I’ve already said I would try to woo Rhett Lashlee as OC and QB coach. I think he’d be a grand slam hire.
I would replace Guiton with Jason Phillips, maybe give JP co-OC or passing game coordinator title.
Pope is a good coach but he’s 65. I would replace him with Clarence McKinney.
I would hire Vic Koenning or David Bailiff as new DC, move D’Antonio to LBs, and push out Carrel. Koenning or Bailiff could assist with DBs as well. Another way to do it might be to bring in one of those two as a play calling co-DC with D’Antonio keeping the title, much like Meacham and Cumbie at TCU.
For the 10th assistant I would hire a successful ST coordinator from maybe the Sun Belt or C-USA.
