DeHaven is the first coaching hire that actually like this off season. This is an obvious upgrade.

Taylor began his coaching career in 2007 as a graduate assistant at the University of Alabama, his alma mater. He joined the Crimson Tide program in 2000 as a walk-on and played in 38 consecutive games, serving as special teams captain his senior season.

If Taylor was a freshman walk-on at Bama in 2000, then he was a senior at Bama when Mike Shula was in his first year as head coach there.

And if he was a GA at Bama in 2007, he was a GA for Nick Saban during Saban's first year at Bama.

Taylor coached receivers for App State a few years ago before coaching with the Jets... Looks like AE might make it through his rookie contract after all.

i doubt it. AE was QB when he was at App, so he never coached him. I truthfully don't even remember the dude being there. it was during the weird years where we had a new WR coach each year from 08-11. the only thing it could mean would be Brian Quick coming to the Panthers if he were cut by the Rams

Would have been nice to make him the ST coordinator than Rivera's toothless former college roommate.

Interesting to hear that the players didn't like Brian Murphy.

Bizarre. DeHaven isn't really anyone who should be anyone's assistant. But, nice to have him on staff. If no one's mentioned it yet, Taylor's senior year at Alabama was Shula's first as coach down there.

Raised my eyebrow too. Maybe he wants to wind down.

Gettleman was scouting for the Bills during several years of DeHaven's prior tenure there. Wonder if he was the one who reached out to him.
