Kiffin's Coaching Staff
d-owl saidCharlie Weis, Jr. leaving – going to the Falcons. Can't be mad at him for that. Good luck!Posted On: Feb 17th 2017, 11:46 AM
Didn't we recently hire Perkins? Think he may replace Weis Jr?
GeorgiaOwl saidCongrats to him. Amazing that our "former" coaches from the Kiffin era are being recruited away by THE NFL! FAU and Coach K have raided the level, we shall see that on the field as well!Posted On: Feb 17th 2017, 2:23 PM
I think Charlie Weis Jr., will become a superstar coach in several years. Really impressed by his resume at such a young age.
Charlie Partridge also had one of his FAU assistants, Nick Caley, leave for the NFL's New England Patriots a couple of years ago.
Great to have coaches who others value. People always like to worry about whether a head coach will leave for greener pastures, yet I don't think we have ever had a head coach in any sport leave for a higher profile job except for maybe Doherty in basketball who went to SMU. I welcome the possibility of getting coaches who do such a great job that others want to steal from us. Then it's up to us to try and keep them. It means we are headed in the right direction.
