    I'm hoping this is signalling a big development in Kirby as a head coach. I'm hoping this is him finally realizing that we have to innovate on offense to get over the hump. That you can't force the offensive scheme onto the talent you have but have to develop the scheme to take advantage of what your players do best. You also have to adapt to the changing landscape of college football.

    Another thing I LOVE about this is it's showing Kirby is willing to admit a mistake and correct it. The inability to make the tough decision and make the change when needed was what cost Richt so many times and probably contributed more to his firing than anything else. Sticking with Martinez at DC was the prime example.

    Kirby being willing to admit a mistake and putting the program ahead of his ego or feelings of loyalty is a great sign.

    Dawgs needed to make a change and do it with an exclamation point. Sounds like this has been accomplished w M. I will bet anyone that The Dawgs will perform at a higher level next year and JF will not be missed. Don't take that wrong, but let's just be honest...We need a QB that can WIN games when it matters and not just w his arm. It's been too easy for other teams to gameplan against us. I'm not talking about regular season, I'm talkin about when it matters...Championships...Excited that CKS is working to put us in the best spot to make that happen.

    No then we all have to hear the meltdown on how broken our defense is

  • NOVADAWGNOVADAWG Posts: 900 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I for one wouldn’t care. Defense needs to see something new because we will likely see some type of spread offense in the playoff.

    Speculation on another thread that Coley is leaving. Anyone know how well Monken can recruit compared to Coley? I know Coley was important for the south Florida connections.

    We flipped a WR from LSU. So did Maryland. High octane offenses don't recruit themselves. Recruiting is brutal.

    Notice I put the part about putting guys in the league too? That's probably the biggest factor that recruits consider.

    Todd Monken will make $1.1M ($390k in base salary, $710k supplemental pay) in 2020. The length of his contract has not been made available yet (as far as I know).

    Buster Faulkner will make $150k in 2020.

    You'd think. He made $250K last year. Doubt he came here to make 100k less.

    No I gotcha, and I agree. Just saying he surely didn't come here for a lower title AND a lot less money. He has got to get a pay bump. Doesn't make sense otherwise, not to me anyway.

    Pretty sure Buster will be the one who takes over for Munken if and when he leaves in a few years. That’s what I got out of that hire.

    The analyst job is much lower pay. They can't interact with the players. They are there as a think tank for the OC/DC. They are then in a position to take a coaching job, which would involve a big pay hike.
