Boy, I’m certain to get a lot of DV’s for posting “in the middle” here, but going to do so, none the less. @SoFL_Dawg and @texdawg , I certainly appreciate both of you on this board, but I’ll add my opinion, just because I can….

Fromm is and always will be a DGD imo. I really hate to give (and let me emphasize “hate”) credit where credit may be due, but I believe Chaney helped Fromm to become the media darling he became. He constructed a game plan that protected Fromm and quite simply made him look a little better (as an overall player, not as a DGD) than he actually was.  Coley came in and made NO constructive game plan changes to Fromm’s development. But then again, I was not in the film room, the planning of offensive plays each week or in the huddle when plays were called, but from a logical standpoint, I cannot see Coley sending in the play, ”****, but DO NOT THROW THE BALL TO THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD.” But I do see where Coley didn’t emphatically change the offensive philosophy either. Opposing defensive coordinators in the SEC saw this as well.  His last season, it was TOO obvious Fromm refused to throw over the middle, even if Wolf, DRob or Cook was open. He insisted on throwing outside the hashes.

Fromm will and always will be a DGD imo, but I do think he might have been a little over hyped as an overall player. Go DAWGS!
