    If an outsider were to

    I completely agree with that . They can spend whatever they want but isn’t hilarious that they spent all this money on this head coach who has been pretty dang inconsistent this year? I mean they did lose to us and was able to beat LSU? All that money being spent and I can’t see them winning an SEC west title anytime soon. All with the hopes of competing with Bama and UGA of the world.

    After a night to sleep on it. I think it is the best that we can do. I also see another "Yes Man" who is here to learn and gain more experience rather than address the failures of the offense. It is too early to tell whether he is a QB guru or not, training under Norvell certainly helps. Will Gus let him coach QB's or just his offense as he has always done? They need to develop skills not just familiarity with Gus' offense. I fear that WR scheme will be simplified again in the offensive He has the it factor as a coach, hope that he sticks around when we hire Norvell next year to take over and he will have familiarity with the offense to help Norvell transition to a more dynamic offensive style.

    If Gus lets the guy do his job, this could end up being a very positive thing. For Dillingham this is an opportunity of a lifetime and I’m sure no coach will work harder or with more energy to succeed. Hopefully he will bring some of the Memphis offensive concepts with him. And I like Gus calling his own plays. It’s all on him come Gameday.

    From a money standpoint Texas A&M are the Jones. The last time I looked their endowment is greater than all the other schools in the sec combined. Now are they foolish with their money? Probably..

    This is a better hire then I was expecting. However the whole Gus calls plays with kodi being the passing game coordinator?? So what exactly is this guy doing? Hope he came cheap but whatever glad Gus is owning it anyway

    It just proves that Gus was seriously considering Kodi for the job.

    The only reason this guy came here was because he needed a co-signer lol great hire

    I figure Gus will do a half-ass job next year. Then find himself on the REAL hot seat and actually work and coach his ass off for a season in 2020. He will do very well and get another huge raise and another insane contract extension. Then he will lay back in his hammock and half-ass for as long as he can again.

    Considering the circumstances a homerun hire. With all the resent reports ala Martin and Bentley consider the source. All I’m sayin

    I think this could be a good hire if everyone understands their roles and are left alone to do them. No more micromanaging !!! I like the fact that he is young and that he has worked with some good qb's during his short coaching career. While the qb's natural talents had a lot to do with their success, I am fairly certain that Dilly had a lot to do with it also. I like that he has worked under Norvell for several years. My hope is that he comes in with a passion and fire for his job and that will translate on the field in the development of our offensive players. It's going to come down to our offensive line again. Have they matured and gotten better. Will we have a qb that can run Gus's hurry up offense and be a threat to run the ball. Can we utilize the tight end (as Dilly's offenses have been known to do), and can we be creative and not so predictable on offense. Guess we want know for a few months as we start to hear things come out from bowl prep and spring practice. Gus, it's put up or shut up time. Let's see what ya got.

    Woke up at 3 am to feed my newborn and saw we have a new OC. 😁 No idea about coaching (haha), but think it will be great recruiting wise, for the QBs, and bring a “spark” to the offense in the locker room. For some reason, I feel like that was lacking although I can’t back that up. To me, Chip didn’t seem to have that energy.

    It's a decent hire. Time will tell how good of a hire. Wonder if it will have any impact on KT if he decides to transfer? Welcome aboard, Coach Dillingham and War Eagle!

    So, we finally found one who said yes! I actually think this could be a good hire, hopefully no pretense and everyone understands what his job is and what’s expected of him. Now, let’s see if it works.

    His age doesn't bother me. I just don't believe in his QB coaching experience as some may do considering Norvell is a QB coach since 2012 and was calling the plays. Not saying this kid isn't smart but with only two years as QB coach..how much of it was Norvell and how much of it was Dilli is my question. We're going to find out.

    Well maybe somebody listened to me. I thought Memphis QB's looked good in their games. We will see how it works but didn't see Chip doing squat with our QB's

    Anyone here worrying about this guy's age doesn't pay attention to football. The head coach of the 11-2 L.A. Rams is 32. He was given the job right after he turned 30. More and more guys in their 30s are being given big time head coaching gigs in college too (see Oklahoma and Ohio State). Being older doesn't necessarily equate to better. And if Gus is calling plays anyway, who really cares about this guy being 28?
  22. WarEagle1983

    New OC Hired Kenny Dillingham

    I have the same exact question. I don't see how this will be any different from Rhett or Chip. Even before Chip mostly called the plays...i guess some forgot about when Gus was calling the plays with Rhett. 2013 with NM looked great with Gus calling plays...BUT ummm....we don't have a NM on our roster. Certainly not saying Malik can't be a good QB but unless have an impact QB like NM or Cam...i don't see much difference than before. He only has 2 years of QB coaching experience.

    We hired chip to be the offensive coordinator . This guy seems more or less like a true advisor. Give Gus some recommendations and he choose the best option.

    I need some help: Wasn't this the same reason we hired Chip? QB guy with some passing game elements to his resume? What's different here?

    IMHO One of the biggest issues messing with our offense last year was a philosophical mismatch between Gus and Chip. I think Chip was in charge, but Gus meddled with his play calling because he didn't like what Chip wanted to do. That slowed things down offensively and stopped us from finding rhythm. From what I'm reading, this seems like a good fit. The OC doesn't just call plays. They also plan plays and set offensive practice plans. It sounds like he (with Kodi) will do a lot of the behind the scenes work. I also read elsewhere that, at Memphis, Dillingham gave a recommendation of 3 plays to the head coach who ultimately decided which of the 3 to run. If Gus plans to use him the same way, this could work out well. Dillingham gets to do exactly what he did at his last job. Gus gets to be involved in the offense with no push back from the OC. If things work this way, we may lose some of the non-confident play calling and slow game play we had last year. I don't think this was the end all be all of problems, and things could still go poorly next year. But this was a good hire in terms of both fit and quality. If Gus can't turn it around with this guy, there is absolutely no shred of confidence left to be had by even the strongest Gus supporter.
