    Default Coaching Moves

    None in the GSC just yet, but some GSC alums and former players/coaches are on the move.

    Tulane: Memphis tight ends coach Will Hall is expected to become Willie Fritz’ new OC reports Dan Wolken of USA Today. Hall previously served as offensive coordinator at Louisiana Lafayette and as head coach at West Georgia and West Alabama.

    Kansas: KU has officially announced Chip Lindsey as offensive coordinator.

    Akron: Yesterday, Akron announced that Terry Bowden would not return after seven seasons.

    The Hall move is interesting....

    I figure UWG will have another massive turnover in some regard. I'd like to see Sam get a chance at a D1 school on the offensive side of the ball.

    I like him but since he doesn't call plays I'm not sure he's viewed as an offensive mind like a play caller would.

    Will is gonna have some retooling to convert those triple option guys to his system. That is great for him. I'm a fan wherever he goes.

    Well, with a record of 35 W - 52 losses. I am surprised he lasted this long.

    I hear ya. Yet, this was posted on the UNA forum:

    Zips fans must have a short memory. They were 2-22 the two seasons before Bowden took over. Since then, they've won their first bowl game ever, gone to another (just their third in school history), played in the MAC title game last season (second time ever), and upset Northwestern this year (who played Ohio State in the Big 10 tile game).

    TATER TOT will land on his feet(so long as the platform can hold him)

    I wouldn't mind Desmond coming back here as HC, if Dean chooses to leave at any point.

    And if we can stop being a dumpster fire in admin.

    Like most coaches, Hall has an agent that is constantly looking for better coaching positions for Hall. So, I’d be willing to bet he applied at a lot of schools.

    Interesting. They certainly seem to have boatloads of cash to pay some top-notch coaches there as they head into their second season of FBS.

    UNA and Liberty are the new ASUN members this year. It's odd having a conference foe in a different football classification. I imagine my Lions will land on their schedule sooner than later.

    Rumor is that Cooley took over the offense and playcalling last year.

    Hate to see Coach Williams leave. He is a great coach who cares tremendously about his players and co-workers and is extremely loyal. Serious loss for Delta State.

    Liberty: Sources tell FootballScoop Hugh Freeze has his offensive staff coming together. Sources tell us West Georgia offensive coordinator / offensive line coach Sam Gregg will join the staff coaching offensive line.
