I dont think it shocked anyone. It's just that Eberflus was touted heavily by Ryan and it was assumed that he was deep in his camp. Eberflus has also followed Ryan everywhere up to this point. Most figured a sense of friendship/loyalty would play a part. But like I mentioned in another post, the opportunity to hitch himself onto the Kiffen coaching tree could do wonders for his career.
The news that he's very familiar with the Tampa 2 is a big deal and something that wasn't widely known until the last few days.
