RB Coach Gary Brown has left for a job with the Cleveland Browns. At least from a recruiting angle, for this spot it would help to add an assistant with good ties to Maryland/DC or Florida. Randy Trivers (ex Syracuse), Aaron Harris (Delaware), Tyree Foreman (Temple), Phil Zacharias (ex Maryland), or Desmond Robinson (ex Syracuse) make sense as far as pure speculation goes. I also like Terry Richardson, who's currently on staff at UConn.
The Maryland game is scheduled for 9/26.

The Big Lead reports that the Star-Ledger and the New York Daily News are consolidating sports operations, with the News soon to get its Devils and Nets coverage from the Ledger, and the Ledger likewise with the Yankees and Mets. Weiss does what he can, but can they do something about getting more RU football coverage in the Daily News? Not many fans are going to shed any tears for the health of Advance Publications, but it's always terrible to see more downsizing.
