Whew! I was hoping we would get one of them two, not in my wildest dreams did I think we could land both of them............Who are they?
2 guys whove spent a lot of time with coaches who use the WCO
Darren Krein is a former stand out player for the University of Miami Hurricanes in the 90's.
Seriously we are now bashing the hirings of the running backs coach and strength coach? Can the Dolphins make any moves without people criticizing it?
PLayed RB at both West Virginia and PSU in the Mid 90's. Started his coaching career in college as RB coach at Princeton (2 years after graduating), then at Shippensburg and Tennessee Chattanooga, before being an assistant for Al Golden at Temple in 2007. He's been with Philly since
Former All-Conference Performer for the Miami Hurricanes. Former 4th round draft pick of the Chargers but never played due to injuries (did play in World Football League with the Barcalona Dragons). As the assistant S&C coach in Seattle since 2001, he is given the most credit in helping Matt Hasselback develop physically into the QB he was for most of the decade.
I don't think that was bashing, I think it was more of a "ok where did they come from?"
Has Krein call Vernon Carey yet to get his Fat Arsh on a diet and in the gym!
Short answer: No
Long Answer: This is finheaven
lets hope they do the job the other coaches couldn't do
Does it matter? People won't be satisfied regardless
You guys mistake sarcasm for criticism relax!
Not as long as we have the same idiots at the top. In reality Im not sure why we fired the runningbacks coach since the OL bares more of the blame.
Nixon apparently has experience with the Wing T, which is what they ran at one of his stops (Shippensberg, I beleive). He has a coaching video, too, starring John Kuhn.
I also found two podcasts featuring him, in case anyone cares about this sort of thing. His are #9 and #10. #10 is on the next page from this link:
Once again, if anyone cares. Not sure I even do, even though I certainly think we needed better coaching for the RBs. Among other things the play action fundamentals were terrible.
So, we have a new Special teams coach, OC, QB coach, RB coach, Strenght & Conditioning coach. Did I miss any?
Yet we retained our Head Coach. Has this much turn over ever happened before without a HC change?
I heard they met at Burger King to rehash old times and then Krein bought Vernon a triple whopper with cheese
wow, i guess you were expecting bill cowher and john gruden to be our RB and head strength coaches.
We still don't have a tight ends or quarterbacks coach. There's reason to believe Daboll might take on the quarterbacks coaching responsibilities but if someone's replaced Deleone I haven't heard of it.
Because we have an idiot for an owner that flew to california for no reason lol

I kind of hope not he has enough on his plate and has not really been a qb coach that often.
Sounds like the turn over we had with the o-line last year. Except that turn over kept going all year seems like.
it happens when an OC leaves or is fired, but most of the time people look to replace position coaches because they either get fired or take promotions to be coordinators.
One thing about all 3 of the new coaches we've hired; they are all under 40 and all 3 have their pro experience from stable organizations (Daboll's 2 year's with Cleveland not included). Daboll learned his craft under Charlie Weis and Josh McDaniels, Nixon (who did work with RBs as well as being a ST assistant) has learned under Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg (as well as Bobby April for ST). And Krein spent time under a very good S&C coach in Mike Clark. Each guy comes from a different coaching tree (well... technically Krein and Nixon can be linked)
So in that way, nobody can complain about the "good ol boy network".
I would bet coaching assistant Dan Campbell will be promoted to tight ends coach. Makes a lot of sense. Also wouldn't be surprised if Chris Palmer is brought in as QB coach.
Actually, a rumor I heard is we are considering going after Brian Callahan; Bill Callahan's son. If true, it would be a risk. He is only 25, but has coached for 5 years (last year as an offensive assistant in Denver)
Also heard Sparano might go to New Orleans (good friends with Peyton) and would ask to hire one of their assistants (more than likely Carter Sheridan)
Matt Hasselback is constantly injured.. Is that a good thing?
You forgot the offensive line coach last season(2009),linebackers coach last season(2009)
defensive coordinator(2009)...Just about every coach has been replaced the past 2 seasons
Watch your back around Sparano and Ireland because they're not accepting any responsibility
He has been injured the last 3 years as he gets older. So I dunno how much you put on him. I've heard nothing but good reviews otherwise
Lighten up already.
Funny you say that since our head coach is suppose to be an OL coach, and our OL is our biggest issue.
I'm getting the sense that we (Ross) is getting away from hiring the best possible person for that position and instead just hiring anyone hoping to find that diamond in the rough..
I'm predicting this is going to be a very ugly next couple of years for our team..
How 'bout a new Equipment Manager? Seriously, how many times do players have to slip and fall, before the right shoes/cleats are issued?
I see where the tight end coach has left also does that mean that only the line and receivers coaches are the only ones left from the old offensive staff?
Please, tell me, what big name strength and conditioning coaches were there on the market?
Find something credible to complain about.
That was a major annoyance. We shouldn't slip & fall on our own field more than our opponents.
ok let me explain something. Good position coaches usually don't leave their current team unless their contract expires, an entire staff is fired, or gets a chance to be promoted. Even then, organizations can deny teams the right to interview one of their assistants unless it is for a head coaching gig (Only reason Chudinzki was able to interview for a job was is contract was up. They refused to let anybody interview Ramsdell. THe Bucs NEVER let anybody interview Raheem Morris to be a DC).
If you are looking for a BIG NAME position coach, there is normally a reason they are unemployed. It should be encouraging that we are going after young coaches.
lol I'll be honest, I can't even name a single strength and conditioning coach
