Consensus here was that he did a good job in recruiting but the coaching left a lot to be desired based on the d-line's performance. He's now getting hired to coach at the NFL level, and presumably the people making that hire know a lot more about coaching than us losers on a message board.
Makes me wonder if, much like every other issue that has plagued Illinois sports for the last two decades, it was really more about talent on the d-line that it was about coaching. I do think we like to talk ourselves into coaching being the problem in both sports because it feels like an easier fix if that were the case.
Was absolutely one of our better recruiters, but the DL left a lot to be desired based on play.
The #Dolphins are hiring an assistant from the college ranks: Illinois DL coach Austin Clark is joining Miami and will coach the outside linebackers, source said. Just 30 years old, Clark is considered a rising talent in the coaching world. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 9, 2020 .
