Michigan Football: Coach’s Corner — Where Are We At?

Was asked on another thread my opinion on a couple of coaches. Would be one of the most unprofessional things I could do to call for firing of a coach. So I will not do that. I will give you a few thoughts on where the program is and what I will be looking for going forward.

#1, I am on record that is would take five years before we knew how the program is doing. And that includes coaches. I know many of my Blue Brothers think that is nuts, and I respect that opinion. Here is my thinking. This roster needed to basically be completely rebuilt. There was not enough size, quality depth, or overall skill necessary to proper execute the new staffs schemes. I just did not see how they could be fixed overnight.

The coaching (IMO) has shown me they are competent. By that I mean they do a very good job of teaching the basic fundamentals of the game. What (IMO) separates the superior from the competent is ability to take the talent and mold it into a cohesive football team. On that measure I give the staff an incomplete. I also believe the entire staff deserves another season to accomplish this goal. If after next season we are seeing the same things, then we might have to start reevaluating certain parts of the program. If the players continue to put the work into S&C and summer workouts and we see no improvement that (IMO) will be sign something needs fixed.
