    He was OL coach here under Sparano. Was fired as OL coach by Patriots last year. Was most recently assistant OL coach with Chargers.

    It's my understanding that he hasn't had much success as an OL coach, but on the flip side, he also probably isn't going to be doing 8-balls or cranking his hog in his office before team meetings.

    Welcome back, Coach.

    Probably not a lot of unemployed guys out there that are world beaters.

    It was completely unrealistic to expect for Chris Kuper who was a year out from an introductory internship to be able to truly take the reigns.
    We absolutely had to hire someone.

    I think attrition played into his patriots results that last year but that didn't stop them from blaming him. And I'm sure belichick was a part of that

    Yup. Patriots OL was a mess when he was there. But as others have said, well, who else is available?

    With 100% complete sincerity, we should have kept Jim Turner. Our OL was actually competent in 2012 for the most part before they saddled him with that 2013 disaster unit of McKinney's corpse, Dallas Thomas, Tyson Clabo, etc.

    Sounds like a desperate hire. I remember he was liked by the o-linemen when he was last here, but, wasn’t Gase said to be interested in someone who he worked with in Chicago? This came out of left field. I’m thinking this is a short term thing until the off season, when they’ll try to find a better option. Where’s Hudson Houck when ya need him?

    I remember him coming in with such high aspirations (from the Giants?) and ending up sucking big time. I'd almost rather take my chances with someone inexperienced but smart and innovative stepping up than a tired old failed journeyman. I understand that mediocre to bad coaches are who ya get mid-season, but this is pretty uninspiring. Hopefully he's a 12 game rental who then gets kicked to the curb!

    When the season ends and HC's get canned there should be many OL coaches to choose from so basically he's a place holder with an opportunity to impress and keep the job if he does it well.

    nothing wrong with hiring an Italian guy....just saying. Amazing there wasn't a HOF coach with nothing to do but waiting for the phone to ring......people on this board are ridiculous some times as to what they expect us to bring in right in the middle of the season

    Good thing we hired him before the Pats rehired him. Brady been hit 32 time and sack 16 times in 5 games and is now being held out of practice due to all the hits he's taking.

    Man I hope it's only temporary, smart and innovative, now that would be a change. I just though of this, since Wayne was in the recycling and garbage business, it seems we keep recycling and picking up garbage, maybe Mr Ross is following the same pattern.

    He needs to wear dark glasses when doing a press conference. He'll look a lot like Sparano then.

    Is it against the law to hire someone who has not been regurgitated throughout the league? geez...

    Not like Bilicheat to take ownership of a loss eh? Never his fault. I'd flip it and say he was the OL coach that helped get them to the AFC champ game. Goes both ways.

    The line was **** with Gug. Why do you think we drafted Pouncey? I don't know what kind of terrible memory you guys have.

    some of you are out of your minds. how many a+ o line coaches are available to hire in the middle of the season. guy has experience, and probably isn’t blasting lines in his office.. i would say this is an upgrade.

    Sometimes it's not the coach's fault. Maybe sometimes it's the player. We drafted a center at 15!!!! why? because we had nothing else, that's why. Can't make chicken salad out of chicken ****

    Our OLine coach just resigned for snorting coke and pledging his love to his hooker. This is the definition of desperate hire.
