The title of Assistant Head Coach is not that unusual. I can remember one of
John L Smith's assistants, OL coach Art Fowler, having that title clear
back in 1995. And the offensive coordinator is not the coach of the "entire
offense." He is the coordinator of the offensive attack-- running and
passing. The position coaches on both offense and defense are much more
independent than most people think.As for all of this title sharing,
it makes you wonder if Coach Whittingham and made the right hire of his OC in
the first place, and not given a complete ingenue the position, maybe he
wouldn't be going though all of this now. Aaron Roderick, where have you
gone . . .
re: chrissyDE's national titles (89 and 91) were no different
than BYU's in 1984. All 3 were bestowed by voters in the polls. Miami
didn't play the #2 team in either of their bowls and was not considered the
national title game.
chrissyDennis Erickson did indeed win a couple of national titles,
but let's also not forget that the last time he brought one of his
defending national championship, #1-ranked teams to Provo, he helped launch Ty
Detmer's Heisman Trophy-winning season.Let's also not
forget, that that much maligned Michigan team that BYU played in the 1984
Holiday Bowl, BEAT another defending national championship Miami team.Utah's "Miami" connection may be a harbinger of doom for U.
It's funny... This article says it's about money. And that argument
makes sense for BYU and USU. But what about the U...? downgrading their OC to
Co-OC isnt about money... Hmmm...
@midpacmajor,Dennis Erickson has mutliple national titles I believe.
And national titles that are respected, having won national title games. Unlike the 1984 season
"There are two coaches in the state that have taken teams to top 2 national
rankings and undefeated seasons"Unfortunately for U, neither of
those coaches has taken U to the Top 1, which is what U have to do to become the
proud owner of one of those magnificent Crystal Football National Championship
There are two coaches in the state that have taken teams to top 2 national
