None of us really has any idea about how well this might work out. We can only judge by the results on the field. Can he get Austin back to his 2009 form? Can he get Dez to continue to play at an All-Pro level and continue to minimize his mistakes. Can Harris develop into an elite slot guy with great RAC skills. Can he get Danny Coale and Cole Beasley to take the next step and become NFL quality WRs. Can he do the same for that PS guy who showed well in camp last year, Tim Benford (I think that's what his name was).
WR coach is probably the 2nd most important position coach on offense these days, right after OL coach, IMO. This is an important hire so I hope Garrett brought in the right guy to develop players.
The good thing for Dooley is the progress Bryant and Harris made this year. Makes his job a lot easier. He might look like the best position coach in the NFL if Austin stays healthy and Bryant and Harris continue to at least play at the level they were at the end of the season.
