JOB #1 though is for him to meet with the 6 defensive commits who have yet to sign and their families. We need all of them to sign.

Hopefully we snag a could ECU decommits. Or players that he knows can fit in our/his new system.

What about defensive coaches? Will he be pulling any from his old staff at ECU?

Wonder what we paid him? Bargain price or a little bit more?

I believe i read that Brian Scott is taking over coaching the OL so we are doing away with that position. I would assume much of that will be allocated to the new DC with some going to Scott for taking in additional responsibility.

Because we have had a whopping 1 winning season in the last 4!!!!

Ok correction. Perhaps it is just me that feels like a winner when wearing the blue and silver.

RE: NEW Defensive Coordinator
I think the key here is that we are getting someone from a better conference and from an overlapping recruiting area.
Recruiting is more than half the battle. And the hope here is we get a guy that likely has plenty of contacts just a car ride away.
Bringing in a DC from an FCS program may not have that level of contacts. Bringing in a positions coach from an FBS program may have contacts but not the DC experience.

This seems like a good hire, on paper.

I'm going to take a wait and see with this hire to sink in. We all know the state of the program right now and anyone worth hiring is going to avoid the job due to uncertainty with Wilder's future here.

If we're going off of previous jobs for both Nagy and Blackwell. Nagy had the better defense before coming to ODU with both coaches coming from terrible programs.

Does anyone remember when Jacksonville St almost beat #6 Auburn? Blackwell was the defensive coordinator. I like this hire.

Brandon Hall got the credit for that defense, accord to the school's bio.

This is pretty shortsighted. Nagy took over a much better defense than Blackwell did. Nagy took over a good mid major defense at Western Michigan (mid 50s year before) and put together 3 defenses around 80ish. Blackwell took over the worst defense in the country and brought it to the low 80s.

No issue with a wait and see approach, but Blackwell does have some experience running good defenses at both USF and in FCS.

They did pretty well vs. us last year. 35 points, but 1 of the drives started on their 5 yard line. Another their 39 and another their 49. Overall, we only had 18 first downs and 271 total yards on 57 plays. One of our worst performances, offensively, of the year.

Nagy is the worst coach I have ever seen. Defense was absolute trash. He gets zero credit or benefit of doubt.

What defensive schemes does he run? I would like to see us try a 3-4. I think fast athletic LBs are what you need in C-USA. I don't like 3 safeties and 2 LBs.

I agree with ya but kinda feel we're on the same train with the same exit plan.

He ran the same 4-2-5 last year. But, Blackwell is flexible scheme wise...he often lines up the DEs in the wide 9 technique. They do a lot of shifting and blitzing.

Normally you recruit for 3-4

1. Linebackers have to be very versatile.
In 4-3 they mostly cover running backs out of the backfield, or drop back into zone coverage, and are the second line of defense vs the run. A 3-4 linebacker is a primary part of run defense, and most all of the pass rush, but also must be able to play in pass coverage at times.

2. The nose guard is a very specific position and is one of the most, if not THE most physical position on the team. Often a nose guard (nose tackle) has to play the center AND the two guards at the same time. He must be big, strong, athletic and quick.

3. The other two down linemen are called defensive ends, but are usually larger and more like tackles. They must be quick and strong, more suited to run defense than pass rush.

Unless we get some JUCOs or recruits that are specific to the 3-4, we will have to hold off on that until we can.

Love it.

ECU takes JMU's coaches, and we take ECU's coaches.

Nice.
