Come on


The defensive staff changes after 2016 happened because we couldn't compete to keep Leavitt and Clarke, and Tumpkin got canned. MT either likes two of the replacement hires (Els, plus Drake a year later), or else he's starting to run into the same kinds of things previous coaches ran into IMO - questionable admin support (saving $$ on AC salaries), and/or difficulty selling CU to assistant coaches after all the turnover. Nobody ever wants to acknowledge it, but we've had a hard time bringing in and keeping experienced ACs since Barnett left. It's a problem that I'm not convinced we've overcome yet. It was juicebox's fault, then Embree, then MM. Maybe the problem isn't the coaches. Very curious to see how MT fills out the rest of the positions.

I guess I went off on a tangent. I think the MM hire at Ole Miss is a good one. It will be interesting to see if that defense improves. I think he's got Charles Clarke there, too. They worked well together.
