So we know Dabo stepped up in defense of the coaching staff the other night on his call-in show. Which begs to question – if he’s not planning on removing any coaches, would the smart move be to add to the staff to help freshen things up? The NCAA approved allowance for more than 10 coaches that’s expected to begin in 2023, plus still have analyst positions where can bring in folks to maybe provide a spark behind the scenes.
You have former HCs like David Shaw and Scott Frost who have had HC and coordinator success that might could be of benefit either as additional coordinators or as analysts that could help behind the scenes. Willy Korn is doing well as Jamey Chadwell’s OC at Coastal, & his playing career struggles might make him a great mentor for someone like DJ who’s struggled under the weight of expectations. Would love to see a sole ST coach to focus on cleaning up our struggles in that department, as well as a LB coach to come in and allow Goodwin to focus on being DC and utilize his strengths as an analytical guy.
What are your guys’ thoughts on the idea of adding to the staff to bring in some changes that way?

Two things here.. 1) No more past players on our coaching staff - at least for a while / until we balance that a bit more evenly. 2) You're suggesting DJ is gifting us with another year of outstanding QB play for '23?
DJ would be benched. Cade would throw to open receivers and TEs and RB. We would run da ball if passing game stalls. We would fumble no more than once or twice again. Losing at home to SCAR would not be tolerated. That would be made clear to all players and coaches before the game. There would be punishment and rewards depending on the outcome.
