he's been a position coach and DC at lower levels. Maybe you needed the longer story.
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.
I get that it's not a sexy name, but like was already said earlier - guys that work their butts off to get ahead, not the worst thing in the world. I'm sure being a third tier assistant for the Giants isn't the sexiest thing in the world, but consider that the same tier of coach from Carolina received four promotions (two here, two with the Browns).
