The Oklahoma blog Blatant Homerism looks at the Sooners’ new secondary coach. Let’s just say optimism abounds.
… When defensive ends coach Chris Wilson accepted an offer to join Dan Mullen’s staff in Starkville this offseason, few OU aficionados would’ve pegged deposed Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez as the likely candidate to fill the rare opening in Norman. A guy who just shepherded the ‘Dawgs defense through two truly awful seasons? Um, sure.
Personally, I think it’s just what the Sooner D needs.
It certainly won’t bother me if he’s right about that, but I can’t help but wince a little when I read: “In Willie Stoops trusts.”
Don’t forget that Stoops hired Jon Fabris away from Georgia once – at least for a few days. Maybe he’s the kind of head coach who likes a challenge.
