Doc gives a shout out to Dan Mullen, other coaches applaud their assistants
- by Administrator 3 years ago
At 1-5, Doc Holliday won’t flinch, says his plan is the same as Dan Mullen’s plan: "Anytime you lose a couple football games, everybody starts to analyze things and this and that. The plan to win is infallible ... The plan to win at Mississippi State is no different than the plan to win at Marshall. We're doing the same things and he just beat Georgia and Florida back-to-back. What we're doing is right; it's in place. We can't flinch. We got to continue the plan and work hard and good things will happen. I truly believe that."
Brian Kelly says Notre Dame assistant Chuck Martin (former Grand Valley State head coach) is ready to be a big-time head coach: “Chuck’s ready to be a head coach. He can coach anywhere in the country. Someday, if it opens up an opportunity for him (to be a Division I head coach), I’m sure that I’m going to be the first one on the phone recommending him.”
He didn’t come to Notre Dame to be a head coach (somewhere else). He came here to make sure that Notre Dame gets back to where it needs to be. I know that is his short- and long-term goal.”
Kyle Whittingham praises Utah offensive line coach by Blake Miller: "If we can give up one sack every six games, we'll take that. They've done an outstanding job this year. They really are the nucleus of the offense. The primary reason for our success on offense this year can be directly attributed to the offensive line."
West Virginia defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel explains his style: "I don't concern myself with all that, that's what people end up writing about. I just try to do a good job, and that's the best I can do. I don't worry about whether my name is in the paper or not. You are going to be a good coach [dependent on] whether you have good players; I learned that a long time ago."
Bill Stewart talks about defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel: "Jeff doesn't have an agent, Jeff doesn't promote himself. People think what has made us click has been offensive stars. And, I have said it since I have been head coach, and I will say it again, Jeff's defense has kept us in games. ... I hope he stays under the radar so people leave him alone and he stays here forever."
Mike Leach talks about Dana Holgorsen's style: "He sees things real clear. And he's calm. You don't want a guy who panics, and he wasn't a panicker. I always appreciated that."
