Potential New DB Coach Kerry Cooks

Recommended Posts

I can confirm that Kerry met with Seth and co at the convention this past week. It looks like things are heating up and pointing towards him being the next DB coach. It would be a nice addition to the defensive coaching staff and he is a heck of a recruiter. If there is no snags it looks like he will be the new addition.

Huh?   Isn't he the CB's coach at OU?   He just signed an extension for next year a few weeks ago... was he let go between then & now?  Maybe he doesn't see eye-to-eye with new DC Alex Grinch there?
He was Asst-DC at OU last year, and Co-DC at Notre Dame prior to that.   

This would be a coup if he comes here just to coach DBs.

I hope he is the new DB coach, and that he has the same success here that he did at OU.  Todd Dodge was going to "put a circle around DFW" to recruit.  He also got his initial coaches from local high schools as well.  Seth Littrell is showing how shortsighted it is to concentrate only on your home state - even if it is a big and largely populated home state, like Texas.  Courage.

It is looking like he not going to be retained by Grinch at OU. He did meet with Seth at the convention. I am thinking we are hoping to get Cooks as a one year bounce back guy with OU picking up most of the bill. But I am hearing he is drawing some P5 interest so it is not a for sure deal

Interesting move by Grinch, and one I wouldn't think Riley would be on-board with... but hey, their loss would be our gain, even if for 1 year.

Man, I would feel A LOT better about our young/inexperienced CBs next year if Cooks were our CBs coach & Co-coordinator with Reff.

I wonder why he would come here?  It looks like a lot of p-5 teams would be interested in him.  I love to have him here and he is from Irving, TX.

If he played basketball at Nimitz, as a Senior he likely played against Grant McCasland.

Dude looks like a good recruiter which is a tad bit easier at OU of course.  Still, if he can bring some of that success here I am in.

Did Ekeler make our defense better while he was here?   If so, there's absolutely nothing wrong with his tenure here.
And if coach Cooks decides to come here for 1 season and then go to some P5 school somewhere... if our DBs are better for him being here, then I'm all for it.

You can't hire scared. If you hire people that you don't think anyone else wants or will want, why are you hiring them?

Good coaches and continuity is very important! He may not be here even during a full recruiting cycle! Maybe he wants to hitch his wagon to Seth? Ek’s RV is for lease!

Looks like our sources are not so reliable?
