Not sure I see the major upgrade in the staff

I'm not knocking them. They might turn out to be very good. Kapilovic will be an upgrade. But based on resumes, which is about all we have to go off of, the DC and OC aren't any more qualified than what we've had recently. Chiv was inexperienced, so I do think Johnson is an upgrade, but his resume is pretty comparable to Lindgren. Compare Summers to DJ. Pretty similar experience. It's hard to tell how valuable the experience as a quality control guy for an SEC power is. Maybe that's a bigger deal than I take it to be. The rest of them? Who knows. The three quality control positions will help.

I think ultimately MT's toughness will make the difference, along with better recruiting. I'm hopeful that we'll see obvious improvement right away with different coaches, but it doesn't seem like it happens that way very often. It would be awesome to see the offense improve like the defense did in 2016. That was one time when it was obvious. I can definitely see MT pushing and coaching the coaches better than MM or anyone else we've seen since Mac. I think MM's strategy was stability, consistency, building class depth. That led him to keep around coaches that didn't seem to be performing. I have a feeling MT isn't going to be like that.
