Hopefully he doesn't coach his DBs to play 10 yds off the ball on a 3rd and 6.

RE: NEW Defensive Coordinator
Seems like a lot of good experience. A little concerned that he went from Pitt and Clemson to Fordham and Jacksonville state?

RE: NEW Defensive Coordinator
Agreed. Hes not some GA from Utah. Should maybe be a little bit of an upgrade. From the wtkr article:

Quote:As the defensive leader of the Pirates, Blackwell oversaw a unit that allowed 439.8 yards/game in 2018 – ranking 101st of 130 teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). Old Dominion ranked 118th in FBS (471.4 yards/game) in total defense this season.

Which is down from 541.7 yds per game the season before when he was not DC.

RE: NEW Defensive Coordinator
So, USF had the 32nd best defense in 2009 and Leavit left and he had to move on. Looks like solid jobs at Fordham and Jacksonville State.

ECU had the worst defense by far in college football in 2017 and improved to number 82 in 2018. That seems like a solid job. Coaches in NC love the guy, which may help recruiting.

It will be a bit of a change because we will have a more aggressive defense as he's known for trying exotic blitzes. Seems like a pretty good hire to me. Probably better than I would have expected.

They have no choice but to win, every coach is fighting for their job.

Bowl game or everyone is gone.

ECU didnt play Maine last year so im not sure what you are getting at

Sam is referencing what Maine did to JaxSt in this year's playoffs, a year after he left. Ridiculous.

He coached at ECU last year, not Jacksonville State.

RE: NEW Defensive Coordinator
On the surface this looks like a much better hire than most people on this board had feared. Hopefully there will be a decent rise in the level of the Monarchs defensive play next season.

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.
