Well, a defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator leaving for greener pastures?

While perusing this blog post surveying the current defensive schemes employed in the NFL (worth a look if you’re still checking into differences between various 4-3 and 3-4 schemes), I came across a comment that had me running to the Tech boards… and sure enough, it’s all over the place that Giff Smith is leaving Georgia Tech to become a member of the Buffalo Bills staff.

If so, that’s Chantastic.  Smith has been an excellent recruiter for the Jackets for a number of years.  We here at GTP wish him the best of luck in his new job.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Any disappointment I felt from reading the news at the AJ-C that Georgia is likely to lose a four-star defensive back recruit as a result of Martinez’ departure was made up for by this quote from the kid’s athletic director regarding how recruiting has gone of late:

“… He’s planning to visit Southern Cal next week. Monte Kiffin has been very persistent. He’s probably been in here more than is legal. Of course they don’t pay attention to the rules.”

And the NCAA is on the line in three… two… one…
