Assessment of Kirby after Year 3
I know fans of a lot of teams throw a tantrum if you even mention one bad quality about a coach, but here is my unbiased assesent of Kirby after his first 3 years.
Positives: Elite recruiting, good motivator, good with media and administration
Areas to Improve: Too conservative(especially against Bama), which is normal for a defensive minded head coach, Seems like he predetermines before a game that he will use a trick play on special teams and does a poor job of choosing when to use it, handled the qb sitution this season poorly, lastly I was underwhelmed with the promotion of Coley to OC. I understand showing loyalty to staff, but Enos, who is a much better playcaller, expressed interest in the job and we only offered a co-oc position.
