Something to remember. There's a shitton of you bitching about Rivera not bringing someone, particularly at OC, onto the staff who has had head coaching experience.

Keep this in mind - Skipper was Fox's assistant HC. Rivera reached out to him and brought him back. The reasons here are more than likely two fold. The obvious being to help our floundering backfield to flourish again. The less obvious being that he can help Rivera with the minute points of head coaching. Particularly time management and overall game management.

One of the reasons that were given, originally, for his release was so that Rivera could gain control of the locker room without any loyalty issues. People thought that keeping Skipper around, being that he was the former assistant HC, would be a locker room distraction, in other words.

He's now a few years removed and can fulfill that need for Rivera, without the threat of a divisive locker room environment.

Jim Skipper was well liked by the players and his experience with this team is greatly needed. He will be a asset to Rivera and get our running game back to where it should be. Things are starting to shape up for next year.

I like Skipper. But this board is not allowed to use "under Fox"... EVER. You all hate Fox, remember?

But I hope he helps Double Trouble get their swag back.

What does not liking Fox have to do with realizing the virtue of having Skipper, complete with his assistant HC experience, on the team?

I do love how I get a random neg rep for the OP. Some people are just fuging retarded.

Some people just want to hate on everything about the team or relish in their righteous indignation so much that any time anyone attempts to point out any potential positive it pisses them off enough to send a neg rep. Really?

"Here's a hire that might help Ron become a more effective HC and here's why."

"Rawr Rivera sucks and everything sucks!!! Neg rep!!"

Honestly, Skipper is a gift from God, at least from Rivera's POV.

You've got a once popular guy who used to be an assistant HC here. He puts zero additional heat on you if/when you screw up a season again because nobody is going to honestly entertain the idea of actually promoting Skipper to HC. It also relieves you of the need to hire someone with a resume in a coaching position of substance that could be a threat.

Well in fairness, the neg rep came from an idiot that made up a bullshit story about getting a fake degree in sports management with a "secondary" degree in PE from a community college that doesn't offer either course of study. Not to mention the fact that CC's don't offer BS/BA degrees, let alone minors.
