I am liking the signings of coaching staff, minus the whole Shula thing. But so far, so good IMO

Sounds like a good hire. Can anybody please give a short summary of his story? I don't feel like reading a lot.

... Al Holcomb was my 6th grade gym teacher's name... He was a social studies teacher who got pressed into service & was the most clueless, softest, bitchest guy that ever banned dodge ball because it was "too violent"... I peed a little when i read the title.

Same writer that WFNZ interviewed when Gettleman was hired.

I like guys that work their butts off to get ahead.

The short story is that he has never been a position coach.

He spent 4 years as the Defensive QC Coach.

Breaking down film and running the practice squad.

He's got a 10 y/o son that thinks that you should play cover 2 against the Falcons.
