Coaching DL and we are going to hire a new OLB coach .. Couple of guys i would like to see considered would be Marcus Freeman ( yeah that marcus freeman) currently at purdue and lavar woods at Iowa ..Both young energetic coaches not sure how they recruit but still need some youth on this staff
It looks like Mattison will coach all of the DEs now (he coached the WDEs last season) and Hoke will coach all of the DTs (he coached the 1-techs last season). Whoever the hire is, he must be...
A. An African American
B. A great recruiter
11 National Titles | 42 Conference Titles | 3 Heisman Winners | 78 All-Americans | 37 College Hall of Fame Members
I dont follow
Just glad it didn't say "JLS"
B>>>>A. Not sure why he must be an African American. As long as he is a good coach and can recruit then I am cool with it
Coach: Beer Norm?
Norm: Well I am going to need something to kill time before my second beer.
Not really sure why the African American angle is slotted in there, at all.
Personally i think he should be Asian American
I'd take the job but I want the team to do well.
Pick the best coach regardless of race, background, etc. This is not Obama politics.

Sweet dig at the Pres bro...
If you dont think having an African American presence on the staff is important, then you are wrong. Dead wrong. You have to have guys that can relate to players.
And if we only have 1 African American, and an older one at that, kids will notice. And other staffs will point it out. Trust me.
The name that should be on the list is Roy Manning. Young, charismatic, hungry, Michigan Man, high character, and great connections in state. He would lock down Saginaw and Cass.
This has been pointed out plenty of times, but I think it's the best option, they need to find a guy who is a killer recruiter. That's way harder to find than an X's and O's guy, and way more valuable since they need to replace a great recruiter.
Ed Wang is probably available.
It definitely matters in college football
Why does it have to be a he?
If you want recruits to relate...we need a Ginger
Are you saying we should recruit kids with no soul?
You hire the best person for the job. I can only hope Hoke and his staff aren't making decisions based on race. That is for liberals.
Liberal politics has seeped into the blood of this country. Sad ... sad times. On another note ...

I think he should be Black. For reasons some of you will never comprehend. And the Obama statement..... U sound like some groups down here in Alabama.
I don't think Marcus would leave Purdue right now, he just went there from KSU with an OSU coach, and only has one year of coaching under his belt. UM would probably be a bit too much of a job for him right now.

Leave politics out of this, only warning guys.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Freeman does seem like a solid young coaching candidate. He was a solid college player, too. Maybe you guys will pick him up once Fickell leaves for the MAC or something...
First off....Obama is half white. Anyone who plays the race card because of Obama being "black" is being prejudice to his white ancestry, and being white myself, I take offense to that.
