FIU Hires ex-Texas State HC as DC
FIU hires Everett Withers as its new Defensive Coordinator, Brent Guy (ex-DC) stepped down yesterday due to family reasons. Coach Withers will re-join Butch Davis on the FIU staff (previously worked as his DC at UNC). Go F I U!

RE: FIU Hires ex-Texas State HC as DC
While his head coaching record is not impressive, there is a difference between being a good head coach and being a good coordinator. He has a ton of experience at big-time programs and I think this is a good hire. The defense really struggled at times last year, particularly against the spread offense run. The defense last year was also very conservative. Withers had success when acting as the DC under Butch Davis at NC. Im looking forward to the change.

Well, that's the 3rd time I've been wrong this century.

Then he must have coached at Southern Miss at some point?
