…but Coach Grantham officially states that Garner will indeed coach D-line next year. This includes the nose tackle and defensive ends in the new 3-4 scheme.
So, that leaves us with an extra coaching position. PWD has his take on a special teams coordinator, and I agree with him. I don’t think it makes sense to hire a full-time special teams guy. The entire system wasn’t broken, just a few major parts. Luckily, those are fixable. My guess would be we hire someone to work with linebackers, specifically outside linebackers. That’s definitely what CTG would prefer.
Update: per David Hale, “As for the final coach, Grantham said it is likely to be a linebackers coach, and said he has no preference whether it’s inside LBs or outside LBs.”
