After looking at GTP‘s traffic numbers for the first quarter of this year, one thing’s obvious: changing defensive coordinators sure is good for business. 2013 was a record year for hits, but this year’s numbers are almost 400,000 ahead of last year at the same time. It’s the offseason and traffic usually declines, so that’s a ridiculous bump. It’s not like I’m doing anything differently (i.e., recruiting, which usually gets more attention than anything this time of year), either.
And it’s very similar to what I experienced in 2010, when Grantham was hired. (From a percentage standpoint, the 2010 increase was bigger than 2014.)
I’ll give you guys credit for consistency.
