Wally Ake, cornerbacks
Ake falls into that Bruce Hardin/Eddie Wilson old
school set, but he made the cut, and rightfully so. He's done a good job with
the Black Knights' secondary.
Dan Baranik, wide receivers, recruiting
With all due respect, Tucker Waugh is the guy for this job, at
least, the wide receivers part. The unit has slipped since he left for Stanford.
But it's difficult to can a recruiting coordinator at this stage.
something to think of: Does Baranik stay around after this year?
Foreman, offensive assistant
Has done a great job with the running backs and
its nice that Army was able to find a job for him.
His dad is gone, but the kid stays. Good for him. We
should learn more about him this season.
Clarence Holmes, defensive
Boy, could he rush the passer when he played for Army. These days, he
seems to be avoiding the sacks. Holmes has been an assistant under four Army
head coaches, Todd Berry, John Mumford, Bobby Ross and Brock.
A good hire, Lyles has eight years of NFL experience. But
many here will always think why not Ben Kotwica?
coordinator at USMA Prep last year, played on Army's revered 1996 team and
served in Iraq. Imagine all he could share with recruits on visits. Some
Gary Miller, special teams
The kicking, punting and
punt return game has been effective under Miller's watch and he's done what he's
can to solidfy the kick return game. No reason he shouldn't have been
John Misciagna, tight ends
He's always done a good job with
the tight ends and has been around the game for a long time. Misciagna is
John Mumford, defensive coordinator
Imagine how effective his
defense could be if opposing offenses didn't always take over the ball on the
Black Knights' 40-yard line? We all knew Mumford wasn't going
John Tice, offensive line coach
Cut from the same cloth as
Brock. A former tight end, Tice played with Brock in the NFL with New Orleans.
Like Brock, he seems to be tough and no-nonsense. A great hire.
Walsh, offensive coordinator
So what if Troy Calhoun is dismantling the
option at Air Force. We still think it can work at Army. Walsh is innovative, we
just hope is offense can work at West Point, and we wish him all the
Adam Waugh, safeties
Another smart, young coach. He's done a
great job with Caleb Campbell and Jordan Murray. Now, if only the pair could
Tucker Waugh, running backs
Reunited with his kid
brother. He is a talented coach that is destined to be an offensive coordinator
soon. Army wide receivers ran much crisper routes and dropped less balls with
him coaching the unit.
Waugh helped Aaron Alexander become one of the best
wide receivers in Army history and developed Jeremy Trimble and Walter Hill.
Yeah, we like this guy a lot!
Army set for success with new staff
