I must have missed the D-back leaving.  Not surprised he did a pretty good job with the first string cb but the guys behind him not so much.  Where did he end up going?

You think Morris would leave to take an OC position after being an HC.  I sure UTSA has their eye on him when they can afford to fire Wilson or his contract is up.  Buying out contracts on coaches is getting harder on non p-5 schools.

With the strong possibility of SL leaving next year(assuming another highly successful season), yes I do.

I think whoever is the qb coach or the OC they will most likely come from the Leach Tree.  Morris would fit the bill.

One interview question I liked to ask is, do you have a short yardage play where the qb lines up under center?

DRC tweeted earlier in January about Coach Brown not returning stating FootballScoop posted about it earlier that day: https://www.dentonrc.com/sports/unt-cornerbacks-coach-nate-brown-will-not-return-next-season/article_4b8d17c0-8d4c-5773-b5b6-f0bab4545c71.html

Not sure where Brown will end up, but his fiance also currently teaches at an elementary school in Denton.  Recently on another thread, someone mentioned these 2 positions (RBs/CBs) have already been filled, just waiting to announce for whatever reason.

Always hire from within if you can.   You have 2 good options already there.

Pass Game Coordinator Tommy Mainord

WR Coach Jo-el Filani

 

That's a good idea.  Promote Mainord to OC, then Filani to Pass Game Coordinator?  Find a new WR coach?

Or keep Filani as the WR coach while adding the responsibilities of the pass game coordinator and then hire a QB coach.

Simon hasn't coach a game at Memphis yet has he?  He was at ASU until this month.  LaTech grad.

I'm wondering if there's a few more guys we could steal from WSU...

 Something like a Mason Miller (OC) and Drew Hollingshead (QB Coach) combo.

Miller is an OL coach, played FB, has been an assistant HC and OC and various position coaches (under Mumme and Norvell, I think, before Leach), but has also been a HC (Tarlton and/or McMurry).

Hollingshead is the guy who's taken over the QB drills and booth duties that Harrell had before him at WSU.

I think Miller makes around $300k. Don't know about Hollingshead.

They are very good friends. I imagine USC WR coach pays more than UNT. I would try to attach if it meant doubling pay.

What about moving Filani to OC?  This is purely a question and not a suggestion.  Anyone have any insight in to his coaching ability and future positions?  I mean, he would be like Graham was a couple of years ago, but with experience in our program and the ability to tutor under SL.  If I am crazy, say so.  Have no idea his coaching reputation and if this is just crazy talk.

I think if you are going to promote from within Mainord is the hire. Filani is a good wr coach. He is a decent recruiter.
