I’m sure somebody told you this but it sounds like you talked to somebody who doesn’t like Hammock and is just talking nonsense.

I’m saying he has no connections. That’s a big part of many professions, like coaching, so Hammock is flying blind. Taking applications is basically what he does. No one of any value is reaching out with a valid, “hey take a look at my guy…”

So for everyone asking for Hammock to make changes, who, and how. He is on his own basically. Yes he could find someone, but the same type of staff he already has.

Life is about the connections you make, much of the time, and hammock is short there.

I would not be in total shock of the changes are minimal - if any. The changes are likely to be more schematic than anything. Everyone is on this ship together. Sink or float.

How did he get Eidsness? I have to imagine he was a pretty respected O-coordinator for the things he did at SDSU. He made some bad hires on the D-side. Let's see what he does next and decide. Hopefully with all the recruiting he has created some networks of his own by now.

FWIW, here's the history of coaching turnover with this staff

Gone
Atif Austin - RB, now at Northern Iowa
Houston Jones - WR, now at Minnesota State
Tony Sorrentino - TE, then WR, now with Minnesota Vikings
Aaron Wilkins - CB, then TE, now high school coach in New Mexico
Dan Jackson - CB, now at Vanderbilt
Ryan Napoli - Strength, now at Southeast Missouri State

New since original staff (and still here)
Nic McKissic-Luke - RB
Jason Onyebuagu - TE
Joseph Hawkins - WR
Nick Benedetto - Co D Coordinator/CB
Juney Barnett - Strength

So most of the guys who have left, other than Sorrentino and Jackson went down a level.

Also, Jackson is funemployed I believe. For making some not so chill remarks.
