    Isn't a bit funny that they hire a QB coach before they hire an Offensive Coordinator?
    According to PA on KFAN today the OC will be in place most likely by Friday and it will be Darren Bevell who was the QB coach for the Packers. It also looks like we will be hiring a RB coach very soon as well here is a link to the story.

    http://www.dailynews.com/sports/ci_3390216
    So do you think that Bevell had a say in this hire?
    i doubt that he had a say in the hire but these guys are probably all familiar with each other. The OC will not matter all that much because Childress is an offensive coach and will call the plays but running the D will be strictly as Tomlin sees fit. The whole situation sounds familiar to what took place in Philly.
    Good analysis and good to know, thanks!

    Very nice to see all this happening so quickly ... though being from Charlottesville and a Wahoo fan ... I could always go with a little less Tech.

    Good Pickup! I don't know much about Rogers but he must be familiar with athletic QB's....he's done McNabb Vick and his brother so he's got to be good right?

    As for OC who is this Bevell guy? is he any good?

    Thanks for the Sig LitlHarsh

    I love that Wilf uses his private jet to fly around the country to pick up these guys and then never lets them leave town. It sure is a nice step up from the old cheapscape that we used to have own the team.

    Yeah wilf rocks its his first year and he's got more miles on his jet than Mcombs did the whole time he was here!

    One time i rember him using his jet to get someone in, Antione Winfield, and i'm sure tice had to beat it out of him. All i know is it was damn worth it.

    Darrell Bevell played QB for the Badgers under Brad Childress. I think he is a sound pickup, but its a bit of a jump from QB coach to oc.
