If he wants to return to the NFL, why would he turn down the Chiefs?
Andy probably wanted his offensive lineman coach to be his understudy.
Was it Norv or Tina who sang "What's Lovie got to do, got to do with it?"
Agree, and say what your will about Rob’s schemes, but he could get the player’s fired up.
I’m wondering how they respond behind a dinosaur and a robot.
Kiffin was TB's DC from 1996-2008. Do you know how many times the were a Top 10 D? Every year except '96 & '05. The most points his D allowed I this timeframe was the 22ppg in '05. This man still had really good D's when he left EVEN THOUGH the front office never replaced his star guys.
how has the game passed him by?why does everyone keep saying that?
He is widely considered to be one of the preeminent defensive coordinators in modern football, as well as one of the greatest defensive coordinators in NFL history. Father of the widely imitated “Tampa Cover 2” defense, Kiffin's philosophy is one of the most influential in modern college and pro football.
Yeah, I grabbed the quote from Wiki, but it doesn't change what are the facts.
So, I guess there is NO WAY you guys would want that dinosaur LeBeau.
I will be honest. Yes, I would want him, but if I can his disciple Ray Horton instead, I'd prefer that. Same here. I would rather take his disciple, Lovie Smith.
Kiffen is a great defensive mind no question about it... However I question the cover two back end with the current crop of cornerbacks on this team.
Probably because he knows he has the Cowboys job if he wants it, and Garrett impressed him at Tampa Bay.
I also heard that he and Jim Washburn were at each other's throats in Philly and he was throwing coaches under the bus weekly at the end of last year, so maybe Andy isn't that beloved among the defensive coaching fraternity at the moment.
1. Jerry probably will pay more
2. Jerry's dome vs. KC outdoors in Decemeber
People are crazy not to want Kiffin as a D Coordinator.
The guy can flat out coach defense.
As for us having corners that are good in man-to-man... Kiffin would play man-to-man a lot. It wouldn't be all zone all the time.
He is known for getting the most out of his secondary, even when he doesn't have the best athletes. I think he'd be fine with having very good corners instead of average ones. Shouldn't hurt too much.
That was supposed to say "wasn't".
that would be Harrison.
No worries, I do that all the time.
...Consider that, from 1955 (when USC started keeping official statistics) through 2009, no USC team ever allowed more than an average of 386.5 yards per game. Then came Coach Lane Kiffin and his father and defensive guru, Monte. The Trojans allowed a record average of 400.0 yards in 2010. That average dropped to 374.8 last year, but now USC opponents are averaging 406.4 yards per game. USC could well be on their way to breaking that dubious record for a second time in three years. The Trojans finish the regular season with three opponents who average more than 400 yards per game this season: Arizona State (457.8), UCLA (514.9) and Notre Dame (404.4). It’s actually USC’s run defense that has taken the biggest dip so far. USC opponents averaged 128.2 rushing yards per game in 2009, 140.5 in 2010, 111.4 in 2011 and 156.9 this season. In terms of pass defense, the numbers go: 212.3 in 2009, 259.5 in 2010, 263.3 in 2011 and 249.6 this season. For the sake of completion, points allowed per game goes: 19.8 in 2009, 26.7 in 2010, 23.6 in 2011 and 24.2 this season.
Monte would be JJ best hire.
Please stop with the age. The man can flat coach defense that is all I care about.
