Tommy Tuberville clues us in on what he’ll be looking for in his next offensive genius coordinator (h/t Chip Towers).
During the speech, he said he was committed to the spread. Afterward, he said the next coordinator he hires doesn’t have to be “a spread guy” like the ousted Tony Franklin.
“He’s gonna have to know some spread,” Tuberville said. “Everybody runs spread, but we’re still gonna be committed to running fast-paced and throwing the ball down the field. It’s no different.”
Don’t you have to be a spread guy to run the spread?
“You have to know the spread,” he said. “You don’t have to be a guy that’s just every-down spread. You gotta know other offenses, too.
“Like me. I know the five-man (defensive) front, four-man front, three-man front. I base out of the four-man front, but I run them all. You gotta know them all. You gotta be a football coach.”
That should certainly narrow the search down. The man is clearly flailing about, hoping he’ll somehow catch lightning in a bottle on the next go around. While that ain’t coaching, it is kinda sad.
