This guy deserves a thread of his own. If we're considering Chuck Long, then THIS guy has to get an interview.
The Monarchs lead the nation in total offense and offense points per game. Brian Scott is the coach behind it all.
My only thought on the lack of attn he gets by the higher ups on this board is Bud does not want that type of offense on the field gassing out his defense. ironically, our current offenses inability to stay on the field is even worse.
Total guess and could be completely wrong. U would think he would be all over these boards but u rarely hear about him.
I actually think we put the athletes on the field on defense that would be fine so who knows.
ODU's offense was on the field an average of 28:44 per game while our offense was on the field on average 30:07. All things being equal, I would think Bud's offense could handle being on the field an additional 1:23. Not to mention ODU's offense put points on the board averaging almost twenty points more than our offense.
Chuck Long runs the same air raid type offense. Not sure why Bud would be okay with one and not the other.
The ODU OC has never faced a decent defense. Every ODU game I've been to, they run a lot of the same routes and the WR's are always wide open. There's not a lot of speed on the defensive side of the ball in FCS imo. It would be a huge adjustment for him.
Number of plays is much more important than time of possesion if you are going to measure things like this.
It's all relative isn't it? He's working FCS offensive players against FCS defensive players. Scott's being successful against opponents in his division nationally. As far as running the same routes.....if it ain't broke, don't fix it. We could've used a little of that philosophy over the years......Orange Bowl against Kansas *cough* *cough*. So while going to FBS will be an adjustment, he'll have FBS players to work with.....just like Chip Kelly did went he went from New Hampshire to Oregon. Your argument doesn't hold water IMO.
To Loudon's post, here are some comparative stats.
VT Rushing Attempts 507
OD Rushing Attempts 469
VT Rushing Yardage 1896
OD Rushing Yardage 2007
VT Rushing TD's 18
OD Rushing TD's 34
VT Passing Attempts 224
OD Passing Attempts 586
VT Passing Yardage 3002
OD Passing Yardage 5120
VT Passing TD's 18
OD Passing TD's 44
So ODU, with their offense being on the field for over a minute less per game has managed 1,055 offensive plays compared to VT's 731. ODU averages 45 points per game while VT stands at a little over 25.
For every Chip Kelly success story, I'm sure there are many more failures making that adjustment. Again though, I do believe it would be better than what we've had. If VT wants him, they could have him. His 2011 salary was $72k.
Thanks for those stats. Clearly, even though we had more TOP, ODU's offense was far more effective at wearing down the opposing defense and moving the chains.
Chuck Long managed three points against North Dakota State in his first game as offensive coordinator at Kansas.
Morris essentially went from HS to Clemson (small Tulsa stop along the way), and made the adjustment.
Malzahn has made that same adjustment.
Tony Franklin has also made the adjustment.
It's very doable to adjust.

I'm not saying that Brian Scott couldn't do it, but I think it's being a little too optimistic (which goes against the theme of the day) to think that he would come on board and be able to recreate the offense at ODU with the same success (500+ yards a game). Heinke seemed to have 10 seconds to throw the ball on every play. Maybe that's great OL coaching or cruddy opponents. Either way, the QB won't get that amount of time at VT. ODU games always looked more like a video game with no defense to me and that's the reason I'm skeptical of bring in Scott.
To me, anything is better than what we had this year. That includes Long, Scott, or a computer generated play caller. I'll be happy when the coach is announced knowing it's not the same garbage we were put through this year.
Hilarious. Don't get this guy, his OL provide protection all day, his WR's get open all day long and his QB makes all the throws.
We sure wouldn't want any of that would we?
The QB has time to throw because all the teams are scared $hitless to blitz so they drop 8 into coverage thus the OL has 5 on 3. No mystery there. They are able to run the ball because the defense drops 8 into coverage so 2 of the OL can get to the second level pretty easy. They are able to throw the ball effectively because the receivers do a great job of running routes at different distances and spreading the 8 guys out. The best thing is that they only use about 7-8 different routes, but different positions run the routes differently each play. The TE might run a skinny post and the SE will run a dig underneath it and then the next play they each do the opposite from the other side of the formation.
This would NEVER work at VT...
Does any guru here know if this guy can at least get an interview. I would be shocked if he hasn't forwarded his resume.
The more I read about this guy, the more he becomes my top choice.
Seems like a no brainer to me... Young, hungry, knows all of the 757 coaches, has the top offense in the FCS... What more could you want?
Actually he isn't a 757 guy and hasn't been here that long. I would also be concerned about him putting together a staff, but the man can install an offense and call plays. I think he could call plays and help develop QB's but there offense only works with a QB with a huge IQ and someone who sees the field really well.
I really like what he does with the routes of all of his players and how he keeps things simple but can do a lot to get guys open.
If our O started putting up video game numbers just imagine Lane, and the recruits reactions.
Bud is on record saying that Oregon is the type of offense bed like to play along side.
Jmo but an air raid, if he runs that, will only work unitl you play a more talented pass rush than you can handle. Routes take too long to develop.
I wouldn't put ODU in that category......Heinecke typically get's rid of the ball pretty quickly.....a lot of YAC.
