coaches.
FSU -->----->> The Unconquered Uprising
Jimbo is and always will be the qb coach. Hiring another qb coach is a waste of a spot. Craig was a recruiter and not coach. So we won't be replacing anything on the x's and o's end of things.
We have Pruitt so we don't need anyone else to recruit Bama. There is not enough talent in Bama to warrant 2 coaches focusing on the area. Besides, if we can get what Bama is getting out of j'ville we would be ahead of the game anyway.
If we want a coach I think we should get a special teams' coach. If we want a recruiter then it doesn't matter where you put him.
cb coach is a possibility as well. However, Pruitt should be able to coach both safeties and corners.
Jimbo coaches qb's now. Craig was qb's coach because he needed a title.
Getting an oc or turning things over to Coley would be great. I have heard some rumblings this may actually happen. We'll see.
I know it's cliche to suggest Alabama staff members, but Mike Groh is kind of an interesting target to me.
The guy that qb'ed at UVA?
Careful with asking that question because we may get an answer we don't want to hear.
I would also love what canolee proposes, but I agree with TNole here. Craig needed a title. He was basically here to recruit.
Getting Pruitt and Sunseri helps lessen the blow because they are both Alabama guys.
I think we need to hire a true DB coach. That was Pruitt's area last year, but he hasn't historically been a DB coach.
If coley was going to call plays next year would Jimbo actually announce that now and make a big deal out of it or would he just quietly make the change and announce something a few days before our first game? Doesn't seem to me like allowing our current oc to actually do what he should be doing anyways would require an announcement 9 months before our next game.
Yep. Son of a coach, was an OC at UVA for a couple of years, has worked for Charlie Strong and Nick Saban since. Now coaching WR's at Bama.
I dont buy into the "Well, if he coaches at Alabama, then he's heads and shoulders above everyone else" mantra, but his career path is interesting.
I suspect there would never be an announcement. If i was Jimbo I would never address it in any interview or press conference either.
(1) too many sticky follow up questions to deal with such as : Why did it take 4 years for you to gain the confidence in Coley to let him call plays,etc.
(2) When did you realize it was a mistake for you to continue to call plays
(3) i could keep going: i could come up with about 15 questions in the vein.
(2) it is also demeaning to Coley to make an announcement like this: a lot of the country eg Matt Millen, think coley calls the plays because he is the oc.
Damn I knew I had said something about this a few weeks ago. Objectively speaking, I don't blame Coley for leaving one bit. Positive career move for him.
