Fridge would be an excellent choice. Don't let the Head coaching fiasco cloud your judgement. His offense would be a big improvement. Especially coupled with a kick ass o-line coach. His only negative would probably be with recruiting. Thats were a younger guy would be better. I will concede that while Fridge is a good X&O/teacher, having the holy trifecta of x&o/teacher/recruiter would be better. However, with our ath dept rev being in the bottom third of the acc this would probably be the best we could due with our limited finances.
Fridge was o-coordinator for a super bowl runner up and a college national championship winner. Maybe his age is borderline. I would normally say 65 is not to old, but it is obvious Fridge doesn't respect his body and he is probably 65 going on 75 and not the other way. Who knows thou, maybe he has slimmed up. I would not dismiss the possibility that he replaces MOC straight up. QB coach/playcaller. He did coach Boomer Esiasan. Beamers wife would also be stoked to have Mrs. Fridge in the Burg.

Fridge never won a super bowl... they lost to the 49ers.
btw i think friedg lost a ton of weight. I know at one time he had lost over 100pounds but im not sure if his diet continued.
Yea, great hire for the future. Don't think Beamer thinking about any future with that kind of hire.
