That's on positional coaches a lot more than it is on the defensive coordinator. Oh well, at least they'll all be new faces too.
that was my thinking as well but they kept talking about him being a teacher. i don't know what they are trying to infer by that but it was a parallel that i drew that might have some merit.
i was just looking at darin gantt's blog and he said he talked to the colt's MLB gary brackett about meeks and what he said was interesting...
i'm not crazy about the extension of tony dungy part but what was said about him making sure everyone was accountable and that they were making plays when they had to sure could fit what i was thinking. making sure that the pieces were there to make sure the players were getting it.
-- Just talked to Colts MLB Gary Brackett, who described new Panthers defensive coordinator Ron Meeks as "an extension of Tony Dungy."
Brackett talked about the calm way Meeks approached fixing the defense prior to the start of the 2006 playoffs. That was the year they were worst in the league against the run, but with a few injured starters back in time, they turned it around to win a championship.
"Much like coach Dungy, his whole philosophy is 'less is more,'" Brackett said. "Playing our scheme, making sure everyone was accountable, and everybody making plays when we had to. That's it."
