    Good riddance! He was a zone-coverage professor and quite frankly our DB's - save for Weddle - were always poor fits and poorly disciplined in operating in zone so this really is addition by subtraction in my eyes. Chances are this just means a promotion for Cris Dishman, but who knows... with Bisaccia headed to Tennessee (UT not the Titans) and now this, the rats can't get off the sinking ship fast enough. Maybe eventually we'll run out of guys we can promote and actually have to bring in some fresh blood.

    Any suggestions as to replacement? Rod Woodson was fired by the Raiders??

    Like I said, 95% chance that all this means is Dishman gets the bump-up. In my own little fantasy world... Woodson or bring Gil Byrd home.

    Had no idea that Bisaccia was out of here after only one year...he did a good job I guess...not great, but good.
    I am happy that Wilks is finally moving on, maybe now we'll get someone that can teach our db's how to play closer to the line of scrimmage and not let wr's get a 10 yd running start. Dishman (liked him as a player) has the stink on him, so hopefully they bring someone in from the outside.

    With the thin ice this entire staff is on SD probably isn't that appealing for assistants looking for jobs.

    I don't know who coaches the LSU DBs, but that guy deservers a look. John Chevis?

    All I know is you can be sure Norv and AJ screw it up and hire another stiff like Manusky.

    We can cut off all the limbs that we want (Or let them walk, same thing), until we cut off the head, nothing will change.
