Names to watch for
DC: UGA's Todd Grantham, UF's Dan Quinn. Both schooled in stopping spread offenses, both with NFL experience
DC will now be Kelly and the
most important hire. Name I am hearing that's bantied around most inside Novacare is Todd Grantham UGA
Don't be surprised if Mark Whipple ends up on Chip Kelly's staff in Philadelphia.
Whipple was an offensive assistant with the Eagles in 2007-2008. He's been the Browns' QBs coach the past 2 years. He was New Hampshire's OC from 1986-87. Around that time, Kelly was a defensive back at New Hampshire.
Grantham was an offensive lineman in college. I was an offensive lineman in HS.
I know BFD. But my point is, offensive linemen _know_ defense.
When you get your head rocked by an effin inebacker, your knowledge of football increases exponentially. Ask any O lineman.
I like Grantham as a DC. He knows football.
