That's according to Mark Blaudschun in the Boston Globe. He stops short of calling Jeff Commissiong the new defensive line coach, but since Rivals stamped his picture on their front page yesterday, it's pretty safe to assume that hire will happen. (FYI, the article also says that Kyle Flood tried to hire BC's defensive coordinator/LB coach Bill McGovern.) BC fans loved Ben Sirmans as RB coach. Dave Brock had mixed reviews, with everyone raving about him as TE coach. Their offense wasn't so hot last year, but there were extenuating circumstances (Brock was the interim OC, with Kevin Rogers quickly being forced out early in the season due to a clash with Frank Spaziani.) The feedback isn't so hot with Commissiong. I can't weigh in on that, but two points seem salient: 1. BC to Rutgers is as strong of a stylistic shift as you can get within the 4-3 defense. BC was all about size and strength, while Rutgers under Schiano emphasized speed and athleticism. Kyle Flood has said that the new defensive coordinator will still call a "high-pressure" defense, although he hasn't made any promises about the personnel. Maybe they're planning to go bigger, or maybe Commissiong was miscast in the BC scheme. 2. If Rutgers is sticking with the same defense, Gary Emanuel was just let go from Purdue last month. Like many mediocre former coordinators, he was an excellent position coach. Emanuel's lines were great at Rutgers, and look at the players he turned out at Purdue. The guy is right up there with Dave Walker as one of the top positional coaches in college football who aren't household names. Perhaps Emanuel was not interested, but if he was, Flood should have hired him back in an instant. Update: Gary Emanuel joined the Indianapolis Colts. Now everything is starting to make sense.
