Happy for you guys with the new HC you hired but have you heard anything about Dave Duggan coming back as your DC? There have been rumblings on the Carolina site. Best wishes and have a Merry Christmas!
In all honesty, he has just been there for, what, 10 month? He seems to be the quieter of the group, at times, aloof during the Old Well Walks before the game. I don't want to knock him or praise him but we, obviously, do not want to see more transition in the new staff. I believe he has been a pretty good recruiter in the area he has and should be good for you all in that area. Hard to know much about his coaching abilities from the limited time and our D was very inconsistent this year and out weak spot but we knew that before the season began. How he will be as your DC is another matter.....he was a position coach at UNC. I wish him and you all well. I have liked watching the Eagles play on TV over the years when I can.
I see a few others of us on here, perhaps they might care to chime in?
You all had him at USM for 4 years as a LB Coach which is what he was for us.......what are your opinions of him? You should know him better than we would.
The players loved Coach Duggan. He has head coaching experience and knows the game of football. He is credited a lot with the defensive turnaround for us when he was named co-coordinator in Larry Fedora's final year. He is a good recruiter who everyone was hoping would be able to come back.
Thanks, Drew, heard nothing bad about him in the short time he was here. I am hearing that the details are being worked out with him and that we are already looking around for his replacement.....should know soon, I think. If this is best for him, I wish him well. Sounds like your recruiting is doing pretty good, so best wishes to you all and Merry Christmas!
