There are two OCs that are either available or may be available soon. One is Jim Chaney from Tennessee. He has NFL experience and worked with Drew Brees at Purdue. Another is Dana Bible from NC State. He has had good success developing QBs. What do you think? Would they fit in with Beamer?
Bible had success at BC and NCST, but IMO its too much like what we run today. NCST is a bit better, but I often see the same inconsistency from them that I see from us (remember the UVA game).
Chaney has done good things at UT. Don't know how he fits in though.
Personally I hope the contact to Briles amounts to something. One of his assistants could probably do great things at VT if Beamer lets him. Obviously there is a lot of noise about Franklin too, but IMO he wont be an option, and he might not be the best option anyway.
I think if Mack Brown retires after this year like 247rumors stated is a possibility then go for Bryan Harsin. Was the OC at Boise state and now co-OC with Major Applewhite at Texas. Young energetic and last time I check his offenses' were pretty dang good. More then likely a pipe dream though.
He would be an excellent fit for our program. IIRC Beamer and Brown often consult each other. If Brown does retire it could be a real possibility.
Yup...we recently visited Texas for offense...and a few years ago to check out their recruiting practices. I figure they will be consulted...but not sure what would come out of it.
whoever beamer hires you can best bet that he will have to have connections to the 6 hr radius of blacksburg. if they don't meet at a minimum that requirement, he won't be hired. that is to assume beamer will actually hire a new OC.
Something to think about. If Chad Morris leaves Clemson for a HC job who do you think Dabo will go after? My guess would be Tony Franklin. Also rumors at uva is that Lazor and Reid might be gone after this year. I just hope VT is being proactive NOW.
We don't need to fix anything. Wearee still a couple of plays away. The boys just need to focus more....
After what happened with Franklin at Auburn I think he'd be a horrible fit considering the way things were set up. He was fired in half a season with a similar coaching staff to VT, and he didn't have "his guys" supporting him. I think he'll be an excellent OC somewhere, but not at VT under Beamer.
Too similar to the Auburn situation.
