Per CalRivals and FootballScoop Marcel Yates to coach safeties at Oregon
JUST LEAVE US ALONE
Alright. My fun pick here? Thomas Decoud.
So Oregon hires TDR to be their DC. Cal hires Heyward to fill in for TDR. Oregon hires Yates to fill in for Heyward. Now who do we take from Oregon?
We will probably have Heyward coach DB and hire someone to coach LB.
I think there's no way Heyward doesn't get involved in DBs. Dude's a proven master; why not utilize those talents AND use his position as a recruiting tool? Heck, I don't care which title he keeps (OLBs, etc.) as long as he provides the greatest benefit to our Bears!
In Wilcox I trust...
My impression is that Yates was not as good a coach as Alexander, being that AZ's defense was not up to the par of the Takers, and Alexander did not have much to work with (Dykes recruits). But this might not be completely accurate, anyway I hope Wilcox' can attract a top-caliber coach to fill Yates' shoes.
That's what happens when half of our staff are from Oregon....
