So is some people's opinion ....

I like how taggart is assembling an NFL defensive staff

I'd be happy with that hire. Even though the DBs were horrible this year, I wouldn't place the blame soley on Cooper.

He was awful at Louisville. Tom Jurich's first move as AD when he was hired was to fire him.  That was a long time ago though.  He does have a lot of experience.  Should help FLA recruiting for USF.

If I'm not mistaken we hired him to be a DB coach, not a head coach.

 

This!

 

He's assistant HC to help out Tags make a few decisions since Tag's never been a coach at this level, but Cooper was hired to coach the secondary, which he has a fantastic record at doing.

He even had some good defensive stats at UL.

 

Cooper was head coach of Louisville ('95-'97). His '95 team led the nation in takeaways and finished No. 9 in the nation in scoring defense. The following season, the Cardinals ranked No. 4 in the country in both total defense and rushing defense.

I hope that JP knows something we don't.

If #Bucs DBs coach Ron Cooper ends up at #USF as I believe he will, that would mean 3 assistant coaches for Bucs have "gone back to college"

 

-------------------------------------

 

Technically, but Ron Cooper is a long time college coach who only spent this past season in the NFL.  Not the same thing at all as Breshnahan (sp?).

I think he means 3 assistants with the Bucs will have gone back to the college ranks. Ron Turner to FIU, Ron Cooper to USF and not sure who the third is.

PJ Fleck. The Bucs Wr coach went to Western Kentucky to be the head coach

This is a great get, USF is known for generating defensive talent (without the coaches and staff).  And to assemble a staff with NFL experience will help a lot in establishing credibility and marketing our program.  These coaches will maintain some of the relationships with scouts in the NFL and I'm sure scouts will come to coahes that they are familiar with when asking about potential NFL talent.  So this could be a great opportunity for us to get out of this hole we are in

Except its pretty much over for this year recruiting wise,, I dont think we are going to flip many guys from their top choice at this point,, Ithink the hire could have been made 32 weeks ago and this hire might have had an impact on schoolarships for this year,, we will see
