Separate of anything, but I think that people confuse Belicheck's disdain for having to talk to the media with his complete personality. He must do something we don't see to instill the type of loyalty he gets out of players. My guess is BB would be just fine interviewing for a job somewhere.


I agree with this. And also, I wouldn't describe Nick Saban (a Belichick disciple) as a rah-rah and the recruits are dying to play for him. Same with Urban Meyer. Recruits aren't dumb, they want a guy who will coach them up and get them prepared for the NFL. Belichick would be an excellent coach at any level. Certainly better than Herm Edwards.


Except Cleveland.


He took Cleveland to the playoffs one year and beat Parcells, I believe. Who were his QBs in Cleveland? Was it still Bernie Kosar? That didn't help.


The 1994 Cleveland Browns went 11-5 and beat the Bill Parcells coached NE Patriots twice that year.

Week 9 the Browns won 13-6
Week 17 in the first round of the playoffs Browns won 21-13.

Cleveland QB that season?

1. That's one hell of a way to land recruits.
2. Does this start up the Diaco-Roman-Lembo-PCJR talk again?

I just want to reaffirm I am 100% in favor with the Addazio hire. Coaching staff is off to a strong start. Addazio will be a great hire for BC

Anyone know how many schools interviewed Diaco during the hiring season and did not offer?

BC, Temple and Wisconsin definitely. I'm not sure of others. Purdue and Colorado seem like possible fits but I don't remember reading that he interviewed at either.

I hated the hire initially due to other expectations. I remain annoyed at the BC AD office for its third world information management abilities. However, while Addazio does not seem like a homerun, I don't find it fair to say he's "proven nothing" he does have an impressive background as a recruiter and as a position coach. I have turned around somewhat on the hire where I now plan to give him the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. I really like his assistant coach hires, even Day considering that the Devine rumor appears to be nothing more than rumor.

At the same time the perception of Diaco has taken a hit in the process, rightly or wrongly, so that takes some of the perception/expectation sting away.

Maybe it's a holiday 10-2 season but I'm warming up to Addazio, especially because of the hires on the defensive staff.

Article on Boston.com today talks about Daz and at the end outlines how he's been off recruiting since he's arrived. Glad to hear the effort's there. I think any new hire would've doing the same. Sounds like he's got good energy, but time will tell whether or not he can recruit for BC, and whether or not he can coach the team to wins. I think I will lay off the negativity toward this hire and move on to the "wait and see" phase.

I hated the beginning of the article where it talked about how he was hired Immediately after giving BB a pep talk.

He's gonna have 3 years to win people over. That reality forces negativity into submission. However, it's really not unlike the reaction to Spaz... "hope he proves us wrong". If he lays down like Spaz did against Clemson and VT, you will see the same vitriol. The reality is that BB's search gave Daz little margin for error... which is completely unfair considering the situation he is inheriting (though Daz will have $10mm to suffer such an injustice).

If Diaco had been hired, what would HJS have complained about? Coordinator hires? Paid him too little? Said too many nice things about ND at his intro press conference?

The difference with the two hires is that everybody, with the exception of GDF and a handful of idiots, thought Spaz was not the right man for the job. We literally ALL knew he wasn't. This hire is more up in the air. On the face of it all, most think there were better options, but most aren't saying that Daz can't be a head coach like we knew Spaz couldn't be. He's got better energy, and at the very least it appears he's going to bust his ass. Whether of not that translates to success on the field, we'll just have to wait and see.

Jhigg,

I understand your skepticism and hope your "kick in the nuts" turns out to be a glancing blow.

I think Addazio will turn out to be a really strong hire and in many ways the Anti-Spaz :

* In process of assembling a strong staff - good coaches want to work for him
* Lots of energy and passion - after 4 years of complacency and going through the motions
* Not afraid to set the bar high - a welcome change after Spaz's "We are what we are" and "We can't be what we were" (even as recently as 5 years ago)"
* Wants attacking defense and got one of the best coaches to execute it in Don Brown
* Great recruiter, who feels recruiting success is dictated by the head coach's actions, and the buck stops with him
* Has a chip on his shoulder and needs to win here
* Excellent motivator

Time will prove me right or wrong - in the interim I'm jazzed for the first time in 4 years and going to enjoy the ride.

I'm not going to lie, I was pretty bullcrap right from the start of that article when BB had pretty much decided after that interview that he was going to hire Daz. So much for due process!

After reading the rest of it, I have a bit more confidence in this guy to get us back to at least mediocrity. But my opinion of Brad Bates is worse than it was before.

He re-energizes the program big time. He has to bring in a good QB coach (not Rogers) and defensive coordinator (not Heater). We may actually get a running game again.

I was never that gung ho on Diaco or Golden. I actually think Adazzio may be a better coaching version of Golden (never been impressed with Miami last 2 years on the field).

I know I am in the very small minority - perhaps 2%.


Very curious how you would look at Golden vs. Addazzio and come up with Addazzio as the better?


I am good with what I said on Daz six years ago. He did re-energize the program. He actually did bring in good coordinators, at least initially. He did not replace them as well. He's a relatively high floor coach. He'll bring up the talent and motivate the program to a level where they can beat the teams they are supposed to.
