Agreed, but we are still missing two very important position coaches and offensive and defensive line and I have not heard any possible names so that will still be something Whiz needs to take care of asap.


Agreed. It's arguably the most important parts of the staff and the way our O-Line has underperformed the past couple of years, it needs to be a significant hire IMO. Bring back MUNCH Laughing


Yea I dont even know who is out there to go out and hire it seems like the majority of the teams have filled that vacancy.



Maybe they're trying to take another College Team's Defensive Coordinator??

Laughing


Should've went after Chris Rumph.

I know hindsight is 20/20, but when you look at how things are shaping up with our new staff, we got twice as fortunate to land Ken Whizenhunt. As if joining our organization wasn't good enough, it's even better that he didn't join the Texans (our division rival, I might add). He was one of their frontrunners in the coaching hunt before they signed Bill O'Brien. We're all doing the "happy" dance because of all the moves being made with our staff, but just imagine if all this was going on in the Texans camp. Pretty freaking scary thought. That makes us very fortunate in two ways. It's happening for us, and not for them.

Because of this, I feel that we need to give credit where it's truly due. Yes, Ruston had a hand in it and I applaud him for what he's done. But Ruston couldn't have pulled it off if not for certain events that took place a couple of weeks prior to the signing. We owe all of this to one man...Kansas City Chiefs PK, Ryan Succop. That's right! Had he made that field goal and won the game, it wouldn't have went into overtime, and the Chargers' season would've been over right there. But because the Chargers made the playoffs, that delayed Whizenhunt's opportunity to immediately sign on with anybody as HC, pretty much forcing the Texans move sooner and snatch O'Brien rather than wait around. Thank you Ryan Succop! Your missed FG paved the way to a brighter future for our franchise. Oh and Ruston, you did good too. A big KUDOS to you both!!!

Very Happy

That is pretty funny. Depending on how the next 10 years play out, maybe he deserves a place in our Ring of Honor!

Ron Aiken is a guy Whiz has worked with a lot in the past. He is currently the Oregon Ducks D-Line coach. Could be an option.

Looks like Munch to Steelers. Disgusting but at least it's not Houston. Still I hate the Steelers just as much.

I gotta say... I'm gonna hate the Steelers a whole lot less if their coaching tree gives us a Lombardi trophy!

Whiz reminds me a lot of Cowher. Not completely sure why.

That didnt take long. Fills the staff. Blah hires IMO.

Bostad did coach at Wisconsin as the O-Line coach from 06-11.

They have always had strong OL prospects as long as I can remember.

Truthfully can you tell me the best o-line coach (besides Munch) that were available. Same with the defensive line?

I can't. Lol. All I can think of is Munch and Washburn.

If he coached the Wisconsin lines then that's good to me. They always have a dominating line.

I did say Bostad coached at Wisconsin which was impressive. The other guy is just blah to me. Coached Derrick Morgan at GT and was in Buffalo for a season but other than that, he's not impressive.
