He's not the only coach rumored to be leaving.

Do we really pay so poorly that we are losing coaches to a community college, or is there more to this?

I think it is a career move for Coach Parker. He's been a position coach and this is an opportunity to be a coordinator.

Actually, Benjy was a DC at Northeast MS CC for two years before coming to Troy. Something else going on. What that could be I haven't a clue!

More job security... Our coaches don't exactly have a cool seat now and days.

I don't know all of his duties. Just being honest. I'm sure he did some good for Troy though. However, a new safeties coach isn't a bad thing. New blood at that position could foster improvement.

Wait a second... We had a safety coach- I mean he was the safety coach? He was the LB coach when we actually had decent LB play. What gives? I guess Bolt took over that assignment and Parker was expendable? Parker did a pretty good job with the linebackers...

I wouldn't look far. Whoever coaches secondary/dc at CHHS knows what he's doing. Think it may be the head coach.

Coach Dean is the DC, last year Chuck Dunn was the DC and is now at Jax State as LB coach. He is part of that Bill Clark crew that I want at Troy and is responsible for building the defense at CHHS.

DT84 has been wanting Bill and crew at Troy for some time now.

Wish him all the best but I can't believe anyone would hire a coach from our defense to be a DC.

As we go into another off-season...let's continue to blame the coaches. It seems to be the default answer, whether it's correct or not. :thumb:

Just curious as to who you blame?? Players?? If players then who recruited them?? If they have talent, who prepares them?

Point was is any one going to hire say the QB coach at Florida to be a OC after their season??

Let's stick with Troy for a second. Parker is a good coach. He got offered a position on that merit. Now, what was your question again?

Your question was: Would I blame the players? They're responsible for executing what they're taught and know. If one player misses his assignment or a tackle, I will not blame a coach for that.

To your question: Yes.

Fair enough. But at the college level, if players are constantly missing assignments and tackles, then their are 2 questions 1) is it a talent issue? ( then who recruited them) 2) why are they missing assignments and tackles

I think these are fair questions. I don't think we can blame 100% of our defensive woes on the players.

Accountability goes both ways. You can recruit a player and get him on campus and he doesn't turn out to be what you thought he would. Sometimes it happens...even the all-powerful saban has players that transfer out. But, it seems easier just to blame a coach than get to the root of the problem; or place the blame at a player's feet.

Just curious. Are we talking about the thug and clown players, or the players with character?

The players do not need to be blamed 99% of the time. They need our support.

The coaches, getting paid lots of $$$, are held to be accountable for the program. They are the CEO's. They decide who gets offers, who plays, what skills are taught, plays that are ran. They even tell the players what weight they have to be at.

They have the overall control. They shoulder most of the accountability.

Valid points...I just don't agree with all of it.
