The article didn't say what the new coaches' assignments would be, but they are once again very young up-and-comers. I get the feeling that Coach Chizik likes to hire people who remind him of himself 10 years ago.
Haven't heard anything about a running back coach, but I do know a good one available. Kirby Wilson (Mac's first running back coach) is excellent. He was on the staff at the Arizona Cardinals last season.
An Auburn poster on one of the free boards believes that Koonz is going to coach the running backs. I didn't think that made much sense as he was coaching linebackers before, but the press release does say that Chizik hired him to the offensive staff.
Does anyone know the connection with Pearson? I'm curious how a highschool coach from far far away even got on the radar. I suspect Bolt may know him - maybe GC too from his Auburn days. But, what makes this hs coach standout from all others? He may be either a great teacher or have some unique contacts.
