Adam Schefter @AdamSchefterPanthers hired former Giants assistant coach Al Holcomb as their linebackers coach. Google Holcomb from last season's SB. Great story.
For anybody wondering what the story is here's a linkhttp://www.nj.com/gi...ssistant_a.html
l Holcomb is in his fourth season on the Giants’ coaching staff. This is his second year as a defensive assistant after spending his first two seasons with the team as the defensive quality control coach.Prior to joining the Giants, Holcomb spent three seasons as the defensive line coach at Lafayette. In 2008, the Leopards led the Patriot League in both total defense (303.2 yards a game) and scoring defense (17.5 points a game). Lafayette also allowed the fewest first downs in the league (176), had the best defensive third-down conversion percentage (33.6) and had the lowest passing efficiency by opposing quarterbacks (116.0). Defensive lineman Jason Mills was named to the All-Patriot League first team.
He may be great, I just don't know enough about him. I would have preferred someone more experienced, but have to trust Gettleman's judgement on this, as I'm sure he recommended the guy to Rivera.The above referenced story is nice, but it doesn't tell us anything about his football background or coaching philosophy.
Serves me right to listen to Joe Person..Joe Person @josephpersonHolbrook has never been a position coach before, but spent the last four years on the Giants defensive staff.Never overlook the Patriot league..
Is the only remaining position left to fill the OQC?
Yep, kinda surprised the OLine coach kept his job I guess it's just because he was working with scrubs because of injuries
Oline did a great job toward the end of the season with what he had to work with. Also the line seemed to improve after we stop running the option every two seconds.
Sounds like if Rivera fails, we have a new dc.
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.
