Who's decision is it ultimately? The HCs or the AD?

The AD. He gave his blessing to the HC to give me the offer.

Thanks everyone for the congrats. Im excited for the opportunity.

That is awesome. You are going to do great. Any plans on what you are going to run offensively and defensively?

Defensively last year we ran 3-3 stack and really only got creative in our coverage calls. We rotated and misrepresented our coverage really well and it worked.

This year we gained some size up front but lost a couple smaller guys so we switched to a split 4-4. We had success with that as well but I felt our backers became far more reactionary and lost aggression.

We play in a run heavy conference with very little passing and very terrible pass coverage.  DW, Veer and Pistol offset I are prominent so I will stay with 8 in the box.

Offensively we ran a shitty I formation last year that some previous coach had drawn on napkins with no blocking assignments, splits, pulling... no any basics of an offense (no wonder they went the 2 years prior without winning), this year at my coaching the offense was changed. I downloaded every offense from this site and begged the HC to pick one. We went to the grand rapids glazier clinic and he sat in the RPO classes fell in love and revamped the offense (still just made up plays without the previously mentioned essentials but I knew what he was trying to accomplish so they were added in) way more success but still underwhelming. I did confirm though this season that the only significant adjustment made to us airing it out was we got blitzed way more. Pass D is basically to put their best 2 guys at safety and pray. I want to take advantage of that. I need to find an OC and put some work in fast. If I had to venture a guess id probably say we will go with an ECO style offense but I will hold off until I can hire an OC (or promote my DBs coach to DC and take over the OC responsibilities) and go from there.

Congrats!   

Sounds like you're already putting things together in your head. What are you doing about the Off season work out schedule?

Dave if you ever want to come to Michigan and be the OC for a guy with 1/4 of your experience who looks up to you as a coach more than 99% of the coaches known to him for a pitifully small amount of money I would gladly hand you the position.

You realize he runs the Double Wing?   That dinosaur that aint really an offense.   I mean, come on, just a couple of play action passes.  Who in the world does that?

Did you happen to see a team win a NC in PW last year running just a simple DW? The game winning drive was literally power, power, power and power.

I'm well aware that he runs the DW.  I would gladly let him go nuts with it.

They were in gun, so there was no toss.
