I didn't realize he just coached DTs this year. I thought he was still the DL coach. So, I wonder if Bo Davis comes on (or anyone else) if Mike Peterson will be moved to linebacker coach?

I mean, opposing offenses did run through the A gap prett—y efficiently this past season if that was his only job. And I know he had the ‘assist. HC of the Defense’ title or some crazy sounding designation, which as I thought, guaranteed him a multi-year deal being that it was considered higher than ‘coordinator’.

Anywho—-Was Muschamp basically waiting for him to finish out his first contract so he could dismiss him after their third year? Makes me wonder how long things were bad. DT’s didn’t really impress this year. See above.

Also, while raises were being handed out everyone kinda scratched their heads wonder why three didn’t receive one, especially Coach Wolf. Most everyone understood why the other two didn’t get one, Washington and Thompson. But the OL actually looked pretty decent this year—-depending on which side of the argument you’re on I suppose. I personally think he’s always done a terrific job here.

Now, I feel like we know why it played out the way it did; Coach Wolford got a huge raise—-meanwhile the other two were dismissed. Wolford was the decoy and it worked, none of us had the slightest idea what was coming. Can’t say any of us weren’t getting very giddy once we learned rumors were swirling about potential changes on the coaching staff—-didn’t really want to get my hopes up either though so I let it go. Pleasantly surprised.

Truthfully, I was also kinda distracted by how incredibly poor the season ended and REALLY didn’t want anymore bad news. Here’s the weird part, it feels like our season ended so very long ago, yet the NCG was just this Monday past. Which, that game alone was our second, or more like our fifth kick in the balls since the Florida game.

Back to the coaches. With whoever they add, if that’s what it takes, I hope that we gel much better as a staff, which translates to better players, and bigger wins.

$100K is kind of a raise.

Yeah for some reason I thought it was higher than that. Either way, the delay on announcing that makes sense now.

Appreciate the thought you put into your post BUUTTT I hate to tell you that LT leaving was anything but a " we didn't know it was coming". I've heard Lance was leaving at the end of the season since August. Its actually not a suprise at all. Now the change in offense coachingwas something that came as a late suprise buy not Lance, who honestly shouldn't have been on the staff this season.

I'd be excited about that, but he's the DL coach for a NFL team. Does he want to come back to coach at the college level?

What about Travis Jones or Bo Davis?

Default Re: Lance Thompson........ HE GONE

People who are complaining about Lance doing a poor job by pointing to the "A" gap have no idea what they're talking about. We had no true 0/1 technique DL this season. Kinlaw playing at the nose is a total joke - not because he is a bad player, but because that's not where he should be on the DL. We had two choices this season:

1. Play our experienced DL out of position
2. Play true freshmen

So let's not blame Thompson for the DL play this season. He worked with what he had.

However, there were clearly some things going on in the background that we don't all know about. I think we can also upgrade the recruiting efforts there too. Whether it's Hobby, Davis, Jones, or somebody else, I trust Muschamp to get the right guy. With some more depth up front next season, I think you'll see a much improved DL unit.

I suspect that him being gone has more to do with off the field performance than on.
