Mr. Scot

QB Coach Replacement

31 posts in this topic

Friend on another board who did a little research on him referred to him as a "QB technician". I'd much prefer that to "throw however you feel like" McCoy.

Scherer is said to be an oustanding quarterbacks' tutor and to have been well-liked by Anderson and Quinn.

Wow, that's really good to hear. Hopefully, he can help Delhomme out with his mechanics and footwork to make some accurate throws, and teach the young-uns a thing or two about a thing or two.

Rip Scherer, Cleveland’s assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach under recently-fired Romeo Crenel, was in Charlotte for an interview Saturday and was expected to land the job.

Scherer, 56, formerly worked with Carolina offensive coordinator Jeff Davidson when Davison was on the Browns’ staff.

Wow, this sounds like quick acting on Davidson's part. He must have heard the news and told Fox he'll "reach-out" to an old working partner real quick. 24 hrs later, new QBs coach.

Would be nice to get a guy who could actually help Moore along. Better yet he could help Delhomme improve his game, maybe tell him to spread the ball around some more.

Or better yet, we actually runs plays for others

Jake hasn't the spread the ball around since week 1 against the Chargers

I like the change as I was never really sold on McCoy.

As for Rip via wikipedia:

Rip Scherer is the quarterback coach and recently promoted assistant head coach for the NFL's Cleveland Browns. He previously served as offensive coordinator for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, the offensive coordinator for the Kansas Jayhawks, the head coach of the Memphis Tigers, the head coach of the James Madison Dukes, the offensive coordinator of the Arizona Wildcats, the offensive coordinator of the Alabama Crimson Tide, the quarterbacks coach/offensive coordinator of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, the quarterbacks coach of the Virginia Cavaliers, the running backs coach of the Hawaii Warriors, and the quarterbacks coach of the NC State Wolfpack. He started his coaching profession at Penn State in 1974

Rip Scherer is the cousin of Kevin Colbert, Vice President of Football Operations for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is also the Son of longtime Pittsburgh area High School Coach Rip Scherer Senior and the Nephew of former Pitt End Dick Scherer.

McCoy was a bad coach. What young QB did he ever groom into respectability?

Good riddance
