    This looks to be a solid replacement, I will miss having Cordell Upshaw though.

    Maybe. Given how late Upshaw left, this may be more of a situation where SAU was trying to fill a coaching spot with anyone who was willing to make the jump. I think Pittman will certainly have better talent to work with at SAU than he had NSU.

    Having said that, the loss of Upshaw is a blow to SAU. During both stints as SAU's D-line Coach, Upshaw made SAU's front four a force to reckon with in the league. Just to give an idea of the difference Upshaw made, in 2016 SAU had 17 sacks in 12 games--Upshaw was not the D-line Coach; in 2017 SAU had 23 sacks in 11 games--Upshaw was the D-line Coach. Six sacks more, playing one less game, with the same d-line he did not even recruit.
