And he may or may not feel the same way now. We will have a pretty good idea after the hire. With so many defenses going 'small' to stop the spread there are opportunities to be ahead of the curve with a different offense. And if he hires a guy that runs a very similar offense to what we have seen the last three years I am just fine with that too.

My first thought as well, but I'm not sure who that would be. Do we have anyone on staff with any OC experience? I know Bleil has some head coaching experience. Pope, Messingham, and Bliel seem to all be very good at their current positions.

I think he Bliel gets a shot at it and I think he deserves a chance. It's not the sexiest hire by any means but offensively the transition should be pretty seamless.
My guess is this job will have a lot of interest. Looks to me like PR lets the OC do whatever they want as far as play calling with not a ton of interference. Lot of talent coming back. Should be a pretty good job.
