to be the LBs coach.
Good lord. Smith is certainly qualified, and I get that Schiano wants to reward his friends and loyal former staffers, but this is ridiculous. You're telling me he couldn't have found someone else who was qualified for the job? Bob Fraser is a great LB coach, so I don't even see what's the point in the first place.
Stay tuned - I'm going to do a survey later tonight to see who might be a realistic option, besides an internal hire. (Pure speculation - Dave Cohen has DC experience, and one rumor has been that Dave Brock was trying to hire him at Delaware.)
