    I reported this on the DN Forum before it broke here. Both coaches were terminated by their respective colleges Clemson and A&M and picked up by Georgia. Looks like a couple of real veterans in a good hire. You folks agree?

    Some really good second hand news. /s Both of these coaches are excellent hires. Not too shabby on the recruiting trail. Go Dawgs!

    Probably so !! It’s a stake in their hearts to see Kirby and our Dawgs forming an Enduring at the highest levels football program !!

    Could be a Gump fan or the u g l y orange folks of TN or UF to Lol !! Makes them so sick to see the success our Dawgs are having !! 😂

    It’s easy to imagine Streeter taking up Faulkner’s role, while Dickey would likely pick up some of Bobo’s previous responsibilities.

    Honestly I hope that the opposite is the case. Streeter - who was scapegoated by Dabo Swinney for years of recruiting failures at WR and the fact that the rest of the ACC has caught up to their scheme - is a spread guy. Dickey meanwhile has been a lot of places but is mostly a pro-style guy. I don't want UGA going down the spread offense path. Winning championships with the spread requires multiple 1st and 2nd round picks at WR. UGA has 2 first round picks at the position in its history - Lindsay Scott and AJ Green - and a single 1000 yard WR. Also the spread hasn't been nearly as successful as the hype indicates. Most of the teams that have won titles with it have had future NFL Pro Bowl QBs like Deshaun Watson, Cam Newton, Trevor Lawrence etc. that would have been successful in pretty much any college system. Better to run an offense where you can win with 5th round picks like Matt Mauck, Greg McElroy, AJ McCarron (also 2 titles) and Stetson Bennett IV at QB. Another thing: those spread offense teams like Oregon, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Penn State and I guess now you can add USC and even lately Clemson are a lot better at developing QBs and WRs for the NFL than they are winning college titles. I don't want to see UGA go that route.

    It's all about the TEAM, I think Streeter and Dickey will add to our offensive and defensive refinement as they blend into the TEAM approach. Within two to three years they will have amassed a reputation that earns them both OC positions. Given the talent they will have, I see only great things for both and the DAWGS.

    I have no gripe with these additions, though don't think they'll stay long. Since the sky is apparently the limit, I don't see why we can't reach for people that truly bleed red and black and will be instantly connected to the culture, like a Hines Ward type of addition. Go Dawgs!

    Good or bad say what you want about Nick Saban. But when he gives a coach who is down on his luck a landing spot and chance to rehab his resume it is commendable. Sarkisian has said as much as he "owes it all to Coach Saban".

    Seems like CKS is doing some of the same thing. When you help someone up it builds loyalty and they will work hard for you.

    Interesting hires for sure. I don't believe CKS is just helping a couple of guys out down on their luck. I think he's always planning ahead. Maybe(maybe) looking to have the ability(option) to switch to a spread system for Gunner at some point? Utilize his unique running skills? JUst a thought.
