If this is true then I am actually really happy with the staff we are putting together. This will be much better than what we had this year.

I like the hire. Sparano may be a mediocre HC/playcaller but the man knows his offensive line. He should help whip our oline back into shape.

When I saw it on Rotoworld, I thought I was tripping. This is a great hire for the O Line. Excellent hire.

This has to be false. If I'm to understand here, Allen has no connections and is in over his head. Acquiring a talent like Sparano isn't feasible for HC who is so bad and has no connections.

Side note:

Notice none of the DA is the worst ever crown are posting in here?

Seriously though. Great hire. Experienced and has been around some great Olines in his coaching career.

Good hire. He is a good oline coach and producing the run.


Side note: I wish the people who complain about how some people are making this forum worse would actually stop making this forum worse.

There you go
If hiring an assistant head coach doesn't scare you. Then you're oblivious.

why would hiring an AHC scare you?
A young HC saying he needs help (any young HC does) is a positive and will only help his development

Don't they just give them those extra titles as a form of protection? I thought I read that somewhere.....

Yes. It blocks lateral moves. Face to palm for anyone thinking otherwise, titles are meaningless and often created to play pseudo political staff games.

OK thanks for confirming. So the logic I get from this is we are protecting this dude to be our line coach for quite some time....

While I agree with that being the big reason for naming an Assitant HC...
I would have to say it must give him some greater power than just Oline coach, otherwise why would he sign it?

IF he signed just as oline coach does well he can get promoted to a OC next year maybe... Because he signed as a AHC, he can't be promoted to OC... because AHC is above OC IIRC

So your saying he signed as an assistant head coach for no other reason than to limit his chance at a promotion?
