Special Teams and Analyst? Anyone have a clue?
DJ Mcarthy just got the FIU special teams coordinator job. I know he can recruit and he and he can coach.
Noah Joseph hasn't landed anywhere I think.
Joseph was actually quietly let go from IU (allowed to find other employment without a public firing) for apparently trying to hide a minor recruiting violation. So I doubt IU would rehire him
They made it look like he got a bigger title and more money to go to Rutgers.
He landed on his feet in a decent spot, so it worked out for both sides. I think because of the bigger title and more money, nobody questioned it too deeply.
Only came to light last spring when IU made a routine public disclosure of minor infractions, didn't mention Joseph by name, but he was the only staff member to leave in that timeframe
Apparently paid for one too many meals on a recruiting trip, which usually amounts to something like a day or 2 reduction off campus recruiting days for a single assistant as long as the meal is repaid. So typically not a big issue, but he apparently made the mistake of lying to the University when it was being looked into.
My dad was an accountant for IU when Corso was the coach and he would routinely violate IU's internal policies with his expenses. He'd turn in personal expenses that weren't covered by IU, or he'd go over the limit on his meals. Nothing nefarious or illegal though. However, my dad is a teetotaler and was a 1st Lieutenant in Vietnam, so he would keep flagging Corso's expenses and not pay them until they were either fixed or the expenses in question were removed. This went on for a few months and finally my dad got reassigned to a new role.
The main improvement for the 2020 Football Hoosiers should be in the Special Teams as the Penn. St. & Gator Bowl losses demonstrated. It will be critical for CTA to get this choice correct. I'm confident he will pick the right man & this area will be emphasized in practice.
FWIW I would like to see Coach Wright as the Special Teams Coordinator and have him pick a core of 6 or so guys not on the 2 deep to focus on punt and kick off situations in addition to the specialists and designated returners. I believe Coach Wright is a motivator and his focus would elevate our Special Teams. While I am at it I would like to see Moulton move up from the Offensive Analyst position to TE coach and for Coach Allen to seek an experienced coach (like, but not necessarily DeBord) for the Offensive Analyst position.
It's already been reported but not confirmed that Wright will Tight Ends Coach.
Jamie Speronis left IMG also. Would he be a candidate?
One possibility for safeties coach is Jason Jones
We don't have an opening for Safeties coach yet. Joey Jones hired Wommack at USA. He was Special Teams last year at MSU.
But if we do, as has been rumored with Coach Teegarden taking over Special Teams, Jason Jones
https://fausports.com/sports/football/roster/coaches/jason-jones/486 might be a good candidate, as has been rumored here.
Okay that's the kind of rumor I'm looking for. Did TA work with him at Ole Miss?
Yes, and Teegardin will be ST coach.
Read his bio/blurb, I'd be FOR having this guy as Safeties coach!
Jason Jones has been hired as safeties coach and coach T moves to special teams per sources. Good call whoever made this prediction about a week ago.
That is great!
Don’t like plugging Teegardin in to special teams. Not qualified
In general, DB's coaches make excellent ST coordinators. Like baseball catchers being good managers, ST coaching involves repetition, & attention to detail which DB's have been trained to do.
What specifically are you basing the “not qualified” assessment on ?
Especially since he has been ST coach in the past at previous schools.
What I really like is he is continuing to expand his Florida network. Coach Kevin Wright from IMG, Jason Jones from FAU and even Coach Kasey Teegardin is from Stuart, FL and South Fork High School. Welcome aboard Kevin Wright and Jason Jones.
People always overlook the fact that Teegardin had a 7 year coaching career at the DII and FCS levels (as a full assistant) before he was a grad assistant at IU
Grad Assistant at P5 schools isn't necessarily an entry level position anymore
Teegardin was ST coordinator at Valparaiso for 2 years before coming to IU as a GA.
Jason Jones was a good hire. I wish he were the CBs coach rather than the S coach, because he is far and away an upgrade over Shelby. And that’s not a knock on Shelby because he does fine but Jones was the National DB coach of the year in 2014. He’s coached many NFL CBs.
I also think this is a good hire. Love his experience.
Don’t take this the wrong way, but this is funny. In a warped humor sort of way.
You are probably not qualified to make such a judgement...
